ABC Announces 2011-2012 Primetime Schedule: Cougar Town Bumped To Midseason, Plus More Changes image
Today ABC announced their primetime schedule for the 2011-2012 season, bolstering their Wednesday night comedy bloc with two new shows, pairing their new Charlie's Angels reboots with Grey's Anatomy on Thursday night, and added two male-led sitcoms to Tuesdays, with Last Man Standing and Man Up. To accommodate the two new Wednesday night shows, Suburgatory and Revenge, they bumped Cougar Town to a midseason premiere, a move that may frustrate the show's fans but often winds up leading to a stronger comedy lineup by the time midseason rolls around.

There are a few other changes, including the shift of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to Fridays (now competing against KItchen Nightmares) and Happy Endings getting Cougar Town's current prime spot after Modern Family. Check out the full fall lineup here, and come back throughout the day as we update the list with full descriptions of each new show, including your first looks at the cast. The biggest TV news week of the year rolls on!
