Tim Allen’s "Last Man Standing" and "Charlie’s Angels" to bow this fall while "The River" and "Good Christian Belles" will kick off in midseason.

As expected ABC will use Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing to anchor an hour of comedy on Tuesday where it will compete with CBS’ NCIS. The single camera comedy Man Up will air at 8:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, Suburgatory will air at 8:30 p.m. after The Middle while Revenge, a soapy retelling of the Count of Monte Cristo, will get the Wednesday at 10 p.m. slot. And Charlie’s Angels will lead off Thursday nights.

The network will launch two new dramas on Sunday night where an aging but still successful Desperate Housewives has been a staple since it premiered in 2004. Once Upon a Time, a fantasy drama starring Jennifer Morrison and Ginnifer Goodwin, will lead off the night at 8 p.m., while 1960's set Pan Am will get the 10 p.m. post-Housewives slot.

Paul Lee, president, ABC Entertainment Group, says, "We’re thrilled to be launching a really diverse and ambitious schedule that balances the strength and stability of our returning hits with a slew of bold new shows."
