“The Catch” joins ABC’s TGIT lineup Thursday night, carrying the Shondaland banner (if not the fully hands-on involvement of Shonda Rhimes herself) and, on the surface at least, looking like it will fit right in with “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”

Will it? The show’s timing isn’t especially good from a ratings standpoint. “Scandal” has declined since its February return, and the show it’s replacing, “How to Get Away with Murder,” also suffered a dropoff following its winter hiatus.

Vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comments on how you think “The Catch” will do for ABC. Do Mireille Enos and Peter Krause have what it takes to carry the show to success?
