ABC Fall Schedule: Abbott Elementary, Big Sky on Move, DWTS' Replacement Revealed, Hilary Swank Follows Grey's

ABC Fall Schedule 2022

ABC is the latest broadcast network to unveil it’s 2022 Fall TV schedule (following NBC), and there’s less comedy, more Bachelor in Paradise and a new primetime Jeopardy series. Also: Several series are moving to new nights (including one freshman hit).

♦ ABC is downsizing its comedy presence from two nights (Tuesday and Wednesday) to just one (Wednesday). As part of that consolidation, red-hot Abbott Elementary is moving from its old Tuesday perch into Wednesday’s 9 pm anchor position. The Conners, which previously had the Wednesday-9 spot, will now kick off the night at 8 pm, where it will lead into The Goldbergs.

♦ Summertime staple Bachelor in Paradise is getting a regular season upgrade, airing both on Mondays from 8-10 pm (replacing DWTS) and Tuesdays from 8-10 pm.

A Million Little Things, which is likely heading into its final season, is being held until midseason. Also warming the bench until ’23: Sophomore comedy The Wonder Years and the new Gina Rodriguez comedy Not Dead Yet.

♦ The new Hilary Swank drama Alaska has scored the plum Thursdays-at-10 perch following Grey’s Anatomy, bumping former occupant Big Sky to Wednesdays-at-10. Meanwhile, The Niecy Nash-Betts-led Rookie spinoff will air Tuesdays-at-10.

♦ A new weekly celebrity edition of Jeopardy! (more details here) will be paired with Celebrity Wheel of Fortune on Sunday night.
