For the second straight year The Bachelor has been left off ABC's fall primetime programming schedule.
Instead, the network has announced The Bachelor's fourteenth season will premiere in midseason and air in the Mondays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot Dancing with the Stars' ninth-season performance episodes will occupy this fall.
Last May, ABC left The Bacheloroff its fall schedule -- representing the first time since 2005 that the long-running reality dating series was not part of the network's fall lineup.
However Mesnick later decided to dump Rycroft and ask for a second chance with Malaney during The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special that was taped in Los Angeles six weeks after the finale filmed.
