ABC Fall Premiere Dates: ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Agents of SHIELD’ coming in September

It could happen -

ABC has finally lifted the veil on many of their fall premiere dates, and we have a feeling that there are not many in here that are going to surprise you. Like Fox in particular, this is a network that has a pattern that clearly works for them, so there is not really any reason to change it.

As per usual, “Dancing with the Stars” is leading the way on the schedule, and it will be beginning a little bit earlier than any other show. All times listed are Eastern, so adjust accordingly depending on your time zone.

For those of you who didn’t hear, “Scandal” is not a part of the fall schedule due to star Kerry Washington’s pregnancy delaying the start of filming for season 6. You can anticipate it returning to TV for the new year. For the most part, this is a consistent schedule, but the big issue for ABC is that we don’t really see any major new hit in the mix … though “Conviction” may at least be a solid performer for them.
