ABC’s 2016-17 Primetime Schedule reveals a number of changes big and small.
Fan favorite Castle is gone, by Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell’s Conviction moves into its Monday night timeslot. American Housewife slides into the Tuesday slot between The Goldbergs and Modern Family, while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. moves back an hour into the 10 pm slot.
On Wednesday, potential top flight sitcom Speechless takes the slot between The Middle and Fresh of the Boat, while Designated Survivor gets Nashville’s old slot. Notorious becomes the first non-Shondaland Thursday show moving into the Scandal spot (Scandal having been moved to med-season) between Grey’s anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder.
Friday and Sunday stand pat. New comedies waiting in the wings are: Downward Dog and Imaginary Mary. New dramas are: Still Star-Crossed and Time After Time. Follow the jump for ABC’s Fall Schedule and series descriptions.
Now that you’ve seen the fall schedule for NBC, here’s a chance to check out first look trailers for Timeless, This Is Us and The Good Place. And these aren’t the 12-15 second clips that ABC released; these are all full-length trailers.
Some quick thoughts: Timeless reminds me of the old UPN show 7 Days with its time travelers trying to preserve history; This Is Us looks interesting, as three people with the same birthday intersect, and The Good Place – young woman goes to The Good Place by mistake and has to try to live up to it – looks like it may be (with Speechless) be my favorite new comedy. Check out the trailers after the break.
