ABC is making more changes to its summer schedule post-NBA Finals. After Celebrity Wife Swap perked up in what were supposed to be its final weeks in the Tuesday 10 PM slot, the network is opting to keep the reality series in the time period. Celebrity Wife Swap, which previously was going to move to the Thursday 8 PM slot, will continue in its current Tuesday berth from June 24-July 29. It will be replaced in the Thursday 8 PM hour by softly rated new Thursday 10 PM drama Black Box, which will air the rest of its 13 original episodes starting on June 19, after the NBA Finals. ABC News’ NY Med now will take the Thursday 10 PM slot, beginning on June 26. (The Thursday 9 PM dweller, Rookie Blue, will launch its season with a 2-hour opener June 19.)
