ABC Sets Summer Schedule with Only Two Scripted Shows, Including Mistresses

at . Comments

ABC is going almost all reality for summer 2016.

Other than reality (including a lot of game shows), they're serving up one drama and one comedy with the return of Mistresses and new comedy, Uncle Buck.

Surprisingly absent was Secrets & Lies, which many thought would appear after missing the midseason schedule. Speculation now is it might make it to air during the fall instead.

See what else will be playing on the Alphabet Network during the summer months with the full schedule below.

ABC Quotes

Aren’t we judged by how we treat people? I don’t mean as doctors. I mean as people. Especially those who don’t have the same advantages that we have. We hire Shaun and we give hope to those people with limitations that those limitations are not what they think they are. That they do have a shot! We hire Shaun and we make this hospital better for it. We hire Shaun and we are better people for it.

Dr. Aaron Glassman

Why were you rude to me when we first met then nicer to me the second time we met and now you want to be my friend? Which time was it that you were pretending?

Dr. Shaun Murphy
