Da redação TV em Análise
As diatribes de Emily Clarke agora passam para o domingo
Terceira rede americana a anunciar sua grade para a temporada 2012-2013, a ABC decidiu na manhã desta terça-feira (15) colocar Revenge no lugar de Desperate Housewives, que encerrou sua trajetória no domingo (13) com uma audiência histórica de 11 milhões de telespectadores. Com isso, a trama deixa a faixa das 22h de quarta-feira livre para ser ocupada pelo drama de música country Nashville, protagonizado por Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights e American Horror Story) e Hayden Panettiere (Heroes).
Já a faixa das 22h do domingo, problemática para a emissora desde o cancelamento de Brothers & Sisters, passa a abrigar outra produção novata, 666 Park Avenue drama sobrenatural que passa a abrigar Vanessa Williams, recém-saída de Desperate, além de Terry O’Quinn (ex-Lost). A já renovada Once Upon A Time vai permanecer na faixa das 20h.
Dancing with the Stars e Castle vão continuar a dividir as noites de segunda-feira. Já na terça-feira, dia do programa de resultados do reality de dança de celebridades, mudanças importantes: DWTS, a exemplo de The Voice, vai passar para as 20h, a fim de ceder espaço para duas comédias renovadas na faixa das 21h – Happy Endings e Don’t Trust The B on Apartment 23. Um dos três dramas da autora Shonda Rimes renovados para a temporada 2012-2013, Private Practice vai ocupar o lugar de Body of Proof na faixa das 22h. A trama policial com Dana Delany foi transferida para a mid-season.
Durante o hiato do Dancing with the Stars, em janeiro, a ABC vai usar a faixa das 20h para exibir duas novas comédias: How to Live with Your Parents (For Rest of Your Life) e The Family Tools.
Com a mudança de Happy Endings para as terças-feiras, a faixa das 21h30 das quartas-feiras passa a ser ocupada por outra comédia novata – The Neighbors. The Middle, Suburgatory e Modern Family permanecem em seus horários normais.
Na tentativa de salvar as noites de quinta-feira após o desastre do remake de As Panteras e a experiência mal-sucedida de Missing, a ABC escalou o drama militar Last Resort, com Andre Braugher (já indicado ao Golden Globe e ao Primetime Emmy por Men of Certain Age) para a faixa mortífera das 20h. As outras obras de Rimes – Grey’s Anatomy e Scandal foram escaladas para completar a grade.
Antes de novembro, quando estream a segunda temporada de Last Man Standing e a sitcom estreante Malibu Country, com Reba McEntire, a ABC vai continuar a usar a faixa das 20h de sexta-feira para exibir parte da quarta temporada de Shark Tank, seguida dos jornalísticos Primetime: What Would You Do? e 20/20. O sábado permanecerá ocupado por futebol americano universitário, especiais como o concurso de Miss América e filmes.
Os dramas Mistresses, Red Widow e Zero Hour foram agendados para a mid-season, assim como os realities The Bachelor e Wife Swap.

Polly’s conservative when it comes to dating (no action, whatsoever), while her parents are still sexually adventurous. They think Polly turned out okay, so what’s the big deal? Well, they say it takes a village to raise a child…and in Polly’s case, this village is on fire.
