ABC announced today that they picked up Agents of SHIELDS for a 7th season ahead of the 6th one that is slated to air this summer. Which makes me think that this upcoming season is so good with a cliffhanger so great they had no choice but to pick it up even if the numbers are really awful. But in the summer awful can be good. We shall see/


ABC parts way with their Entertainment head and replaces her with Freeform’s

ABC has had disastrous fall. Even The Conners is back down to reality ratings. Therefore, it should be no surprise that they decided to part ways with the President of Entertainment Channing Dungey. They are replacing her Karey Burke, who runs Freeform.

Burke, in my opinion, is worse because Freeform is also in bad shape. Plus, she cancelled Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy and Chasing Life without giving them proper goodbyes. Even though the shows were still doing well in the ratings and replaced them with shows no one is watching.

I don’t know how she will turn ABC around, but I wish her luck because out of all of the networks they support sitcoms. Hopefully, she will continue to do the same.


Is ABC Splitting Up Together with the Kids Are Alright?

ABC debuted 7 new shows this fall and today the final one found out its fate. That show is Kids Are Alright that got the bottom nine bringing their total to 22 episodes. The frosh was not the only show to get additional episodes today. Splitting Up Together was asked to do 5 more episodes.

The two sitcoms join (with their total episodes for the season) The Conners, 11, A Million Little Things, 17, The Rookie, 20 and Single Parents, 22.

Wait, that is only six shows, so what is missing? ABC banished Alec Baldwin’s talk show was banished to Saturdays yesterday.


A Million Little Things only gets 4 more episodes

For most the summer A Million Little Things was the worst new show of the season. Then I saw a comedy and a drama that were worse. Well, I guess even though I hated the show, a few million people disagreed with me. That is because ABC picked up the depressing drama for 4 more episodes. They say it is a full season, but on average a full season is 18-22+ episodes.

Which makes me think that this is a placeholder because Rookie is not doing as well as they expected.

I will say two positive things about the show, it has a great cast and excellent music.


The third new show to get a full season pick up is…

Last week, NBC picked up Manifest for a full season and CBS did the same with FBI. Today, we raise a wine glass to Single Parents because ABC asked them to stick around too.

Is the news a surprise? Nope, because it continually does well after Modern Family. As it should because it gets better with each episode. While the pilot was a little better than OK, the second episode and third episodes were better than the ones before it.

A big reason why is that there is a lot of chemistry between the cast. They play really well off of each other which makes the brilliant lines given to them even funnier.

If you have never seen the show, then check it out tonight at 9:30p on ABC. I promise you will get a few laughs from it.
