Wow. So long Community.
Excellent analysis of the kiss of Dan Harmon by Alan Sepinwall:
+1. Kristin Kreuk is terrible. I can't believe they would cast her.
I don't know why CW didn't just cancel everything but Vampire Diaries.
I have been noticing on twitter a number of TV critics who have received screeners. I am hoping this leads to an outbreak of leaked pilots.
Fox keeps renewing crud like Simpsons and American Dad, but cancels Alcatraz! Go figure.
One person's crud is another person's classic I don't watch either of those shows, but to say The Simpsons is crud.....well I'm speechless.
I wonder if ratings & budget somehow figured into the decisions?
I doubt it. Networks only resort to those metrics when fan reaction on Internet message boards is inconclusive.
I wouldn't call it Crud but it is WAYYYYY past it's prime and hardly ever makes me laugh anymore. The nostaligic part of me would be sad to see it go. It's been on the air since I was five years old! I literally don't remember TV without The Simpsons.
American Dad is the funniest show of Animation Domination. MUCH better than Family Guy IMHO.
The fact is that those shows are cheap to make and Alcatraz cost a small fortune. Those shows will continue to do well in syndication for decades to come. Alcatraz has very little chance of that.
We going to get a new one of these for 2013?
There have been separate threads to discuss each of the networks' new schedules, so no need for a general upfronts thread.

How can CW afford to keep Supernatural on the air?
NCIS (any name here) is way past it prime. I do like NCIS:LA, but if canceled would not miss it. Look like Tuesday will be NCIS night when CBS add NCIS:RED.
Like Golden Boy, Vages. Hope the lead actor in Golden Boy receive another show. Like him
TNT not on this list but I think Southland was canceled, will miss that show.
NCIS (Name) still brings in the viewers. It's either the top or second rated show. And viewer wise, it usually beats the runner up by a healthy margin.
What's confusing? For a CW show it's doing just dandy in the ratings.
As Worf said, NCIS is doing just fine. I don't think CBS cares that you think it's past its prime. Here's the graphic they used to promote their upfront presentation this week.
very few successes from the pickups in the first post
I've been a big fan of Purefoy since A Knight's Tale so I'm thrilled to see him play the serial killer.
