All that may very well be window dressing, however. Not that big-ratings hits have stopped coming towards ABC's way: ''Modern Family'' has become a media and ratings darling and ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has made the network a ratings juggernaut on a night many thought was almost as dead as Fridays. ''Grey's Anatomy'' and ''Dancing With the Stars'' continue to be ratings gold as well. However, ABC has lost major footing in trying to capture lightning twice and repeat the success of the ''Modern Family'' and ''LOST'' formulas: the network has become a revolving door of single-camera sitcoms (including ''Series/DontTrustTheBInApartment23'', ''Back in the Game'', ''Super Fun Night'' and ''The Neighbors'') with many of them failing to last past a single season, and attempts to recapture the genre show success of ''LOST'' in particular (including ''Series/{{V 2009}}'', ''Series/NoOrdinaryFamily'', ''Once Upon a Time in Wonderland'' and, to an arguable extent, ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'') particularly ending in failure. In many ways, ABC has found themselves [[http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2014/01/12/bubble-watch-abc-deep-dive-intelligence-chicago-pd-enlisted-more/228587/ back into the position they were when they were bought by Disney]], leading to the natural [[http://www.deadline.com/2014/03/ben-sherwood-to-succeed-anne-sweeney-as-disneyabc-television-group-president/ executive shake-ups]].

In [[TheFifties the 1950s]], ABC was the traditional third-runner in the American UsefulNotes/{{ratings}}, usually finishing a distant last to the other, "older" networks as many markets had no access to an ABC station, much less a third television station in that era. (Even markets that had access to ABC programming usually ended up watching those shows at different times, as their local NBC or Creator/{{CBS}} affiliates would pick up ABC shows and run them at odd or obscure hours, and if your show had low ratings, forget even that.) Starting in [[TheSixties the 1960s]], however, ABC began to make up for this by targeting younger audiences with shows like ''AmericanBandstand'', ''Series/TheModSquad'', ''Series/{{Batman}}'' and ''Series/{{Room 222}}'', as well as traditional DomCom fare like ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' and ''Series/TheBradyBunch''.

The American Broadcasting Company, owned by the [[Creator/{{Disney}} Walt Disney Company]] since 1996, was spawned from Creator/{{NBC}} (where it originated as the "NBC Blue" radio network) as the result of an antitrust ruling in 1943. It changed its name to ABC the following year, and launched its television network in 1948.
