TV Upfronts: ABC's New Shows for 2012-2013

When Scrubs moved from NBC, and I got hooked on Castle, I started watching ABC more than any other network, and the trend's continued mostly due to Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 (which are coming back!) I bring this up because for the first time in while, I don't care for any of ABC's new offerings, so the time I spend watching the Alphabet may be drastically reduced, but we'll just have to wait and see.

666 Park Avenue

So, it's a supernatural soap opera in a haunted apartment building? No thanks.

The Family Tools

I did find myself laughing a few times during the trailer, but this show's destined for a short lifespan since Kyle Bornheimer's involved. Poor guy can't catch a break.

How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)

I'm a big Sarah Chalke fan (except for when she's dating Ted or Bobby or the guy who bangs pies), so I'll probably check out a few episodes of How to Live With Your Parents. It feels very on-brand for ABC, but I'm curious about why it's going to be on Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays.

Last Resort

You'd think I'd be all about a show about nuclear submarines starting its own nation, but I'm really not. I just have to come to terms with the fact that Shawn Ryan doesn't make shows that are targeted at me as a viewer.

Malibu Country

I'm glad that ABC's bringing back a lighter version of TGIF since traditional, multi-cam, family sit-coms are rare, but that doesn't mean I'm going to watch it. It's safe to say that I'll probably be skipping Malibu Country (even though I might still watch Last Man Standing.)


This is probably the only new ABC show that interests me, mostly because Nashville looks like what Smash should have3 been. If I can give the latter an entire 15 episodes, then I'm sure I can give Nashville a few shots.

The Neighbors

This is the show that's getting the plumb post-Modern Family spot? Seriously? Now, I know that I should reserve judgment until I actually see an episode or two, but really?

Red Window

I still have no idea what this show's about. Skip.

There's also Zero Hour, but for some reason ABC's made the trailer private, so I couldn't post it here. I will if it becomes available.
