ABC Sets Fall Premiere Dates, Officially Swaps 'The Neighbors' & 'Suburgatory'

ABC is sticking to a relatively traditional fall rollout, premiering the bulk of its lineup during the official premiere week of September 24. The biggest exception is high-profile new drama Nashville, which will launch October 10. (ABC had success last fall with a late premiere for Once Upon A Time, which debuted even later, on Oct. 23.)
