ABC moves The Middle to Tuesdays

Announcing its fall 2016/17 schedule yesterday at the Upfronts in New York, ABC revealed it is moving The Middle to Tuesday nights for its eighth season.

The show will be leaving its Wednesday night 8/7c time period, which the show has held since its second season, to head up a new two-hour block on Tuesdays.

On Tuesday nights, The Middle will kick the night off at 8/7c, followed by new sitcom American Housewife at 8:30, returning sophomore sitcom Fresh off the Boat at 9/8c, and returning freshman comedy The Real O'Neals at 9:30. Superhero drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D rounds off the night at 10/9c.

Over on Wednesday nights, The Goldbergs takes the 8/7c slot, new sitcom Speechless follows at 8:30, Modern Family remains at 9/8c, and black-ish retains the 9:30 time period. New drama Designated Survivor finishes the night off at 10/9c.

ABC's comedy stable is rounded out with Last Man Standing and Dr. Ken on Friday nights at 8/7c and 8:30, respectively.
