ABC Boss on Canceling Trophy Wife, Diversity, and the End of Grey's Anatomy

Trophy Wife

ABC President Paul Lee is very excited about the network's new batch of comedies, but at Tuesday's Television Critics Association fall previews, he spent some time defending a comedy he had to cancel last year.

See all the news from ABC's TCA day

Lee fielded several questions about the cancellation of Trophy Wifea low-rated comedy that some critics believed ABC never gave a chance to succeed by putting it in the network's successful Wednesday night comedy block. "We were always disappointed... not to get a pulse for it," Lee said... read more

Ask Matt: Finales (Castle, Mentalist), Penny Dreadful, Cancellation Fallout

Question: Last week, you wrote about how producers "often — too often, to be honest — try to end their seasons with a bang ... in hopes of stimulating interest for when they return several months later." I understand the reasoning, and it definitely worked for me with Person of Interest — it was game-changing and left me very curious to see how it goes, but satisfying. However I had the opposite reaction to Castle, which looked to be heading for a good place to pause with a minor game-changer (Mr. & Mrs. Castle), even got some nice wedding emotion going, and then threw in a ridiculous "dun-dun-dun" moment which had zero emotional impact as no one believes Castle could be dead. Most of these cliffhangers now seem to me like cheap tricks, a shyster trying to "buy" your viewing next fall, while moving the story to a new level seems a legitimate way of keeping interest and far more likely to have a good payoff in terms of the story next year. Anyway, it led me to wonder are there any "cliffhangers" of the past that you remember with pleasure and/or satisfaction, or is it only the game-changers that stand out in your mind? As always, thanks for an interesting column. — Elle

Question: I am sure many people were disappointed by the cancellation announcements this year. I was especially sad to see Trophy Wife taken too soon. But it left me wondering why ABC didn't try a different time slot, and then I realized overall it seemed as though none of the networks moved shows around the schedule like they have done in the past. Do you think this strategy helps or hurts shows struggling to find an audience? — Rob

Will Amelia stick around next season on Grey's Anatomy— Tara 
There's no official word on what the cast will look like next year, but it's safe to say Amelia will find it more difficult to leave Seattle this time around. "She's really realizing the value of having her family around," Caterina Scorsone tells me. "She's definitely thinking about the pros and cons of living so far away in Los Angeles." One major pro? Having a new sister! Look for Amelia and Meredith to do some major bonding while Derek is out of town.
