Paul Lee is now the ex-president of ABC, replaced by Channing Dungey, who becomes the first African-American to head up a major network. Josef Adalian looks at what's gone wrong at ABC this season, while Joe Flint says the move was due to internal tension between Lee and his Disney boss Ben Sherwood. Brian Lowry says this shows network jobs aren't built to last, and Tim Goodman says Dungey has an impossible task ahead. THR looks back on hits and misses across Lee's six-year tenure. David Sims wonders if this is a bad sign for innovative and inclusive television. Jason Lynch has an interview with Paul Lee from last month.
