ABC has set their summer schedule, and there is a lot of fun involved.

When I say fun, I mean fun. Celebrity Family Feud, $100,000 Pyramid, Battle of the Network Stars and The Gong Show will all be lighting up the network, so everyone will feel like a kid again!

The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise will have the dating games covered and Shondaland's Still Star-Crossed (a play on the what-ifs after Romeo and Juliet) as well as the new thriller, Somewhere Between, starring Devon Sawa, also premiere.

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
