(Keep refreshing for latest updates…)
I hear that Gary Unmarried, Rules Of Engagement, The New Adventures Of Old Christine, and How I Met Your Mother all look good for renewals. But Cold Case, Without A Trace, and The Unit are on the bubble. Also, Eleventh Hour looks on the “wrong side” of the bubble right now. As expected, The Mentalist, Ghost Whisperer, and NCIS will be renewed. The NCIS SPINOFF is a lock and will probably be paired on the schedule with the original. And THE GOOD WIFE still looks like a lock.
MIAMI TRAUMA and THREE RIVERS still neck and neck to be Les Moonves’ medical show. Or will he pick up both?
ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE “looking good”. WAITING TO DIE starting to heat up.
These are “in the mix”: FISH TANK, HOUSE RULES, THE EASTMANS, U.S. ATTORNEY.
HAPPINESS ISN’T EVERYTHING may be cooling in the mix.
BACK isn’t over yet.
THE BIG D and THE KARENSKYs have no heat.
As I’ve reported, MODERN FAMILY and FLASH FORWARD are on the schedule. THE MIDDLE is seriously heating up. (“I can’t believe it. It’s true,” a source says.) So is AWESOME HANK (formerly The Pryors) with Kelsey Grammar starring and exec-producing. And ROMANTICALLY CHALLENGED remains hot even if Alyssa Milano was weak. THE LAW with Cedric The Entertainer “looks pretty good” along with COUGAR TOWN.
Those “in the mix” include: BEST THING EVER (formerly The New 20) with Eric McCormack, EMPIRE STATE, HAPPY TOWN, THE FORGOTTEN, INSIDE THE BOX, UNTITLED DAVID HEMINGSON LEGAL SHOW.
MELROSE PLACE, THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE, and VAMPIRE DIARIES all look good. LIGHT YEARS “not dead yet”. No word about any resuscitation of THE GOSSIP GIRL SPINOFF after last night’s numbers.
I’ve already told you that SONS OF TUCSON and HUMAN TARGET are on the schedule and MASTERWORKS will go midseason. BROTHERS looks good. So does PAST LIFE.
COP HOUSE passed on
THE STATION “not going to happen”.
UPDATE: EVA ADAMS and TWO DOLLAR BEER both officially dead.
UPDATE: I’m told ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS was officially passed on today.
