ABC just hooked a big fish for Shark Tank Season 7. TVLine.com reports a huge sitcom star is set to appear as a guest Shark for the upcoming season.

This isn’t the first time the ABC reality series has enlisted special guest stars to join the panel of investors. Jeff Foxworthy, John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell) and Nick Woodman (GoPro) have all previously appeared on the show. Both Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner parlayed their guest stints into permanent full-time gigs. Find out who’s stopping by next.

When Secrets and Lies returns for its sophomore season, Juliette Lewis will be the sole actor to reprise her role. Ryan Phillippe signed on for only one season. In addition, if you ventured to ABC.com after the season finale, it appeared (SPOILER ALERT) that his character died in prison.

It’s no easy feat to follow in Phillippe’s footsteps, but producers have found themselves an equally attractive male lead. Find out who below.

Fans of Grey’s Anatomy are still reeling from the shocking death of Derek “Dr. McDreamy” Shepherd. While no one can truly replace him in their eyes, it appears producers have found themselves a Patrick Dempsey doppelgänger.

Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has chosen Martin Henderson as Seattle Grace’s newest doctor. This isn’t the first time the 40-year-old actor has starred in a Shondaland series. He appeared in the short-lived ABC drama, Off the Map.

Henderson’s other notable credits include feature films The Ring, Smokin’ Aces and the upcoming Everest co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal. He also played the Ryan Phillippe role in the Aussie Secret and Lies.

Do you think Martin is as dreamy as Patrick? Is there a resemblance? Will fans warm up to another man bedding Ellen Pompeo? Weigh in below.

Clearly, ABC loved the pilot for Of Kings and Prophets. It received a plum Sunday night slot on the alphabet network’s schedule. With regards to further episodes though, it’s not feeling that bullish.

The epic Biblical saga has been pulled from ABC’s Fall schedule. Reportedly, the show will undergo some recasting and it will debut at a later date. Taking over the coveted spot is Quantico. Ironically, the show will also see change as well- Dougray Scott who appeared in that pilot will be recast.

The FBI drama was originally slated to air on Tuesday. ABC hasn’t had great luck in the 10pm slot on Tuesdays for years, so this bodes well for Quantico. The series follows a group of recruits at the FBI training base. The big twist is one of them becomes a suspect for masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11. Check out both trailers below.

If you love Portia de Rossi on Scandal, it’s your lucky day. Her character, Elizabeth “Lizzie Bear” North won’t be hibernating anytime soon. The 42-year-old actress has been promoted to series regular for the ABC drama’s fifth season. She revealed the news in an interview with TVLine.com.

“I’ve been here for the entire season, so, honestly, I already feel like I’m part of the family. It would’ve been very sad for me not to come back. And to come back with a guarantee of a few more episodes than [I was in this season] is really fantastic. It’s just a great ensemble cast. And we’re all really excited about the show — still. I came on as a fan, but all the actors are just as excited as when they first started the show. And I love Shonda Rhimes. I love Shonda Rhimes.” Portia tells TVLine.com

abc-2015-upfronts

During its upfronts presentation, ABC revealed they have ten new programs on deck- six dramas and four comedies. The ones that immediately caught my eye were Quantico, a thriller about a group of FBI recruits which includes a suspected terrorist mastermind, the Shonda Rhimes con drama, The Catch and the comedy The Real O’Neals about a gay boy and his religious Irish family. Sadly though, the latter two won’t premiere until midseason. The alphabet network is only premiering half of their new offerings in the Fall.

In terms of schedule, ABC is keeping things relatively status quo. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights remain mostly the same. The only notable slot change is Secret & Lies. It moves to Wednesday nights, sharing the 10pm slot with Nashville. Speaking of Secret & Lies, it was announced that only Juliette Lewis is set to return for the sophomore season.

ABC’s other new programs include a Muppets revival, Uncle Buck reboot and two former Gossip Girl alums headlining their own shows. Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick star in OIL and Wicked City respectively. The latter seems the more intriguing of the two. Check out all the trailers and show descriptions below.

bachelorette-season-11-guys-photos

The Bachelorette is just around the corner which means it’s time for ABC to roll out the guys vying for the next Bachelor slot ;) Each season is as much about finding love as it is about securing the highly-sought after gig. Hell, I’d switch to ‘Plan B’ too, as soon as I realized I had no shot at sweeping the Bachelorette off her feet.

The Season 11 guys have more power than their predecessors. During the first night, they get to pick which of Chris Soules’ castoffs will be the lucky lady. If you’ve read the spoilers, you already know if either Kaitlyn Bristowe or Britt Nilsson got the gig. Personally, I’m happy with their choice.

Based purely on their official photos, I picked the five guys I found hottest. With that being said, ABC should really reconsider hiring a new photographer. Nearly all of them, look much better in the group photo above than their individual pics. Maybe, it’s because of the tacky backdrop. Whatever it is though, it needs to be fixed. Future contestants deserve better. And might I suggest, shirtless photos at that.

Check out my top picks below solely chosen on looks alone. Be sure to share which ones are your favorites as well. The Bachelorette premieres on May 18 on ABC.

For the most part, the broadcast networks have revealed the fates of their shows heading into next week’s exciting upfronts week. I’m sure the remaining shows in limbo will learn the verdict this weekend.
