Posted February 11, 2018 06:13:50While “The Muppet Show” was once the most popular show on ABC, it’s since been out of the syndication game and the Disney-ABC cable network has been picking up some of its old hits.
The Disney Channel is now the biggest player in syndication of the Disney/ABC hit show, and the network is now offering up new series like “The Adventures of Pete and Pete,” “The Disney Files,” “Bart’s World” and “Sesame Street.”
The M.C. Escher-inspired cartoon show has always been part of the ABC family, but with the network picking up the show, ABC is taking a big step into syndication.
ABC also has some new original series, like the upcoming “The Biggest Loser” and the upcoming series “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” which is set in a world where “real” television is the only way people can watch shows.
Other new series on the schedule include “A-list” actor Tim Daly on a new ABC comedy series “The Bachelor” and comedian Adam Scott on the upcoming ABC series “How To Get Away With Murder.”
Meanwhile, “The Middle” and Disney Channel comedy “The Neighbors” are on the way, and Disney XD is also launching a new comedy series called “The Dukes of Hazzard.”
The new series is based on the popular cartoon series “Dukes of Hoax,” which has been revived by ABC for the 2018-19 season.
As part of ABC’s renewed deal with Disney, the network will also be offering up a new series of shows like “Sisters” and new series “Bachelor Nation” on its new streaming service, ABC Original.
