Video Preview: ABC's New Shows

  • 60comments

Here are more previews of the new shows coming out next season, this time from ABC. Unfortunately, all we have at the moment are clips instead of trailers, so you'll just have to make knee-jerk judgments based on these out-of-context scenes. Trust me, it's easy. One unfortunate missing piece: A clip for ABC's No Ordinary Family, the superhero show starring Michael Chiklis. We'll post that as soon as we get it. [UPDATE] It's at the bottom! [UPDATE on the UPDATE] Now with full trailers instead of rinky-dinky clips!
