Fall TV Season – 2010

I gave up doing the watch list, because there are now like a billion TV blogs who do this coverage better than I do.

That doesn’t mean I’ve lost interest in the numbers, the new shows, the cancellations…

So far the Cancellation Grim Reaper has claimed 2 scalps:

LONE STAR (FOX)
MY GENERATION (ABC)

Ratings are low enough that the following shows may be in danger:

OUTLAW (NBC)
THE WHOLE TRUTH (ABC)
DETROIT 1-8-7 (ABC)
LIFE UNEXPECTED (CW)
MEDIUM (CBS)

You’ll notice the last two shows on that list are returning shows.  Unfortunately their ratings indicate this may be their last rodeo.

Watch List now LIVE!

It is far from complete, but I’ll be updating this daily, so sit tight and all of the show premiere dates will be listed.  I’m also going to keep the 07-08 cancelled list on there for awhile, since some people may be looking for shows to come back which are, in fact, not.

Pilot news!

God Bless Nikki Finke and her insider-y knowledge. She’s posted some pilot news on her blog today.

If you haven’t listened to my radio show (prominently featured in the sidebar over there) I make my own predictions as to what will make it to the schedules, particularly for dramas. I’d say I’m almost right on so far…

Sarah Connor Chronicles Renewed by Fox

In the Hollywood Reporter this morning. Fox gave a 13 episode order to “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” for next season. No word on whether it will be scheduled for fall or spring…I say this reduces the chances for “New Amsterdam” even further (sorry Mom).

24 comes back in fall, sort of

I was on a plane yesterday, so unable to report this news. Looks like Season 7 of “24” will get a 2-hour ‘prequel’ movie, which bridges the events of Season 6 to Season 7. It’ll air in the fall, and hopefully help sate the appetite for the new season, which won’t air until January 2009.

I hate that I missed this year’s Talk Like Jack Bauer Day. Next year will be better, since the show will actually be on.

Quick news roundup

NBC’s “Las Vegas” sevens out (that’s canceled for those of you not hip to the gamble-speak).

CBS renews “The Ghost Whisperer”, but “Moonlight” still waits for news and a new showrunner!

“Friday Night Lights” — not quite dead yet.

USA renews “Monk”.

TBS likes “Frank TV”.

NBC has ordered 6 more episodes of “Lipstick Jungle”.

ABC has given “Women’s Murder Club” 3 more episodes.

ABC starts to pick up some stuff

Woohoo! Real newsy news to talk about! So, ABC came out of the gate letting us all in on which shows they’d be renewing for next season (read: pushing off too much production until fall)

Hollywood Reporter published the following:

The list include juggernauts “Desperate Housewives,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Lost” (which is in the first year of a three-season pickup), sophomore series “Brothers & Sisters” and “Ugly Betty” as well as freshmen “Private Practice” “Pushing Daisies,” “Samantha Who?” and “Dirty Sexy Money.”

The returning series all have been picked up for a full season.

Meanwhile, the four first-year shows, which all had already been picked up for the back nine, have received 13-episode orders. It is expected that, with the possible exception of “Samantha Who?,” they won’t air any new episodes this season, with extra produced segments added to their run in the fall.

So, what’s missing? “Boston Legal”, “Men in Trees”, “October Road”, “Carpoolers”, “Cavemen” and “According to Jim”, for starters. “Big Shots” looks to be dead at this point. I think it is still too soon to write off “Women’s Murder Club” or “Cashmere Mafia”.

I can update the watch list again! What a great day! 😀

ABC gives Samantha Who? full season order

Ratings for the sitcom have been surprisingly strong, holding a significant portion of the “Dancing with the Stars” audience. In about a month, when “Dancing” goes down to one hour, it will be paired up with returning series “Notes from the Underbelly”.

“Carpoolers” was given an order for 3 more scripts last week. No such order for “Cavemen”.

Watch List has been updated today.

Back to You gets full season pickup

Fox grants a ‘back nine’ plus 2 for a total of 24 episodes. There’s inference from Fox that ‘Back to You’ may either lead in to or out of American Idol come January.

Pushing Daisies gets a full season order

Rumblings on some TV discussion boards I frequent, have been lamenting that in the age of DVR/TiVO, it appears that 10 million viewers is the new benchmark for a “hit” show (it used to be 15 million a few years ago…20 million about 6 or 7 years ago).

As a result, “Pushing Daisies” gets a full season order from ABC.

On a related weird note, ABC has ordered three more scripts of “Carpoolers”. Are they serious??
