Fall TV 2014: ABC

By Zach

th

I honestly have no idea what goes on on ABC outside of the hour and a half time on Tuesday that is Agents of SHIELD into The Goldbergs but they seem to have retained a bunch of their shows, like Scandal, Revenge, Grey’s Anatomy, Castle, Once Upon a Time and Nashville.  The Goldbergs is the only new comedy that survived the chopping block and, while not setting the world on fire like they probably hoped, SHIELD will be back for another season next year, getting joined by another Marvel show, Agent Carter.   Check out what’s coming for new shows, most of which are comedies and the new ABC fall schedule below.

After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media “followers” than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.
