ABC announces 2009-10 premiere dates
ABC has became the first network to announce fall premiere dates for the 2009-10 season, unveiling most of its launching schedule on Tuesday (June 9).
It's doubtful that ABC's premieres will have any impact on the other networks because, for the most part, ABC has elected to kick off its season in late September in line with the official Nielsen start of the season. CBS will probably also launch at around the same time, FOX and The CW can be counted on to jump the gun a little and NBC will do whatever wacky thing NBC wants to do, though the network revealed last week that "The Jay Leno Show" will premiere on Sept. 14.
While Saturday Night Football will premiere on Sept. 5 and "20/20" will premiere on Friday, Sept. 11, the bulk of ABC's schedule will start the week of Sept. 21 and the following week.
That's the week viewers will welcome back "Dancing with the Stars," "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and "Desperate Housewives," as well as the series premieres for "The Forgotten" (assuming the lead roles are successfully recast), "Modern Family," "Cougar Town," and the already-exhaustively-hyped "Flash Forward."
The following week, "Shark Tank," "Hank" and "The Middle" will begin, while "America's Funniest Home Videos" will return.
Viewers will have to wait for Oct. 9 for the Friday premiere of "Ugly Betty," but at least you'll get a two-hour episode. "Supernanny" will be back on Oct. 16.
ABC has yet to determine return dates for "Private Practice" and "Brothers & Sisters" or a premiere for "Eastwick."
