In 2020, ABC’s summer game The Bachelorette inevitably postponed to fall as its production was delayed by the pandemic. The stunt worked so well in the ratings that the network repeated it last fall. Next fall, ABC is doing it with another one bachelorr series that airs in the summer Bachelor in Paradise. ABC has aired for the last two years Dancing with the stars on Monday and The Bachelorette on Tuesday. Bachelor in Paradise will maintain its Monday-Tuesday air pattern, which has been very handy ever since Dance moves to Disney+.
“Slits Bachelors in paradise to take over for Dancing with the stars is an opportunity for us to become even better; the Live+Same Day numbers from Bachelor in Paradise match or exceed Dancing with the stars‘” Erwich said.

Why ABC chose not to bring The Bachelorette Back to the fall, Erwich noted, “It was in the cycle for bachelor in paradise, it’s the perfect show to kick off the fall season.”
He pointed Bachelors in paradiseThe final season of has risen in ratings and is “probably one of the most talked about episodes of the reality show we’ve had in a long time.” “Because there are so many characters and storylines, it’s the perfect show to expand the course over two nights,” Erwich said.
During train station 19 and Grey’s anatomy worked well together as a programming block and allowed for frequent crossovers, ABC chose to keep them The beginner in its current slot on Sunday at 10:00 p.m. and not pair with spinoff The Beginner: Federal Agencieswhich is planned behind Bachelor in Paradise in ABC’s long-standing challenging period at 10 p.m. Tuesday, which was last seen in short-lived drama Queens last fall.

“One of our strategies and themes for the fall was stability, which allows us to stay focused on a few key priorities The beginner in its Sunday time slot where it did extremely well, especially when it came out Idol, We think the show will continue to grow in numbers, it felt like the right thing, and because it’s Sunday night we were able to send a message and go and still do incredible crossovers on Tuesday,” Erwich said. “And then we’ll see each other bachelor in paradise, I think this will be one of the best opportunities to get started on a new show. The Beginner: Federal Agencies is a big priority for us, so we felt like we wanted to give the show that opportunity.”
Abbott Elementary SchoolTuesday’s move to ABC’s signature Wednesday comedy block was expected. The question was which of this season’s ABC Wednesday comedies to make room for Abbott Elementary School since all four were renewed for the next season. It was the wonderful years who has just parted ways with EP Fred Savage following a misconduct investigation.
Erwich said the controversy played no part in the decision to hold the comedy on hold for the midseason.

“The wonderful years is a show of which we are immensely proud, the response from fans and critics has been overwhelming. The show premiered extremely strong, it’s one of the highest-rated premieres we’ve had in years,” he said. “The mid-season order will allow us to develop a plan to restart it with a lot of care and attention.”
When Abbott Elementary School takes over the Wednesday 9 p.m. slot, the conners, what was successful modern family there, glides to 8 p.m., displacing the long-time anchor the goldbergs, which is shifted to 8:30 a.m.
“We begin the night with our greatest and most complete comedy, The Connersespecially coming from our incredibly strong stations, I think it’s a great start,” said Erwich.

The Wonderful Years The restart was benched along with until midseason A million little things which, for the first time in its run, is not on the fall schedule with what is expected to be its fifth and final season. When AMLT shifts to mid-season, his slot for Wednesday 10 p.m. is assigned big skywhich will move from Thursday 10 p.m. to make room for new arrivals Alaska, the prime real estate gets behind the highly rated ones train station 19 and Grey’s anatomy two hour block.
Erwich thinks so big sky Fans will follow the show through its third slot in as many seasons, noting new cast Reba McEntire. “We think this is a great way to start conversations and get exposure for this show,” he said.
