ABC has ordered 12 new shows after a season when it renewed only one freshman drama (Nashville), one new comedy (Neighbors), and killed all the rest (Red Widow, 666 Park Ave, How to Live With Your Parents, and a slew of others). And though the network is more stable than NBC, and has a few big hits, it is in fourth place because NBC has football.
And that is why there are some big bets here, including the biggest for the new season: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Joss Whedon.
Going forward, Dancing With the Stars is being reduced to only one night a week (Mondays), allowing Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to air on Tuesdays for an all new night of television: It will be followed by a comedy block of The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife and then the drama Lucky 7.
ABC had its upfront on Tuesday, and presented the trailers for the new shows, which are now embedded (along with my reactions to them).
The network's full fall schedule is at the bottom of this post, and the new shows are arranged by night of the week. For renewals and cancellations for all the networks, take a look here.
