Entirely scripted Slate MIA as writers’ strike jeopardizes new TV season
ABC on Tuesday became the third broadcast network (after CBS and NBC) to unveil its schedule for the Fall TV season — and it’s an overwhelming experience.
In what can only be seen as an ominous sign about the potential duration of the current writers’ strike, the network’s fall schedule is whole of unwritten fare (except a few Abbot Elementary School repeat on Wednesday).

Included in the reality-infused line-up is the debut of the long-pregnant Golden bacheloran AARP-focused spin-off of the dating franchise.
ABC declined to comment on its new strike-proof schedule, but an Alphabet insider says the network is “prepared” for the possibility of an extended work stoppage. The plan, as it stands, is for most, if not all, of ABC’s script offerings to launch mid-season. As a result, the network will “probably” cut episodes of certain shows (translation: Don’t expect traditional 22-episode seasons of favorites Gray’s Anatomy, Station 19 And The rookie).
