Realistically? For ABC, in a slot that SHIELD could reasonably hold its own, if not rule:

Tues. 9 PM
Wed. 8 PM

That's pretty much it.

ABC could use some replacements for Sunday night, but against The Walking Dead on AMC and Fox's Animation Domination (Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, American Dad), not to mention NBC football in season, it's a losing battle. Also, with the unfortunate failure of The Last Resort, there's a slot opening for 8 PM Thursdays, but that's up against powerful sitcoms on CBS (Big Bang Theory, 2 1/2 Men) and NBC (30 Rock, Community, Parks & Rec).

So I'd green-flag Tues. 9 PM and Wed. 8 PM; yellow-flag Sun. 8-9 PM and Thurs. 8 PM; and any other slot would be instant death, or a spot already being squatted on by ABC's top ratings-getters.
