After a dismal offering at NBC and an ambitious presentation from Fox, upfront week moves on to ABC this afternoon. ABC, which isn't in great shape, is also wildly rebooting its lineup. (You can see an interactive now-and-then schedule below.) In a conference call earlier today, ABC's entertainment president Paul Lee explained that "it doesn't get more agressive" than the network's new Tuesday lineup, which is anchored by an already heavily promo-ed Marvel collaboration, and ABC's revamped Thursday night, which starts with the Once Upon a Time spinoff and is apparently all about "empowered women." Meanwhile, Dancing with the Stars has been scaled back to one night a week. Stay tuned below for details and clips from new shows — the presentation starts just after 4 p.m. Eastern.
