New ABC Schedule Moves ‘Cougar Town’ To Midseason

Cougar TownWell, Cougar Town fans, it looks like you’d better get used to waiting. Once again, ABC is pushing the show back to midseason, this time to make room for Happy Endings which is comfortably settled in Modern Family’s time-slot (likely as a way to boost the so-so ratings). The network is also shelving The Bachelor until midseason, but we’re used to that at this point.

The placements of Charlie’s Angels alongside Grey’s Anatomy and Revenge alongside Happy Endings and Modern Family are odd but not that bothersome, but the new Tuesday comedy block that pairs two shows that are far too similar for comfort is just ridiculous. Tuesday nights we find Last Man Standing and Man Up one after the other, but really they just look like singlecamera and multicamera versions of the same exact show. Oh, but one has Tim Allen. Whoopdie-freaking-do.

Here are all the changes you can expect this Fall on ABC, and if you want a look at some of the new shows, we’ve done a thorough run-down of the clips and previews.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
