ABC will unveil a new fall schedule to advertisers in New York today that includes three new dramas, two new sitcoms and cuts "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" back to two nights a week.

"The Wonderful World of Disney" Sunday movie slot is staying put from 7-9 p.m. after much speculation about it moving to another night. The 9 p.m. slot held by "Millionaire" this season will give way to the Touchstone Television drama "Alias," starring Jennifer Garner as a college student who moonlights as a secret agent. "The Practice," which has notched huge viewership gains this season, stays put at 10 p.m.

Monday will see "Millionaire" leading into "Monday Night Football." Tuesday and Wednesday will again feature 8-10 p.m. comedy blocks, Thursday will lead off with sketch comedy "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" followed by a new sketch series from "Whose Line" player Wayne Brady. "Millionaire" and newsmagazine "Primetime Live" return to round out the night.
