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:

  • Jase

    This is a tough night. There’s way too many shows that I like (New Girl, Raising Hope, Happy Endings, etc…), so I’m going to have to sign up for Hulu+ again just to keep up with everything.

  • Person of Interest – TV’S #1 NEW DRAMA

    Only NCIS and Go on. Everything else is boring to me.

  • NJ Viewer

    Nothing interesting here.

  • Mike S.

    Tuesday night will be movie night, there’s not one show on any network that i will watch.

  • Networkman

    Well, I did watch the night & time premiere of both Go On and New Normal. And I must say that I enjoyed the second episode of Go On better than the pilot. This show really has potential. It is not laugh out loud funny but it is charming. There are some goofy characters that are starting to grow on me. I really like Bill Cobbs in this show. And Sarah Baker who plays Sonia made me chuckle more than once. So, I’ll be back for another episode to see if this can continue.

    The New Normal has heart. It is not really funny but just so cutesy. The characters are believable and you can feel the chemistry amongst the couple and their new extended family. I’ll see where it goes.

  • Derek

    Wow…guess Tuesday will be one of my playing video games / reading comic books nights :P Nothing for me here…

  • michael

    Raising Hope & Ben & Kate

    Happy Endings
    New Girl
    The New Normal


  • Mike

    I predict Dancing With the stars to be canceled within the next year

  • Networkman

    Remember Dancing with the Stars will be two hours for several weeks before Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B.. premieres. So Go On and The New Normal will have to face the second hour of DWTS, which is usually the strongest. New Girl faced DWTS last season and was able to withstand the competiton. They share a different audience. The question is will some viewers that have tried Go On return back to DWTS once it premieres?

  • Networkman

    I feel ABC should premiere Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B. in the 10pm hour for the first week before returning it back to its schedule time period. For their first episodes, let them follow DWTS strongest hour and have it free from the other comedies. It will be up against the week Parenthood and older skewing Vegas.

  • Phillip

    I can’t believe Dancing with the Stars is still running! We don’t need awful competition shows. Especially with “has been’s” lol

    Tuesday nights- Happy Endings (live)
    New Girl
    Ben and Kate
    Don’t Trust the B—-…
    The New Normal (live)

  • Byron

    I’ll watch Hart of Dixie and Emily Owens, M.D. just to see how this combo will work out for them. DVRing the ABC comedy block.
