By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC's post-"Dancing With the Stars" lineup started to come into focus today as the network announced several new launch dates.

"Show Me the Money," a new game show hosted by William Shatner, will assume the Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c hour on November 22. The series, from Endemol USA, features players answering trivia questions and taking chances to accumulate prize money, while also contending with a "never-before-seen mechanism that can cut contestants' winnings to nothing or instantly catapult them into the millions."

Meanwhile, the Alphabet also confirmed "Supernanny" will launch its third season on Monday, December 4 at 9:00/8:00c. The series will take over for "The Bachelor," which wraps its ninth edition with a two-hour finale on November 27.

As for the Tuesday, 8:00/7:00c slot, ABC has yet to name a permanent occupant. For the time being, various specials will fill the hour - "2006 American Music Awards" on November 21, "Charlie Brown Christmas" on November 28 and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" on December 5.

Finally, the network also confirmed it has benched "Extreme Makeover" just one week into its planned four-week run. Repeats of "Grey's Anatomy" will once again resume airing in the Friday, 8:00/7:00c slot for the foreseeable future.

To review, here's a breakdown of the various changes:
