ABC on Tuesday revealed their full fall schedule for the upcoming season, and by and large, we’re surprised at just how little is different. The majority of the shows are in their standard timeslots and the network is taking a big risk when it comes to their new Nathan Fillion series The Rookie.
We won’t waste too much time here building things up — let’s get to the schedule! All times listed here are Eastern.
8:00 – Dancing with the Stars
10:00 – The Good Doctor
The good news here is clearly that Dancing with the Stars seems to be going back to its standard format — we are not going to see a transition over to doing all athletes again, at least for the time being.
8:00 – Roseanne
8:30 – The Kids Are Alright (new comedy)
9:00 – black-ish
9:30 – Splitting Up Together
10:00 – The Rookie (new drama)
In putting The Kids Are Alright on after Roseanne one of the things that we’re going to see if this show can find a way to be anywhere near as successful. Meanwhile, ABC is taking a big gamble on Nathan Fillion’s The Rookie in a timeslot that has been murder to shows on the network over the years.
8:00 – The Goldbergs
8:30 – American Housewife
9:00 – Modern Family
9:30 – Single Parents (new comedy)
10:00 – A Million Little Things (new drama)
This is a solid lineup for the most part — the new shows are a gamble, especially Designated Survivor was struggling massively by the end.
8:00 – Grey’s Anatomy
9:00 – Station 19
10:00 – How to Get Away with Murder
#TGIT will be officially back, even if Shonda Rhimes herself is leaving ABC for Netflix.
8:00 – Fresh Off the Boat
8:30 – Speechless
9:00 – Child Support
10:00 – 20/20
We almost sense a little bit of shade being thrown at Fox and Last Man Standing here — these comedies are battling off against it in hopes of getting that family crowd.
7:00 – America’s Funniest Home Videos
8:00 – Dancing with the Stars: Juniors
9:00 – Shark Tank
10:00 – The Alec Baldwin Show
It’s an interesting move to completely abandon scripted programming altogether on Sundays but we get it — ABC has struggled more with scripted fare as of late.
