ABC Delays 'Emily' & 'Jake' Even More Plus Special Tuesday Airing of 'Crumbs'; Museum of Television and Radio

Yesterday ABC told us that they will expand The Bachelor: Paris to two hours on Feb. 6 and 13. Meaning, Emily's Reasons Why Not and Jake in Progress will not air those two weeks, in addition not airing this Monday due to a encore of The Bachelor: Paris and on Jan. 30 a special InStyle Weddings will air. As of now, Emily's Reasons Why Not and Jake in Progress will air on Monday, Feb. 20. The following week, Feb. 27, is the two-hour season finale of The Bachelor: Paris.
ABC also probably is testing the waters for next season as a special episode of Crumbs will air on a special night and time. On Tuesday, Feb. 7, ABC will air an all-new episode of Crumbs on a Tuesday, at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Martin Mull guest stars. Crumbs will continue to air on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m., this Tuesday airing is a "one-time-only" airing. I think ABC should move Crumbs to Tuesdays next fall and bring back a four comedy night. Commander in Chief will be pre-empted on that night only. ABC should move that to Mondays and that should help them next season in place of Monday Night Football. And at 9 p.m. that night a second new episode of According to Jim will air. It will also air at its regular 8 p.m. slot as well.

Some of TV's biggest stars and hottest behind-the-scenes personnel are headlining the 23rd annual William S. Paley Television Festival, which will be held February 28 through March 15 in Hollywood.
