ABC unveiled its full fall schedule on Tuesday, with new nights for the Katy Mixon-led comedy “American Housewife” and the cop dramedy “The Rookie,” as well as a trio of new shows.

The network’s lineup remains largely consistent with last season, with the Monday duo of “Dancing With the Stars” and “The Good Doctor” to remain in place, as will the Thursday night trio of dramas, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “A Million Little Things” and “How to Get Away With Murder.”

Tuesdays will once again be anchored by the Roseanne Barr-less “The Conners” at 8 p.m., with the sophomore comedy “Bless This Mess” to follow at 8:30. The “Black-ish” prequel series “Mixed-ish” will launch in the fall in the 9 p.m. slot, followed by its flagship series. The genre thriller “Emergence” will cap off the night at 10 p.m.

ABC’s Wednesday comedy block will also remain largely in place, with “The Goldbergs” at 8 p.m., followed by “Schooled” at 8:30, the final season of “Modern Family” at 9 and “Single Parents” at 9:30. In place of the bygone “Whiskey Cavalier,” the Cobie Smulders-led private-investigator drama “Stumptown” will air Wednesdays at 10 p.m.

“American Housewife” has been moved to Friday nights, where it will lead into “Fresh Off the Boat” and two hours of “20/20.” The Nathan Fillion-led “The Rookie,” will also move, from Tuesday to Sunday nights, where it will follow the network’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things” revival, hosted by Tiffany Haddish.

The network’s three other previously announced new shows, the dramas “The Baker and the Beauty,” “For Life” and the comedy “United We Fall,” will be held until midseason.

“Since the beginning of the year, ABC has been the No. 1 network with a schedule that is working, and we are going to nurture it,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said. “Going into next season, our priorities are stability and launching shows in a way our audience will know we are committed to them. Add to that some of the most buzzed-about titles and top talent of the recent pilot season, and we have an enviable combination that sets the stage for us to win with women and grow our overall reach.”
