ABC Summer Schedule 2016

ABC's Summer Schedule: Mistresses, Uncle Buck and 10 Other Premieres; Secrets and Lies Season 2 MIA

ABC is ramping up for a busy summer, full of Mistresses, Bachelor rejects and homemade robots looking for the fight of their lives. (To be fair, some of those categories might overlap.)

In addition to its returning series, ABC is also launching several new shows this summer, including Uncle Buck, a sitcom based on the 1989 movie; Mike Epps fills John Candy’s shoes as the unlikely guardian of several pint-sized troublemakers.

Noticeably absent from this schedule is Secrets and Lies, which will follow Juliette Lewis’ Detective Andrea Cornell as she gets to the bottom of a new mystery.

    Zzzzzzzzzzz

  2. TW says:

    Interesting about Secrets and Lies. Was that always slated to be a summer show, or was it supposed to be a mid-season show like last year? I was wondering why it hasn’t shown up yet.

  3. nickspace says:

    What is going on with Secrets & Lies?! I wish ABC would just announce something, even if it’s a mind-change cancellation.

  4. GuessWhat says:

    I rather watch repeats than any of this dreck.

  5. Peter Santorum says:

    Not one good show not even worth dvr.

  6. N says:

    Secrets & Lies, please

  7. Did they name it Uncle Buck just to piss people off?

  8. Wesley Sisco says:

    I’m a big game show fan so I’m looking forward to Celebrity Family Feud, $100,000 Pyramid & To Tell The Truth.

  9. Lysh says:

    Summer is my catch-up on Netflix and books and living for SDCC coverage season. I kind can’t wait. No summer show has really ever caught my interest.

  10. texmike says:

    It looks like ABC will be closed for the summer. With nothing but dreck on over the summer you would think that they could afford to pay Stana.

  11. John Davis says:

    The only one I care is Secrets & Lies.

  12. ToyCannon says:

    While I really enjoyed season one of “Secrets & Lies”, I lost interest in watching season two after they killed off Ryan Phillippe’s character at the end of the season finale. Even though his character wasn’t going to be in season two, killing off them main character was unforgivable.

  13. Nancy says:

    Since Rookie Blue isn’t on this year I couldn’t care less about their schedule.

  14. Notably left off the schedule are Celebrity Wife Swap (which was rumored to be cancelled), Extreme Weight Loss and the other medical shows they aired the past summers

  15. Netflix & Amazon here I come.

  16. Joe R says:

    Where’s the fun stuff like “Whodunnit?,” “The Glass House” and “The Quest”? This summer slate is ABC’s worst in recent memory. At least last year had the interesting burnoff “The Astronaut Wife’s Club.”

  18. Kelly says:
