    • I would guess it will air its episodes unless ABC has something waiting in the wings, which I doubt. Seems like only CBS is in a position to be able actually to cancel a show (a la Doubt).

      • Given the lead in it did okay maintaining its audience. ABC should swap it with OUAT and see what happens. OUAT is a dead show walking.

        • Looks like ABC’s entire Sunday plans are dead man walking. They need to go back to the drawing board entirely.

          • And Channing Dungey is still gainfully employed at ABC after engineering this disaster…

        • When there’s no lead-in audience, maintaining it is far from an exploit…

          I agree with you they might as well try swapping since they’re bereft of product, but it won’t do anything.

      • Yeah, I’m pretty sure ABC doesn’t have anything else unless they do something like Beyond the Shark Tank or whatever that was that aired after Wicked City got canned last year.

        • Good point. I guess most networks have some reality programming that they can jam into needed spots. Pretty cheap, for the most part.

          • When they used to make hit shows, they also had tons of replacement shows. They no longer do because 15 years of bad ratings has emptied the kitty…

  1. NBC won all three hours . . . on a Sunday . . . and there was no sports, specials or football involved. When was the LAST time that happened? Job well done NBC.

    Once Upon a Time is doing worse on Sunday with higher HUT levels than Grimm does with lower HUT levels on Friday. Time to call it quits. ABC needs to announce next season will have a reduced order final season and let this show glide off in to the sunset. Time for a full system REBOOT for them on this night.

    FOX animated block is doing awful. They need to consider their options for the future too.

    CBS puts up serviceable older skewing numbers per usual.

    • Correction: CBS won by a whisker.

      Second Correction: No congratulations were earned by anyone for this dreadful night of TV.

  2. What a deserved flop for ABC and Time After Time.

    The original movie had everything current productions lack: Talented, charismatic leads, clever writing, great music and great cinematography (here replaced by poorly lit video).

    Add to that the predicted flop of Once Upon a Time’s return and you have Channing Dungey, and thorough her modern-day Hollywood in a nutshell.

    Will Hollywood learn?

    Of course not. 🙁
