New Series Season Pickups

ABC has given a full season order to new series Speechless and Designated Survivor. 

Speechless is one of the better comedies that arrived this fall and it has definitely paired well with the Wednesday comedy lineup it’s on that features other great series like Black-ish and Modern Family. 

Designated Survivor is Keifer Sutherland’s return to television after his Fox hit 24 ended a couple of years ago. 

Both series have done well so far in the ratings with the second weeks on air of Speechless and Designated Survivor both slipping 10% and 18% respectively from their strong starts. 

The series are the first new series pickups for ABC and the second for all the Broadcast networks. Speechless and Designated Survivor both air on Wednesdays and can be streamed on the ABC app and Hulu.

Season Finales Thursday 5/31/12: Touch, Mary Mary

Today is the last day of season finales from all the fall and mid-season shows. I’m sad that all my shows are done but boy am I happy about a break because these summer shows are not looking good. Here are the season finales happening tonight.

Touch – FOX 8/7c – 2 hour first season finale. As the Aster Corporation increases their interest in Jake, Martin joins forces with Abigail as the stakes of Jake’s custody escalate. When Avram reiterates to Martin that Jake and Amelia, a presumed dead girl with similar characteristics as Jake, are connected, Martin sets out on a passionate mission to uncover the truth. Meanwhile, circumstances intensify when Lucy enters the picture and seemingly unrelated events are tied together. I’m going to have to give this show another chance. I watched the first two episodes and gave up after that. It was good but moved really slow. I love Keifer Sutherland and so I’ll give it another chance.

Mary Mary – WE 9/8c – Season 1 finale. Erica gives birth; Erica and Tina perform “Go Get It” at the Grammys; Tina takes drastic measures to save her marriage. I heard this show is pretty good. I had too much on my dvr to add another show into the mix though.
