In another case of finally using their bigger shows to boost the newbies, ABC is scheduled to air the second episode of the Dana Delaney procedural Body of Proof after a new episode of Desperate Housewives on April 3. The alphabet has sometimes been a little hesitant to rock the boat with their scheduling, but between this move, putting Mr. Sunshine behind Modern Family, and allowing the Off the Map premiere to get a second viewing post-Grey’s, it seems that they’re finally using their assets wisely. It’s not been a great few seasons for new ABC dramas (in terms of ratings), so this move could help solidify Body of Proof into the next channel mainstay.
