ABC has released their 2013 fall schedule as the network prepares for its Upfront Week presentation taking place later this afternoon. There are not many big changes to the schedule; the network will be leaving its hit shows exactly where they’ve always been, which seems like a good move.

Dancing with the Stars, which has been losing ratings steam this season, will be relegated to one night a week and will no longer have a result shows.

Rebel Wilson’s new comedy Super Fun Night will get the coveted post-Modern Family timeslot. As for ABC’s most difficult timeslot (Thursdays, 8 p.m.), that will be filled by the anticipated Once Upon a Time spinoff, Once Upon a Time In Wonderland. Will it have what it takes to break the cancellation curse?

Finally, ABC is taking a gamble on Tuesday nights, filling the evening with all new programming. Kicking off the night with the sure-to-be-a-hit Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is definitely a wise choice. It will be followed by new comedies The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife and new drama Lucky 7.

ABC has not released a midseason schedule, but we assume Suburgatory will be on it along with newly ordered dramas Killer Women, Mind Games, Resurrection and new comedy Mixology.
