ABC still wants to learn the ABCs from Abbott Elementary

ABC loves the Emmy-winning sitcom Abbott Elementary so much that they picked it up for a fourth season today.

It is not the only show to get the good news today. The Golden Bachelorette, Celebrity Family Feud, and Jeopardy Masters are also returning!

Which show are you most excited about getting another season?


The Good Doctor is checking out this season
January 11th, 2024 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced today that this season of The Good Doctor will be the series’ last.

“The Good Doctor has been a once in a lifetime opportunity, but it’s time to say goodbye, co-showrunners David Shore and Liz Friedman and fellow executive producer Erin Gunn said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud of the work we’ve done and the message we’ve been privileged to be a part of. We look forward to giving our fantastic fans, the truly extraordinary Freddie Highmore, the rest of our talented actors (and friends), and the best crew in the business the series ending that you all deserve. Thank you, Sony; thank you, ABC; thank you all.”

It has been time for a while, but at least it is getting a swan song to properly say goodbye. Although there were some seasons, I was like, please put it out of my misery. But last season wasn’t one of those.

The Good Doctor is not the only show ending its run on ABC. This is also Station 19’s final one. And I am sure more shows will be joining them, like The Conners.

The farewell season debuts on February 20th.


ABC announces when their Fall shows will debut
November 16th, 2023 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

Due to the strikes, we lost the Fall season. Therefore, those shows will debut in early 2024. Today, ABC announced when their series will be back!

This is not the complete schedule; more shows will be announced in the coming weeks. What won’t be on the lineup this season is the new show High Potential. Its potential is so high it is moving to the 2024-2025 season.

I just have to say whoever programmed this schedule made a few mistakes. Abbott Elementary should launch the Wednesday shows due to it being its biggest comedy. And Station 19 should follow 9-1-1 because it is doing better than Grey’s Anatomy, which is getting close to its natural end. It is not all bad. I think their scheduling for Tuesdays is smart.

8:00 p.m. “The Bachelor” (two hours)
10:01 p.m. “20/20” (all-new limited edition true-crime series, title to be announced)

8:00 p.m. “The Conners”
8:30 p.m. “Not Dead Yet”
9:00 p.m. “Abbott Elementary” (one-hour premiere)
10:00 p.m. “Judge Steve Harvey”

8:00 p.m. “American Idol” (two hours)
10:00 p.m. “What Would You Do?”

8:00 p.m. “Will Trent”
9:00 p.m. “The Rookie”
10:00 p.m. “The Good Doctor”

8:00 p.m. “9-1-1”
9:00 p.m. “Grey’s Anatomy”
10:00 p.m. “Station 19”


ABC cancels The Rookie: Feds and rejects The Good Lawyer

For six months, ABC kept The Rookie: Feds and The Good Lawyer in limbo. But today, both shows learned their fate. And they will not be moving forward, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Rookie: Feds was the FBI spinoff of The Rookie and starred Niecy Nash. It was a really good show that just didn’t get the respect it needed from ABC. And that is why it was cancelled too soon.

Then there is The Good Lawyer, which was a spinoff of The Good Doctor. I just couldn’t get into the backdoor pilot because I am still not ready to forgive Felicity Huffman. That and do we need another show like The Good Doctor?


ABC cancels Home Economics
September 29th, 2023 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

Broadcast shows are normally supposed to find out their fates in May, but Home Economics was not one of them. Today, the sitcom, which stars Topher Grace, learned if ABC is going to order more episodes. And sadly, they are not.

According to Variety, the sitcom High Potential, starring Katlin Olson, moves to the Fall. I am sure this is the first of many broadcast shows that will move from this season to the next one.

ABC still hasn’t decided whether or not to pick up The Rookie: Feds. I hope they renew it because it deserves to be back.
