ABC’s The Good Doctor has been given a full season order after being the top-rated new drama on broadcast television – and also being the biggest gainer in TV playback (the series premiere’s audience jumped 5.5 million in non-linear).
ABC is setting up an interesting 2017-18 season with programming ranging from pure soap to comic-book fantasy to science fiction. Here are my gut reactions (and rankings) of the trailers for ABC’s new fall and midseason shows.
When ABC’s 2017-18 Primetime Fall Schedule kicks in, there will a few changes – one of the biggest being that The Mayor and The Gospel of Kevin will take over Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Tuesday night timeslot – with S.H.I.E.L.D. being held in reserve for midseason – as part of kind of ‘Thank God It’s Tuesday’ comedy rollout that also features Freh Off the Boat (new timeslot) and black-ish (new day and timeslot).
Dancing with the Stars and rookie medical drama The Good Doctor stake out Mondays; American Housewife slides into the otherwise intact the Wednesday schedule, fitting in between Modern Family and Designated Survivor.
