ABC has rescheduled the third season premiere of Body of Proof for February 19th. The medical-crime drama had been scheduled to return on February 5th but would have been pre-empted a week later by the State of the Union address. Network execs wanted to avoid that so they’ve delayed the premiere.
Here are the details via press release:
