The ABC fall schedule has been released. Here are some quick thoughts on it:
Monday: 8pm Dancing With the Stars 10pm The Good Doctor
I have no interest in Dancing with the Has Beens. I watched a couple of episodes of The Good Doctor, but there are better medical dramas than this.
Tuesday: 8pm Roseanne 8:30pm The Kids are Alright(new show) 9pm Black-ish 9:30pm Splitting Up Together 10pm The Rookie(new show)
I will admit that I am watching Roseanne for nostalgia reasons. It’s OK, but not as good as I remember the old show. I don’t watch Black-ish, but I’ve seen some episodes of the spinoff on Freeform. Splitting Up Together is growing on me. I really like the cast. I don’t know that I will watch the new shows even though I like Michael Cudlitz and Nathan Fillion.
Wednesday: 8pm The Goldbergs 8:30pm American Housewife 9pm Modern Family 9:30pm Single Parents (new show)10pm A Million Little Things(new show)
American Housewife is one of my favorite sitcoms. Modern Family is getting old and I generally watch more out of habit. I might try Single Parents because I like some of the cast(Leighton Meester and Brad Garrett) and I will watch A Million Little Things because it is James Roday and I loved Psych.
Thursday: 8pm Grey’s Anatomy 9pm Station 19 10pm How To Get Away With Murder
I still watch Grey’s and Station 19 is surprisingly good. I got tired of HTGAWM pretty quick.
Friday: 8pm Fresh off the Boat 8:30pm Speechless 9pm Child Support 10 pm 20/20
Fresh off the Boat and Speechless are two really good sitcoms and will be a good block of comedy for old people like me who don’t go out on Friday night. Also an interesting counter programming of FOX’s revival of former ABC show Last Man Standing
Sunday: 7pm America’s Funniest Home Videos 8pm: Dancing with the Stars Junior 9pm Shark Tank 10pm The Alec Baldwin Show(new show)
Nothing of interest here
Midseason shows: American Idol, SHIELD, The Bachelor, For the People, new shows The Fix, Grand Hotel, Schooled and Whiskey Cavalier.
I really like For the People and Whiskey Cavalier stars Lauren Cohen, so I will definitely watch those two. I’m getting a little tired of SHIELD, but I’m hoping this will be a short wrap-up final season.
