ABC announces premieres dates for 2011-12 season, incl. Modern Family, Grey's and Charlie's Angels



charlies-angels.jpgIn the 2011-12 television season, ABC has moved most of its new series debuts out of the traditional time when the fall TV season begins, the third week of September.

Instead, that's when the Alphabet Network will kick off established shows such as Dancing With the Stars (Sept. 19), Modern Family (Sept. 21) and Grey's Anatomy (Sept. 22.)
