ABC Family Fall 2010 Schedule Has Still Standing, Friday Night Lights; GMC Removes Cosby

Welcome to another installment of the fall schedules barrage. Today we take a look at ABC Family 2010! There is word that ABC Family will be re-branding and will be called ABCF soon, so we will have more on that when official. As for the fall schedule, the schedule starts after Labor Day. On Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 6), The Secret Life of the American Teenager Catch-Up marathon will air from 11am-8pm leading into the summer finale at 8pm. The season will resume most likely in January. Secret Life's mid-season finale will lead into the ABCF's newest acquisition, Friday Night Lights (as we previously announced) at 9pm. Reruns of the drama will then move to and air weekdays at 6pm starting the very next day (Tuesday, Sept. 7) when the fall schedule starts.
The weekday morning schedule will remain intact from 7am-12pm, which has Boy Meets World, Sabrina, What I Like About You and Gilmore Girls. However, afternoons will see a makeover. Weekdays in the 12 noon hour will have a new sitcom acquisition! ABCF has acquired the sitcom Still Standing and will air it in the weekdays at 12pm hour replacing Full House. Yes, Still Standing has not been on cable for a year after its contract expired on Lifetime before the start of fall 2009. My Wife & Kids remains in the 1pm hour, but Full House is now airing in the 2pm hour replacing the second hour of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, which remains in the 8am hour. From 3-5pm will now be four airings of That '70s Show, as it moves from 6-8pm. The new 3-5pm slot will replace the second hour of Full House and also Grounded for Life, which is now off the schedule once again. No idea if and when it returns (if it didn't expire). At 5pm, Gilmore Girls remains leading into the newly acquired Friday Night Lights at 6pm, as mentioned earlier. AFV will air in the 7pm hour on Tues-Fri, with movies on Monday.
Primetime will remain the same, with movies replacing the Monday night schedule after Secret Life ends its summer season. Original sitcom Melissa & Joey will continue to air on Tuesday nights at 8pm through Oct. 12. The sitcom premieres Aug. 17 after the summer finale of Pretty Little Liars on Aug. 10. Pretty Little Liars will likely also return in January for the second half of its season. The same is likely for Make It Or Break It's second half. ABCF has not yet renewed Huge, but Greek will be back for a fourth season sometime this fall, but it has not been scheduled yet.
Weekends will be filled with movies. Various sitcoms will be used as fillers from time to time to start the mornings off like That '70s Show, My Wife & Kids, and Boy Meets World. Missing from the weekend late night schedule is Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, so it looks like it is now gone. Movie premieres are Gone in 60 Seconds, Kangaroo Jack, The Return of Jafar, Aladdin and the King of Thieves, Johnson Family Vacation, Honey, White Oleander, Liar Liar, and Nim's Island.
View the FULL ABC Family Fall 2010 schedule and highlights. And stay with us for more fall 2010 schedules for the rest of the summer!

Earlier this week, GMC removed Cosby (1996-2000 series) from its line-up. Cosby was airing weekdays in the 11pm hour and was replaced by another hour of Amen. Hopefully the Cos returns soon, as Amen already airs in the 1am hour. Other changes that happened were Sister, Sister returning to weekdays, airing from 8am-10am. This is in addition to its Saturday stack airings (8am-3pm). Dramas still fill the rest of the weekday line-up with Highway to Heaven at 10am, Early Edition at 11am, more Highway to Heaven at 1pm, Doc at 2pm, Sue Thomas F.B.eye at 3pm, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman from 4pm-8pm, and primetime has Sue Thomas, Early Edition and Doc from 8-11pm.
Will there be changes come the fall? Stay with us on our fall schedule barrage and you might find out!
