We talked about the 2013 ABC Fall TV Schedule starting with Sunday and moving through to Saturday and gave premiere dates. Having screened most of ABC’s new shows for fall, our discussion tended to focus on them. But, we also talked about what we hope to see from some of their returning shows.

  1. Listening to the DVR conversation, I’m feeling a bit guilty–I have a 4-tuner TiVo in the family room, another 4-tuner TiVo in the bedroom, a 2-tuner TiVo in the guest room (plus another 2-tuner TiVo that’s not even hooked up since I don’t have another TV to connect it to–it was replaced by the 4-tuner in the bedroom). And now TiVo just released a 6-tuner device and I really want one! However, I have no plans to buy one–I wouldn’t have even purchased the second 4-tuner TiVo, but I won it from a TiVo Facebook Superbowl contest! 🙂

    I really have no excuse if I miss something!

  2. I actually liked Lucky 7–while it also reminded me of Windfall, I guess it is a remake of a UK show (maybe that was a remake of Windfall?). I don’t really remember any awful accents–and Killer Women was WAY worse–I can’t stand Tricia Helfer!

    I totally agree with Amrie–The Middle didn’t need to get better–it was always good!

    And Super Fun Night could be way more Super Fun if she just used her normal accent!
