Schedules Plus Enhanced: ABC Friday




Schedules Plus is the ultimate almanac to broadcast network primetime scheduling since 2001. It features lineups for three different parts of the year, as well as A18-49+ ratings that more fairly account for historical decline. For more on the tables and charts in Schedules Plus, see this primer.

This post covers ABC Friday. The night is probably most famous for its "TGIF" lineup of family sitcoms. But the A18-49+ era only covers the tail end of this phenomenon, a brief revival from 2003-05, after it went away for a few years just after the turn of the century. For many years after TGIF (and even in the block's last years), ABC was not much of a Friday contender. But the reality series Shark Tank turned ABC's Friday fates, rising from very humble beginnings to become one of the biggest Friday series on record. The lineup has become even more potent with the addition and growth of some TGIF-esque comedies in the 8:00 hour, led by Last Man Standing. See the 2015-16 breakdown.
