ABC Fall Lineup 2018 TV Schedule and New Shows Lineup Announced!

ABC Fall Lineup 2018 TV Schedule and New Shows Lineup Announced!

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said she doesn't expect the next season of "Roseanne" to focus on politics. "If anyone came to play a drinking game for how many times we mention "Roseanne" - you're welcome".

Besides also saying "our president is a lunatic, and we are all going to die", Kimmel kept his promise to go very light on Donald Trump and politics and focused his firepower on the fast-changing television business.

"We thought that the writers were simply tipping their hat to those shows", Dungey said to reporters.

Just a couple months ago, ABC permanently shelved an already-shot episode of Black-ish called "Please, Baby, Please", in which the Johnson family addresses the controversy with Colin Kaepernick, the NFL, and the national anthem.

During the call, Dungey said the show's second season may move away from politics.

Dungey reiterated that the network tries to be "as diverse and inclusive as possible" across all metrics, from race to gender to religion to economics.

He added, "I think that one of the things that was fresh for us with "Roseanne" on the air is that it is focusing (on) a family that is in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air". He reminded everyone in attendance that Shonda Rhimes has departed ABC for a new deal at Netflix and that ABC shows like "Inhumans", "Deception", and "Quantico" all failed to measure up.

Originally, ABC ordered nine episodes for the revival, a number they've since upped to 13 for the fall.

The junior edition will air for one hour on Sundays, followed by new episodes of Shark Tank. However, ABC nixed the show (Fox picked it up), possibly leaving egg on Dungey's face in light of Roseanne's success. It will be joined by the new drama "The Rookie", in which Nathan Fillion's character decides to leave his small town to join the Los Angeles Police Department, becoming the force's oldest rookie.

WTF? Moment | One new slogan is more than enough for a single presentation, but that didn't stop ABC from rolling out two dizzyingly similar "Straight Forward" (ABC News) and "Forward Together (ABC)". The new drama "A Million Little Things", about a group of friends trying to fully live after the death of one of their own, will cap off the night.

Still, the line from early in the reboot about Dan and Roseanne Conner sleeping on the couch then waking up after missing black-ish and Fresh off the Boat echoes in some people's minds: "We missed all the shows about black and Asian families", Dan says.

This was the first time Freeform was incorporated into ABC's upfront presentation. New series launching during midseason include "The Fix", "Whiskey Cavalier" and "Grand Hotel".
