ABC fall premiere dates: ‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 and more

Do you want to know when some of your favorite shows are coming back on TV? Luckily, ABC made the announcement as a part of their Television Critics Association summer panel on Thursday. There’s nothing here that is entirely a surprise, though it is nice to see “Once Upon a Time” and “Revenge” both launch in September this year as a part of the new Sunday lineup.

Check out the full schedule below, and take note that all times are EST and subject to change based on your time zone:

Friday, September 14

8:00 – “Shark Tank”

9:00 – “Primetime: What Would You Do?”

10:00 – “20/20”

Monday, September 24

8:00 – “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars”

10:00 – “Castle”

Tuesday, September 25

While some of this schedule makes a good deal of sense, we’re still clueless about other parts. What’s going on with Wednesdays? It seems far more complicated than it needs to be, and launching “Nashville” without a 9:30 lead-in for its first week is almost ridiculous unless they are planning an hour-long “Modern Family” event first.
