UPDATED Aug. 24 to reflect a new time period for “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

Here is ABC’s fall 2017 schedule. All times are ET/PT (live sports ET only), with new shows in italics. Highlights and analysis below the grid.

  7 p.m. 7:30 p.m. 8 p.m. 8:30 p.m. 9 p.m. 9:30 p.m. 10 p.m. 10:30 p.m.
Monday Dancing With the Stars The Good Doctor
Tuesday The Middle Fresh Off the Boat (new time) Black-ish (new night) The Mayor Kevin (Probably) Saves the World
Wednesday The Goldbergs Speechless Modern Family American Housewife (new night) Designated Survivor

Friday Once Upon a Time (new night) Inhumans 20/20
Saturday Saturday Night College Football
Sunday The Toy Box (new night) America’s Funniest Home Videos (new time) Shark Tank (new night) Ten Days in the Valley


Well, that’s a lot of movement. ABC is making big changes to Friday and Sunday nights in the fall, along with small tweaks to its Tuesday and Wednesday comedy blocks. New shows come in at 10 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Sunday.

First, the big changes: Friday gets a makeover with “Once Upon a Time” moving from Sunday to lead off the night, followed by new Marvel series “Inhumans” — and, later in the season, “Agents of SHIELD.” “20/20” remains in place at 10.

On Sunday, the only holdover is “America’s Funniest Home Videos,”  albeit in a new timeslot at 8 p.m. It leads into a relocated “Shark Tank,” forming a big unscripted block from 7-10 p.m., with “The Toy Box” leading off the night. Limited series “Ten Days in the Valley,” starring Kyra Sedgwick, gets the 10 p.m. spot.

Comedies “Black-ish” and “American Housewife” are swapping nights, with “Black-ish” moving to 9 p.m. Tuesdays. It will lead into new comedy “The Mayor” and new drama “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” (formerly “The Gospel of Kevin”), starring Jason Ritter. “The Middle” stays put at 8, with “Fresh Off the Boat” moving up to 8:30.

“American Housewife” slides into the post-“Modern Family” timeslot on Wednesday, while the rest of the night remains intact. Thursday’s TGIT lineup is also in full force, with the (now confirmed) final season “Scandal” set to join “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder” in the fall.

The other new fall series is medical drama “The Good Doctor,” starring Freddie Highmore. It will air at 10 on Monday nights following “Dancing With the Stars.”

“American Idol” is the headliner among midseason shows. Returnees “Agents of SHIELD” and “Quantico” are also on deck for later in the season, along with a host of new series: Comedies “Alex, Inc.” (formerly the untitled Zach Braff show) and “Splitting Up Together” and dramas “The Crossing,” “Deception” and “For the People.”
