ABC turns to Rebel Wilson and The SHIELD for its Fall 2013 Lineup

May 14, 2013

marvel-s-agents-of-shield-tv-show-picked-up-by-abc-in-the-us-134461-a-1368281360-470-75ABC had some surprises in store for as they unveiled their 2013 Fall Lineup this morning. Among them was the downsizing of Dancing with the Stars (which will now only air once a week with the results included each week), moving The Neighbors to Friday and holding Suburgatory for midseason. One not so big surprise was the inclusion of two new series, the Rebel Wilson comedy Super Fun Night getting the plum post-Modern Family slot, and the Marvel comics adaptation The S.H.I.E.L.D. opening up a new programming block on Tuesdays. Both have a great shot at success and we’ll see if the Once Upon a Time spinoff, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, can make magic in the somewhat cursed 8pm Thursday slot…. Also of note, many of the dramas like Revenge and red-hot Scandal will run for two 12 episode blocks bridged by new “limited” series. Interesting… For more on these changes, and the new shows head to ABC or Deadline.com. And check out the new schedule below.

ABC Makes Some Big Moves with its 2012 Fall Schedule

May 15, 2012

Despite the departure of Desperate Housewives after 8 years, Sunday nights on ABC will still be full of soapy goodness as their buzziest freshman series Revenge relocates to that 9pm timeslot next fall. It’s one of a couple of big and interesting moves to ABC’s 2012 Fall Schedule. The other big news has one of my favorite comedies on TV, Happy Endings, moving to Tuesdays at 9 followed by Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23. That’s one hilarious hour of comedy. Unfortunately, it will be fighting against comedy blocks on NBC (Go On and The New Normal) and Fox (New Girl and The Mindy Project). I have no idea who will win this time battle, but I will have my dvrs in overdrive for sure! … The network also announced that the fall edition of Dancing with the Stars will be an all-star edition of former celebrity contenders, i.e.: one big fascinating hot mess… New comedies coming from the network include the family comedy The Neighbors which gets the plum post- Modern Family slot and Malibu Country starring Reba McEntire. Midseason brings a slew of new comedies as well with How to Live with Your Parents starring Sarah Chalke, Brad Garrett and Elizaeth Perkins and The Family Tools with Kyle Bornheimer.
New Dramas on the schedule include the country music soap Nashville starring Emmy nominee Connie Britton and HeroesHayden Panittiere, Last Resort with Emmy winner Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman and 666 Park Avenue with Emmy winner Terry O’Quinn and Emmy nominee Vanessa Williams. All three look great…. Later in the season ABC will serve up the soap Mistresses with Alyssa Milano, the thriller Red Widow and the mystery Zero Hour plus the return of Body of Proof.
For more on all these new shows, head to Deadline Hollywood here…. With all these additions, several new shows got the axe including my beloved GCB.… Also, getting cancelled were Missing, The River, Man Up, Work It, Extreme Home Makeover, Pan Am, Charlie’s Angels and Cougar Town. However, hurrah, the latter is heading to TBS for two more seasons! … With all of that said, check out ABC’s new schedule below.
