ABC Unveils Their 2013-2014 Primetime Schedule, Pitting "S.H.I.E.L.D." Against (Gulp) "NCIS"
Once you get past the absence of "Happy Endings" on their schedule, and that sucker punch, looking over at ABC's fall schedule, the most striking scheduling addition is "S.H.I.E.L.D." on Tuesday nights at 8, which means that ABC is directly taking on the number one scripted show on television, "NCIS." You know what? I think ABC and the power of Marvel is going to win that showdown, and probably lay to waste every other competitor in that hour. Otherwise, the entire Tuesday night schedule is new, as the "The Goldbergs" and "Trophy Wife" (more on those when the trailers arrive) take on "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" in what was a bad hour for ABC and NBC last season (all four sitcoms going up against "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" last season were cancelled). However, with the "SHIELD" lead-in, those two new sitcoms -- regardless of quality -- should fare well.
The "Once Upon a Time" spin-off, "Wonderland" will debut on Thursdays at 8 p.m., an hour that's been rough on ABC in previous seasons ("The Last Resort," "Charlie's Angels") despite the fact that ABC owns the 10:00 hour now with "Scandal." Note also that Rebel Wilson's new sitcom, "Super Fun Night" got the most prized sitcom time slot on network television, right after "Modern Family." That trailer should be along soon, too.
Here's the full schedule. Oh, and glory be! There's only one night of "Dancing with Stars" now, as the results show is being incorporated into the live show.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
