ABC is shaking things up come January, with plenty of shifting and new additions in the new year!

Kicking things off in the 2019 midseason schedule is news magazine series 20/20‘s expansion from one hours to two (starting at 9/8c) on Friday, January 4. The same goes for fan favorites America’s Funniest Home Videos and Shark Tank, both of which will air a new hour-long episode along with a previously aired installment.

Noticeably absent from the Monday lineup is long-running dance competition series Dancing with the Stars which will take a break for the spring cycle, opting to return in the fall. Meanwhile, the network is taking one of its newer successes, A Million Little Things, and moving it to the coveted Thursday night slot following mega-hit Grey’s Anatomy at 9/8c. The switch will happen on Thursday, January 17, when the show returns from break.

As for A Million Little Things‘ empty spot Wednesdays at 10/9c, beginning January 9, Match Game will return with new episodes until newbie Whiskey Cavalier starring Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan debuts February 27. Joining the Wednesday comedy block on January 9 is Goldbergs spinoff Schooled which will air at 8:30/7:30c, directly after The Goldbergs.

Meanwhile, former Wednesday series American Housewife will return on its new night beginning Tuesday, February 5. The show will take over the empty slot left behind after The Conners wraps its first season run.

On Sunday, March 3, American Idol is back with two-hour episodes airing at 8/7c. For The People will return for its second season on Thursday, March 7 along with new episodes of Station 19.

Other new shows slated to premiere are The Fix on Monday, March 18 at 10/9c, which takes over for The Good Doctor, and Grand Hotel on Monday, June 17 at 10/9c.
