I like your schedule a lot, Pavan, probably the best you've predicted so far. Everything sounds good to me. Brothers & Sisters will definitely move to Mondays. Why not try a new show out of Desperate Housewives while there's still time? Ugly Betty on Fridays sounds great. Without competition, it could definitely rebuild there. A Wednesday 2-hour comedy block is a given, whereas a Tuesday hour comedy block is also a great idea. Maybe in late October/early November, though, they could cut DWTS down to 90 minutes, and stick a show like Samantha Who? back on Mondays. A show like Surviving Suburbia could always replace it on Wednesdays.

I don't think Surviving Suburbia is in the cards anymore at ABC. Maybe as a summer player, but that's all.

At first glance I hated that schedule, but I'm warming up to it now. The basic ideas are definitely good. B&S definitely needs to move somewhere else(either Monday or Tuesday) so DH can launch a new hit, Castle definitely needs to come back(though I would prefer it stay on Monday with B&S on Tuesday), Wednesday definitely needs to be comedy night, and Betty needs to go to either Tuesday or Friday(I would prefer Tuesday but Friday could work too). Not sure about Atlas on Friday though. Thursday and Sunday look great though. As long as Jim and Scrubs don't come back I can deal with it.

I won't miss Surviving Suburbia. It sucked.

Fridays is certainly a wild card for ABC. They will go with scripted. But going by these comedies, none are Friday themed. Family dramas are the way to go and I think Atlas will get a surprise pick-up. Yes, the pilot was costly, but this is their second time developing this pilot and I think it went cheaper than the first. If they do The Unknown, what can they pair it with? Nothing really.

No Canned or Let It Go I have a good feeling that neither of these will be on ABC's real schedule either.

They both didn't test well, so likely they won't be picked-up.

Did they actually redevelop ATLAS. It seems like they just removed Janelle Maloney from the cast credits and I didn't hear any cast additions like you did with the David Hemingson project. I wonder if they are keeping their options open and if they pick it up they will add to the exisiting footage etc.

I think there are only three stars now on Atlas, and one of them was recast, if I'm not mistaken.

Pavan, what do you have against Surviving Suburbia? It got good ratings, why would ABC all of a sudden get rid of it? I personally think it's the best sitcom to come along in a long while. Please explain why you don't think it'll be on the schedule because its ratings are competitive

I don't have anything against it. In fact, I've seen every episode so far and enjoy it. It's ratings are not good. If it were good, it would have aired this week. It is losing a lot of its audience from Dancing with the Stars and Samantha Who? did much better. It's not a good sign when you go from 20 million to 9 million in 2 minutes.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is not an option for fall.
