Why Nathan Fillion's The Rookie should replace the canceled Roseanne on ABC's Tuesday lineup
It was only four years ago that Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so a drama kicking off Tuesday nights wouldn't be unusual, says Matt Webb Mitovich. Plus, he adds, "Nathan Fillion is practically a brand, known for his genre-TV cred but also extremely familiar to ABC audiences from his eight-season run as Castle. While conventional TV-programming wisdom advises against opening a night with a new show, instead letting established series do the heavy lifting, a Fillion-fronted procedural is the next best thing to a sure thing."
