    I've changed this to a "pre-discussion" if you will. There is news now and that's fine, but the upfronts work a bit better when each network gets their own thread rather than clustering them all together and that is what we will continue to do as each network does their presentation and the press release comes out.

    I'm glad to see the rare opportunity for these shows to go out proper at the very least. However it saddens me to see Community cancelled after a next short season but The Office still apparently chug forward into the never. Heck at this point I would have much rather had another season of House than The Office, not that they share a network.

    I want a better source than this. NBC would be suicidal to just completely clean house and start over. Community has at least one full season left because Sony will strong-arm them into producing enough episodes for syndication (it's what Sony does, even if the show isn't a hit -- see 'Til Death).

    This better not be true, anyway. If it is I'm going to weep like a baby.

    I'm excited Law & Order: SVU got picked up for a 14th season. That's about all I'm looking forward to at the moment from NBC.

    I'm mostly on pins and needles about CSI: Miami and CSI: NY. CSI already got renewed and those two shows are on the bubble, and one or both of them might get axed.

    I'm also curious as to how The Secret Circle might do.

    I'm not certain if I'm a fan of how that article is written. I caught up on Community's "status" via The AV Club (
    NBC renews Community for 13-episode fourth season) which does a better job of presenting the precarious nature of the series. The AV Club at least makes it seem like there is still hope.

    The two shows I've been most worried about were renewed today with full 22 episode orders: Nikita and Hart of Dixie. With that, all my CW shows will be returning in the fall, plus a few new ones I'll be checking out (Arrow and Cult at the very least), since Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries were renewed last week. Hooray!

    This is likely to mean Nikita will get a fourth season, too, for syndication purposes. *happy dance*

    The CW canceled Ringer and The Secret Circle. I didn't make it past the Ringer pilot and dropped TSC after three episodes.

    Good gravy, TSC was disappointing. Make a show about magic teens and then don't put any magic in it. That makes sense. Just have them stand around and occasionally move a cell phone with their minds. Great idea. Bye.

    I'm really surprised (and pleased) by Nikita, though -- I'm pretty much the only person watching that.

    I've been worried about Nikita for months since its ratings are pretty low, but it's in my top three favorite shows on TV right now so I couldn't be happier to see it back. I'd heard rumors the CW bubble shows might be getting half-season orders, but I'm thrilled to see a full season of the dysfunctional spy family
