ABC Fall Schedule: ‘Notorious’ Swoops Into ‘Scandal’ Fall Slot

Hayley Atwell’s new legal drama scores plum post-“Dancing With the Stars” timeslot

ABC became the third network to announce its fall primetime schedule on Tuesday, revealing which shows will air on what nights when the new TV season begins.

Most notably, the network announced that the Piper Perabo-led drama “Notorious” will air Thursdays at 9, taking the place of Shonda Rhimes‘ “Scandal,” presumably due to star Kerry Washington‘s pregnancy. The move breaks up this season’s highly successful all-Shondaland Thursday programming block.

“Conviction,” Hayley Atwell‘s follow-up to the recently canceled “Agent Carter,” will air Monday nights in the plum timeslot immediately following “Dancing With the Stars.”

The other new shows debuting on the fall schedule are “Speechless,” “Designated Survivor” and “American Housewife,” previously titled “The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport.” The other shows ABC picked up to series will premiere later in the season.

“Our new shows reflect the inclusive and empowering storytelling that defines the ABC brand. We will continue to raise the bar for our audience, investing in great storytellers and reflecting the authentic faces and voices of the world around us,” said network chief Channing Dungey in a statement.
