Mid-Season:

New: Off the Map, Happy Endings, Mr. Sunshine. More new mid-season series will be announced at a later date.
Returning: V, Supernanny, The Bachelor. Possibly more soon.
The Bachelor will air from 8-10pm starting in January on Monday nights, before Dancing with the Stars returns in mid-March.

NOTES: New comedies Mr. Sunshine and Happy Endings could still launch in the fall (likely Wednesdays at 10) if The Whole Truth can't recast the lead in time. Also, two alternative series from this past season Shark Tank and Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution are still in contention for a mid-season return, as is Wife Swap but they haven't been picked-up yet. V could return as early as November on Tuesdays at 9PM following the conclusion of Dancing with the Stars. ABC is likely going to schedule tropical medical drama Off the Map after Desperate Housewives on Sundays at 10pm (the original Grey's slot) in the spring after Brothers and Sisters concludes its season (only 18 episodes). CBS has canceled both Old Christine and Ghost Whisperer, so there is a chance ABC can pick one or both of those up.
The upfront presentation for ABC is at 4pm ET. Stay tuned later for a recap.

The Big Bang Theory, network television's No. 1 comedy series among Adults 18–49 and Adults 25–54, is set for a multiplatform off-network syndication launch in Fall 2011 on the Fox Television Stations in local syndication and Turner Broadcasting's TBS on cable, through a strategic partnership with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
The Fox-owned stations have acquired the exclusive off-network broadcast television rights in the following 10 markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Houston, Phoenix, Miami, Orlando and Baltimore. Stations will be able to air it in early evenings and late fringe.
On cable, TBS will be the exclusive provider of off-network episodes of The Big Bang Theory and will also commence airing the series in fall 2011 as a weekday strip. TBS will be able to air it in primetime.
TBS will pay about $1.5 million per episode with broadcast stations paying about $500,000 per episode. Read the full press release.
