Cougar Town was also held until February, had pretty much zero promotion and was paired with a show it had absolutely nothing in common with. Let's not pretend the timeslot move was the only thing that caused Cougar Town to collapse. Apartment 23 has a much more compatible lead-in, hopefully will have more promotion and is returning right away in the fall.

Suburgatory's a great fit for the 9:30 slot. It's still a family comedy so it'll go well with Happy Endings but is a little edgier which works well with the later time. Plus The Neighbors is clearly going to be absolute crap so why waste the cushiest timeslot on the network for it?

Cougar Town also had to deal with a strong bias against the show due to it's title. Nobody wanted to watch a show called Cougar Town because of what they thought it would be about. Truthfully though it was and is a hilarious and well done series.


Apt. 23 has a similar issue with the B word in its title. But I think it will show some growth as it has a compatible lead-in.

Like most of the networks, what a terrible premiere date schedule.

Oct. 16 is a Presidential Debate, so that's why it is Oct. 23. Not sure what they are running Oct. 2 and 9 in the slot yet. The ABC dates are pretty smart....why? Check the blog tomorrow.

It'll be interesting to read as I thoroughly disagree.

I just don't get why networks can't premiere all of their shows around the same time. What's the need of premiering in 3 different months?

Is New Girl going to be on a baseball hiatus this year? If so, it looks like Happy Endings and Apartment 23 might be premiering on a New Girl-less week. As much as I hate FOX's stupid baseball breaks, this could mean good things for those shows.

After reading the blog it would be pointless to move Dancing with the Stars results to Wednesday on October 16/17. They could still air in their normal Tuesday slot since the debate doesn't start until 9:00. No need to have another recap bump it and preempt The Middle.

Well this year it is a little tough. You have four debates, the Election and Fox has the World Series. I hope this explains ABC a bit:

That is just speculation on my part, but I think they would do that since they are premiering The Middle with two episodes. And there is no CMA's on Wednesday this year, so they will have an extra episode in sweep, too. Or maybe not since DWTS Results will for sure have to air on Wed, Nov. 7 due to the Election on Nov. 6. So perhaps The Middle is going to air Oct. 17.
