ABC Announces 2014-15 Schedule with a Shonda Rhimes Themed Thursday

Welcome to day 2 of 2014 Upfront Week. Today is all about ABC and as we gear up for their presentation later this afternoon, lets take a look what your DVR’s might look like next season.

Kicking the week off on Sunday will be returning dramas Once Upon A Time, Resurrection, and Revenge, Monday nights will also remain the same with Dancing with the Stars and Castle. Tuesday night will see a slight switch-up as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. moves to the 9pm hour while new comedies Selfie and Manhattan Love Story will serve as lead-ins, new drama Forever will fill the somewhat doomed 10pm hour.

Returning sophomore comedy The Goldbergs finds a new home on Wednesdays as its paired with The Middle, Modern Family, and new show Black-ish, the night will finish up with Nashville. Thursdays should be renamed to “The Shonda-land drama block, sponsored by your favorite red wine” as ABC puts all its Shonda Rhimes eggs in one basket as her new drama How to Get Away with Murder will join her existing babies Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal (both of which move up one hour).  Finishing off the week on Friday will be Last Man Standing, followed by new comer Cristela then the return of Shark Tank and 20/20. 

Newbies  Agent Carter and Galavant will served as winter fill-ins for both OUAT and S.H.I.E.L.D. while American CrimeSecrets and Lies, The Astronaut Wives ClubThe WhispersFresh Off the Boat and new seasons of The Taste and The Great Christmas Light Fight are all on tap for mid-season.
