So Agent Carter and Galavant will be what OUAT In Wonderland was supposed to be for Once Upon A Time this year, interesting.

Also they seem to have fixed Thursdays, hopefully that night remains strong for them. With an all-Shonda lineup how can they go wrong? Maybe a "too much Shonda" feeling will emerge, we'll have to see.

And it looks like our assumptions were correct about ABC using that one SHIELD ep at 9pm to test the waters for a future move. I'm looking forward to the combo of SHIELD and Forever on Tuesdays.

Anyone know if that sneak preview of Forever is the same episode as the premiere the next night or something different altogether ?

Two different episodes of Forever:

9/22/14 (Mo.) 10:00 PM ABC (#101) Pilot
9/23/14 (Tu.) 10:00 PM ABC (#102) Look Before You Leap

I think ABC is calling it a "Special Sneak Preview" because they are showing the first episode one day ahead of the regular broadcast date (Tuesday).

Thanks .Interesting (maybe) way to do things . Basically they are starting the series on Monday and then moving the show to its regular timeslot on Tuesday .Going up against the popular Blacklist and Under The Dome finale would appear a fairly difficult way to start .

That sounds like the final season for Mistresses. The ratings were on the bubble, so the only way ABC could renew it is to cut costs, which leads to the loss of the central character, which leads to a drop in ratings, which leads to cancellation. The question is: Will ABC show all 13 episodes?

ABC has picked up the new hit comedy "black-ish" and the new hit drama "How to Get Away with Murder".

"black-ish" opened as the #2 series debut and the #1 comedy debut on television by the same metric. Additionally, "black-ish" had the best-ever viewer retention out of "Modern Family" for any comedy debut.
