ABC certainly needs new shows that are a hit in the ratings. They didn't have much luck last season. Will this year be different or will much of their new crop of TV shows be cancelled as well?
There's lots of data that network execs looks at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. These charts will be updated daily, as new ratings data becomes available.
ABC shows (so far): 20/20, America's Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Black-ish, Castle, Cristela, Dancing with the Stars, Forever, Fresh Off The Boat, Galavant, The Goldbergs, The Great Christmas Light Fight, Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Last Man Standing, Manhattan Love Story, Marvel's Agent Carter, Marvel's Agents of Shield, The Middle, Modern Family, Nashville, Once Upon a Time, Repeat After Me, Resurrection, Revenge, Scandal, Secrets and Lies, »
True Detective and The Hunger Games are the same thing. This claim may seem bold, and of course it is in large part reductive and untrue. When looking at the way the two stories function, however, it becomes easier to see the common ground that exists between them. True Detective is essentially an episodic movie. It tells one story over eight hours, and stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, two bona fide movie stars. The Hunger Games is telling a narrative of roughly the same length, and has a cast that includes House of Cards’ Mahershala Ali and Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer. So, what exactly is the difference?
The Hunger Games series is telling us a single narrative, truly, and its latest installment, Mockingjay—Part 1, told what is really half of a complete story. What it is, in its simplest form, is an episode. While the prior two installments »

The last time we saw “Marvel’s Agents of Shield,” the mysterious object known as the Diviner had transformed Skye (Chloe Bennet) and Raina (Ruth Negga) into something altogether Inhuman through the process of Terrigenesis, killing Agent Trip (B.J. Britt) in the process.
When the show returns from its midseason break on March 3 with an episode aptly titled “Aftershocks,” the team will be reeling from that major loss, while Skye attempts to come to terms with her newfound abilities — which seem to cause devastating earthquakes that she’s unable to control.
Variety was among a number of outlets invited to visit the “Agents of Shield” set and gather intel from the secretive stars of the ABC drama, which returns for a 12-week run of uninterrupted episodes from 9 p.m. tonight. Read on to find out what we learned from the stars and executive producers, and return to Variety after the »

Just as Captain America: The Winter Soldier forever altered the DNA of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in season one, Marvel once again used a major blockbuster to change the core of the ABC show in its second season. But this time, it's the promise of a future movie, 2019's planned release of Inhumans, that is already affecting Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as Skye (Chloe Bennet) went through a transition in the final moments of the fall finale, making her an Inhuman herself. Cue the fan freakout! Skye, real name Daisy Johnson aka Quake, will quickly realizes in tonight's midseason premiere that whatever killed Trip (B.J. Britt) underneath the alien city during the Terrigenesis (aka exposure to the Terrigen Mist) in »
If there's one member of the team who drew the short straw during the first "Avengers" outing, it was definitely Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, the killer sharpshooter who, at the very beginning of the movie, was hypnotized by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and basically spent the rest of the movie as a zombified henchman, going up against the rest of the heroes until the climactic final battle (which, admittedly, was pretty darn cool). If there was one vibe we got from Renner, on the set of the sequel "Avengers: Age of Ultron," it was relief: relief that he was back, that he gets to do more, and that he's no longer a marginalized member of the team.
And that kind of brittle edge, that eagerness to prove himself, fits perfectly with the Hawkeye character, who one can only assume has a larger chip on his shoulder from being left out of »

Robert Downey Jr. revealed last week that there will be a big announcement coming in eight days, which would be Thursday, March 5. Of course, the actor didn't specify what exactly would be announced, but today, ABC let the cat out of the bag, revealing in a new promo that the third trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron will debut this Thursday, during the series premiere of American Crime, which airs at 10 Pm Et. You may recall that the first trailer was set to debut during an October episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., until it leaked online early, and the second trailer debuted during the college football national championship game on Espn.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, »
It's been nearly three months since the last new episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." The fall finale, titled "What They Become," was fittingly a build-up to a grand revelation about Skye's true identity. Or maybe we should say Daisy Johnson's identity, because The Inhumans are coming to "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," which is apparently mighty exciting if you're a Marvel fan. But what if you're not necessarily a devotee of the Marvel comics and you're maybe one of those people who tuned out on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." at some point during its first 32 episodes? Last week, on the secretive "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." set, the show's producers chatted with a group of reporters about what's in store for the second half of the season. Sitting in the shadow of The Bus, with Lola sitting shiny and red just 10 feet away, »

Netflix’s coverage of their forthcoming show, Marvel’s Daredevil, has so far shown us a teaser trailer, new glimpses at Matt Murdock and co. in a gallery of stills and a cheeky motion poster. Up to this point, that blanket of information and visual treats has been void of one key element: Daredevil’s opponent. That is, until today, when Netflix revealed a profile photo and character description of The Kingpin.
Im the 2003 movie, the part was played by Michael Clarke Duncan, and now that juicy villain will be brought to life by Vincent D’Onofrio in the rebooted series. His street name, The Kingpin, connects to his pivotal role in the functioning of Hell’s Kitchen.
Here’s the first character description for the baddie, whose real name doesn’t muster quite as much terror:

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ended the first half of Season 2 with the dramatic reveal of Skye’s true 0-8-4 nature, when her inadvertent exposure to the obelisk’s Terrigen Mist set “Daisy” on a course to fulfill her destiny as an Inhuman.
Alas, in the process Coulson’s team took a big hit, as Skye’s transformation process wound up killing Agent “Trip” Triplett. And that bad news is bound to offset any “joy” of self-discovery for Skye, as Chloe Bennet shares in this Q&A. Also: In the slideshow below, get a character-by-character guide to what’s »

The nearly three month hiatus that Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been on is finally in its final legs. With the imminent premiere in a few days, Marvel and ABC have released the first Agents of Shield Season 2 midseason premiere clip to help trigger your memory a bit of where one story line left off.
When we last saw Hydra agent Sunil Bakshi (Simon Kassianides), he had unsuccessfully tried to take his own life and ended up in Shield custody on a hospital bed instead. Bakshi is a high value prisoner being the number two man of Whitehall, so Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) decides to hand him over to General Talbot (Adrian Pasdar) and the U.S. government so that the Shield and U.S. government uneasy truce remains in effect.
The clip turns a little bizarre when it is revealed that Coulson and Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) are transporting »
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally coming back after a three-month hiatus next week, with the midseason premiere "Aftershocks" debuting Tuesday, March 3 at 9 Pm Et on ABC. While we wait for that episode to air in just a few short days, Marvel has released the official synopsis for the March 17 episode "One Of Us", which teases a team of super villains. Sadly, the identities of these super villains were not explicitly stated, but there may be a few clues hiding within the character names. Take a look at the synopsis and full cast list for "One Of Us" below, then read on for more details.
Cal (Kyle MacLachlan) seeks revenge on Coulson (Clark Gregg) by assembling a team of Super Villains to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. Meanwhile, May (Ming-Na Wen) calls on renowned Dr. Andrew Garner (Blair Underwood), her charismatic ex-husband, with a crisis that threatens to tear the team apart, »
Marvel’s first show in their five-title deal with Netflix – Daredevil – is cranking up the marketing machine this week. Along with a gallery of new stills and a tantalizing motion poster, two of the creative forces behind the rebooted series have now divulged further info on the crime fightin’ lawyer.
Star of the show, Charlie Cox gave Empire Magazine his opinion on the series’ tone and how that may be a surprise to some viewers:
“This is more sinister, and that really suits the character. The hero and the villain… it’s a very blurry line. Let’s say that you didn’t know anything about Daredevil, hopefully you would feel a sense of ambiguity about who’s on the right path here. And, well, you know… we have blood.”
A bloodier, adult approach to the material will be welcomed by fans, after the mediocre 2003 feature film starring Ben Affleck. »

In the pilot, after growing bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals.
The project was written by “Californication’s” Tom Kapinos, who serves as an exec producer alongside Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Len Wiseman. The pilot hails from Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Aggressive Mediocrity and Warner Bros. TV, with Wiseman set to direct. The character originated in Vertigo’s “Sandman” comics created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, before spinning off into his own series written by Mike Carey.
“Lucifer” is the latest in a slew of comic book properties coming to the smallscreen next season, »

Marvel Television Black Site, California. For "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." star Chloe Bennet, the process of integration into the Marvel Universe has been gradual. Bennet's Skye started out as a hacker thorn-in-the-side of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and, if we've being honest, a lot of fans didn't really love her. But then an interesting thing happened and Skye became an increasingly integrated S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and proved herself capable of helping save the world and that, plus a new hairstyle, helped viewers begin to embrace the character, while also wondering about her potential secrets. Well, in the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." fall finale, Marvel enthusiasts finally discovered who Skye truly is and let's just say that the excitement has grown exponentially.
