By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has filled in the remaining holes of its Thursday and Sunday lineups as it heads into midseason.

Thursdays will see repeats of "Shark Tank" lead off the night at 8:00/7:00c on January 31 ("Episode 309") and February 7 ("Episode 314"), bridging the gap between the series finale of "Last Resort" on January 24 and the launch of "Zero Hour" on February 14.

Meanwhile, ABC News will serve up new "Revenge for Real" specials on Sunday, February 10 and 17 at 10:00/9:00c. The two previous installments - which aired in March of last year - focused on the murders of Ted Ammon, a Hamptons millionaire; and Steve Nunn, the son of fabled Kentucky Governor Louie Nunn.

Said duo will likewise keep the Sunday, 10:00/9:00c hour warm until the launch of newcomer "Red Widow" on March 3 now that "Happy Endings" and "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" have been pulled (read the story): January 20 (a repeat of "Shark Tank"), January 27 (the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "The Makeover"), February 3 (repeats of "Modern Family" against the Super Bowl on CBS), February 10 and 17 (the aforementioned "Revenge for Real" specials) and February 24 (the 85th Annual Academy Awards).
