“Sometimes the best man for the job…. is a woman.” How outdated and cheesy is that tagline? I suppose the retro mentality is fitting for the period-set Marvel’s Agent Carter. ABC unveiled the first teaser for it’s new Marvel offering during the most recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

“When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name.” – ABC Description

The idea of committing to another television program from Marvel is a tad unappealing, especially given how disappointing S.H.I.E.L.D. has been. Thankfully, Agent Carter is only an eight-part miniseries. At least that’s what the alphabet network is saying. However, I’m sure if this is a ratings smash, network execs will figure out a way to bring it back.

Marvel’s Agent Carter premieres in January 2015 with Hayley Atwell reprising her role from Captain America: The First Avenger. The series takes place immediately following the events of that movie. Check out the first teaser trailer below.

The First Canceled Show Of The Season Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

There’s no happily ever after for Manhattan Love Story. It took exceptionally much longer this year to happen, but the axe has finally fallen.

The ABC romantic comedy is the first causality of the new television season. The most recent episode attracted only 2.62 million viewers and a paltry 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-to-49 demographic. I saw the first episode but it didn’t really do anything for me even though I like the leads played by ANTM alum Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman.

ABC was also the first network to cancel a show last year. However, the axe fell on Lucky on October 4. CBS’ Made In Jersey and NBC’s The Playboy Club earned the dishonorable distinction on Oct. 10, 2012 and Oct. 4, 2011 respectively. Typically, networks have been swift and fast getting rid of dead weight but this year they’ve been taking their time. Will more shows follow suit now that the first casualty has occurred?

In other ABC-related news, the alphabet network gave good news to seven of its shows by ordering more episodes. Find out which shows will air less repeats below.

ABC Orders Shark Tank Spinoff

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Fridays are generally considered a television graveyard where networks put their series to die. Not only has Shark Tank survived six seasons, but it’s thrived.

It’s grown from an average of 4.81 million viewers during its first season to 7+ million for its current. The hit show celebrates its milestone 100th episode next month. Wisely, ABC has finally decided to take advantage of its sleeper hit and is investing more in the investment series.

Shark Tank, based on the Japanese Dragon’s Den format, features moneyed investors such as Marc Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, and Barbara Corcoran taking on potential ventures. My favorite part of every episode is when they give updates on some of the businesses they’ve invested in.

Beyond The Tank will give a deeper and detailed look at what happens when a shark partners up with an entrepreneur. Mark Burnett who executive produces Shark Tank will also helm the spinoff. ABC hasn’t revealed when it’ll air the ten episodes. Read a detailed description of the new show below.

Developing television shows based on films from yesteryear is all the rage in Hollywood these days. Especially ones starring Tom Hanks. FOX recently nabbed a comedy event series based on Big from Enlisted exec producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce. Now it’s ABC’s turn to dig through Hanks’ movie vault.

Have any guesses? Sleepless In Seattle? Cast Away? Forrest Gump? Find out which film below.

2014-most-fascinating-people-list

You can’t keep a good bitch down ;) Although she proclaimed last year’s Most Fascinating People special was the last, Barbara Walters returns to ABC this Winter with a 2014 edition.

While I enjoy the special, I thought last year’s supposed final list was fitting. Walters began the annual telecast years ago with Hillary Rodham Clinton as her ‘Most Fascinating Person.’ Fittingly, Barbara chose the former First Lady as her last. I’m sensing that the legendary 85-year-old journalist’s retirement will echo Cher’s numerous farewell tours ;)

ABC has already released some names who’ve made the 2014 list. Find out who made the cut below.

After a five year break from the competitive world of daytime, Tyra Banks is throwing her hat back in the proverbial ring. ABC announced it’s picking up the 40-year-old’s new show titled The F.A.B. For all those who watch ANTM, you know how much Tyra loves her acronyms. This one stands for The Fun and the Beautiful (insert eye roll).

“At 40, Tyra has never been more relevant than she is today,” said Lisa Hackner, executive vp, daytime & syndicated programming, ABC Entertainment Group in a statement, “and her massive and growing digital footprint exemplifies her connection with women of all ages.”

The F.A.B. will premiere in September 2015 anchored on ABC stations in major cities reaching about 23 percent of U.S. television homes. Unlike The Tyra Banks Show for which she won an Emmy, this time around she won’t be going solo. The chatfest involves a group of panelists.

As if the space wasn’t already crowded with The View, The Talk, The Real and Canada’s The Social. Find out below who’ll be sitting alongside the former Victoria’s Secret model.

Robbie Rogers’ Shorts Are Coming To ABC

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!, TV Shows

Back in July came word that a sitcom inspired by Robbie Rogers’ life as MLS’ first openly-gay athlete was being developed by writer Claudia Lonow and producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. The latter duo have produced such gay-friendly entertainment including Hairspray and Smash. Clearly, Rogers’ boyfriend, Arrow producer Greg Berlanti, and his connections had something to do with the deal. The project has officially landed on ABC.

black-ish-renewal

Good news for all you fans of TGIT- ABC’s Thank God It’s Thursday line-up. Shonda Rimes’ latest watercooler show How To Get Away With Murder has received a full season pick-up. Normally that would be 22 episodes, but since it’s billed as a limited series, it’s only going from 13 to 15 episodes. The Viola Davis drama is the highest-rated new series this Fall, averaging a 3.6 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo and delivering more than 14 million viewers in its opening night.

The alphabet network also gave out good news to new comedy black-ish. The rookie sitcom gets an additional nine episodes, upping it to 22. The Anthony Anderson series debuted strongly thanks to its lead-in Modern Family. It debuted to 10.8 million and a 3.3 rating.

Are you happy about both these shows getting more episodes. Personally, I’m enjoying both but really obsessed with HTGAWM. Viola is sensational and I’m loving gay law student Connor (Jack Falahee). How sexy is he?
