ABC 2012-13 Schedule

ABC seems to have a lot of work to do ratings-wise but I’m much less interested in their ratings than their programming so lets take a look at that.  Overall, the schedule isn’t really reinventing the wheel, but they have a few new shows that seem intriguing and the Tuesday night comedy block is either going to do gangbusters or fall like a giant rock.

#1 Moving Revenge to Sundays at 9pm in the old Desperate Housewives slot seems like a total no brainer.  I love it even more paired with the new show 666 Park Avenue which looks like the perfect soapy-horror combo (plus, evil, married Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn?  Yes please).

#2 I am both excited and worried by the Tuesday night pairing of Happy Endings and Apartment 23 (let’s just cut the crap about the title, okay?).  I’m excited because both shows have a weird twisted sense of humor and while Happy Endings has built great buzz, Apt 23 is still looking for it and could maybe get some of the run-off.  However, despite the Dancing with the Stars result show lead-in, pairing these two niche shows leaves them pretty vulnerable in my opinion.  There isn’t a whole lot of support there.  But I’ll be watching anyway.

#3 Can I give some props to ABC for bringing back Connie Britton and Scott Speedman?  Because Nashville looks like a soapy fun show and Last Resort has potential to be an intriguing action drama so I have high hopes that both will stick around for a while.
