As we prepare for a summer full of reruns, there is light at the end of the tunnel. ABC Network just announced their proposed fall lineup at their annual Up Front event, and it’s gonna be good.
The star-studded roster on ABC this fall will include Dylan McDermott “The Practice”, Christina Applegate “Jesse”, Peter Krause “Six Feet Under”, Jerry O’Connell “Crossing Jordan”, Taye Diggs, Donald Sutherland, Angie Harmon, Amy Brenneman, Tim Daly, Chi McBride, Michael Vartan and Joshua Malina. Not bad, eh?
Now don’t forget that the small screen can turn no-names into stars overnight. A year ago the star of “Ugly Betty” was virtually unknown but now America Ferrera is a household name. So don’t write off the non-star-studded shows just yet. NBC is hoping that is the case for them this fall, having introduced a roster that is devoid of big names.
To make room for eight new fall shows, ABC’s cancellations included “What About Brian,” “George Lopez,” “According to Jim,” “The Knights of Prosperity,” “In Case of Emergency,” and “The Nine.”
There is a new Oprah Reality Show where she (big surprise) gives away money. There’s also a new Ashton Kutcher-produced series called “Miss/Guided,” about a guidance counselor who returns to work at her old high school to be unveiled this fall. With all that is going on over at ABC, it looks like cable has competition.
