Following the earlier leads of NBC and FOX, ABC has announced its TV broadcast schedule for the fall of 2012. Much of the schedule does look familiar -- only 5 new series will debut in the fall -- but there are some big changes to watch for. Get the ABC fall 2012 schedule scoop here!


The ABC Fall 2012 Highlights

Much of ABC's fall 2012 schedule will look familiar to fans of the network. With only a few new shows on the roster, most of the changes are actually in the rescheduling of older shows.

Notable changes include:

  • Dancing with the Stars: The Results Show moves one hour earlier to 8pm on Tuesdays.
  • Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23 follow DWTS: The Results Show Tuesdays at 9 and 9:30pm.
  • Last Man Standing moves to Fridays at 8pm.
  • Revenge moves to Sundays at 9pm.

A Dancing with the Stars All-Star Season

As has been speculated for weeks now (ever since Mario Lopez spilled the beans), the upcoming Dancing with the Stars season 15 will be an all-star edition. The show will feature a collection of celebrities from the past 14 seasons of the show, all competing for a second chance at that Mirror Ball trophy.

There is no word yet as to which stars might be slated to return, so let your speculation run wild!
