  • The Once Upon a Time spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland will run concurrently with the original series, as it will air Thursday nights at 8pm ET.
  • Rebel Wilson’s new series Super Fun Night will air in the coveted post-Modern Family slot on Wednesday nights.
  • The reality competition show Dancing With the Stars has been cut back to one night a week, with the results show scrapped entirely.
  • The Neighbors has been moved from Wednesdays to Fridays, where it will air after Last Man Standing at 8:30pm ET.
  • Returning comedy series Suburgatory is being held for midseason, so don’t expect to see it until after the new year.
