Continuing our night by night look at the Fall 2012 schedule we move to Tuesday night.  Six new shows on the night: four comedies and two dramas. Along with Wednesday, the night with the most new shows.

ABC  doesn't have any rookie shows, but pushes Dancing With The Stars results show an hour earlier, and moves in a 2nd and 3rd year sitcom from other nights to 9pm, followed by Private Practice in the place of Body of Proof.

Fox launches a 2 hour live action sitcom block led by relative ratings weakling Raising Hope. I am not hopeful.

NBC brings The Voice results show into the Fall along with rookie sitcoms Go On (Matthew Perry vs. Happy Endings which was renewed over his last sitom, Mr. Sunshine) and The New Normal, joining Tuesday fixture Parenthood.

CBS launches new drama Vegas where Unforgettable failed last season. Les Moonves is predicting victory, but Les is always predicting victory.

The CW goes all medical on the night, as Hart Of Dixie moves to a new night and leads into the new series Emily Owens, M.D. Sadly, Emily is unlikely to be the traffic draw for us that Ringer was last season. Whether it will live longer or not, we'll have to wait and find out.

Take a trip down memory lane with last season's 2011 Tuesday Fall schedule:

  • Dana

    Parenthood, always. And I will try Go On. I hope it will be good and successful.

  • Jenny

    What is CW thinking? Putting my favorite show Hart of Dixie up against the top rated shows on television?

    CW putting Hart Of Dixie on Tuesday at 8 pm against: Dancing with the Stars results on ABC, The Voice on NBC, and NCIS on CBS , the top rated shows in the 18 – 49 ratings and viewers.

    CW, if you do not want Hart Of Dixie, please give it to another network where they will know how to schedule it and promote it.

    @ Jenny

    So you really think another network would take HOD if they had the chance? Regardless of its spot on the schedule, you should just be thankful that the CW renewed it.

    I’m guessing that if ABCs comedy block crashes, A23 gets cancelled and HE replace The Neighbours in the post Modern Family slot (since HE has a 22 episode order) With LMS and Reba going to 8pm Tuesday and the DWTS Results show going back to 9.

  • Syd

    Doesn’t that guy from ‘The Book of MORMON’ star in ‘The New MORMAL’…

  • JS

    Tuesdays only has 1 show worth anything- and that’s New Girl on Fox.. Not worth even watching TV on Tuesdays, NFL Network should move their games to Tuesdays and get the new NFL week off to a real early start.

    Vegas could be a big hit for CBS, especially with the lack of viable competition.

  • Matt

    Bill did you actually compliment to Ringer? I’m shocked.

    Since I’m boycotting The CW for cancelling Ringer, I do like Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B so my cliffhanger Tuesdays will be replaced with silent laughter.

    Though here’s hoping that Ringer is brought back as a mid-season replacement in 2013! #Ringer2013

    SMG will have just given birth. Even if the CW wanted the show back, which they don’t, it wouldn’t happen because of that.
