ABC's 'Black-Ish' Gets 'Modern Family' Lead-In, as 'Murder' Follows 'Scandal'


By Tony Maglio

ABC's new 2014-15 schedule gives "Black-ish" the prime post-"Modern Family" slot on Wednesdays and "How to Get Away With Murder" the post-"Scandal" position on Thursdays.

On Tuesday, three new programs join "Agents of SHIELD": "Selfie," "Manhattan Love Story," and "Forever." The new "Cristela" will air on Fridays.

ABC announced the schedule hours before its upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday afternoon.

"Our schedule reflects a judicious mix of boldness and stability," said ABC entertainment president Paul Lee (pictured). "ABC is finishing the season with momentum — we now have building blocks on every night of the week, and we're using them to launch our new series. This season we set out to develop passion projects from world-class storytellers and showcase the faces and voices of America. Both plans unleashed a wave of creativity and we're extremely excited about the new slate."

Fall premiere dates will be announced later.

"Marvel's Agent Carter" and "Galavant" will serve as bridge programming between the fall finales and winter premieres of "SHIELD" and "Once Upon a Time," respectively.
