"Super Fun Night," "Ironside" Premiere Wednesday Night

ABC/Greg Zabilski(NEW YORK) -- A new sitcom about a single woman living in New York City and a rebooted police drama about a wheelchair-bound detective make their fall season debuts Wednesday night.

Super Fun Night stars Rebel Wilson as a single woman living in Manhattan who is more used to hanging with her two girlfriends on a Friday night than going out.  She slowly begins to step outside of her comfort zone.

During a recent press event for the sitcom, Wilson said her character Kimmie is based on her life in Australia.  Wilson says she spent her Friday nights at home eating candy on the couch with her sister until she decided to see if there was more to life. 

Super Fun Night airs at 9:30 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

In the reboot Ironside, Blair Underwood stars as NYPD Detective Robert Ironside. His spine was shattered by a bullet, but he doesn’t let his wheelchair slow him down as he investigates crimes with his hand-picked team of detectives. 

The original Ironside series aired on NBC from 1967 to 1975.  It was set in San Francisco and starred Raymond Burr.

Ironside premieres at 10 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.
