Like NBC and FOX, ABC is taking a relatively conservative approach to its fall 2019 schedule, with very few new series premiering and only a handful of returning titles shifting nights and time slots.

“Bless This Mess” is set to return for its second season in the fall – as opposed to its midseason premiere this spring – taking over the post-“Conners” 8:30 p.m. time slot that “The Kids Are Alright” filled this year. “Bless” will act as the lead-in for “Mixed-ish,” which is set to air at 9 p.m., pushing “Black-ish” to the 9:30 p.m. half-hour.

The network’s new drama, “Emergence,” will round out Tuesdays at 10 p.m., the same time slot that “The Rookie” inhabited in its first season.

Meanwhile, “The Rookie” will still be airing in the 10 p.m. hour, but has been moved to Sunday nights. It will be following three hours of unscripted programming, including “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Shark Tank,” and the new Tiffany Hadish-hosted “Kids Say the Darndest Things” reboot.

Elsewhere, “American Housewife” will be moving from its current 8 p.m. Tuesday night time slot to Fridays at 8 p.m., where it will be airing alongside “Fresh Off the Boat,” which is shifting to the night’s 8:30 p.m. half-hour.

The network’s only tweak to its Wednesday night lineup comes in the form of the new Cobie Smulders-led, “Stumptown,” which will be airing in the 10 p.m. time slot that “A Million Little Things” originally premiered in. Monday nights will also stay the same season-to-season, as both “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Good Doctor” return in their usual time slots.

ABC is sticking to the same Thursday night schedule it employed earlier in the spring as well, with “Grey’s Anatomy” at 8 p.m., “A Million Little Things” at 9 p.m., and “How to Get Away with Murder” at 10 p.m.
