Check Out ABC’s Awesome Fall 2019 Line-Up
Get ready to FALL into a wonderful season of entertainment on ABC TV! There are so many exciting programs coming your way in the weeks and months ahead, that we here at MickeyBlog thought we’d share with you a quick look at some of the highlights! So let’s get started!
Dancing With the Stars
The fun began earlier this week when the newest season of Dancing with the Stars (Mondays at 8/7 c) which boasts a diverse group of actors, athletes, hosts, musicians and even a politician stepping out of their comfort zones all competing for the coveted Mirrorball trophy. This year’s celebrity contestants are as follows:
Lauren Alaina, Ally Brooke, Hannah Brown, Karamo Brown, Kate Flannery, Ray Lewis, Kel Mitchell, Lamar Odom, Sean Spicer, James Van Der Beek, and Mary Wilson; after supermodel Christie Brinkley suffered injuries while rehearsing for the premiere, her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, was tapped to replace her for the remainder of the season. Returning professional dancers include Brandon Armstrong, Lindsay Arnold, Alan Bersten, Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Gleb Savchenko and Emma Slater. Daniella Karagach and Pasha Pashkov joined as new professional dancers. Co-hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron are back, as are judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
Episodes are also available Tuesdays on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.
This NEW thriller follows police chief Jo Evans (Allison Tolman), who takes in an unaccompanied minor (Alexa Swinton) she finds near the site of a mysterious accident. The young girl has zero memory of what happened! As a result, Jo is drawn into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the girl’s identity is at the center of it all. Emergence also stars Ashley Aufderheide as Mia Evans, Robert Bailey Jr. as Chris Minetto, Zabryna Guevara as Abby Frasier and Owain Yeoman as Benny Gallagher, with Clancy Brown as Ed Sawyer and Donald Faison as Alex Evans.
One of the new shows that has us the most excited is this spinoff comedy black-ish. The series traces the origins of Johnson family matriarch Rainbow (played by executive producer Tracee Ellis Ross in black-ish and Arica Himmel in mixed-ish) and her experiences growing up in a mixed-race family in the 1980s. “ The series begins when the Johnsons relocate to the suburbs following a raid on the hippie commune they call home. Now, Rainbow and her siblings (Mykal-Michelle Harris, Ethan William Childress) must learn to adjust to a school in which they’re seen as neither black nor white.
Another newcomer is Stumptown based on the graphic novel series of the same name. The program centers on Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders), a strong, sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, a gambling problem and a brother who’s her dependent. She’s a skilled PI, but her brash style puts her in the firing line of some of the worst criminals—not to mention at odds with local police officers. The Stumptown cast also includes Jake Johnson as Grey McConnell, Tantoo Cardinal as Sue Lynn Blackbird, Cole Sibus as Ansel Parios and Adrian Martinez as Tookie, with Camryn Manheim as Lieutenant Cosgrove and Michael Ealy as Detective Miles Hoffman.
Kids Say the Darndest Things
Tiffany Haddish hosts and executive produces this new version of the classic variety show. The program boasts a re-imagined formated that uses a mix of in-studio segments and taped pieces from across the country and is set in front of a live studio audience. Each episode will highlight kids’ comedic perspectives in laugh-out-loud segments. Recurring bits include “Kids Rule,” in which kids explain the guidelines for everything from sportsmanship to dating; “Love Talk,” in which Tiffany seeks romantic advice; “I’ll Be Right Back,” a hidden-camera segment in which Tiffany asks kids to watch her desk when she leaves the office; “Granny Tiff,” in which Tiffany, disguised as an older woman, asks for tech advice; and more.
