Here is the ABC schedule!
Past ABC schedules: 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011
8:00 Dancing with the Stars (23rd Edition)
8:00 The Middle (8th Season)
8:30 AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE
9:00 Fresh Off the Boat (3rd Season)
9:30 The Real O'Neals (2nd Season)
10:00 Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (4th Season)

8:30 Dr. Ken (2nd Season)
9:00 Shark Tank (8th Season)
10:00 20/20 (35th Season)
With the Friday comedies renewed, Fridays will stay exactly the same as they should. Last Man Standing and Dr. Ken were an excellent pair and Dr. Ken is the first show to get a second season following Last Man Standing. Shark Tank has lost some luster but remains a solid Friday option while 20/20 will be heading into its 35th season.
8:00 College Football
7:00 America's Funniest Home Videos (27th Season)
8:00 Once Upon a Time (6th Season)
9:00 Secrets and Lies (2nd Season)
10:00 Quantico (2nd Season)
ABC is not being very aggressive on Sundays with America's Funniest Home Videos, Once Upon a Time, and Quantico all returning to the same slot. ABC is looking to upgrade the 9pm slot though and they will try with Secrets and Lies, a show that has now not been seen for over a year. In Spring 2015, it had a so-so start in this same slot after the Oscars but built momentum and ended on a high note, earning it a renewal. But that second season never aired and ABC will wait until fall for us to finally see the next installment of the anthology series. I don't think any good will from the first season will carry over here, it's going to have to do it on its own. It's basically like launching a new show again on ABC. Since it's an anthology, it has a limited order and the plan is for genre drama Time After Time to replace it at midseason.
MIDSEASON: DOWNWARD DOG, IMAGINARY MARY, STILL STAR-CROSSED, TIME AFTER TIME, American Crime, The Bachelor, The Catch, Scandal
ABC doesn't have as much on deck for midseason as some networks. I already mentioned the plans for Time After Time, The Bachelor, The Catch, and Scandal. ABC is planning to move away from the lengthy hiatuses and "bridge" shows that they have done so much of in recent years. The comedies can be backups in case either new comedy or The Real O'Neals fails. Still Star-Crossed will be an interesting placement while American Crime could still be a bridge series if they pick one or two shows to have a long break (perhaps Designated Survivor).
CANCELLED/ENDED: Blood & Oil, Castle, The Family, Galavant, Marvel's Agent Carter, The Muppets, My Diet is Better Than Yours, Nashville, Of Kings and Prophets, Wicked City
ABC is still deciding on Beyond the Tank while I couldn't find any information on The Great Christmas Light Fight or The Great Holiday Baking Show, but I think they'll be back for a short December run.
TO SUM UP:
I really like this ABC schedule. It is so much better than past schedules from this network and the schedules released by NBC and FOX. Thursdays are now a question mark and Sundays still could be weak but they without question put themselves in position to improve on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10pm and I absolutely love the switch to four comedies led by The Middle on Tuesdays. I also love that they could finally part with Castle and Nashville. Even if Conviction or Designated Survivor flop, it's still the right (and long overdue) move. Kudos to ABC!
