Following CBS and NBC‘s lead, ABC is the latest broadcast-TV network to detail its rollout of springtime season finales (though only for scripted shows) — and it includes a final farewell and one major milestone.
To date, ABC has renewed for the 2022-23 TV season the following scripted shows: Abbott Elementary, The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, The Rookie and Station 19, while only black-ish has been announced as ending.
In the demo, Grey’s Anatomy — which will celebrate Episode 400 with the back half of its two-hour season finale — is currently ABC’s top-rated entertainment program of the 2021-22 season (with Live+7 DVR playback factored in), followed by American Idol and The Bachelor (tie); Promised Land, which got shuttled off to Hulu after five outings, has been the network’s lowest-rated scripted program of the season.
In total viewers, American Idol leads the ABC entertainment pack, followed by The Good Doctor (which enjoys a robust 90% DVR bump) and Grey’s Anatomy, while the freshman sudser Queens places last in that measure among the network’s scripted fare.
