ABC Upfronts- Fall 2014



ABC is totally revamping in order to get back to number one! The network came in third-place this in ratings this season. So what will do the trick? Obviously adding in one more Shonda Rhimes to the Thursday lineup. ABC moved up the Grey’s time-slot to 8pm, Scandal to 9pm leaving the third slot open for the new drama, How To Get Away With Murder. The legal thriller is set in law school with Viola Davis playing a professor. Sounds promising for sure.


While the CW protects itself with a slew of supernatural/comic book shows, ABC is going in a multiethnical direction, which they explained was “the changing face of America.”

“We set out to reflect America, and we ended up unleashing a whole new wave of creativity,” said Paul Lee ABC Entertainment Group President.

“Quite simply, least-objectionable programming is dead. If it’s passion that defines our brand, this year we decided to turn up the heat,” he added.

Cristela and Black-ish join the lineup. Black-ish stars Laurence Fishbourne and focuses on a middle class African American family. Cristela is about a Mexican woman torn between her ambitions to be a lawyer and her traditional family values. Additionally, the network picked up Fresh Off the Boat a comedy about Asian American, which will be held for midseason.

The network is adding a total of six new series to its fall schedule and another six for the midseason.


Here’s a whole breakdown of the new/returning shows thanks to

“Selfie,” 7 p.m. Tuesday – A social-media queen named Eliza (Gillan) feels friendless, until a marketing expert named Henry (played by John Cho) steps in to spiff up her brand. A comedy loosely based on “My Fair Lady,” says an ABC news release.

“Manhattan Love Story,” 7:30 p.m. Tuesday – Analeigh Tipton (“Hung”) and Jake McDorman (“Shameless”) star in a romantic comedy.

“Forever,” 9 p.m. Tuesday – A New York City medical examiner played by Ioan Gruffudd (“Glee”) seeks an answer to his life’s greatest mystery — his own apparent immortality. A drama.

“Black-ish,” 8:30 p.m. Wednesday – Laurence Fishburne (“Hannibal,” “CSI”) plays father to a suburban couple (Anderson, Ross) dealing with identity issues. A comedy.

How to Get Away With Murder,” 9 p.m. Thursday – Viola Davis (“The Help,” “United States of Tara”) stars as a law professor. The legal thriller gives superproducer Rhimes all three drama time slots on the night. (Said Lee: “Nobody does empowered women like Shonda Rhimes.”)

“Cristela,” 7:30 p.m. Friday – Cristela Alonzo (“Mind of Mencia”) stars as an ambitious law student trying to navigate her family’s traditional values.

Coming at midseason: “American Crime,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Galavant,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Secrets and Lies,” “The Whispers.”

Returning: “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “The Bachelor,” “Castle,” “Dancing With the Stars,” “The Goldbergs,” “The Great Christmas Light Fight,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Last Man Standing,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” “Nashville,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Resurrection,” “Revenge,” “Scandal,” “Shark Tank,” “The Taste” and “20/20.”

When Does ‘Manifest’ Season 4 Part 2 Release on Netflix?



Are you ready for Flight 828 to make its final descent?

On April 7, Netflix revealed the release date for the second half of the plane drama, along with a new teaser trailer to hold fans over. 

Manifest Season 4 Part 2—all 10 episodes—will land on the streamer on Friday, June 2, 2023. For those that are keeping score, it’s a year ahead of the June 2, 2024 Death Date (so does this mean they find a way to beat it?!). 

Netflix typically releases new episodes at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, which means it will drop at 3:00 am Eastern and 2:00 am CT. 

And according to the teaser trailer, things are just as ominous as we expected when we saw the final shot of Season 4 Part 1 of Angelina bringing forth destruction via volcanic fissures.  

“The world is ending and we know when,” Josh Dallas’ Ben Stone remarks in the trailer as everyone emphasizes June 2 numerous times. 

Here’s the full synopsis for the forthcoming final set of episodes. 

“A mysterious accident delivers ominous warnings on a biblical scale that will further jeopardize the livelihood of all the passengers,” the synopsis reads. “As Michaela [Melissa Roxburgh] grieves the loss of her beloved husband Zeke [Matt Long], she must team up with her old flame Jared [J.R. Ramirez] to find new methods to investigate Callings.”

Watch the teaser below:

The end may be near, but there’s still plenty of story left to tell—and we hope that they do right by the ending, giving a satisfactory conclusion to longtime fans who have rallied behind the series from day 1 when it was still on NBC.
