QUICK TAKE

THE KIDS OF ABC'S COMEDIES ARE ALL GROWN UP AND GRADUATING!

Meet the class of 2017! Following are ABC comedy storylines, featuring graduations, airing in May. All times are EDT.

TUESDAY, MAY 9

"FRESH OFF THE BOAT" - "This Is Us" - In part one of the season finale, Eddie graduates from middle school and is looking forward to starting high school with his crew. But when Jessica sets her sights on a new private school for Evan, she explores the idea of moving the family to a new upscale neighborhood, triggering more big changes for the whole family. Meanwhile, Louis gets an opportunity to expand Cattleman's Ranch with his new silent partner, singer Michael Bolton. Singer Michael Bolton, Howard Hesseman ("Head of the Class") and Ian Gomez ("Cougar Town") guest star. (9:00-9:30 p.m.)

TUESDAY, MAY 16

"THE MIDDLE" - "Fight or Flight" - Having finally graduated college, Axl tells Frankie and Mike that he's planning on going to Europe over the summer with Kenny. Although Frankie thinks this is a great once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Mike is less than pleased and thinks his slacker son should be putting all of his summer efforts into finding a job. Meanwhile, Sue begins to panic after she barely scrapes a parked SUV and doesn't hear back from the owner after leaving several notes on the windshield; and Brick discovers that his sudden onset of backaches is due to not sitting in his lawn chair, which was replaced by a normal kitchen-table chair, on the season finale. The episode was directed by co-creator/executive producer Eileen Heisler. (8:00-8:30 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY, MAY 17

"THE GOLDBERGS" - "Graduation Day" - On the season finale, graduation day is quickly approaching and Erica cannot wait to get out of the house, until it dawns on her how much Beverly's love means to her. She attempts to delay her graduating so she can stay home. Later, Barry has plans for him and Lainey, but they turn to dust. Meanwhile, Dana makes a surprise visit just as Adam and Jackie officially become a couple. Actor/director Kevin Smith directs his second episode of the series. (8:00-8:30 p.m.)

"MODERN FAMILY" - "The Graduates" - In the season finale, Manny's father, Javier (guest star Benjamin Bratt), shows up for his graduation and takes him out on a wild night of celebration, and then Jay steps in to pick up the pieces. Meanwhile, the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is getting ready for Luke and Manny's big day and dealing with the emotions that come with seeing your kids grow up and leave the nest. (9:00-9:31 p.m.)
