    Where’s V? Is that coming back midseason?

    • Tinuviel Undomiel

      I think V is returning in November

      • SmartMan

        I think it only got 13 episodes, for midseason (jan or feb?)

    • blg

      I’m with you. The only one I care about is V. Can’t wait.

  • Beep

    wow those are some late premiere dates for DH & B&S. they usually begin first or second sunday of september. but i guess it’s a good movie to avoid repeats.

    and even bigger: grey’s is switching back to the 1-hour premiere. i liked having grey’s return for the past two seasons with big and fulfilling two-hour premieres, esp. coming back from that incredible and major finale. but i trust the team. and on the plus side, practice returns 1 week earlier then! can’t wait for modern family, cougar town to return as well and to see the amazing greg berlanti’s new show no ordinary family!

    • Andy

      That’s not actually true. I can’t speak for DH but B&S always comes back the last sunday in September.

  • john

    yeah….somewhere on that lame schedule should be “Better Off Ted,” but ABC, idiots that they are, decided not to renew that hysterical show!

    • SmartMan

      I was hoping that Better With You was “Better Off Ted” renamed, but no it was some new show

      • Sarah

        Gah! I initially thought the same thing. I did a double take when i saw “Better” only to be disappointed.

    • Piper

      I know. I think of the great shows that ABC has canceled, like BOT and Pushing Dasies, then see the junk they are putting on and all I can do is shake my head and sigh at network stupidity. Modern Family is the only thing there that interests me at all.

  • Phil

    Hey! Does anyone know if ABC axed HAPPY TOWN sincer they’ve been running reruns of CASTLE Wednesdays at 10PM?!

    • Tinuviel Undomiel

      Happy Town was axed months ago

      • Phil

        Like OMG!? REALLY?! IU knew that you idiot! But ABC said they were still committed to run the entire series this summer, starting with the new eps at the end of May, but now it seems they’ve axed the last few episodes to the land of EASTWICK….

    • ti

      they played like 3 or 4 episodes in June, but unfortunately the only way to see the last 2 episodes in on-line.

  • Briana

    Yes! Castle still is on Mondays! Isn’t Hawaii 5-0 airing that same time too? Oh man. Alex O’Loughlin or Nathan Fillion? Tough choice. Nathan Fillion wins!

    • Bree

      Easy choice…Alex O! :P

  • SmartMan

    Wow, I watch none of these shows, I hope No Ordinary Family is good, or I won’t be watching anythin on ABC. This makes me miss LOST even more.

  • Kathy B

    Only watch Castle.

  • Ramo

    Makes me realize how little I watch ABC. Love Modern Family and for some reason I still watch Desperate Housewives. But that’s it. I might give the Chiklis show a try.

    • Ramo

      Oh and I’ll watch V when it comes back. But I will miss Lost and Better Off Ted terribly.

  • SLB

    Wow. Grey’s Anatomy is the only ABC show i watch now. Probably be the last. Maybe they should stop cancelling good shows.

  • mary q contrary

    Wait. SATURDAY Night Football?! Oh, snap! This makes me salivate for the new season even more.

  • sparkle the gym bag

    what a weak line-up…modern family only thing worth taping….

  • molly

    DWTS – I can see the lineup now: Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Tiger Woods, Britney Spears, Johnny Weir, Lawerence Taylor, Alec Baldwin, etc will be the headliners

    • Anona Muss

      You silly, LT already did this show. Alec Baldwin is currently successful again. Wow, so is Britney Spears. Well, if Kate can do the show, why not Jon, gosh darn it! How about Michael Vick, Vince Young and JaMarcus Russell?

  • Anona Muss

    Only interested in these rich, singles if they watch Modern Family, ABC, Wednesdays. Otherwise…

  • Anastasia

    DWTS = Lame
    Extreme Home Makeover = Lame

    It’s time for the reality show craze to be over, enough already! Those shows are so lame I can’t believe anyone wastes their time watching them. Let’s get some actual TV shows back on TV, not two nights a week of primetime wasted with has-beens making fools of themselves. Sheesh.

    • yeah, we need more shows like hank, the forgotten, melrose place, the beautiful life, and brothers! and don’t forget til death! because all scripted shows are inherently better than reality television! woo!

  • coacoav

    Watching Hawaii Five-0
    Castle ending last season was lame.
