Not a lot is changing in ABC’s fall 2020 primetime schedule.

The network, which was No. 1 in entertainment among adults 18-49 for the first time in four years, has announced its plans for the 2020-2021 season. One new scripted show — the thriller Big Sky (from David E. Kelley) — and the Supermarket Sweep (with Leslie Jones) revival will join returning favorites this fall. Specific premiere dates and additional pickups will be announced at a later date.

New seasons of American Idol, The Bachelor, For Life, and mixed-ish will premiere later in the season, as will the new comedy Call Your Mother (starring Kyra Sedgwick).

For the most part, ABC’s schedule remains the same, with a couple notable day and time changes: The Conners (Tuesdays at 8/7c) moves to Wednesdays at 9/8c and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (Thursdays at 8/7c, originally Wednesdays at 10/9c) moves to Sundays at 9/8c. Meanwhile, black-ish moves from 9:30/8:30c to an hour earlier on Wednesdays, with American Housewife claiming its old time slot.

While black-ish was originally going to be held for later in the season, the network instead decided to swap out its new comedy. “black-ish has a long-standing history of shining a light on current events and honoring Black voices through the lens of the Johnson family,” Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, said. “After speaking with Kenya and our creative partners, we decided it was important to tell these meaningful stories during this moment in time, so we are adjusting our premiere schedule and are committed to doing whatever it takes to bring this series back as soon as we possibly can. Following recent monumental events, it’s imperative that the dialogue continues and empowers viewers to raise their voices, and there is no other show that does that like black-ish.”
