Continuing our night by night look at the Fall 2012 schedule we move to Wednesday night.

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

After originally scheduling rookie sitcom The Neighbors in the post-Modern Family "We really don't want to cancel this show" slot, they perhaps thought "We really don't want to waste that slot on a loser show" and moved it to 8:30 after The Middle. Then new musical drama Nashville follows at 10pm.

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:

  • Luke

    The CW for me :] and DVR The Middle.

  • Bob Jones

    (Green) Arrow, Criminal Minds, Dark Blue (I mean CSI).

  • charmedcraft

    Can’t wait for SPN. I’ll give Arrow a chance and record Modern Family. I never got into X-Factor and now that they hired that nut job Britney (completely over-rated), I will for sure NEVER watch it.

  • One eye

    Arrow and SVU here.

  • Ames

    I really wanted to watch Arrow but Survivor and The X Factor are both at 8!

  • Holly
  • addict

    ABC’s comedies except for the neighbors … seems kind of cheesy to me. and personally i am PUMPED for arrow. i really hope it turns out to be a big hit for the cw

  • Jase

    Survivor, SPN and Chicago Fire for sure. Likely will catch Arrow and Modern Family on Hulu+.

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

    Worst day of the week for me. Mostly with CBS so bad day. And revenge is gone. I watch only CSI but later(at once aroun cristmas) Never understand how people can watch Criminal minds. Its scary boring for me. Not even close to CBS dramas.

    I will watch Nashvile.

  • NJ Viewer

    The only thing here I want to check out is “Arrow.” “Nashville” might be OK if it doesn’t get too soapy.

  • Felti

    After seeing Guys with Kids last night I will definitely put that one on my checklist of shows to watch during the week.

  • Derek

    Yeah, the wife likes Criminal Minds a lot so I’m sure we’ll be tuned in for that and may stick around for CSI if it sounds good…

  • Scarps

    I wish Elisabeth Shue would leave CSI. Such a underrated actor, but terrible since she hasn’t been doing anything for a while.

  • Kissan

    Watch Nashville everybody!

  • sarah

    I’m not going to watch this year CW! Arrow? nothing original always the same story with the actor half naked to attract the female audience “stupid.” Supernatural? already overworked and last year was a flop, they should delete it!
