It should have been a warning that the network was in trouble because I started watching more.
Like NBC Thursday which always tried to cram in one sticker, ABC had a solid Wednesday, which tried to cram in one stinker. But I get the feeling I’m horribly out of step about what I’m calling stickers. Thing is I don’t think the incredibly predictable wine cooler comedies are doing better then the shows I’ve been calling original and clever. It’s the cleavage coms of CBS they want to beat, but ABC isn’t demographiced to go that low cut.
As a result of trying to fix themselves they are both dissolving into mediocrity.
I’m surprised to see Once Upon a Time being called family friendly. It doesn’t look that way to me.
Did ABC lose Monday Night Football? It looks like it was moved to ESPN in favor of Dancing with the Stars. I don’t know if it’s worse off on ESPN because if it was on ABC it would have been retooled at least twice since then, but I haven’t been crazy about the move.
