ABC's Ratings Report Card: Best and Worst Shows at Midseason

Midseason hiatus is here, and ABC has received its ratings report card.

The fall TV season was a winner for the network, which saw the addition of The Good Doctor to its 9 p.m. Monday time slot. The show, which follows the story of Shaun Murphy, a young autistic surgeon who has savant syndrome, was not only dubbed fall’s no. 1 new drama, but it also made it to the top of ABC’s ratings report, TVLine reports.

Modern Family slipped from the no. 1 spot, being replaced by Grey’s Anatomy as the network’s no. 1 returning show. Meanwhile, ABC’s other TGIF show How to get Away With Murder slid to the number 10 spot, and Season 2 of Designated Survivor didn’t have a stellar fall season, either.
