ABC announces new TV shows, minus FlashForward for some reason

We previously said ABC was killing our personal fave FlashForward, but now the network has announced the tripe with which it's replacing that underrated awesomeness. Can you believe Matthew Perry is coming back to TV? So long, Agent Benford, Chandler has to be on prime time again.

Perry's show, Mr. Sunshine, is about a stadium owner turning 40 (and presumably being glad he doesn't live in St. Pete), E! reports. He'll be joined in the lineup by Shonda Rhimes' new series Off the Map, which is about -- surprise! -- doctors at a clinic on a tropical island. Both of those won't show up until midseason, though, just like an Elisha Cuthbert break-up comedy called Happy Endings.

Fall series include Dana Delany's medical examiner drama Body of Proof; a sitcom about couples called Better Together; a courtroom procedural by Jerry Bruckheimer titled The Whole Truth; My Generation, which follows high school grads a decade after growing up; Detroit 1-8-7, a dark, docu-style comedy about a homicide detective; and a superpowered family vehicle called No Ordinary Family.

Want a reality show? Of course you do. So there's Secret Millionaire, about rich folks helping in poor communities. Want to help us? Ditch all of these and keep Joseph Fiennes employed.
