Things have been rocky over at ABC for years. What looked like a promising crop of much needed rookies 3 years ago now looks to be disappointing at best. Since then ABC has not gained much traction with their rookie shows (only renewing 3 this year) and their veterans continue to show their age. It appears to be the song that never ends. This schedule (much like NBC’s) is on the conservative side with very few changes and perhaps a temporary answer to one of their most troublesome timeslots.
