ABC Fall 2019 Schedule: The Rookie, American Housewife and More on the Move!

at . Comments

ABC is switching things up during the 2019-20 TV season. 

The network unveiled its fall line-up this morning, and the biggest move concerns Nathan Fillion-led The Rookie. 

It struggled to garner much traction in the Tuesdays at 10/9c slot this season, so the show is moving to Sundays.

It will lead out of Shark Tank. Scripted broadcast dramas have not been resonating on the night for several years now, so time will tell if The Rookie can move the ratings needle in the right direction. 

With Speechless canceled, Fresh Off the Boat will be joined on Fridays by American Housewife. 

A Million Little Things, which benefited from moving to Thursdays out of Grey's Anatomy earlier this year, will remain there in the fall.

This move means that Station 19 has been bumped to midseason.

In an unsurprising move, mixed-ish, the prequel spinoff of black-ish will join the parent series on Tuesdays. 

New drama, Emergence, will take over for The Rookie. 

The only change on Wednesdays is new drama, Stumptown, moving into the 10/9c slot.
