ABC has revealed its schedule of midseason premiere dates for new dramas “The Fix,” “Whiskey Cavalier” and “Grand Hotel” and returning shows like “For the People” and “American Idol.” Notice we didn’t mention “Dancing With the Stars”? It appears the declining dance competition is taking the spring off for the first time since 2007.

“Whiskey Cavalier” will be the first of the three new series to debut, premiering on Wednesday, Feb. 27 in the 10 p.m. timeslot occupied previously by “A Million Little Things” in the fall. “The Fix” will premiere on Monday, March 18 at 10 p.m. “Grand Hotel,” from executive producer Eva Longoria, will be held back until summer with a Monday, June 17 premiere at 10 p.m.

When it returns for midseason, freshman drama “A Million Little Things” will move to Thursday nights to follow “Grey’s Anatomy,” beginning Jan. 17.

As previously announced, the network’s ’90s-set “Goldbergs” spinoff “Schooled” will premiere Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 8:30, with “American Housewife” to move to Wednesdays starting Feb. 5.

Elsewhere on the schedule, ABC has also set a Sunday, March 3 premiere for the second season of “American Idol” and slated the new season of the Shondaland legal drama “For the People” for Thursday, March 7 at 10 p.m., after “How to Get Away With Murder” completes its run.
