It’s time for another go around on hearing your thoughts on various Disney topics. This time around, we are discussing ABC programming. For those who aren’t aware, ABC is having a tough time in the ratings department. Though they have two huge hits with Shonda Rhimes’ programs (Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy) and a claim on Friday nights with the success of Shark Tank…everything else is kind of a dud.
While some are semi-duds, like Nashville, which only has a 1.3 rating live, it boosts to over 3.0 with DVR, so I do expect it to receive a 3rd season, some are dead-on-arrival, like the mini series The Assets that was yanked off the air after 2 episodes.
Some people want to see a TGIF concept come back to Friday nights, but ABC knows they have a lock with their crazy hit Shark Tank. They make it a kind-of-sort-of TGIF with Last Man Standing and The Neighbors, but neither are doing incredibly well.
Last season, a Big Thunder Mountain show was passed on, while Lucky 7 came and went just as fast as the “Wildest Ride in the Wilderness”. Their Sunday night is quickly becoming a problem as well, with Revenge being moved to the dreaded 10pm time slot and Once Upon A Time‘s ratings slipping faster than Cinderella’s glass slipper.
