Default ABC renews The Good Doctor.

The hit freshman drama joins Modern Family and The Goldbergs coming back to ABC next season. On another note, Good Doctor doesn't have its own board yet? Current Dramas needs redone, there are several cancelled shows from past seasons there.

The Good Doctor criticized for depicting autism as a disability "superpower"

Because Monday is World Autism Awareness Day, psychiatrists Christy Duan, Vasilis K. Pozios and Praveen R. Kambam explain in a Hollywood Reporter column whywhy hit ABC drama has proven to be "bad medicine" for autism and autism awareness. "So what’s wrong with Hollywood representing only one end of the autism spectrum?" they say. "Ignoring the modern psychiatric view of autism, film and TV repeatedly depict autism as a sort of disability 'superpower.' Such representations do a disservice to autistic people by creating the new myth of the 'model neurominority.'" They also criticize Hollywood for mostly depicting people with autism as white men. "The association of autism with white men could manifest as underdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis among women and people of color," they write.

Morgan can be irritating, she was an unnecessary addition. Too bad Jared is leaving. I would like to see the flashbacks return in season 2, they added to the show. Great move making Lea a regular!

I wonder how they'll get rid of him? Kill him off or he leaves to another hospital. I'm kinda glad because I never really liked him.

And this show needs to have its own board! It's a pretty good show.

I find it hard to believe anyone with autism could be as smart as this guy. Prodigies in autism are usually musical savants or something. Does anyone know of an autistic person who's an academic genius on the level of Dr.Murphy??
