ABC shifts ‘Goode Family,’ Moves Up ‘Japanese Game Show’

Jun 5, 2009  •  Post A Comment

ABC has said goodbye to "The Goode Family" on Wednesdays– and hello to a new Friday night comedy block.

The network has pulled next week’s scheduled episodes of the low-rated animated comedy, replacing them with an extra original episode of its summer hit "Wipeout," according to ABC.com. "Wipeout" will air at 8 and 9 p.m. on June 10.

Then, on June 17, ABC has decided to move up the second season premiere of "I Survived a Japenese Game Show." It will replace the double run of "Goode" in the 9 p.m. Wednesday slot. The network said earlier this spring that "Game Show" wouldn’t return until July.

Despite super-low ratings in its most recent outing, "Goode" isn’t disappearing from ABC’s schedule. It’s moving to Fridays at 8:30 p.m. on June 12, slotted behind original episodes of "Surviving Suburbia". At 9

"Wife Swap" currently airs Fridays from 8-9. ABC had previously decided to air repeats of "Samantha Who" Fridays from 9-10, starting this week– perhaps to warm up the timeslot for "Ugly Betty," which relocates to the night in the fall.

An ABC rep couldn’t be reached for comment late Thursday.
