ABC's 2013-2014 Schedule: S.H.I.E.L.D. on Tuesdays, Less DWTS, and OUAT 's New Spin-off on Thursdays

ABC has officially released its schedule for next season, and it's the kind that I like. Several days still look familiar, but there's also enough change that it feels fresh. The biggest alteration is also a step in the right direction for humanity: Dancing With the Stars will be cut down to one night a week, forgoing its results show in favor of opening up a new night—Tuesday—to program shows that have actual scripts. And Tuesday is entirely blown up with two new dramas and two new comedies. Don't look for much change on Wednesdays and Thursdays, which each have only one new hour, and don't look for any change at all on Mondays, where DWTS and Castle are happy bedfellows. ABC did not make any mention of midseason scheduling.

Let's take a look at ABC's 2013-2014 schedule day-by-day (an easy-to-read schedule is available at the bottom of the story):


MONDAY

It's Dancing With the Stars and Castle, just like it's been for the past several years. I suggested at one point that ABC launch a new show behind Castle and move Castle to Tuesdays, but ABC didn't listen. That's the last time I tell you how to do your job, ABC! Dancing With the Stars will now be cut down to just one episode per week, which is how the show operated early in its life. If you really need your share of dancing celebrities on Tuesdays, just watch this.


TUESDAY

Tuesday is entirely unrecognizable, featuring four new shows. It's rare for a network to launch an entire night of new programming, but most networks don't have Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (pictured) in their pockets. Joss Whedon's continuation of his The Avengers story starts things off on Tuesdays at 8pm, where everyone expects it to be a gigantic hit (no pressure, Joss). That's followed by back-to-back comedies in Adam F. Goldberg's semi-autobiographical look at growing up in the '80s The Goldbergs at 9pm, and Malin Akerman as Bradley Whitford's new arm candy in Trophy Wife at 9:30pm. Ending the evening is the drama Lucky 7, about gas-station workers who pool together and win the lottery. I'm a little concerned about the drama-comedy-drama flow here, but I'm really looking forward to all four of these shows, so if they're as good as I hope they'll be, they can overcome the tone shift.


WEDNESDAY

The big question on Wednesdays was which shows would get paired with Modern Family. The Middle does the hard work at 8pm and Modern Family keeps its 9pm slot, obviously. Sandwiched between the two is Back in the Game, starring Psych's Maggie Lawson as a recently divorced mom who moves back in with her baseball-playing dad and coaches her son's Little League team. Following Modern Family is Super Fun Night (pictured), starring Rebel Wilson as a member of a group of nerdy friends who try to make every Friday, like, totally fun. Nashville (yeehaw!) stays put at 10pm. I have no reasoning for this, but I'm looking forward to Back in the Game. Eagle-eyed people with potty mouths will say, "HEY where the f*ck is g**damn motherf*cking Suburgatory?" Answer: It's not on the schedule. Don't worry, it's been renewed, ABC just wants to gamble on a breakout new show instead. Expect Suburgatory to return and fill in whatever holes ABC needs on this night.


THURSDAY

Apparently Thursdays are being dubbed, "Women Empowerment Thursdays"—seriously—which ABC does every year in its continuing pandering to the female 18- to 49-year-old audience. Shonda Rhimes gets the night from 9pm to 11pm, with Grey's Anatomy and Scandal back-to-back, where they are doing just fine. Last year's 8pm slot was filled with manly nuclear subs and testosterone-filled standoffs in Last Resort; this year it's tardy rabbits and smoking caterpillars. The Once Upon a Time spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, about Alice in Wonderland, gives 8pm a shot. It was originally conceived as a limited-run series that would air between the fall and midseason halves of Once Upon a Time, but ABC said screw that and made it a full-fledged show. Do we really need TWO horribly CGI'd fairy-tale shows on the air? Of course we do!


FRIDAY

If Thursdays are "Women Empowerment Thursdays" then Fridays are "Mish-Mash Fridays." Tim Allen's Last Man Standing is at 8pm, followed by returning comedy The Neighbors at 8:30pm. Shark Tank takes 9pm and 20/20 airs at 10pm. This is not an exciting night of television for ABC. 


SUNDAY

Empowered women bleed over to Sundays, too. First, some empowered women hold the video cameras that record their husbands getting hit in the balls on America's Funniest Home Videos at 7pm. Then it's the familiar back-to-back block of Once Upon a Time and Revenge at 8pm and 9pm, respectively. New series Betrayal (pictured), a messy soap about a woman who has an affair with a lawyer who ends up trying a high-profile case against her lawyer husband (gulp!), gives 10pm a shot. Good luck, Betrayal. That's a tough slot. 


WHAT'S MISSING?

Well, we already talked about Suburgatory, which should return to spackle whatever cracks form in the schedule as new shows fail. And of course, Happy Endings was canceled. New series Mixology, Kyle Killen's Mind Games (pictured), dead-coming-back-to-life drama Resurrection (formerly The Returned) and Tricia Helfer as a Texas Ranger in Killer Women are currently without a home. ABC also has an adventure reality show called The Quest ready to go. Apparently, that might be part of a new initiative to create limited-run series that bridge gaps during other shows' hiatueses to avoid repeats.

agree with you niedermayer27 abysmal schedule but you have so many people that think reality TV is good TV (since when do people who know they have a camera pointed at them) that it might do alright, well written TV is a far distant thing nowadays,and I agree with your choices that are good as well , although I think that shield will get old reallllllly fast,cause its gonna turn into another cops and robbers show and very rarely have super powered individuals in it

Many of you on this site know me and some even like me. I'd like to share something with you all. Due to Tim's wonderful coverage of Fringe, I wrote a book, A Brief History of Time Travel and it's exactly that and very comprehensive. I'd like to give it to you folks as I find you're the perfect audience. I also have a website and email. So, if you send me an email there for the next two days, I'll send anyone on here who asks a free copy (PDF). My website is historyoftimetravel (dot com) and the email is john at the same place. So help me out folks. I'm rather proud of this book and believe word of mouth is the answer here. So email me for a free copy, you won't be disappointed, I promise

I'm in the "female 18-49" demographic, but the only new shows I'd even consider watching are OUaT in Wonderland and SHIELD. I guess I'm not that empowered, huh (considering the only existing shows I watch are DWTS and OUaT)?

Watching the trailers for ABC's new comedies - do they really think they'll do better then if they'd renewed Happy Endings and put in on Tuesday of Wednesday? Even with the SHIELD lead in for The Goldbergs and & Trophy Wife, and the safety of The Middle/ Modern Family comedy block for Back In The Game and Super Fun Night I can't see any of them lasting long...

Looks like I'll have to watch Marvel's Agents of SHIELD online this fall. I wish they hadn't scheduled it opposite NCIS. (Thursdays at 8 pm would've been more fun... I could watch SHIELD on ABC then switch over to CBS to watch Reese kick ass on Person of Interest at 9 pm.)

All have to say is here...

If people don't like Tim Allen at all as an actor?
Why the hell are you watching his brand comedy and stuff?
simple as that change to another show or channel...
You actually find enjoyble and interesting of yourselves. Stop beating yourselves up something you don't like or enjoyble. Even when comes to famous arounds of celebrities starring into lead roles...

Do you know the ABC Network didn't renewed Last Man Standing... Just because it's a sitcom base and the co-stars...
They newed the show become of Tim Allen's comedy brand... If it wasn't for Tim Allen comedy brand and involvement?
Last Man Standing would've been cancelled after season 1 and also cancelled by now.,,
So, yes! Tim Allen is the soul and the heart of Last Man Standing... He is main reason it has a life of living going forward beyond the rating records.

Anyway,
This Fall...
Nothing but Tim Allen only...
That's all really!!!

Always thought that if ABC moves Neighbors to any other night, the show will be cancelled immediately, but I think pairing it with Last man standing on Fridays is good enough and it even might work! I personally like most episodes of LMS and Neighbors.... Also, ABC would be crazy to not bet everything on SHIELD. The first episode will open with massive numbers! Now, it comes to great writing to keep the show's massive fan-base up to par.

Yes! Now The Neighbors will die! Its audience and that of LMS are almost opposite, I'd say. Die The Neighbors! Show ABC that they made a horrible choice in renewing you and canceling HTLWYP!
Also, I think that Suburgatory and Mixology will end up on the schedule quickly, at Tuesday @ 9:00 and Wednesday @ 8:30 respectively. Suburgatory, I think, will get 22 episodes while Mixology may get around 18.

I don't agree with some of the things you are saying, but, I agree with HTLWYP-FTROYL.... It was great ! I was laughing out loud in almost all episodes. ABC as usual acted shitty and didn't give the show a fighting chance! Her parents in particular, were something else!

Grey's, Scandal, and Once Upon a Time to be broken into 12 episode runs that end to be replaced by limited series, then return when those are done.

The Quest, Betrayal, and Resurrection are being considered as limited. Wonderland probably should be too.

For the existing shows, I think The Neighbors will be hurt the most with its time change.

I am curious about Back in the Game, as I like Lawson. It may very well do better than The Neighbors did.

Haven't seen the Avengers yet, so not sure about SHIELD, but this may be their initial biggest hit, but not sure if it will be sustained.

Resurrection is the only other new show I am interested in. I hope it doesn't end up like 666 Park Avenue.

ABC may steal some of my viewing hbits this Fall. Luckily the two shows I want to see the most, SHIELD and OUAT in Wonderland, are on at times when I'm not already watching something on CBS or FOX.

Once Upon A Time in Wonderland.... seriously? Can't call it Wonderland, or something a little shorter and not almost exactly like the original; or afraid people won't get the connection? Besides I think the original was doing a good enough job on its own of mangling and ruining our favorite childood fairy tales & disney characters. Whatever, glad to see the Middle and Modern Family stayed put, about all I watch. Oh Happy Endings you were too good to share a network with this cra... company anyway.

SHIELD may be a good show but it's slotted in the same slot currently held by the #1 show on television, NCIS. And it's doubtful if SHIELD's male crowd is going to be interested in a show called "Trophy Wife."
Reply

They're probably hoping that the "younger" demographic will flock to "Shield" while the older one stays on NCIS. While NCIS is a great show and I watch it every week, last I heard it was stronger in the older demo's than the younger.

I look forward to the 7-8 episodes of SHIELD ABC airs before it gets cancelled. I know I'm up for it, but is it too high concept for the mainstream? I really hope I'm wrong.

I'm also sad they decided to water down OUaT with another full time show. I like OUaT and I still don't think I want to invest in another hour of it a week. It was a perfect idea to run it between the main show's breaks, but now, I predict an early demise.

Looks like ABC is very interested in taking out N.C.I.S. It is gutsy but I magine most people who will watch S.H.E.I.L.D. will not be watching traditionally. So timeslot ratings-wise, N.C.I.S. will still win.

I know I shouldn't say this,but what the heck, I liked Tim Allen better when I had no idea of his politics. These just don't mix with comedy.I am also bothered that he mocks that kid who is a little slow, it makes him plain mean.But then again, I do watch Last Man Standing from time to time, because I guess it tickles the almost non existent masochist in me.
The three shows that ABC has for me are the OUAT, OUAT/W, and of course Agents of SHIELD. As far as I am concerned these are walking on very thin ice and they have to make the big effort to make me watch, especially OUAT/W since so many remakes have been out with their brilliant versions of Alice, I wonder what can still be done with it.

In the Last Man Standing show, they need to change three actors:

- A new actress to replace Molly Ephraim, who can play 18-year-old Mandy Baxter better. Reason: She is more of a drama queen type.

- A new actress to replace Kaitlyn Dever, who can play 15-year-old Eve Baxter better. Reason: She acts obnoxious like Alexandra Krosney.

- A new actor to replace Tim All, who can play Mike Baxter better. Reason: Stupid idea to bring him back to the series in the middle of his movie sequels!

I know that Mixiology is not in the beginning of the ABC Fall 2013-2014 schedule. So that means it will get scheduled in midseason because one of the actresses in this show has to finish the remaining stuff from the beginning of her previous show's fifth season, first.

Kaitlyn Dever was pretty damn good on 'Justified'.

Yep.. I stopped watching Last Man Standing after the first season. Hated the new older daughter and stuff they did. I think Dever was meant to be the tomboy or son Allen never had and maybe that is why she has the attitude?

They need to replace Kaitlyn Dever without another actress, who is like Amanda fuller type, because she is acting like a Alexandra Krosney type.

Since I watch literally NOTHING on Tuesdays on network TV, I can watch SHIELD no problem! I was going to roll my eyes because Sunday didn't change, but i'm hearing the Sunday dramas will be broken into two parts of 12? Smart move. WTF has ABC done to my Wednesday Nights?!?!?!?!?!?!!??!!?!? Ok, I'm overreacting, but seriously, do NOT give Suburgatory the Cougar Town treatment -__- since I like Rebel Wilson, I'll just hope Back in the Game gets pulled soon so it can come back to the spot it never should've left in the first place (yes, i'm bitter lol)!

I watch OUAT with and largely for my mom. and while I've actually always had an unusual fascination with Alice's adventures in wonderland, I don't want to see them soap it up and I'm not sure I can handle another soap. gonna have to investigate who they have playing alice as she had better be hot. we have Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Ginnifer Goodwin and even Emilie de Ravin on the original. you know that's the only reason men watch it with their wives.

okay so it's Sophie Lowe. she's uniquely attractive. good. now bring on the white rabbit, hookah toking caterpillar and most importantly Cheshire Cat!

I'm a man and I watch OUAT for more than one reason. While those actresses are great, I'm drawn to the complex story and reimagining that OUAT pulls off. I love it. Not to mention the great character development! So, don't stereotype all men! We aren't being forced to watch it. I know a lot of guys who like OUAT haha.

You can argue that ALL shows are primetime soaps, if you want to go that route. However, this show is a great show that tells deep stories and has complex stories. No soap opera could pull what this show does off.

Nothing else like this show on TV. It's my top show at the moment.

Tricia Helfer as a Texas Ranger, with Michael Trucco as her brother, and they don't give that show a home yet? I'm bummed. Why aren't they trying to fix Sunday? They spun off a show that is dropping viewers like flies. Are they following NBC's handbook now? Good luck with SHIELD: putting all your marbles into someone who, great as he is, was never able to find more than a cult audience for any of his television dramas is a risky move. Hopefully he finds the audience that has eluded him with someone else's material. Good luck Joss, great that you are bringing Jed and Maurissa along for the ride as well, their work on 'Spartacus' was fantastic.

Yikes, for a network with woman-empowerment-Thursday, Trophy Wife sounds atrocious. Excited for SHIELD, though. Missing my favourite bitch in Apartment 23 though :(

Monday, no change is good change in this case, although at some point DWTS is going to completely crumble and they'll need to put something in there.

Tuesday, starting with Agents of SHIELD is an interesting play, I hope that doesn't mean it's going to be a kid-friendly show, that it can be all-ages without aiming intentionally downwards. SHIELD battling NCIS should be epic, fortunes will be won and lost on the fight between ABC and CBS for that timeslot.

The rest of Tuesday looks forgettable, and that's too bad. I might give Trophy Wife a looksee as Tuesday is already a soft night on the DVR, but I suspect this will get retooled by midseason.

Oh Wednesday, what have you done? Shot in the foot. I picture Super Fun Night getting cut at lightning speed, and Back in the Game fading out towards February. Nashville seems like an ok fit here if you don't mind how bad it is as a show.

So, Monday is female-viewer heavy, Wednesday is female-viewer heavy, and Thursday is ladies' night? "ABC needs women." Also, we already have two horribly CGI'd fairy-tale shows on the air, OUATIW makes three (or are you forgetting Grimm?).

Friday isn't a bad layout, it won't make money but it'll do its job. Friday is family night on ABC, just not discerning families.

Sunday, that sounds like a recipe for ratings mediocrity, especially going OUAT into Revenge and then Betrayal, gonna eat it hard there.

And finally: Fuck you ABC dickheads for canceling Happy Endings in place of this bland schedule.

No I am concerned that they are going to try to be all things to all people. And end up being nothing to nobody. That is what Terra Nova did and that is why it isn't on TV anymore. Now the large difference is that Joss Wedon knows what he is doing. He has always been able to walk that line between quality and widely accepted. I hope that is the case. If ABC doesn't mess it up then it should be good.

I'm confident about the show's success and quality. Shows like Terra Nova need to be darker/mature while shows like this have that ability to be lighter and fun and be brilliant and appealing to all people.

Not gonna lie, putting SHIELD at 8pm on Tuesday's was a risky move against the competition. However, knowing how many people love The Avengers, it could be a huge hit. Hopefully it will help sustain the rest of Tuesday's schedule.

Otherwise, I know I'm not the only one frustrated on Sunday's. For anyone who actually follows TV ratings (tvbythenumbers), you know that OUAT and Revenge tanked this season. in those time slots. Quality of the show aside, they were scheduled horribly and could not sustain their high numbers. Thankfully Revenge is having a staff change-up and hopefully OUAT is a little more structured next season. Betrayal, although it's early to say much, seems to fit in thematically.

I'm also surprised with OUAT in Wonderland. Considering that show is pretty tied in with OUAT, wouldn't it make more sense to schedule them together or at least closer in the week? Revenge has already proved in its first season that it works in a 10pm slot. OUAT in Wonderland is much more fantastical than the realistic and soapy Grey's/Scandal.

I love Super Fun Night's timeslot but I think ABC missed a big opportunity to give Scandal the 9pm timeslot and move Grey's into the 8pm deathslot. Both could probably thrive there.

I don't think the schedule is as bad as it could have been. so that is something I guess. I think SHIELD starting off Tuesday night could work, and should be a better lead in to the comedies than DWTS was last season, but the comedies will still have stiff competition with New Girl and Mindy Project. Now Thursdays may just be crazy enough to work, though I would have preferred ABC to put a cheap reality show in that 8pm slot, but if any show could have a chance in that slot, and not wanting to risk putting SHIELD there, I would have put Wonderland there as well. So this crazy schedule of ABC might just work.
