Best And Worst Performing TV Shows On ABC This Year

As the year comes to a close, we can take a look back at the shows that did well in the past year.

As the year comes to a close, we can take a look back at the shows that did well in the past year. TVLine has been keeping a track of how shows have been performing over the year and how they rank. They have taken into consideration the average demographic ratings, including Live+7 DVR playback since the networks do take that metric into consideration at renewal/cancellation time. 

They have listed the ABC shows from best to worst performers as well as provided insight on the performance. "ABC desperately needs a big, new hit (or several)," the entertainment news site stated, laying it down straight. "The Wonders Years and Queens are not them. Its top-rated program is fading (and forever bogged down by 'final season' speculation), while the audience for its most-watched drama ranks 16th among all networks."

Here is how the ABC shows ranked:

1. Grey's Anatomy — Season 18
Topping the list is the medical drama that follows the personal and professional lives of the doctors at Seattle's Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. It holds the title for the longest-running scripted primetime show currently airing on ABC.

3. Saturday Night Football
4. The Good Doctor — Season 5
This is another medical drama series about Shaun, a young autistic savant surgical resident doctor who joins a renowned hospital in San Jose, California. He uses his skills to treat patients and prove his abilities to his co-workers.

They have predicted that the mockumentary sitcom television series Abbott Elementary has potential, comparing it to BBC's sitcom, Ghosts. With black-ish coming to an end with its eighth and final season, Abbott Elementary can fill in the spot and do well. "Will the Latino family drama Promised Land be frothy enough to keep the lights on during The Good Doctor's months-long sabbatical? Will the Thursday miniseries Women of the Movement (the story of Emmett Till’s mother) gain any sort of foothold opposite NBC’s Olympics slate? None of these answers are as easy as A-B-C," TVLine concluded.
