ABC has struggled to find a new successful drama for their Tuesdays at 10pm timeslot. Lucky 7 was quickly cancelled and resurrecting Body of Proof didn't work out. Now, they're trying a pair of series for 2014 -- Killer Women and Mind Games.
Killer Women will premiere on January 7th. In this crime drama, tough Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer) is one of the first women to join the elite group of Texas Rangers. She's committed to finding the truth and seeing justice served. In a male-dominated world, she is aided by her sixth sense for why women kill -- rarely out of hatred, usually for what they love.
There are eight episodes of Killer Women »
ABC has firmed up its midseason scheduling plans, slotting premiere dates for returnees “The Bachelor” and “Suburgatory” as well as five new series. The net has also opted to push back until summer the debut of reality series “The Quest,” and is moving “Revenge” an hour later on Sundays.
The net’s aggressive slate of winter premieres is designed to reduce the number of repeats of shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal,” which will take most of January and February off.
First up among the premiering shows on ABC’s midseason schedule will be cooking reality show “The Taste,” which returns for a second season despite a modestly rated inaugural season. It will bow Thursday, Jan. 2. and air from 8 to 10. “Quest” had been penciled in to air at 8 p.m. on the night but is now being held for summer.
Following “The Taste” on Thursday will be new limited series “The Assets, »

ABC just released its midseason schedule and there’s some interesting changes for several current dramas.
We’re told Sunday night’s Betrayal will conclude its 13 episode order on Jan. 19 — so no more episodes after that (it’s a “limited series,” so only 13 hours were expected this season, though chances of a second order for next year are nil so …). Betrayal will be replaced by eight-part limited spy series The Assets. Then, in another shake-up, Revenge will eventually move into the 10 p.m. slot.
Thursday’s struggling Wonderland will have its winter finale on Dec. 12 and then will go on hiatus. »

Tired of watching intricate dramas with epic pretensions? Here are six current series that are actual fun

Green Arrow was introduced to DC Comics readers in the 1940s as a kind of Batman with a bow. In the 70s and 80s, the Emerald Archer was reinvented as a wise-cracking leftie tackling eco-crimes. This latest version is more of a superhero soap: Revenge with hooded vigilantes. Smartly realising that the origin story is always one of the strongest elements of any superhero narrative, ongoing flashbacks show shipwrecked party boy Oliver Queen being put through crime-fighter bootcamp. After the mini-apocalypse finale of the first series, he's now sworn off his more extreme tactics (ie murder), while the writers continue to raid the DC toybox, adding Black Canary and the League Of Assassins.
Arrow continues Monday, 8pm, Sky1

Sneak Peek more footage from director Mark Mori's critically acclaimed documentary feature "Bettie Page Reveals All" from Single Spark Pictures, opening again theatrically across the Us, late November 2013.
"...shooting to fame in the 1950's with her fetish modeling and racy pinup photos, 'Bettie Page' continues to enchant and inspire multiple generations of women (who continue to emulate her jet black hair, blue eyes and trademark bangs) and men (who long for her). But the story behind her allure, the real person underneath that timeless youthful, sexy image, has been a mystery for the ages -- until now.
"With the release of 'Bettie Page Reveals All', a feature-length film by Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker and Emmy-winning TV producer Mark Mori, the world at last gets to hear Page's story, narrated by Page herself in the years prior to her death at age 85 in 2008.

Wes will assist Tricia Helfer’s character during a dangerous case on ABC’s upcoming crime drama.
Tricia Helfer may play bad-ass Texas Ranger Molly Parker on ABC’s upcoming series Killer Women, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be catching the baddies all by her lonesome. TV vet Wes Studi will lend Tricia’s character a hand on the sixth episode of the Sofia Vergara-produced series, HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively, playing a Native American “medicine man” named White Deer.
Described as being “comfortable in the modern world” with a “wry sense of humor,” White Deer “helps Texas Ranger Molly Parker in her pursuit of a dangerous fugitive with uncanny insights into both the case and Molly’s own personal demons.”
Sounds like Molly might have a vision quest on her hands!

ABC has slotted hidden-camera series “What Would You Do?” to fill the 10 p.m. Tuesday hour, starting Dec. 3, according to the net’s website.
The slot was vacated in October by “Lucky 7,” the lottery-winner drama that aired just twice before getting canceled. ABC aired repeats of “Scandal” and “Shark Tank” in the time period through October and is airing specials and the finale of “Dancing With the Stars” to air in the hour this month.
“What Would You Do,” fronted by John Quinones of ABC News, was a solid performer for ABC when it aired on Fridays. The show premiered in February 2008.
ABC is expected to announce some midseason sked moves soon, and on Sunday night during “Revenge,” it promoted new drama “Killer Women” as “coming in January” for eight episodes. No premiere date was announced, but one possibility is Wednesday at 10 p.m., where it could air while “Nashville” takes a break. »

We loved her as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on SyFy’s Battlestar Galactica, and now we get to see actress Katee Sackhoff kick some more sci-fi ass in Riddick. In the movie she plays Dahl, a deadly sniper who joins up with a group of mercenaries to hunt down Riddick, who is once again played by Vin Diesel.
The role allows Sackhoff to show just how much she worked out and trained and it’s a ton of fun watching her holding her own against actors like Diesel, Jordi Molla and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista. Like Starbuck, Dahl is not a woman to be trifled with, and she will leave you hurting for weeks if you are foolish enough to make a pass at her.
We got to catch up with Katee last week when she appeared at the Riddick press conference held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, »

R.I.P. The Initiative.
