  • ABC's Fall schedule: 'Mars', Ashton Kutcher & 'Scrubs'

    ABC bets on 'Mars'

    Network also picks up Kutcher's 'Opportunity'

    ABC's betting there's "Life on Mars."

    The quirky sci-fi thriller, based on the hit BBC series of the same name, is expected to be one of the few new series to make it on the Alphabet's fall sked.

    Also new on the docket: The Ashton Kutcher-produced reality skein "Opportunity Knocks," which has scored a 13-episode order from the Alphabet net.

    "Opportunity Knocks" comes from Katalyst and 3 Ball Prods. Show, hosted by JD Roth, revolves around contestants who wind up answering trivia questions for prizes at their own home.

    ABC also already gave a 13-episode commitment to the animated series "The Goode Family," which will be ready for air in January.

    Show, from Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, revolves around a family with good intentions -- but not-so-good execution in those intentions. MRC is behind the show.

    By Sunday, 20th Century Fox TV was shopping animated contender "The Pitts" as a potential companion piece to "Goode Family," but there was no indication that such a pact would transpire.

    Meanwhile, among bubble shows, "Eli Stone" appeared destined to be this year's "October Road" -- the midseason entry that didn't make a splash in the ratings, but had enough buzz and supporters inside the net to score a second season.

    Also in the hunt for a renewal: The single-cam entry "Miss/Guided," starring critical fave Judy Greer. Show could make a strong companion to either "Samantha Who?" or "Scrubs," two more single-cam entries.

    That's right -- "Scrubs." ABC still won't confirm that the long-running medical comedy is making its way to the Alphabet, but the move from NBC reps one of the worst-kept secrets in town.

    Why do they insist on calling it "The Alphabet".

    Lame ...

    Glad Eli Stone will be back though.

      This has been unfortunately going on for decades. CBS - the eye, and of course, NBC - the peacock...
