  • Shonda Rhimes’ new drama series Scandal will debut April 5 at 10p following Grey’s Anatomy.  This scheduling strategy will move Private Practice with its four remaining episodes to Tuesdays at 10p following the Dancing with the Stars results show.
  • With the September premiere of Katie Couric‘s daytime talk show, the decision on what to do with ABC’s remaining daytime soap General Hospital is still out, according to Lee. 
  • Lee said new episodes of Pan Am will air through the end of February and after that the fate of the frosh show will be decided.
  • For its second season, ABC may opt to move the location of Revenge away from the Hamptons, also per Lee.

Showtime has renewed its baseball docu-series The Franchise for a second season though the team to be featured has not yet been announced.  During its first season the San Francisco Giants were spotlighted and over eight episodes the series averaged 651,000 viewers.
