LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is bringing back "Notes from the Underbelly" and "October Road" in time for November sweeps while "Men in Trees" and "20/20" are getting new homes.

In addition, "Dancing With the Stars" spin-off "Dance War" is set to launch on Monday, January 7 at 8:00/7:00c as part of a revitalized Monday lineup.

Season two of "Road" will kick off on Thursday, November 22 at 10:00/9:00c following an all-new "Grey's Anatomy." The series will then settle into its regular Monday, 10:00/9:00c home on November 26.

"Samantha Who?" will also slide to 9:00/8:00c on November 26, making room for "Notes" at 9:30/8:30c. [Updated 1:15 PM - Separately, the Alphabet has confirmed it has asked for six additional scripts of the Christina Applegate-led newcomer.]
