10:00 – Grand Hotel (new series)

Of all of the dates that are listed here, the one that is clearly the biggest surprise is the one in which Grand Hotel is premiering in the summer. It’s not often that you see a network schedule something more than six months down the road! While this may look on the surface like ABC throwing up a white flag with this show, it’s not all that bad when you think about it. This show is meant to be a fun, soapy drama and it’s airing after The Bachelorette. In theory, this could actually be a really good time for it to shine without having to worry about any competition.

In general, though, it does feel like ABC needs to start worry about their summer a little bit more, while their schedule in general has a number of little things that need to be worked out. Their performance on Friday these days has been pretty abysmal, They haven’t really been able to figure out Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. Eastern altogether effectively, and apparently they are shelving the spring cycle of Dancing with the Stars altogether unless there are plans to reveal something a little bit more substantial down the line.
