List of TV Shows By Their Major Production Company

Production companies are appearing to play larger roles recently in a show's fate, especially if the show is on ABC, CBS, or The CW. This is reportedly a tactic that the networks are using to optimize the number of in-house produced shows that make it to syndication, meaning more long-term money for the studios in an age of decreasing live television viewership.

While most shows are produced by more than one production company, the shows will be organized only by their MAJOR production company.

Note: Only some midseason series have made the list below.

ABC Studios

All shows on this list are broadcast by ABC unless otherwise noted.

  • America's Funniest Home Videos
  • Jimmy Kimmel Live
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Criminal Minds (co-production with CBS)
  • Castle
  • Once Upon A Time
  • Scandal
  • Nashville
  • Mistresses
  • Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
  • Blackish
  • How to get Away with Murder
  • Galavant
  • Marvel's Agent Carter
  • Secrets & Lies
  • American Crime
  • The Whispers
  • The Astronaut Wives Club
  • The Muppets
  • Code Black (co-production with CBS)
  • Quantico
  • Dr Ken
  • The Catch
  • Uncle Buck
  • Wicked City
  • The Family
  • The Real O'Neals
  • Grandfathered (co-production with FOX)
Have you noticed a trend here? I certainly have. Take notice that almost all of ABC's upcoming series are in-house produced, and yet only one of their returning comedies (Blackish) is in-house produced. With this, I predict that ABC will start leaning heavily towards in house productions, and that whenever The Goldbergs finishes, it will be the lone show on the network not produced by the company.

CBS Studios

  • CSI
  • CSI: Cyber
  • The Amazing Race
  • NCIS
  • NCIS: LA
  • NCIS: NO
  • Criminal Minds (co-production with ABC)
  • Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders (co-production with ABC)
  • The Good Wife
  • Hawaii 5-0
  • Blue Bloods
  • Elementary
  • Under the Dome
  • Extant
  • The Odd Couple
  • Limitless
  • Code Black (co-production with ABC)
  • Angel from Hell
  • The Vampire Diaries (co-production with Warner Bros)
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • The Originals (co-production with Warner Bros)
  • Reign (co-production with Warner Bros)
  • The 100 (co-production with Warner Bros)
  • Jane the Virgin (co-production with Warner Bros)
  • Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Like with ABC, I noticed that most of the dramas yet almost none of the comedies are in-house produced. I also noticed that some of the less-favored upcoming series such as Code Black and Angel from Hell are in-house produced, which may or may not have an impact on their fates.
