ABC sets fall premiere dates

“The Neighbors” (Karen Neal - ABC)
ABC has opted to unveil the bulk of its fall series during Premiere Week, which starts on Monday, Sept. 24.

Notice the network has decided its new gated community for aliens — the outer space kind — comedy “The Neighbors” is better served in the post-“The Middle” timeslot on Wednesday, which means returning “Suburgatory” wins the lottery and gets the post-“Modern Family” timeslot that night.

Here’s ABC’s plan:


Friday, September 14

8:00-9:00 p.m.“Shark Tank”

9:00-10:00 p.m.“What Would You Do?”
