ABC Moves 'Body of Proof' to Midseason

Dana DelanyFans of Dana Delany, there's no need to panic. 'Body of Proof' will come out -- just not as soon as originally thought.

According to Variety, the ABC medical examiner series that was to debut at 9PM on Fridays this fall has been pushed to midseason. The reason? ABC wants to give it a chance in a better timeslot.

ABC plans to give the series a healthy marketing plan prior to launch. You know, like they gave the now-cancelled 'My Generation.' (Those billboards and public transportation ads are still up, by the way.)

There are a few possible timeslots for 'Body of Proof' to slip into: 'The Whole Truth' has not been a ratings success at 10PM on Wednesdays, and 'Detroit 1-8-7' has slumped at 10PM on Tuesdays.

CBS rules Friday nights with 'Blue Bloods.' NBC's 'Outlaw' has already fallen to Tom Selleck's might, so it's probably better that the show is finding a different home. In 'Body of Proof's' place on Fridays will be 'Primetime: What Would You Do?'

'Body of Proof' stars Delany as Dr. Megan Hunt, a brilliant neurosurgeon who becomes a medical examiner after a series of emotional traumas. The series also stars 'Star Trek: Voyager' alumna Jeri Ryan,

Another medical examiner who is in love with herself, I got sick of that in the show BONES! And why does every woman on TV no matter what her position never can button her blouse up? I get, clevage is sexy but it isn't realistic when you are supposed to be working. I wish they would have let Hawaii 5 O rest in piece, the new one is a joke and I can't sit through it! They ripped off the show Criminal Minds with that pathetic spinoff and Law & Order LA was a big disappointment, they could have gotten a better cast. I can't stand Blue Bloods because the entire family acts like New York would fall apart without them.

I do love The Defenders though and never miss Detroit 187 and Harry's Law. The Chicago Code is interesting and I really am glad they kept Southland! BTW in the 10th season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent Goren and Eames will return to the show, they will have a new captain also. All I have to say about that is, it's about time!

Too many new shows on at the same time, same goes for the bad ones. I happen to like Outlaw, and I finally saw Defenders and loved it. So far, Hawaii 50 does nothing for me (watched the original as a kid and hard to replace) - same goes for Selleck's show and L&O,LA. Detroit 187 is good (Lt. Fancy from some long running police show is on this one).

I actually think this is a smart play. Maybe after the holidays the whole general stink of how the new shows have not been doing too well will go away and people will more likely tune in.
