The Upfronts - Updates

There's been new news on the upfronts ... front, including more renewals/cancellations and more shows picked up.

CBS has let the axe fall hard, cancelling The Crazy Ones, Intelligence, Friends With Better Lives, Bad Teacher, and Hostages.  They have picked up two spinoffs of two of their hit series, bringing NCIS: New Orleans and CSI: Cyber to the airwaves.  They have also gone with Madam Secretary, The Odd Couple reboot starring Matthew Perry, Scorpion, The McCarthys, and Stalker.  The press had reported that How I Met Your Dad  had been green-lighted, but apparently they had jumped the gun ... it's not confirmed to be part of the upcoming season.


The alphabet net has renewed Tim Allen's Last Man Standing and the country music-based Nashville, as well as the ever-popular Shark Tank and The Bachelor.  They have pink slipped Suburgatory and Super Fun Night.


The peacock net has pulled the plug on on Revolution and, very sadly, Community (no six seasons and a movie *sniff*) and picked up Bad Judge, Mission Control, One Big Family,  and renewed Hannibal and About a Boy.  No word yet on Parenthood.

There are SO many new shows coming later this year, I don't know where they're going to all fit!  I guess between the fall and mid-season, things will find a place ... especially after shows start getting inevitably cancelled.

I'll keep you posted as updates come about!
