Here is the ABC lineup!
Past Years: 2013 2012 2011
8:00 Dancing with the Stars (19th Edition)
10:00 Castle (7th Season)
ABC is keeping its Monday lineup in tact for a sixth consecutive year as they will once again leave Castle alone and not try a new drama on Mondays. Dancing with the Stars revitalized itself a little bit this season and the Monday 10pm slot is still tough so I get what they're doing here. I just think somewhere along the way they should have tried a new show after Dancing and The Bachelor, both of which are consistently solid.
8:30 MANHATTAN LOVE STORY
9:00 Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2nd Season)
8:00 The Middle (6th Season)
8:30 The Goldbergs (2nd Season)
9:00 Modern Family (6th Season)
10:00 Nashville (3rd Season)
8:00 Grey's Anatomy (11th Season)
9:00 Scandal (4th Season)
10:00 HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
8:00 Last Man Standing (4th Season)
9:00 Shark Tank (6th Season)
10:00 20/20 (33rd Season)
8:00 College Football
7:00 America's Funniest Home Videos (25th Season)
8:00 Once Upon a Time (4th Season)
9:00 Resurrection (2nd Season)
10:00 Revenge (4th Season)
Sundays will stay the same for the fall as they did better this spring thanks to a decent performance from Resurrection, a good run by Once Upon a Time, and not a complete meltdown from Revenge. This lineup should at least keep the lights on for ABC even if it doesn't set the world on fire. Resurrection has a shorter season order and will be replaced by the dark American Crime at some point. Once will have a split season with the musical sitcom Galavant running back to back episodes during its absence.
MIDSEASON: AMERICAN CRIME, THE ASTRONAUTS WIVES CLUB, THE CLUB, FRESH OFF THE BOAT, GALAVANT, MARVEL'S AGENT CARTER, SECRETS AND LIES, THE WHISPERS, The Bachelor, The Great Christmas Light Fight, The Taste
ABC has lots on deck for midseason though not as many as some years. Several of these will bridge split seasons as already mentioned. Right now there's no planned slot for Fresh Off the Boat or The Whispers so they might be first off the bench, who knows. There was no mention of The Astronauts Wives Club or The Club so perhaps those are going to be held for summer 2015.
CANCELLED: The Assets, Back in the Game, Betrayal, Killer Women, Lucky 7, Mind Games, Mixology, The Neighbors, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Suburgatory, Super Fun Night, Trophy Wife
TO SUM UP:
I think ABC did make some necessary bold moves to strengthen problems. The Wednesday comedy block looks much stronger, the Thursday 8pm hour is fixed even if Grey's disappoints by its own standards, and they seem to have a more cohesive plan for the split seasons. Of course, Tuesdays looks like a complete mess. I can't imagine ABC is expecting Selfie or Manhattan Love Story to do anything and then that hour is lost plus Forever could be another 10pm bomb. But still, if Tuesdays are their only big problem, that would be a step in the right direction.
