ABC's 2014-2015 Schedule: S.H.I.E.L.D. at 9pm, Black-ish After ModFam, and a Shonda Hat Trick on Thursdays
Thursday night is Shonda night on ABC this fall. The network will move Grey's Anatomy and Scandal to 8pm and 9pm, respectively, to make room for Shonda Rhimes' new series How to Get Away with Murder in Scandal's current 10pm time slot. When How to Get Away With Murder wraps its first season in March, new Ryan Phillipe drama Secrets and Lies (which has a 10-episode order and will likely be a limited series) will take over the 10pm time slot.
Another shift in scheduling: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting bumped back an hour, to 9pm on Tuesdays. It will follow new comedies Selfie and Manhattan Love Story.
New comedy Black-ish will air Wednesdays at 9:30pm, getting the plum post-Modern Family spot. Earlier on Wednesdays, '80s-set comedy The Goldbergs will setting into a new time period between The Middle and Modern Family.
New Captain America spin-off Marvel's Agent Carter and fairy-tale musical Galavant will serve as "bridge programming" during the winter hiatuses of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and Once Upon a Time, respectively. Note that in 2013-2014, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was originally expected to be used similarly—during OUAT's winter hiatus—until ABC decided to schedule it at 8pm on Thursdays, where it ultimately failed pretty spectacularly in the ratings.
