ABC has announced their upcoming schedule for the 2010-11 season. On the whole it looks a lot like the network’s current lineup. ABC had a few holes in their schedule to fill but not many.
Despite having a pretty solid line-up, ABC has ordered 10 new shows for next season. That’s a good move considering that many of their top shows — Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, etc. — have been around for quite awhile and are losing steam. If they don’t build new programming to take their places then ABC could find themselves in the same situation that NBC did a few years back. They kept their shows on for too long and weren’t aggressive enough in finding replacements.
V is being held until mid-season but might return by November, airing on Tuesday nights after Dancing with the Stars wraps for the fall cycle. V’s ratings weren’t strong enough to mandate a second season and was truly on shaky ground after a several month hiatus. Giving it a six to nine month doesn’t sound like it will help ratings.
Below is ABC’s new fall schedule. If you don’t see your favorites, be sure to check out our list of ABC cancellations and renewals.
