Body of Proof: Will ABC’s Changes Work?

Body of Proof season three on ABCRemember when NBC reworked Harry’s Law in an (unsuccessful) attempt to attract better ratings? (As we know, that didn’t work and the show was cancelled.) Well now, ABC is trying something similar with Body of Proof.

Three actors — John Carroll Lynch, Nicholas Bishop and Sonja Sohn — won’t be back for season three. In their place, ABC is casting two new series regulars whose characters will be working for the Philadelphia Homicide Division.

Detective Tommy Sullivan is a former NYPD detective who, 20 years ago, had a romantic relationship with Megan (Dana Delaney). They broke up after she caught him cheating on her. Charming and cocky, Megan will have to figure out if he can now be trusted.

Meanwhile, Detective Adam Schaeffer is a young newbie detective who’s smart and a Phillie native. He’s overconfident and drives his new partner, Sullivan, crazy. He joined the force to rebel against his father, a high-powered defense attorney.

What do you think? Will you miss the old characters? Do you like the sound of the new ones? Any casting ideas? Will this move help Body of Proof’s ratings and get it renewed for a fourth season?

    Seriously!? What the heck? They got rid of some key people. Bud and Sam were a nice mix.. their interaction with the rest of the cast was entertaining. And Peter was her partner, the person who supposedly knew her best of the group…
    The new characters don’t sound that bad but I kinda wish they just added them to the cast instead of using them as replacements…
    We’ll see, I’ll still watch, but I can’t promise to stay a regular…

    here we go again people messing with chemistry. The 3 characters that they axed had a certain panage with each other . The decective & Megan had a feel for each other just like Quincy & lt. Monihan did. I love this program and feel that with the changes it will to be headed for the scrap pile. When will the powers to be leave things alone. There is so much garbage on T.V. today that when we finally get something we like leave it the heck alone.

    Before ABC dropped anyone else, they should have dropped Windell Middlebrooks. He is totally unbelievable as a morgue supervisor, and he plays his role like an Amos and Andy character. While I, too, liked some of the others who got the axe, I have to admit that they weren’t going anywhere.
