I LOVE that I'm getting my dream Happy Endings/Don't Trust the B hour! It was a pretty obvious way to go, but still, good job, ABC.

I like Revenge on Sundays. My two "must see" shows (OUAT & Revenge) back-to-back is awesome! I think Happy Endings & Apt.23 back-to-back is a good move (and one that I really wanted, but didn't know how they'd do it). I find it interesting that they seem interesting in reviving something akin to TGIF with Last Man moving to Fridays. I think it could actually be a smart move to do their more family friendly sitcoms on Fridays. If it works, I bet The Middle will end up on Fridays next season. Its been so long since I heard about any of the proposed pilots that I forget what's what, but I think I'm looking forward to Nashville (and 666 Park Avenue based on the title alone).

And now that I realize they've put Happy Endings up against New Girl -- which gets better ratings and probably shares a very similar audience even though I don't understand the appeal -- I'm sure I'm going to eat my words.

Oh, well. Happy Endings FTW.

I think they have a strong schedule, much like Fox, and one that makes sense. ABC also has strong midseason options. I don't see Last Resort doing well at all, but after OUAT became a surprise hit, it's possible it could hit.

I think LMS and Malibu Country will do fine on Fri. Smart move by ABC. I do worry about a stark drop in the ratings for LMS though.

Revenge at 9 on Sunday's after OUAT is brilliant. I really hope Revenge thrives and doesn't drop off. 666 Park Avenue after Revenge is a smart move, however, I would have had 666 after OUAT and then Revenge, it's a better flow, though I see why ABC did what they did.

I think they should move Castle to Tuesday's or Wednesday's and let a new drama get the cushy DWTS slot on Monday. I bet a soapy show would thrive there.

ABC are so arrogant, they will destroy themselves with this schedule - their shows aren't strong enough to pull this off. And my favourite shows will be the casualtties no doubt :(

Sunday - Revenge will get crushed by Cable shows - they share the same audience. Families that watch OUAT will not watch Revenge. They most certainly did not watch DH - why would this be different?

666 Park Avenue doesn't appeal to me.

Monday - I suspect Castle will be the initial looser between H50 and Revolution. If Revolution is strong, Castle is toast.

Tuesday - I want to cry. My two best comedies Happy Endings/Apt 23 against New Girl/Mindy Project and against Go On/New Normal. I want to watch 5 out of the 6. I suspect all 6 share a similar audience. All 6 shows will be lowly rated :( Fuck you ABC for doing this.

Wednesday - over it. Thurday - Grey's squashed in between failure either side. Friday - they will do here.

Its like ABC decided to try crush NBC wherever potential for success existed on NBC's schedule. They are not CBS and will end up destroying both ABC and NBC shows leaving awful tv in its wake.

I think Revenge to Sunday's is an excellent movie. But it creates a problem for me, I'm the viewer that watches all the Sunday cable shows- Walking Dead, Dexter, Homeland, Shameless, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones.

I actually think ABC has a pretty solid schedule. Tuesday night is going to be very interesting. NBC, ABC, and Fox all have great comedies on that night that I want to check out. I want New Normal to be a big hit though..

You're not the only one - hence bad idea...

That said, there's no way I'm missing Revenge. I'll record the other shows at different times :)
