According to the actor, ABC is indeed thinking about premiering the show in January to allow the network to run the series straight through with no breaks.
Naveen expressed interest in the series moving out of its current 10:00 p.m. time slot saying: “I think they should make it sort of like what it was before,” Andrews opined. “I liked it when it started a little bit earlier, because a lot of the audience are kids, aren’t they? I thought, hmm.”
