Last fall, the focus was on NBC’s struggles and attempt to break out of last, but it was really ABC who may have been the silent “failure” of the season. ABC has seen it’s fair share of struggles recently, but the critical focus on NBC cast a shadow on the Alphabet network. With struggling dramas, launches of new sitcoms and even staples like “Dancing With the Stars,” the Alphabet network hopes to make better waves this season. Launching an all-new Tuesday night, knocking DWTS to one night a week, and trying out a few new sitcoms, a fantastical spin-off, and hoping to build off of last season’s breakout hit (“Scandal”), ABC hopes the tides will turn. Check out ABC’s new offerings below and let us know what you think! We’ll be tackling Fox and CBS in the upcoming days, as well.
Remember, you can check our our Fall Day-By-Day Grid to see what’s up against what each day this season.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., premiering Tuesday Sept 24 at 8|7c
Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet).
