ABC rockin it online

16May07

I’ve got to hand it ABC. They’re really taking a lead role in utilizing the Internet to reach out to current and potential viewers. They released a great high resolution online TV show player that people were raving about. They just announced that you can view clips of their upcoming pilots on their website (not that they’re any good), and that they will be streaming HD content.

Also, here’s their list of upcoming TV schedule. Based on the current TV show turnover rate I’m making a new rule. I won’t watch a new show until it makes it into its second season. I’ve been burned too many times lately with Vanished, Drive, Andy Barker, etc.

Returning: Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, October Road, Notes from the Underbelly, Men In Trees, Brothers & Sisters, Wife Swap, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, Lost, Supernanny, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Boston Legal, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, 20/20, Primetime (specials and special series)

Out: The Nine, Six Degrees, The Great American Dream Vote, Show Me The Money, Day Break, In Case of Emergency, The Knights of Prosperity, What About Brian, George Lopez, According to Jim (maybe… finally!)

New: Big Shots, Carpoolers, Cashmere Mafia, Eli Stone, Dirty Sexy Money, Cavemen, Miss/Guided, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Sam I Am, Women’s Murder Club, Oprah’s Big Give

Moving: Men In Trees moves from Thursdays at 10 to Fridays at 8. Notes from the Underbelly and October Road (along with Cashmere Mafia) will premiere when Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor end their seasons. Lost will begin airing in February and show no repeats, in a Wednesday time slot that’s still to be determined.
