Tuesdays are all new, save “SHIELD”; “Cristela” is sent to Fridays

ABC’s new 2014-15 schedule gives “Black-ish” the prime post-“Modern Family” slot on Wednesdays and “How to Get Away With Murder” the post-“Scandal” position on Thursdays.

Counting “Grey’s Anatomy,” ABC Thursdays this fall will feature a Shonda Rhimes‘ drama trifecta.

On Tuesday, three new programs join “Agents of SHIELD”: “Selfie,” “Manhattan Love Story,” and “Forever.” The new “Cristela” will air on Fridays.

ABC announced the schedule hours before its upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday afternoon.

“Our schedule reflects a judicious mix of boldness and stability,” said ABC entertainment president Paul Lee. “ABC is finishing the season with momentum — we now have building blocks on every night of the week, and we’re using them to launch our new series. This season we set out to develop passion projects from world-class storytellers and showcase the faces and voices of America. Both plans unleashed a wave of creativity and we’re extremely excited about the new slate.”

Fall premiere dates will be announced later.
