ABC Calls It Quits On Four Shows

After picking up six new dramas and three comedies — and as it’s poised to renew the bulk of its returning fare and freshman breakouts — ABC lowered the ax on rookie drama Forever, comedy Cristela, sophomore entry Resurrection as well as returning alternative series The Taste.


‘Resurrection,’ ABC Top Sunday Night

ABC’s new drama Resurrection slipped double digits versus last week’s premiere, but it was still easily Sunday night’s top program among viewers 18-49 and led the network to a comfortable first-place finish for the night in the demo.

Resurrection posted a 3.0 adults 18-49 rating in its 9 p.m. timeslot, according to Nielsen overnights, off 17 percent from a 3.6 for last week’s series premiere.
