* The Fox Network premiered in midseason, and as a result several of its more notable early shows such as ''MarriedWithChildren'', ''Series/TwentyOneJumpStreet'', and ''TheTraceyUllmanShow'' did as well.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Becker}}'' didn't initially make CBS's fall schedule, but it did end up premiering in November because ''The Brian Benben Show'' had done so badly in the ratings that it got yanked after just four episodes.

Note that this trope only specifically applies to broadcast network programming in the United States; different countries have different conventions, and the practices of cable networks in the United States may vary just as greatly. For example, USA Network's ''{{Monk}}'', generally considered to be one of the strongest shows on cable, premiers new episodes in the middle summer months ''and'' winter months, in a unique (though common practice on USANetwork) season split-up.

* ''TowardTheTerra'' is an anime example. After ''Anime/AyakashiAyashi'' flopped so badly that was canned midways, ''Terra'' was allowed to fill the gap, occupying TBS's anime primetime slot that previously housed "A grade" shows like ''GundamSeed'', ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' and ''Anime/BloodPlus''.

* ''FamilyGuy'' - having been canceled and then UnCancelled is notable enough, but its "uncancellation premiere" almost qualifies as a late season replacement having originally premiered the first week of May 2005. In a rare case of tactful thinking, FOX executives were confident enough of the show's popularity to bring in huge ratings despite the late premiere date.
