The alphabet network hasn't had much luck launching successful new shows. What's more, a lot of their existing shows are down year-to-year. Thankfully, the execs can't cancel everything.
Returning shows (so far): 20/20, America's Funniest Home Videos, Castle, Dancing with the Stars, Grey's Anatomy, Last Man Standing, The Middle, Modern Family, Nashville, The Neighbors, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Scandal, and Shark Tank.
There's lots of data that ABC execs looks at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here's an updated listing of all of their current primetime shows. »
Look at it from TV Guide Network’s perspective: The channel can’t afford “Modern Family” reruns, much less a scripted approximation. So it has replicated a small part of that hit on the cheap in “Unusually Thicke,” a reality-sitcom hybrid that casts 67-year-old TV personality Alan Thicke as the irascible husband, and his 28-years-younger (and more curvaceous) third wife, Tanya, as his sparring spouse. Filled with celebrity cameos, the show works so far as viewers are willing to play along, although for the target demo, Thicke has probably been relegated to, “Oh, you mean Robin’s dad?” consideration.
As has become status quo in these shows, the program dispenses with formal introductions and dives right in, gradually doling out information about the couple and Thicke’s young son, Carter, who lives with them.
In the premiere, Tanya gripes about Alan’s pack-rat ways, pushing him to get rid of »

Happy Tax Day, dear readers! I hope a lot of you have gotten out and seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier by this point – because it’s totally awesome. And if you’re looking for something scarier at the theater right now, I recommend checking out the new horror movie Oculus. In the meantime, this week’s edition of Trailer Trashin’ steps away from the big summer movies and takes a look at the upcoming indie comedy Chef.
Premise: When Miami-born chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) tries and fails to open a restaurant in Los Angeles, he returns to Miami to fix up a food truck, which he names “El Jefe Cubanos,” and gets reacquainted with his ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara). He plans to drive across the country to take another crack at success in L.A.
My take: As I’ve admitted previously in this column, my biggest blind »

In Chrisley Knows Best, USA Network found its first unscripted breakout. Now the cable network has renewed the half-hour reality series for a 12-episode second season ahead of the April 22 Season 1 finale. Described as a real-life family comedy, it follows Atlanta-based self-made multimillionaire Todd Chrisley, his wife Julie, and their five children who live a seemingly picture-perfect Southern life with everything money can buy. Paired with USA’s off-network family comedy Modern Family, Chrisley Knows Best hit a season high with last Tuesday’s episode, pulling in 823,000 P18-49, 742,000 P25-54 and 1.2 million total viewers P2+. That was up 34% in adults 18-49 and up 10% in total viewers from the previous week.

So it was pretty obvious that we couldn't have been more excited for the return of Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook). This time, he's using his magnificent speed not to win any races, but to save lives.
Dusty is joining a new crew of rescue planes, cars, and a multitude of other vehicles, and together they're determined to prevent the spread of forest fires, no matter how big.
Some of the new characters include including spirited super scooper Dipper (voiced by "Modern Family" mom Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers.
Of course, if he plans on really saving the day, Dusty is going »

Sarah Hyland is packing for Coachella this weekend, and we've got all the details on what she's bringing! E! News caught up with the Modern Family star at Marie Claire's Fresh Faces party at the Soho House in West Hollywood, and Sarah was quick to dish on her Coachella style. For one, she swears by her denim cutoff shorts from American Eagle Outfitters. "They're really comfortable and they have that frayed look, like when the jeans fall apart—that sort of thing," said Sarah. She also revealed one festival trend she will not be sporting this year: Henna tattoos. "I tried to get Henna, but that didn't go very well." So Sarah may not be doing the whole »

With ABC mostly in repeats, CBS won Wednesday by a bigger margin last night thanks to a sweep of the night’s hours by veterans “Survivor,” “Criminal Minds” and “CSI.” It was also a good night for NBC’s “Law & Order: Svu,” which shot up and closed the gap with “Criminal Minds.”
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Survivor” (2.4 rating/8 share in adults 18-49, 9.6 million viewers overall) was up a tick from last week and won head-to-head over Fox’s “American Idol” by 26% in 18-49 (2.4 vs. 1.9) while drawing about 1 million more total viewers. It was followed by “Criminal Minds” (2.3/7 in 18-49, 9.8 million viewers overall), which led its hour but was down 12% (0.3) from last week. And at 10, “CSI” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 9.1 million viewers overall) was down a tick from last week to edge out NBC’s “Chicago Pd” in 18-49.
For the night, CBS won in 18-49, 25-54 (tied with Fox) and total viewers. »

ABC's “Mixology” sure could have used a new “Modern Family” lead-in: the show about the happenings of friends over the course of one night in a bar dropped 31 percent with a rerun paving the way. CBS topped each half hour in an easy Wednesday win. CBS was first in ratings with a 2.1 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in viewers with an average of 9.5 million, according to preliminary numbers. ”Survivor” at 8 p.m. earned 2.4/8 — the highest of the night — and 9.6 million viewers. “Criminal Minds” at 9 received a 2.3/7 and 9.8 million »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, April 9, 2014. Wednesday night held true to recent form with "Survivor" and "Criminal Minds" holding off "American Idol" and leading CBS to slim wins both overall and in the key demographic. There were a few notables outside of the top positions on Wednesday. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" got a big bump for a heavily promoted episode and gave "Chicago Pd" a smaller audience bump. Over on ABC, leaving "Mixology" alone in a sea of repeats resulted in predictable series lows for the freshman comedy. And while "The 100" also hit series lows on The CW, the drama held up reasonably well in its first airing without a new "Arrow" as a lead-in. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.1 rating for Wednesday night, edging out the 2.0 rating for Fox in the key demographic. NBC's 1.5 key demo rating was third, followed by ABC's 1.0 key demo rating. »

I hope you’re watching ABC Family‘s Melissa & Joey, and if you are, you’ve got a treat in store for you tonight as the show welcomes two cool guest stars. It’s a Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Blossom reunion with both Elisa Donovan and David Lascher joining Melissa Joan Hart in fun guest spots.
Lascher will always be Ted from Hey Dude! to many, but hasn’t done a lot of acting post Sabrina.
As I said, the duo are on Melissa & Joey tonight (see »

The season-to-date primetime rankings may tell a different story, but there’s no question Fox is limping to the finish of the 2013-14 television season.
After good audience response to newcomer “Sleepy Hollow” in the fall, Fox’s start to 2014 was rocky. Reality kingpin “American Idol” took a tumble, and the net’s most promising new shows in recent years, comedy (“New Girl”) and drama (“The Following”), have been placing fourth in their timeslots.
Fox is not alone in its struggles — and next month’s return of “24” should give it a boost — but this is the time of year when, during “Idol’s” heyday, Fox typically dominated and opened up some distance on it rivals. And that’s what makes the net’s performance last month especially eye-opening.
During March, a clean four-week period with no major awards shows or dominant sports programming, Fox placed fourth among adults 18-49 all four weeks. »

CBS continued its strong start to spring last week, dominating a frame book-ended by the series finale of “How I Met Your Mother” and the Academy of Country Music Awards.
The Eye also saw strong numbers for “The Big Bang Theory,” veteran crime dramas “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “Criminal Minds” and new comedy “The Millers.” And it debuted comedy “Friends With Better Lives” (behind the “Mother” finale) to decent numbers.
Overall, according to Nielsen estimates for March 31-April 6, CBS ruled in the 18-49 demo with a 2.1 rating/6 share, and was followed by ABC (1.6/5), NBC (1.5/4), Fox (1.2/4) and Univision (1.1/3). This was the sixth consecutive week that Fox has placed fourth or lower.
CBS also won in adults 25-54 with a 33% advantage over runner-up ABC (2.8 vs. 2.1), and drew nearly 60% more total viewers (10.1 million vs. 6.4 million) than the next closest network (ABC).
For CBS, the finale of “How I Met Your Mother” kicked off »
