ABC Fall Schedule & Passed Pilots Being Reevaluated In Light of Roseanne's Cancellation

Share on Reddit

In light of Roseanne's expiration, Deadline notes ABC spent the day in meetings as to what they could do to replace Roseanne, be it by looking at the comedy pilots they passed on or reshuffling comedies to find a new Tuesday at 8 anchor. Per Deadline, It's noted Fresh Off The Boat/Speechless are not expected to move from the new Friday comedy block lineup. Modern Family isn't expected to move from Wednesdays at 9 as it's expected to launch Single Parents. It's also noted that because Roseanne was so touted at Upfronts, Deadline reveals they have until Friday to get together a new fall schedule to sell to advertisers. I thought many of you would like to read this article (the full, detailed version is via the link below) and share your thoughts in the comments below.

I hear among the possibilities in consideration for filling in the hole is bringing in The Goldbergs spinoff series, Schooled, the only comedy series ABC has on the bench for midseason, for a fall launch. Additionally, I hear ABC is considering picking up one of the comedy pilots that came close to a series order. Getting strong buzz is Steps, starring Ginnifer Goodwin. Revolving around four adults in three houses raising three kids after two divorces — together — Steps is said to be similar to the ordered-to-series Single Parents, which had been among the reasons for it not getting a series order despite being an internal favorite alongside frontrunners Single Parents and The Kids Are Alright. I hear Steps could be tweaked if its scores a series pickup. Another ABC comedy pilot in consideration is Untitled Justin Noble, starring Kat Dennings. It is a workplace comedy as is Schooled. (All other ABC half-hours are family comedies.)
