'Body of Proof' Gets Post-'DWTS' Time Slot, 'The Walking Dead' DVD Info and More

Body of ProofABC wasn't kidding when it said 'Body of Proof' would get a proper promotional push. The Dana Delany drama will premiere March 29 at 10PM ET, right after 'Dancing With the Stars.'

According to Zap2It, the medical examiner drama will premiere in Italy, Spain and Hungary in January and February.

ABC originally intended 'Body of Proof' to be a Friday contender, but this season, networks have had both success and failure on that night. NBC failed to attract an audience for 'Outlaw' and 'School Pride,' whereas CBS has found millions of viewers for 'Blue Bloods' and its transplanted 'CSI: NY.'

The Tuesday time slot puts 'Body of Proof' directly in competition with another female-driven series: 'The Good Wife.'
