ABC introduces new series to its Fall 2006-07 schedule

MUMBAI: ABC has announced a host of new series to be included in its Fall TV schedule. Said ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson. "We want viewers making appointments with ABC Television every night of the week."

Mondays nights kicked off with new editions of Wife Swap at 8 pm, followed by The Bachelor and What About Brian. However, The Bachelor will be replaced by a new edition of Supernanny in the 9 pm slot, later in the season.

"We set out to develop a diverse group of shows that will continue in that vein and also to grow our audience. Our success has been driven by great storytelling and memorable characters that audiences have fallen in love with,"said McPherson.

Dancing With the Stars is aired on Tuesdays at 8 pm, leading into two new comedy shows Let's Rob Mick Jagger and Help Me Help You. Boston Legal returns to the 10 pm slot, and after Dancing With the Stars goes off, it will be replaced by a new game show Set For the Rest of Your Life.

On Wednesdays the results of Dancing With the Stars are announced at 8, but will be replaced by George Lopez and According To Jim, at the end of its season. A Warner Brothers Television drama series The Nine, with Tim Daly and John Billingsley, will follow at 10 pm.

ABC plans to air consecutive episodes of Lost scheduled for the 9 pm slot, followed by the new thriller Daybreak, starring Taye Diggs, with Lost reappearing in the new year for another uninterrupted run.

Following Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, are two new comedies starting at 8 pm. Big Day, which takes a look at a couple's wedding day from the view point of those involved, and Notes From The Underbelly, about a couple expecting their first baby. At 10 pm J.J.Abrams drama, Six Degrees will be telecast, which focuses on six different New Yorkers whose lives are somehow interconnected.

On Fridays, Betty The Ugly, set at a fashion magazine, is an adaptation of a telenovela starring America Ferrera and Eric Mabius, with executive producer Salma Hayek. While, Alaska-set comedy Men In Trees follows at 9 and the newsmagazine 20/20 will air at 10 pm.

Saturday nights will broadcast the national security thriller Traveler, followed by Greg Behrendt's Wake-Up Call, an unscripted series that offers relationship advice and the hidden-camera half- hour series Just For Laughs.

Finally on Sunday nights, America's Funniest Home Videos, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Desperate Housewives are joined by a new drama, Brothers And Sisters, a family soap, starring Calista Flockhart and Ron Rifkin.

Other midseason replacements include, American Inventor and the Jon Favreau-directed comedy In Case of Emergency, as part of the fall 2006-2007 schedule.
