ABC has a lineup change in the works for Wednesday prime time. The network will plug the upcoming second season of “American Crime” into the 10 p.m. ET/PT Wednesday slot currently held by “Nashville,” TVbytheNumbers.com reports.
The new season of “American Crime” will debut Jan. 6. “Nashville” will go on hiatus and is set to return to the lineup in the spring.
“American Crime’s” first season averaged a 1.2 rating in the key demo of adults 18-49, comparable to the results this fall for “Nashville,” the report notes.
“’American Crime’ will take on a new case this year but returns several cast members, including Timothy Hutton, Emmy winner Regina King, Felicity Huffman and Elvis Nolasco,” TVbytheNumbers notes. “The show will take on issues of sexuality and class differences through a case involving two athletes at a private school being accused of assaulting a student from the local public school.”
