Suburgatory And The Neighbors Switch Time Slots On ABC's Wednesday Nights
ABC's doing a bit of shuffling with their Fall 2012 Wednesday night line-up. Back in May when they first released their Fall 2012 schedule, the network had new half-hour comedy series The Neighbors set up on Wednesday night sandwiched between Modern Family and their new music-focused drama series Nashville. But it looks like it'll be Suburgatory getting that choice post-Modern Family spot.
The Neighbors is a comedy, which stars Lenny Venito and Jami Gertz as a married couple who move their family into a gated community where, as it turns out, all of the residents are actually aliens in disguise. Shenanigans ensue. The 30-minute comedy was set to air after ABC's strongly rated Modern Family, however, according to Deadline ABC has made the choice to switch The Neighbors and returning comedy Suburgatory.
This fall, The Neighbors will air at 8:30 p.m. ET after The Middle and before Modern Family. And Suburgatory will air at 9:30 p.m., closing out the two-hour comedy block and taking over the spot vacated by Happy Endings, which has moved to Tuesday nights along Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, which also inhabited the Wednesday/9:30 time slot for a time last season.
As Deadline notes, The Neighbors comes from Dan Fogelman, who has a writing background in Disney animated features. So perhaps the slightly more family-friendly hour will be a better fit for his new series. More information and the trailer for The Neighbors can be found here.
