It’s Day 2 of prediction week at HNTP. Today, we tackle ABC. The alphabet has five new shows on the schedule this fall, although every single one of them will remind you strongly of something you’ve seen before.

Will Flight of the Conchords soar once again… right into a theater near you? Here’s why you should hope the answer is yes!
Lifetime is at it again… spending almost two weeks and $20 making an original “unauthorized” movie about a family sitcom you care about only if you were born in 1984. Is it so bad it’s good? Oh hell no. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the recap.
It’s the season finale of True Detective! No one with a “Y” chromosome gets out alive! Because something about masculinity or something. It’s very deep, really. Just trust us.
