ABC Reveals 2014 Midseason Premiere Dates, Moves 'Revenge' to New Slot
ABC has announced the fixed line-up of its 2014 midseason programmings, revealing the shuffle of one of its hit scripted series. "Revenge", which has occupied the Sunday, 9 P.M. slot since its second season, will move to 10 P.M. starting March 9.
Rookie drama "Resurrection", which was initially set to air at 10 P.M., is given the more friendly time slot, preceding the Emily VanCamp starrer at 9 P.M. Veteran drama "Once Upon a Time" will still air at 8 P.M. on the same night.
Among the highly-anticipated returns is "The Bachelor", which will kick off its 18th season on Monday, January 6 at 8 P.M. New drama "Killer Women" will fill the spot left by doomed freshman "Lucky 7" on Tuesdays at 10 P.M. starting January 7. "Mind Games" will later take over the slot on March 11 after "Killer Women" ends its eight-week run.
"Suburgatory" will return with its third season on its old slot, Wednesdays at 9:30 P.M., starting January 15. It replaces another canceled freshman "Back in the Game". New comedy "Mixology" from "The Hangover" writers takes over the Wednesday, 9:30 P.M. slot from "Super Fun Night", which will have ended its first season run, beginning February 26, enjoying a strong lead-in from "Modern Family".
Limited series "Betrayal" will be replaced by eight-part spy series "The Assets" on Thursdays at 10 P.M. starting January 2. At 8 P.M., unscripted series "The Taste" returns for its sophomore season as "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" goes on hiatus.
"Wonderland" is expected to return with new episodes sometime in spring. Meanwhile, "Nashville" will continue airing new episodes in January and February, a change from initial plan to split the show's second season.
