    If Back in the Game and/or Super Fun Night falls this week, The Goldbergs could possibly move to Wednesdays.

    Ha Ha

    Co- Viewed is a new one.

    ABC is the most creative with positive spins.

    ABC: the network that rich people like to watch with their friends!

    Damn… I knew I should have shut the TV off after S.H.I.E.L.D. I left it on while taking out the trash. Then The Goldbergs did well!

  • Jlopie1

    Well, that is certainly an interesting new way to entice viewers to their network offerings! Unfortunately it’s already one big epic fail so why bother?

  • Michael1

    The only show I co-view with my child is “Dancing with the Stars”, but I guess “The Goldbergs” is a good show to watch for parents who grew up in the 1980’s and their teen/tween aged children. Now all that’s left is to convince the advertisers.

    Shut up ABC, you stupid!Claim what now?

  • PurpleDrazi


    Oh ABC PR department…don’t ever change. (we could all use the good laughs!)

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    ABC apparently has co-dependency issues.

  • Harry

    Well i can understand the need to do this for promoting their series , but when in the past u said those good things about shows u canceled dont expect anyone to take u seriously.

    Are you all illiterate and totally lacking in reading comprehension? These numbers aren’t from ABC and ABC isn’t writing the article. “Based on Nielsen’s Live + Same Day Non-Sports Ratings for Premiere Week.” And if NBC or CBS had these numbers you don’t think they wouldn’t be tooting their horns? If you are going to haters at least get your hateful facts right.
