ABC Fall Lineup: ‘Dancing’ Condensed to One Night; ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Gets Tuesday Slot


ABC is condensing “Dancing With the Stars” to one night, Monday, and giving the plum spot after “Modern Family” to the new Conan O’Brien-produced comedy “Super Fun Night.” It is airing the highly anticipated “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” at the top of a new Tuesday night lineup that will include dramas and comedies.

Landing the timeslot after “Modern Family,” ABC’s biggest hit, is a huge reversal of fortune for “Super Fun Night,” which stars Rebel Wilson (pictured). Last season, CBS passed the show over for the 2012-13 season. Now it will debut with a huge lead-in.

ABC also announced it is airing the new spinoff “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” on Thursdays, and is moving “The Neighbors” to Fridays. And it has ordered the new Pixar special “Toy Story of Terror,” starring the original voice cast from the hit “Toy Story” films.
