ABC Announces Fall Premiere Dates For 'Modern Family,' 'Grey's' and More

Jun 27, 2011 | 9:16am EDT

modern familyIn my book (self published, out next year) ABC’s fall line up is not looking too good. Sure, the network brought back what it needed to bring back (the terribly underrated and under-watched sitcom, Happy Endings) and what it would’ve been stupid to cancel (oh hai, Modern Family), but its new offerings aren't as promising. The only thing that's really intriguing  is Pan Am. Meanwhile, we're also getting a Charlies Angels reboot. Well, it worked for Hawaii Five-0. So why not?

The Middle and Modern Family each get one hour premiers while Grey’s Anatomy gets a two-hour season opener. I guess ABC realized they should give the people what they want, and give them a lot of it.
