ABC will spread out its fall 2012 premieres from September to November, the network announced Thursday.

The network will take advantage of its Sept. 23 Emmy broadcast to promote its lineup, most of which premieres that week, including "Dancing With the Stars," "Castle," "Modern Family" and "Revenge."

New series, such as "The Neighbors," "Last Resort" and "666 Park Avenue," premiere the following week or even later. "Nashville" debuts Oct. 10 while "Malibu Country" doesn't bow until Nov. 2. See the complete list below.
