2017 Upfronts: ABC Releases 2017-18 Schedule

(press release) ABC continues its commitment to distinctive storytelling with the announcement of its 2017-18 slate of programming. Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment, will unveil the network’s new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall in New York City.

“I’m very proud of this year’s slate of series at ABC. We’ve focused on some of the universal themes that unite us – exciting stories, relevant dramas, and of course, lots of laughs. Our goal is to focus on the unique points of view of our show creators, but make shows that have broad appeal,” said Dungey.

Ranking No. 1 for the 2016-17 season in Nielsen’s non-sports Adult 18-49 averages (tie), ABC claimed a network-leading 9 of the Top 20 entertainment series on broadcast TV, delivering 5 of the Top 10: “Grey’s Anatomy” (3.3 rating) – No. 4, “The Bachelor” (3.1 rating) – No. 5, “Designated Survivor” (2.9 rating) and “Modern Family” (2.9 rating) tie at No. 7, “How to Get Away with Murder” (2.6 rating) – No. 10, “Scandal” (2.4 rating) – No. 13, while “The Goldbergs” (2.1 rating), “DWTS” (2.1 rating) and “black-ish” (2.1 rating) tie at No. 19. In addition, the Network delivered 6 of the Top 10 comedies for the season and 3 of the Top 5 dramas. ABC once again dominated among advertiser-coveted upscale viewers with 9 of the season’s Top 15 highest-rated broadcast entertainment series among Adults 18-49 in Homes earning $100k+ Annual Income.

Fall premiere dates will be announced at a later time. Please note that shows picked up but not listed on the schedule below will debut later in the 2017-18 season.
