    HAHAHA, ABC is so funny.

    Trophy Wife is dead & Goldbergs is sinking like a stone both in ratings and quality. ABC should cancel both.

    The irony here is ABC has a show in Goldbergs to actually get an audience. It should move to Wed where it can grow around more established shows. Maybe once Mixology tanks they’ll give it a try there then.

    Now this is some tremendous spin. Best do it while they still can, I guess.
