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.
