NOTES: ABC has announced their fall schedule and we have some notes on the schedule.  First up, Dancing with the Stars will have an All-Star edition in the fall! You'll see some former champions, former stars who came close, and some controversial stars returning to the ballroom! ABC also announced a new hip comedy hour on Tuesdays at 9 with buzzed series Happy Endings and Apartment 23. Come January, the Tuesday comedy hour will turn into a block, with the additions of How To Live With Your Parents for The Rest of Your Life at 8 and The Family Tools at 8:30. We do not have a set night and time yet for the return of Body of Proof, but it will be back in mid-season. ABC will also bring back Wife Swap in mid-season. The Bachelor will return in January on Monday nights.  ABC also announced that mid-season drama Mistresses starring Alyssa Milano and Yunjin Kim will air on Monday nights, but it wasn't clear exactly when as at one point they mentioned May and another time it was mentioned with The Bachelor, which runs Jan-Mar. So, as they say...stay tuned. No night and times for the other two new mid-season dramas: Red Widow and Zero Hour.

The upfront presentation for ABC is at 4pm ET. Stay tuned later for a recap.

Discuss ABC's 2012-13 line-up and also you can view complete program information.

As we first mentioned earlier this year, two original sitcoms are coming to first-run syndication this fall with 104 episodes each from Entertainment Studios. We gave you the cast and details for The First Family, but now we have details on the second comedy--Mr. Box Office! The sitcom just wrapped its pilot episode and is about a major movie star who is sentenced to community service at an inner city high school in South Central Los Angeles. Bill Bellamy, Jon Lovitz, Vivica A. Fox, Gary Busey and Keshia Knight Pulliam star in this all-star cast! The cast also includes Rick Fox, Tim Meadows, Tony T. Roberts, Alex Thomas, Jeff Garcia, Marcus Paulk, Giovonnie Samuels, Tequan Richmond, Giselle Bonilla, Davi Santos, Nick Nervies, Erin Westbrook and Clifton Davis.
Mr. Box Office centers on actor Marcus Jackson (Bellamy), one of the biggest movie stars in the world who, after pushing a paparazzi, finds himself having to put his film career on hold, while relegated to a long-term community service stint teaching underprivileged high school kids in South Central. Rick Fox will play a physical education teacher at the school. Vivica Fox will play a cougar history teacher. Like The First Family, it'll be on broadcast syndication, cable, and digital media starting this fall. Keep it right here for further information, so stay with us!
