ABC pushes 'FlashForward' return to March

Network also sets a spring premiere date for 'V'

Some ABC viewers just had a flashback. The network ran a promo at the end of Thursday's "FlashForward" letting viewers know the show would return March 4.

It's similar to the announcement made at the end of "V," saying the show would return that same month. But while the "V" message met with relief, the "FlashForward" push is being met with dismay, especially since fans expected the show to continue in January.

ABC wants to get the show out of the way of the Winter Olympics and air the show straight through without repeats.

The network also set a firm date for the return of "V": March 30.
