ABC plans to launch its new fall season six days prior to the official start of Nielsen's prime-time season. Its 1995-96 prime-time schedule will start Sept. 12 with special previews of new series "The Monroes," "Maybe This Time" and "Murder One." Nielsen's official season begins Sept. 18, but a Nielsen spokesman said it reports all individual show ratings on a "premiere-to-date" basis. The rest of ABC's new and returning series premiere between Sept. 12 and Sept. 23, except for "NYPD Blue," the date for which will be announced later.
