Well major shakeup at Disney-ABC as Paul Lee steps down from his role as entertainment president of ABC. And he is replaced by the first African American woman to lead a major network. Head of drama Channing Dungey steps into the role which will be a challenge since ABC dropped to 4th place this week in the ratings.
While credited for the success of last year’s season of diversity with shows such as Fresh Off the Boat and How to Get Away with Murder, Paul Lee brought in some major fails this year with The Muppets, Blood and Oil, and Wicked City majorly failing.
The night before Lee’s firing broke, the CW’s The Flash sped past a double episode dose of Marvel’s Agent Carter and brought CW past both FOX and ABC which was at the bottom of the five networks.
