Thanks to COVID-19, the 2020-21 season was like none other. ABC aired far more unscripted series than usual and ran just 15 scripted series in the regular season (compared to 20 the previous year). The alphabet network launched just four new scripted series. None were hits but the programmers cancelled two and renewed the other two anyway. How will the ABC TV shows perform in the ratings during the 2021-22 season? Stay tuned!
ABC shows (so far): 20/20, Abbott Elementary, America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelorette, Big Sky, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, The Conners, Dancing with the Stars, The Goldbergs, The Good Doctor, The Great Christmas Light Fight, Grey’s Anatomy, Home Economics, A Million Little Things, Queens, The Rookie, Shark Tank, Station 19, Supermarket Sweep, and The Wonder Years.
There’s lots of data that network execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. These 2021-22 season charts will be updated daily, as new ratings data becomes available.
