ABC Names Midseason Premiere Dates, Moves ‘Lost’

Dec 5, 2006  •  Post A Comment

ABC announced premiere dates for its two midseason comedies, as well as a time-shift for one of its keystone dramas.

The network will debut “The Knights of Prosperity” (originally titled “Let’s Rob…”) and “In Case of Emergency” at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., respectively, on Wednesday, Jan. 3.

That means when 9 p.m. Wednesday drama “Lost” returns Feb. 7, it will slide into a new time slot, Wednesdays at 10 p.m.

Last week, ABC won the November sweeps for the first time in seven years among adults 18 to 49 and is seeking to maintain its momentum going into the more difficult spring season.

“Knights,” which was pushed from the fall slate, concerns a gang of new-age Robin Hoods. “Emergency” follows four former high school friends who find themselves under the care of the same doctor.
