ABC has released their plans for fall 2020, with their schedule relying more on unscripted content than usual.
Sundays sees the premiere of the network’s Supermarket Sweep revival hosted by Leslie Jones airing at 8:00, thereby replacing the cancelled Kids Say the Darndest Things. Who Wants to be a Millionaire gets a fall slot after doing solid business midseason; this time, it’s tasked with leading into the third season of Nathan Fillion cop drama The Rookie.
Tuesdays are a complete tear down, as the network has done away with the four-comedy lineup in favor of a season of The Bachelorette, which wasn’t able to film in time to air this summer. Leading out of The Bachelorette is the network’s lone new drama for the fall Big Sky, a thriller following the abduction of two sisters. The series stars Kylie Bunbury (Twisted), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), and Ryan Phillippe (Shooter), among others.
Wednesdays finds American Housewife returning to the post-Goldbergs 8:30 slot, with The Conners moving to 9:00 and leading into Kyra Sedgwick-starring multi-cam Call Your Mother. Cobie Smulders PI drama Stumptown retains its 10:00 slot.
There are no changes from the Monday lineup last fall or the midseason Thursday and Friday lineups.
Set to return ABC midseason 2021 are Black-ish and spinoff Mixed-ish; legal drama For Life; The Bachelor; Bachelor in Paradise; The Great Christmas Light Fight; and American Idol.
