The verdict is still out regarding ABC's middling batch of new shows for the fall — as often happens, many of the network's more tantalizing projects are being held until midseason — but as ABC stepped into the TCA press-tour spotlight on Tuesday, the vibe was unusually positive because of one overarching hot-button issue: diversity. (For more ABC news, go here.)
Mark your calendars, Gladiators: Scandal will kick off its fourth season on Thursday, Sept. 25.
ABC announced its full list of fall premiere dates Tuesday for new and returning shows, including Grey's Anatomy, Nashville and Shonda Rhimes' new series How to Get Away With Murder.
ABC has released trailers for its new fall series, including the comedies Selfie and Manhattan Love Story, as well as Shonda Rhimes' new drama How to Get Away with Murder. Check out the first looks below:
Thursday night is Shonda night on ABC this fall.
The network will move Grey's Anatomy and Scandal to 8/7c and 9/8c, respectively, to make room for Shonda Rhimes' new series How to Get Away with Murder in Scandal's current 10/9c timeslot.

Question: I heard that Fox canceled its freshmen sitcoms Dads, Enlisted and Surviving Jack! While I never watched and didn't care for Dads, I did watch (and loved!) both Enlisted and Surviving Jack. What puzzles me about the cancellations of all of these shows were that their ratings performed with the same numbers that Fox's other sitcoms New Girl, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, yet those shows all got renewed for another season! Why is it that The Powers That Be at Fox would cancel three shows that had the same low (or modest) ratings as the other three shows that got picked up for another year? It doesn't really make sense with me! - Chris
