ABC TV fall schedule

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and American Idol will be back later. So will, I presume, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Some extra detail:

KIDS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS - An update of the old Art Linkletter segment, hosted by Tiffany Haddish.

MIXED-ISH - A spinoff of Black-ish starring Rainbow Johnson about growing up in a biracial family in the 1980s

EMERGENCE - A long form mystery about a police chief (Allison Tolman) who takes in an amnesiac child near the site of a mysterious accident and finds out the girl is a key to a vast conspiracy.

STUMPTOWN - Cobie Smulders as an army vet turned PI with a gambling problem and an invalid brother in her care.

The Fix (which is wrapping up its season-long case this week), Whiskey Cavalier, Speechless, Splitting Up Together and For the People have been cancelled. Agents of Shield (whose current season started just last week) and Station 19 will be back for another season in 2020.

Good news about The Rookie, which had been on the fence, as was How to Get Away with Murder.

Several years ago, Minnie Driver filmed a pilot for a series that never aired in which she played a housewife turned detective. They filmed one scene at a high school football stadium, supposedly during a game, and, in one scene, Minnie was sitting in the bleachers carrying on a conversation with another actress sitting next to her. Our daughter was an extra for the show and was sitting on the other side of Minnie. So, if the pilot ever aired, we could have seen our daughter in some of the shots. Alas, it wasn't picked up and never aired.

Emergence looks like it could be interesting and Cobie Smulders could make her vehicle interesting as well. But I'm becoming surprised by how few network shows are left that I'm particularly interested in. Most of my network time now goes to the CW. --Bob

Other than Agents of SHIELD returning in 2020, ABC will not have my eyeballs in attendance for ANYTHING on this schedule.

the CW, with all the superhero shows, will get the majority of my attention. Well, at least it will give me a chance to whittle down some of my Netflix queue.
