Jimmy Kimmel Marvels At ABC's Failure With 'Inhumans'

ABC and other networks are grappling with sweeping changes in the TV industry, including the loss of TV-show hit makers to Netflix.

"I think that they're going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family", Dungey said on a conference call Tuesday, according to Variety.

More ratings help came from "American Idol", which will return next year for a second season on ABC. The cast includes Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman, Alicia Goranson, Sarah Chalke, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, and Jayden Rey. I can honestly say on behalf of everyone here at ABC who worked with her for so long, we hope she rots in hell... In the very first few scenes of the first episode, it was revealed that Roseanne Conner was a Trump supporter, and that she'd become estranged from her sister, Jackie, over their politics, having not spoken to each other for a year (they patched things up).

But it was amusing to watch the rap star and host of the TBS game show "The Joker's Wild" get a little lost in a cloud of it. Snoop briefly performed some of his best-known songs before an audience of advertisers attending the Turner Networks' schedule presentation at Madison Square Garden's theater.

For Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger, one of the prime motivations to buy the Fox assets is to quickly bulk up ABC's production capabilities at a time when owning TV shows is important.

SUNDAY: 7 p.m., "America's Funniest Home Videos;" 8 p.m., "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors;" 9 p.m., "Shark Tank;" 10 p.m., "Alec Baldwin Show." .

"That was too political for them and then they've got Roseanne spewing her love of Donald Trump on the show, and the real Roseanne spewing conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton and Pizzagate", the anonymous writer told BuzzFeed Thursday, May 10.

She collected people's cans to donate money to her church, so she roamed the neighborhood nearly every day. Wednesday's dog attack is still under investigation and no charges for that incident have been filed.


"The show certainly did touch on some of that in the first episode in a very amusing way, to look at the different political views between Roseanne and Jackie", Dungey explained.

She reiterated that the network tries to be "as diverse and inclusive as possible" across all metrics, from race and gender to religion and economics.

The junior edition will air for one hour on Sundays, followed by new episodes of Shark Tank.

Despite its ratings gains, ABC has a ways to go.

Dungey also said she was a "a little bit surprised" when people were offended by the Roseanne show discussing two shows with minority-centered comedies, Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat. ABC has some good news for fans of the current all-athletes edition of the show.

This was the first time Freeform was incorporated into ABC's upfront presentation.

"We have a new slogan this year ABC".
