A few notes:

  1. As of this writing, ABC hasn’t announced the premiere date for  Secret Millionaire which will air Fridays at 8pm or Body Of Proof which both will air Fridays at 9pm.  ABC likely will air encores of new series airing Monday-Thursday in those time slots for the first couple of weeks of the season.
  2. An official date for the return of V has not yet been announced.  Plans call for it to air on Tuesdays at 9pm in the “Dancing with the Stars Results Show” slot in between cycles of “Dancing with the Stars.”  The fall cycle ends in late November so look for V to premiere in late November or early December on Tuesdays at 9pm.
  3. There are cable premieres included below, but I focused only on scripted primetime shows.  I’m sure I missed some of the scripted shows on cable, if so, post in the comments and I’ll update the tables.
