  • So what does this mean for Trophy Wife? It’s such a fantastic show, I wish more people watched it!

    • Production recently wrapped on the first season, but IMO, it would take Mixology and Suburgatory bombing and Trophy Wife getting a Wednesday tryout before the latter will have a chance at another season.

      • Good points – although, having Mixology bomb is not completely out of the realm of possibility. That bar for the ABC-9:30pm/Wednesday slot is set pretty high. I’m not sure any show can succeed [live up to expectations and make the numbers] in that slot at this point.

        Agreed, however, that if Suburgatory comes back (and probably will for another short-order in Jan’15), then ABC may not have more than a couple of slots to fill, including that key Wed/9:30, and the 9:30pm Tuesday slot, following Goldbergs (which I believe will be renewed). ABC perhaps will plan to have a comedy or two on the bench for the winter/spring run in 2015. That probably does not bode well for Trophy.

        However, there could be some good news (I think) for Trophy Wife – I personally believe that show would be an absolute perfect fit for the Friday, 8:30pm slot, following Last Man. Perhaps ABC will agree.

        So, if Trophy does get renewed, I think Friday 8:30pm is their best bet. What does this mean for Neighbors? No comment. :o

  • No mention that mention she played the female version of Jake T Austin’s character on Wizards of Waverly Place?

  • I’m thinking she’ll be playing a past friend of Callie’s from her childhood.Plus since i think The Fosters second season begins airing sometime in the Summer the actress will probably tape her scenes in the Spring while waiting to see if ABC renews The Trophy Wife.

  • Trophy Wife is a show I keep saying I’m gonna quit recording on my DVR because I need to cut back on shows and it’s likely gonna be cancelled so why bother BUT then I watch an episode and I realize the show is a real gem and I can’t quit recording it.

  • Bailee will probably play Callie sister on dad side. Maia and Bailee look like real sisters.
