Coming on the heels of a tremendously successful 2017-18 season that boasts the No. 1 show on television (“Roseanne”), the No. 1 new drama (“The Good Doctor”) and the No. 1 reality show launch (“American Idol”), ABC is set to announce a stellar slate of programming for the 2018-19 season. Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment, will unveil the network’s new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall in New York City.

“We enter the new season bolstered by success and the stability that it affords us,” Dungey said. “The new shows we unveil today strengthen an already-vibrant schedule of some of the best television has to offer. These shows, with their compelling characters and aspirational storytelling, will keep our momentum going.”

A total of eight new series have been announced for ABC’s 2018-19 season, including the one-hour dramas “A Million Little Things,” “The Fix,” “Grand Hotel,” “The Rookie” and “Whiskey Cavalier,” and the half-hour comedies “The Kids Are Alright,” “Schooled” and “Single Parents.”

Additionally, “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors,” previously announced last year, will be on the fall schedule. A fresh take on an established favorite, the show will pair celebrity kids with professional junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines, which will be judged by a panel that will include renowned ballroom experts. “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” is produced by BBC Studios.

“The Alec Baldwin Show” (new title), which first debuted as a sneak preview in March, will also air this fall. Starring the three-time Emmy® winner, the one-hour show will showcase Baldwin’s in-depth conversations with compelling personalities. The show is executive produced by Jason Schrift, along with Baldwin and Mallory Schwartz via his El Dorado Pictures.

Fan favorites “American Housewife,” “black-ish,” “For The People,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Speechless,” “Splitting Up Together,” and “Station 19” will also return, joining previously announced series “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “American Idol,” “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette,” “Child Support,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Goldbergs,” “The Good Doctor,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Modern Family,” “Roseanne” and “Shark Tank.”

On average since the conclusion of the Olympics in February, ABC is the No. 1 TV network among Adults 18-49. For the entire 2017-18 season, ABC ranks a strong No. 2 in entertainment programming, pacing within 100k Adults 18-49 of tying NBC for No. 1. The Network claims 3 of the Top 5 broadcast entertainment shows this season (“Roseanne,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Good Doctor”), a network-leading 5 of the Top 10 comedies (“Roseanne,” “Modern Family,” “Splitting Up Together,” “The Middle” and “The Goldbergs”), the No. 1 freshman series (“The Good Doctor”) and the No. 1 TV show (“Roseanne”).

Bad schedule! Instead of Dancing with the Stars getting cut to one cycle a year, it goes back to two nights a week for the first time since the results show was cut. And yes, the junior edition is technically separate but it is the same overplayed franchise that is well past its prime. Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless are not being done any favors on Friday. Many had thought they would go there but that was before Last Man Standing was revived at FOX and they didn't upgrade its night. They would have been a lot better off on Sundays at 8:00, or even Fridays at 9:00 with no former ABC Friday comedy competition. On Wednesdays American Housewife should have stayed at 9:30 with the new comedy at 8:30. Past its prime Modern Family will continue declining next year, and The Goldbergs would be a stronger launching pad now. The new comedy airing at 8:30 would also have avoided two rookie shows back-to-back on Wednesday. Another waste: keeping Station 19 where it is and not using Grey's Anatomy to launch a new drama while it is still around. One good move was keeping The Good Doctor where it was, moving it to Tuesday like many thought would have been a disaster.

American Housewife kept going down in ratings season 2 while Speechless was more steady. AH should have been the show sent to Friday, despite ABC shoving constant ads for it down our throats Speechless had become the stronger show. Maybe that made ABC angry and they are trying to kill Speechless now, already had barely advertised it in season 2 and cut its order. The show that survived despite ABC not caring about it. Moving to Friday would have been one thing if The Goldbergs had been used to launch a new comedy, but instead past its prime Modern Family will be doing that.

I agree it was a bad schedule! Hell, if I ran ABC, I'd do an I love the 90s night on Tuesdays with Schooled, FOTB, and Roseanne! (in its original time slot!)

Boneheaded schedule here

It's just so hard to believe that this upcoming Fall schedule for ABC will be the first year without the Middle after all this time. But this will take getting used to no more Middle on ABC.

I never knew that one bad tweet would end up bringing down the most popular scripted series on U.S. broadcast television. After Roseanne Barr tweeted an incredibly racist comment directed towards a former advisor of Barack Obama's, ABC Network has decided to cancel the second special-attraction season of Roseanne, which was to have started airing this fall.

http://deadline.com/2018/05/roseanne...ts-1202399123/

I think this opens the door for American Housewife to move to an anchor slot, a "Plan B" of some sort. AH aired after The Middle in season 1 and Modern Family in season 2. Now with The Middle being gone from new episodes, ABC Network should take the opportunity to build the next top comedy and put American Housewife on the Tuesdays-at-8:00-PM timeslot next season.
