  2. Let once again point out the Channing Dungey-generated disaster at ABC, including two self-inflicted disasters: the renewals of American Crime (one of TV’s biggest flops ever) and Once Upon a Time (past its freshness date for at least three years!!)

    Then again our ABC “genius” picked up Time After Time…

    I’ll ask again why she is still picking shows for ABC…

    Also notable, the disaster that is Making History (another fake-edgy show that anyone except a TV executive would have known not ot order to series…)
