The ABC prime time schedule is mighty impressive.  Perhaps not in the sense of quality (depends on your tastes) but in terms of consistency.  ABC has a whole host of holdovers from last season.  So many, in fact, that they are only premiering a few brand new series this Fall.  Remember the days when ABC was the laughing stock of network television?  That was only five or so years ago.  Then came Lost, Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives (among others) and ABC is now a network juggernaut.  Below you will find the premiere dates and times of every ABC Fall show. 

The new series that will almost certainly receive the most buzz for ABC is Life on Mars, about a modern day detective who gets into a car accident and wakes up in the seventies working the very same job.  There are reports of on-set troubles, but hopefully they’ve worked out the kinks.
