ABC Family has made some schedule changes that will start on Monday (Oct. 5).

No other schedule changes will be made to the regular schedule. One other note, ABC's Blood & Oil will air on ABC Family on Monday, October 5 in primetime from 9-11pm, as ABC Family encores the first 2 episodes of the freshman ABC primetime series.
