After FOX and NBC announced their new schedules this week, ABC took its turn.
Ahead of the Alphabet Network's upfront announcement on Tuesday afternoon, the team -- including ABC programming chief Paul Lee -- weighed in on their successes and failures of the past season, along with plans for the 2014-2015 schedule.
Check out our live-blog:
4:15PM An introduction from departing ABC exec Anne Sweeney highlights the addition of Lucasfilm into the Disney-ABC fold. Could we see a Lucasfilm presence on ABC in the future? Maybe, but not today.
4:27PM The clip show introducing returning primetime shows features an "Adele Dazeem" reference courtesy of Agent Coulson from "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Nice.
4:32PM Lee touts the success of staggering the runs of "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Once Upon a Time," and they're "doubling down" next season.
4:35PM "Black-ish" star Laurence Fishburne jokes that with the gaps between their teeth, he and Anthony Anderson could really be father and son.
4:41PM Lee calls Shonda Rhimes the "new President of Entertainment for Thursday nights," also bringing on to promote "How to Get Away with Murder." ABC sees big things in this one, and so do we.
4:44PM Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis's 10-episode series "Secrets & Lies" will air after "How to Get" finishes its fun, and a possible second season would feature an-new case.
4:48PM Lee compares Cristela Alonzo to Roseanne. If it can find a foothold on ratings on Fridays, this is the kind of multi-camera comedy that runs under-the-radar for years -- like its lead-in, "Last Man Standing."
4:51PM Nothing much is said about "American Crime," which will run on Sundays at midseason, but Lee raves about "Galavant," a musical comedy that'll air back-to-back episodes on Sundays at 8pm. Lee has a history of picking up head-scratching comedies -- most notably "Work It" -- but this seems to have promise.
4:57PM "Selfie" and "Manhattan Love Story" will be the only comedies airing Tuesdays at 8pm on broadcast TV. "Doctor Who" alum Karen Gillan could be a breakout star with the "My Fair Lady"-esque "Selfie," and John Cho is always a welcome addition to any show.
5:02PM "Love Story" is a little forgettable, and the dueling voiceovers could get old very fast. But Analeigh Tipton uses the same awkward charm that she brought to "Crazy Stupid Love."
5:08PM It's time to tease "Marvel's Agent Carter," which will take the place of "S.H.I.E.L.D." as expected. Hayley Atwell seems up to the job in footage from her Marvel One-Shot, and this could be perfect to bridge the gap, as long as ABC doesn't change its mind like they did with "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland."
5:12PM Jimmy Kimmel opens with a Solange-Jay Z joke. Timely, but the crowd seemed a bit nervous -- maybe they're worried the "Beygency" will come after them.
5:15PM Kimmel on Juan Pablo Galavis, the first non-white “Bachelor”: “Everybody hated him, so we’re never doing that again.”
5:23PM Kimmel's exit: "I have to go pick up Alec Baldwin and his bike in prison."
5:29PM Midseason alien drama "The Whispers" is based on a Ray Bradbury story and stars "American Horror Story: Coven" actress Lily Rabe.
5:33PM Lee refers to "American Crime" -- from "12 Years a Slave" writer John Ridley -- as the networks "biggest swing" of the season. It will examine race in America through the lens of a high-profile murder.
5:38PM It looks like they're closing things out with a preview of Wednesday night's "Modern Family" -- the first of a two-parter featuring Mitch and Cam's wedding. It starts with a nod to the pilot -- Cam's plan to introduce Lily to the family with the "Lion King" theme.
That's a wrap! Weigh in on the network's big news in the comments!
