ABC Family Schedule Changes, Gilmore Girls Returns; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of October 5, 2015)

Gilmore Girls

ABC Family has made some schedule changes that will start on Monday (Oct. 5). Boy Meets World will air from 7am-930am replacing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dawson's Creek and an episode of The Middle until further notice. This means Buffy and Dawson are completely off the schedule starting Monday. The Middle will still air weekdays 2-4pm. In addition, Gilmore Girls is coming back to the schedule and will return and air at 11am replacing an hour of Boy Meets World until further notice. 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.
