ABC Announces Fall 2012 Premiere Dates

     July 26, 2012


ABC has finally put the finishing touches on their Fall 2012 lineup and announced premiere dates for new and returning series.  It seems like just yesterday we were saying our goodbyes to the network shows for the summer, with the intensity of Breaking Bad and the silliness of True Blood keeping us company until the fall season, but it’s about time to start looking to the Fall 2012 TV lineup.

Fan favorites like Modern Family, Revenge, and Once Upon a Time will premiere in the normal late-September slot, but we’ll have to wait until October for the return of Happy Endings and Suburgatory.  For my money, the most promising new show on ABC’s schedule is the Connie Britton-fronted drama Nashville, which premieres on October 10th.  Body of Proof, Wife Swap, and new shows Red Widow and Zero Hour are being held until midseason. Hit the jump to take a look at the full list of premiere dates.
