ABC added 12 new series to its programming slate, among them a new Shonda Rhimes legal thriller, How to Get Away with Murder. The show will air on Thursday nights, paired with Rhimes’ returning hits Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. The Tuesday schedule was shaken up, with the additions of the social media-focused Selfie, the romantic comedy Manhattan Love Story and the freshman drama Forever. Also in the way of dramas, the network announced Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will run midseason in place of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Comedy highlights include Black-ish, starring Anthony Anderson, and the musical fairy tale Galavant.

CBS has its bets on Thursday night football and five new dramas to boost its fall schedule. A small handful of new series were added, with 21 shows returning. This includes Two and a Half Men, which is getting a 12th and final season. There’s a new NCIS spin-off, NCIS: New Orleans, and a CSI spin-off, CSI: Cyber. The network moved The Big Bang Theory to lead off the week on Monday nights at 8 p.m., until October 30, when football wraps and the show moves back to its Thursday slot.

FOX has five new dramas, two event series, four comedies and one unscripted show joining its 2014-15 schedule. The Batman prequel Gotham starts things off on Monday nights. The Sunday schedule, once home to the Animation Domination block, has been revamped, with the comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine moving to the 8:30 p.m. time slot. M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines will serve as an event centerpiece for FOX in 2015. The network trimmed back the amount of hours it is dedicating to Idol, which is returning midseason for a 14th cycle.

At NBC, newcomers Bad Judge and A to Z join the Thursday night comedy block, which is being broken up midseason to make way for the return of The Blacklist. The new comedy Marry Me, which comes from Happy Endings creator David Caspe, gets a strong lead-in on Tuesdays from The Voice. The light-hearted drama The Mysteries of Laura, starring Debra Messing, leads off the procedural-themed Wednesday lineup. Event programming includes the Heroes reboot Heroes Reborn and A.D., a sequel to The Bible from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.

The CW moved its breakout hit The Originals to Monday nights, giving a lead-in to the freshman comedy Jane the Virgin. Tuesdays are action heavy, with newcomer The Flash teamed with Supernatural. New for the 2015 lineup are iZombie, based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, and The Messengers, a thriller from Basil Iwanyk (The Expendables film franchise, Clash of the Titans film franchise).
