The first, Revenge, is a melodrama starring TV vet Emily VanCamp loosely based on Alexander Dumas’ The Count of Montecristo — just with a little Gossip Girl and Hamptons flavor thrown in. We loved the series premiere and its straight-forward approach to the late-night network melodrama and the ratings continue to hold steady, with a little boost in recent weeks. It looks like we may find the answers to all our questions afterall now that ABC has ordered a full season from the brand new show. Revenge airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Second, we have Suburgatory. It’s a fairly predictable family-style single-camera sitcom, but it’s enjoyable and it fits right along with it’s much funnier followup, Modern Family. Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy star as a father and daughter who move to the suburbs from New York city only to learn the truth that the ‘burbs are kind of terrifying. Suburgatory airs Wednesday nights at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Lastly, we have Happy Endings, and if you saw our public love letter to the series, you’d know it’s pretty great. Or maybe you just watched it and figured that out yourself. The ensemble show miraculously scored a shot at Season Two in the face of low ratings last year and while ABC isn’t giving it a full season, they’re ordering more scripts thanks to an increase in viewership, which isn’t the worst thing that could happen. Happy Endings airs Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
