The Fall 2013-2014 lineups have been released and things are looking pretty interesting for primetime. ABC has stated it is adding 14 new shows to its programming this fall. This might seem like a lot until you realize that FOX is adding 11 new shows and NBC is adding a total of 17 shows!! With primetime in high competition with cable for eyeballs, its no wonder that these channels are stepping up their game.
ABC is brining on-board Mavels Agent’s of SHIELD from creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon to Tuesday nights, hoping to broaden the spectrum of viewers for the channel. The hit ABC drama Once Upon a Time is is getting a spinoff, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.
With the success of shows like Revenge, ABC is adding a new program conveniently titled Betrayal, which I will assume has to do with a married couple that’s got some betrayal on their mind. Killer Women, Mind Games, Lucky 7 and Resurrection.
Shows returning for the fall season include: Once Upon a Time, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Castle, and Revenge while it has cancelled Body of Proof, Red Widow and Happy Endings.
New drama’s for NBC include Blacklist, Ironside and Dracula. Mid-season NBC plans to air Believe, a new drama by produce J.J Abrams. Grimm, Law & Order: SVU, Revolution, and Chicago Fire are among the drama’s returning for the fall.
CBS is taking a different path from all the other networks and investing in comedies instead of dramas. This might be a smart decision with all of the folks at home looking for some light television after a long day at work, but it could also be a giant flop for the consumers that want to get invested in an actual serialized storyline. Oh well, someone’s got to keep the laughs coming.
The fall season will premiere The Crazy Ones, a comedy starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Geller (which is odd, cause I’ve never seen her in a comedy.) Amongst the other comedies are The Millers, Mom and We Are Men.
CBS is also investing in two new drama’s for the fall season, Hostages and Intelligence.
Returning series include, How I Met Your Mother, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, CSI, Criminal Minds, Hawaii Five-O, etc. Honestly, from all of the networks it seems that CBS has the best record for highly watched shows on primetime TV.
As a network that saw a 20% drop in ratings this season, Fox really has to step up its game. Unfortunately, looking at the fall lineup and seeing all the cop and legal shows, I doubt its going to go very well for them. Thankfully, I don’t think American Idol has made the cut. I guess the show is finally showing the network that it isn’t all that it used to be.
Fox plans to add on three new comedies and two new dramas to the fall lineup. Almost Human, a cop drama, will be premiering in the midseason replacing Bones. Sleepy Hollow, a new mystery thriller looks highly promising for the Monday night slot. A new comedy Dads is also on the schedule along with drama, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a detective cop show. Midseason Fox will air Gang Related and Rake, both police and legal dramas.
Shows coming back for the fall include Glee, The Following, New Girl, The Mindy Project, 24, and X-factor.

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7
Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!
Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season.
Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.
DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX.
DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly.
She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.
It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.
Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.
I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”
Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.
Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew.
The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.
The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school.
We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
