“Cashmere Mafia,” “Notes from the Underbelly” and “October Road” will premiere after “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Bachelor” conclude their fall seasons.

For full descriptions of the shows go to the ABC site. I can't do everything. I'm only one man.


First ABC should put “Notes from the Underbelly” and “October Road” back on the air right away. There's no reason to introduce a show and then make people wait for them. Why put on 40,000 new shows at once? Put “Notes from the Underbelly” on Tuesday at 8:30 so people have something they like and then premiere Carpoolers or Cavemen after Dancing with the Stars goes away.

Also I would put the family friendly Cavemen at 9:30 after "Dancing." Then put the star power of Christina Applegate to use and have it open up Tuesday night.


Same with “October Road.” Put that on at Wednesday at 8 before "Private Practice" and the drama. Why make a whole night of brand new shows? That's a lot of pressure.

It's great That ABC is putting on new shows on Friday. Last year it quickly became a night of second runs and news shows.

All in all, a pretty strong schedule.
