ABC and NBC open up new comedy nights.
Each network scores FOX and CBS score a new sitcom hit. NBC continues to have disastrous Mondays and Wednesdays in the Fall. Veteran programs House, The Office, Desperate Housewives, and Community continue to slide in the ratings, and two of them end their runs. The X Factor isn’t a megahit, but leads FOX to a demo win in the Fall for the first time, and helps stabilize FOX’s year-round schedule. CBS continues to be strong on every night except Sunday, and orders only a few midseason replacements. ABC finally gets a drama hit (or two) , as well as something that sticks at 8pm on Tuesdays: a sitcom starring Tim Allen.
