As the 2011-12 broadcast season comes to an end tonight it's fitting that Wednesday night is the last night of the 2012-13 schedule we'll take a peek at (the other nights are here).

Six new shows on Wednesdays (same as Tuesday night).  Three new comedies, and three new dramas.

ABC puts rookie sitcom The Neighbors in the post-Modern Family "We really don't want to cancel this show" timeslot followed by the new musical drama Nashville.

Fox has sophomore The X Factor scheduled for two hours, instead of 90 minutes, with no 30 min "sitcom launch" slot. Perhaps Britney and Demi need that extra half hour, it certainly didn't do the sitcoms any good.

CBS goes with exactly the same line up as Fall 2011.

NBC puts two rookies into their 8pm comedy block, Animal Practice and Guys With Kids. New drama Chicago Fire follows Law & Order:SVU, which moves back to 9pm in a slot that didn't treat it particularly well in the past.

The CW pairs rookie drama Arrow with the relocated from Friday veteran Supernatural.

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

    “Nashville” is the best new show of the fall. I’m stunned ABC made it (well, obviously with a lot of help from Lionsgate) but I certainly hope it’s the start of good things to come. It’s a terrific pilot. (Even if I wish the title had another word or two in it to avoid comparisons to a certain FOX ripoff of “The Hills”.)

    Not so great? The thing in front of it.

    That said, I don’t think the monkey hook is as strong as NBC believes. It’s a bit tacky and gimmicky. The trailers are quite poor too. We’ll see.

    Yes, NBC really thinks a monkey is going to be the answer to their ratings woes. They thought that in 1983 too.

    Maybe Crystal can program the prime-time lineup for them next year? I’m pretty confident she can do a better job of it.

    I hate the Castiel character, and have no opinion on Mr. Collins because I have no information or desire to glean information about the actor. Am I allowed to harbor no ill will towards the actor while wishing the character was long gone (if he had to be introduced at all, his sell-by date, as far as I’m concerned was the end of Season 4)? Does that mean I’m trolling? More opining: disliked Season 6 *Spoiler Alert* due to emasculated Dean, Gumby and the Sam-substitute, Soul-less Sam, and Castiel popping into scenes out of nowhere in order to be pointless and fingernails-on-a-chalkboard level annoying. Season 7 was better, but I attribute that to individual episodes rather than the season as a whole. It’s been so long since we’ve had a true brother-moment, I’m beginning to doubt I’d recognize one.
    I’m giving Season 8 a chance, but more than a couple episodes of the Dean/Cas show, and I’m heading for the hills. Fortunately the hills are populated by Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and (the future) Revolution these days.

    @RS

    Changing your name to continue trolling I see. You’re truly pathetic.

  • KS

    @Stoner

    I don’t even know who RS is. It happened that we both hate Castiel. I always play fair. And do you really think, my English is upto the level of RS?

  • stoner

    Oh god. I can’t stop laughing…

  • KS

    @stoner

    confirm with Robert/Bill.

  • stoner

    So, the usernames are identical, both hate Misha Collins, and type in the same fractured English. Proxy servers are wonderful, aren’t they?

  • KS

    @stoner

    Fractured English? Really? His/Her English is better than mine. And do you really think, I would use my proxy server for the sake of hating someone? Don’t you think I have got better jobs to do?

  • KS

    @Stoner

    I am starting to doubt if you are Misha Collins.

  • stoner

    @KS

    Haha. No, I’m definatly not Misha Collins. When did I ever claim to be? Idiot.

  • American

    Where’s Off Their Rockers? I don’t see it anywhere else, but I heard it’ll be around for a second season. Will it be a midseasoner or was it silently cancelled?
