ABC plans an all-new Tuesday schedule built around Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a top prospect for fall that's one of a large crop of eight new series premiering on the third-place network. Also due are a new drama on Sunday, a Once Upon a Time spinoff on Thursday and two new comedies surrounding Modern Family.
Among returning shows, only alien sitcom The Neighbors is moving; it will be paired with Tim Allen's Last Man Standing on Fridays. "We're leaving intact our top shows," says ABC Entertainment chief Paul Lee, who calls the new schedule "a combination of stability and out-and-out ambition." And it also spells the end of Dancing With the Stars' results show, Amid sagging ratings, both weekly Dancing episodes will be combined into a single two-hour Monday installment that features both performances and results.
S.H.I.E.L.D., from Joss Whedon (The Avengers) stars Clark Gregg, reprising his Avengers role as Agent Phil Coulson, who gathers a group of superheroes. It marks the first ABC show from Marvel since parent Disney acquired the comics giant.
