LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is saying "Here Come the Newlyweds" to "Oprah's Big Give."
The network has confirmed the series, in which newlyweds from different backgrounds compete in challenges designed to test their relationships, will premiere Sunday, March 2 following "Give" at 10:00/9:00c.
Jay Blumenfield and Tony Marsh are behind the Warner Horizon Television-based hour, which has a six-episode commitment. The Alphabet had previously planned to run repeats of "Desperate Housewives" in the hour.
Meanwhile, ABC has booked "Primetime: What Would You Do?" for Tuesdays at 10:00/9:00c starting February 26. The five-week series takes over for "Boston Legal," which completes its pre-strike run on February 19.
Then on Tuesday, April 1 at 10:00/9:00c, look for the Barbara Walters special "Live to Be 150... Can You Do It?" to fill the hour.
It's not clear what will assume the Sunday, 10:00/9:00c and Tuesday, 10:00/9:00c slots once the aforementioned runs complete.
