    Wait. Officially Better With You was canceled?? Nooooo Poor Josh Cooke. He and Christian Slater just cannot make this work! That's 3 for both now.

    There are still probably a few cancellations to be announced for CBS (The Defenders, $#!t my Dad Says?) and CW (Hellcats), but most of the bloodletting has been finalized.

    I still can't decide if I should be surprised by all this news or not. With upfronts next week, on one hand, I would think they'd wait until then to make the big announcements. OTOH, I get that room has to be cleared on the schedule and they would rather the NEW shows be the big announcements rather than what's gone.

    EDIT: After reading what I just typed, I've decided. I'm not surprised. It's really not a good thing to go on stage and announce "We here at NBC would like to announce the failure of 11 shows from this season."

    The cancellation news is definitely not a surprise for this week. However, I'm a little surprised that so many of the new pickups have been announced. I'd think the networks would want to save those in their quiver for next week. But from what I understand, it becomes pretty hard to keep the news under wraps when contracts are signed and actors/creators are immediately booked to fly to NYC to appear at the upfont presentation. With Facebook and Twitter, that kind of news just can't stay secret very long.

    Yes, and it's probably a good idea. The shows would get all kinds of publicity for their titles, but very little for their actual content. Now they can try to make a name for themselves based on whether they're good or not rather than because they have a controversial title.

    So is Harrys Law the only freshmen scripted series on NBC to be renewed?

    Yes. Very few will survive on any network (Body of Proof, Happy Endings on ABC; Raising Hope, Bob's Burgers on FOX; probably Nikita on CW and a few yet to be determined on CBS). Overall, not a great year for the networks.

    I wonder what's the word on "The Good Wife."

    I thought for sure it would be renewed. Easily one of the best shows on TV these days.

    So far, I have yet to see a new series for next season I'm even remotely interested in, Terra Nova aside (possibly).

    The upfronts for those are on a completely different schedule from primetime broadcast.

    Word is that it's certain to be renewed, but CBS hasn't made any announcements yet.
