2004–05 United States network television schedule

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This was the United States broadcast television schedule on all six commercial television networks for the fall season beginning in September 2004. All times are Eastern and Pacific, with certain exceptions, such as Monday Night Football.

Beginning this season, the major networks were no longer producing original dramatic content for Saturday broadcast (an exception being ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney, although it often featured rebroadcast material). Saturday schedules consisted instead of nonfiction reality-based programming and rebroadcasts of dramatic series episodes from earlier in the week.

New series are highlighted in bold.
