ABC might as well just give up on this show. It seems pretty obvious they don't want to air it. It's going to premiere, air for 3 weeks, then go on a 3 week hiatus before airing a final episode. On top of that, 2 episodes as of now will be left without a home. And there's only 6 episodes ordered. It's insane.

yeah that doesn't bode well for the show at all.

That being said, I don't think the promos look good at all. I'll still give it a chance but it looks pretty formulaic to me. I'm not as excited as I once was

The postponement by a week could work in shows favor.
But the fact that the show is set to premiere 2 weeks from tonight, and theres not one promo tonight, yet HT which is over 3 weeks away has promos, tells me ABC is having second thoughts.

ABC orders game show set on skyscraper
THR EXCLUSIVE

By James Hibberd

April 5, 2010, 11:00 PM ET
ABC is taking the network game show to new heights with a series from Fremantle Media North America.

In "Downfall," players answer trivia questions on top of a skyscraper in a major metropolitan city for $1 million in cash and prizes.

If they lose, the contestants risk seeing their winnings go off the side of the building. The players might also take a controlled plunge, though that part is still being worked out.

"'Downfall' is a new, hybrid, high-stakes field game show where fearless contestants have to fight and focus hard to keep their winnings from falling off the side of a building," executive producer Scott St. John said.

ABC has ordered an unspecified number of episodes for a summer bow from veteran game show producers Fremantle. Chris Ahern and Graham Shaw are supervising producers.

"Downfall" joins several projects that ABC has in the works for summer and beyond, including an ice dancing series from BBC Worldwide, an extreme weight-loss reality show from J.D. Roth and a deceptive game show from producer Mark Burnett.

It is a good move because The Big Bang Theory is in repeats on April 19 and 26 (more promo time now and Superbowl can watch now ). I've watched the premiere episode, it is good and has tons of potential. Our review will go up next Friday now as a result of the new premiere date. Reason for the delayed date was to give it a better chance of succeeding than to air against an all-new Big Bang. Make sense.

As for tonight's promos, there were 4 scheduled during DWTS and one during Castle. They were pulled 15 min before the start of DWTS tonight. That is why they didn't air, because of the new premiere date. You'll see the new promos tomorrow.

Julie: I don't understand what you're saying at all. There is no 3 week hiatus. And give up on the show when they're trying to get the best premiere possible? They have went through so much to get this show on the air and creatively it is good they feel or they would have never picked-up the option back in August. You're making no sense at all.

benjamoon: It is a good premiere and will get only better. Very funny by the middle to the end of the premiere. Josh Lawson steals the show.

Schedule updates:

Friday, April 9, 2010
8:00pm Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (R, 4/2)
[Wife Swap is not scheduled to air on this date.]

Monday, April 19, 2010
9:32pm Romantically Challenged (new premiere date)
[Scheduled for April 19, 26, May 3, and May 17]

"We've got more than 210 hours of original programming this summer, including the return of our hits 'Wipeout' and 'The Bachelorette.' ABC will be a summer destination for viewers."

Additional series and specials will be announced at a later date.



Following is a list of upcoming programming in chronological order (all times ET):

THE BACHELORETTE – PREMIERES MONDAY, MAY 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m.), AND MOVES TO ITS REGULAR TIMESLOT (8:00-10:00 p.m.) ON MONDAY, MAY 31 – Ali Fedotowsky has finally decided to risk it all for love. The energetic and charismatic career-oriented woman from San Francisco has re-prioritized her life – and now love comes out on top. She will have her own opportunity to find her soul mate when she stars in the sixth edition of “The Bachelorette.”

Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo with her sexy raspy voice and a peacock feather to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of “The Bachelor.” She became the front-runner for Jake’s heart, but instead they found themselves in a heartbreaking situation when she made a gut-wrenching decision to choose a job she loved over the man she loved. Ali made the surprising safe choice to go back to work, but regretted it immediately. By the time she sorted out her work affairs, Jake had already moved on with his search for love with the three fabulous women who stayed with him, and he did not allow Ali to return. But it’s not too late for Ali now. Admitting that she made one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she has let go of everything this time – her apartment, her job, her stability – to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelorette” is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.



TRUE BEAUTY – PREMIERES MONDAY, MAY 31 (10:00-11:00 p.m.) – Executive producers Tyra Banks (“The Tyra Banks Show,” “America’s Next Top Model”) and Ashton Kutcher (executive producer of “Punk’d” and “Beauty and the Geek”) team up again to put their spin on beauty in Sin City. Five gorgeous females and five hot men will live together at Planet Hollywood Hotel and think they’re competing to become the “Face of Vegas.” Unbeknownst to them they will be challenged and be put in moral situations to see which contestant really is kind, generous, compassionate and has what it takes to be truly beautiful inside and out.

At the end of eight episodes one winner will be declared after successfully demonstrating that their inner beauty matches their outer beauty. The winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and a feature article in People magazine.

Vanessa Minnillo (“former host of ET”) returns as a host and judge but will only reveal herself to the contestants once they’re eliminated. Carson Kressley (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”) will host as well as judge and put his spin on things in a way only he can. Beth Ostrosky Stern, the wife of the self-described “King of All Media” Howard Stern, will be making her broadcast television debut and share her opinion on beauty being a former model herself.

Executive producers of “True Beauty” are Denise Cramsey (ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), Tyra Banks and Laura Armstrong for Bankable Productions, and Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, Karey Burke and Rod Aissa for Katalyst Productions. The series is a production of Warner Horizon Television.



WIPEOUT – SPECIAL TWO-HOUR SNEAK PEEK BLIND DATE THEMED EPISODE TUESDAY, JUNE 1 (8:00-10:00 p.m.), BEFORE THE SERIES PREMIERE TUESDAY, JUNE 22 (8:00-10:00 p.m.) - ABC’s hit summer series “Wipeout,” returns for season three. In a special sneak peek “Wipeout Blind Date” themed episode, love is in the air as we’ve paired up 12 single guys with 12 single girls to take on the “Wipeout” course as their first date and a chance to win a grand prize of $100,000. New stunts to be featured this season are the overdrive, bruise ball and spin cycle.

Contestants will compete in the world’s largest extreme obstacle course, providing the biggest spills and spectacular wipeouts ever seen on television. “Wipeout” was recently nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award and was named Entertainment Weekly’s best Guilty Pleasure Reality TV show of all time.

The third season of “Wipeout” will feature brand new, bigger, better and wilder obstacles in addition to specially themed episodes including “Ladies Night,” and “Family Edition.” Each week, 24 energetic new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes go head to head through four rounds of demanding but hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of “Wipeout Champion” and the $50,000 grand prize. In the end, only one contestant will be victorious, while everyone else will Wipeout!

The series is hosted by John Anderson (ESPN’s “SportsCenter,”), John Henson (“Talk Soup”) and co-hosted by Jill Wagner. “Wipeout” executive producers are Matt Kunitz (“Fear Factor”) and Scott Larsen. Shye Sutherland, Kevin Wehrenberg, Trice Barto and J. Rupert Thompson are co-executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA. David Goldberg is the chairman of Endemol North America



THE GATES – PREMIERES SUNDAY, JUNE 20 (9:00-10:00 p.m.) – Nestled inside a private mountain community are The Gates. The image of perpetual suburban bliss, each street is lined with perfectly manicured homes protected by the massive iron gates, but a dark and delicious secret is buried just beneath the surface of this picturesque neighborhood.

Like most families that settle inside The Gates, the Monahans are unmoored from a complicated life they abandoned in Chicago. Named the new police chief of The Gates, Nick Monahan is expecting a change of pace in this quiet suburb. Nick's wife Sarah and their children Charlie and Dana are embarking on new adventures as well. Their house is to die for, but amidst the excitement, Sarah is still burdened with the revelation that her husband may not be the man she thought he was. Their children Charlie and Dana will also face some challenges of their own. Along with navigating the trials and tribulations of adolescence, they will also face the daunting task of fitting into their new upscale school where their new friends run in tight knit packs.

There's something very different about this place almost...haunting. Unions will be complicated by friends with an unnatural influence. Insatiable housewives will struggle with ravenous cravings, and teenagers will be cursed with keeping their beastly instincts in check. The Monahans are facing an uncertain fate. Nick is about to be tangled up in a mystery where he will begin to piece together the dark truth about their new home, and the supernatural elements that lurk behind the shadows of The Gates.

From their very first day on the job, these rookies are plunged into the world of big city policing: a world where even the smallest mistake can have life-or-death consequences and serious emotional fall-out. The soul of this close-knit group is 26-year-old perfectionist, Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym). Honest to a fault, all Andy has ever wanted to be is “good police.” Her father was cop, and while he wasn’t the best cop -- or the best father – Andy knows she’ll never find this sense of family, loyalty and excitement in any other job. The series explores the trials, triumphs, competition and camaraderie of Andy and her rookie family: boyfriends, best friends, mentors and competitors, who are about to learn that no amount of training can prepare them for life.

In this original eight hour series, the unforgettable stories of doctors, nurses and patients are adeptly woven to give each hour the pace and intensity of a drama. Whether it is the young resident in crisis doubting that she is good enough to become a Harvard-trained doctor, or the deployed soldier's pregnant wife praying for a miracle surgery to save her baby, “Boston Med” is sure to touch your heart. Filmed over four months at Massachusetts General, Brigham and Womens, and Children's Hospital Boston, this powerfully real series breaks new ground in the documentary landscape. Meet the charismatic Hollywood producer before either he or the film-makers realize that through a twist of fate, his face will be transplanted onto a Vietnam veteran badly scarred in an accident. The second face transplant performed in this country and the first anywhere to be so extensively filmed, this operation involved two dozen surgeons and up to a hundred additional doctors and nurses. It is a stunning example of both the high caliber medicine and the unprecedented and unique access captured by the film-makers in “Boston Med.”

Played atop a tall building amidst a metropolitan landscape, contestants have to quickly answer a series of trivia questions against the clock. If they play the perfect game, they could leave with a million dollars in cash and prizes. But if not, they could just as easily see their hopes and dreams slip through their fingers and off the side building, literally.

BACHELOR PAD – PREMIERES MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m.) – Twenty of the most unforgettable contestants/suitors from the hit franchise “The Bachelor” will reunite – all under one roof – for the all-new series “Bachelor Pad.” The series, the first “all-star” reunion from previous seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” will feature the participants living together in a house in a competitive reality show. The show will also offer the 20 now-single contestants a “second chance” at finding love, something that didn’t quite work out during their first stint on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette.”

Each week, the reunited contestants will compete in challenges, some of which are inspired by incidents from prior seasons. Each two-hour episode will conclude with evictions from the residence. At the end of the six-episode run, one contestant will emerge victorious and will take home a cash prize - and who knows, maybe even find “the one” for them. Participants and further details about the prize will be announced at a later date.

“The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison will host “Bachelor Pad.” Executive producers of “Bachelor Pad” are Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Jay Bienstock. The series is from Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.



DATING IN THE DARK – PREMIERES MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m.) – Back for it's second season, “Dating In The Dark” is the unique reality series that asks the age-old question, “Is Love Blind?” Each week, three single men and three single women, all looking for love, will move into a house together, but be totally sequestered from the opposite sex. While they will have no chance of seeing each other in the light, they will have the opportunity to date in a completely dark room. Looks will be taken out of the equation as the men and women get to know each other and form bonds in total darkness. After several days of dating in the darkroom, the participants will select the one member of the opposite sex that they want to see revealed in the light. For the first time, the participants will see who they have been dating, wooing, kissing and forming bonds with. And after they see each other in the light for the first time, they have to make the difficult decision...do they stay with the person they fell for in the dark, or leave them behind. Hosted by Rossi Moreale.

“Dating in the Dark” is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol holding, along with Talpa Content, the format department of Dutch media entrepreneur John’s de Mol’s company. David Goldberg is the North America Chairman of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Tom Shelly.

Is it possible to detect a murderous mindset before a child reaches his 7th birthday? Can a permanent electrical pulse, fitted to the brain like a pace-maker, stop people from eating and reduce the obesity epidemic? And is it now possible to reverse the effects of a stroke, so that an individual’s four limbs are almost raised from the dead? Martin Bashir follows Neuro-surgeon Dr Julian Bailes as he pushes the brain to its limits.
