Same old, but posted for the hell of it!CBS Fall Preview
CBS’s new Fall Schedule is to be announced Wednesday, May 16th at 2:00 EST. CBS faces the same problem each year as they try to engage younger viewers to their shows, while in reality, continuing their same streak of repetitive programming. Case in point: how many CBS shows are you actually watching?
What do we not need to worry about?
Survivor (can you believe this is the only show CBS has officially renewed for next season?)
What shows are looking good for renewal, but no official announcement has been made?
Rules of Engagement (it had a good run as a midseason replacement), CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY (although it’s the most vulnerable), Criminal Minds, NCIS, The Unit, Without a Trace, Cold Case, Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs, Two and a Half Men, 60 MinutesWhat shows are riding that bubble?
Shark (with rumors buzzing of a move to Friday), The New Adventures of Old Christine (with a possible less than full-season), How I Met Your Mother (rumored to be picked up for a full season), Close to Home, The Amazing Race
What should we prepare to say an “official” goodbye to?
The Class, Jericho
What shows did they already can?
King of Queens (series finale tonight), Smith, 3 Lbs.
What new shows are likely to be picked for next season?
The Hollywood Reported announced today that CBS has picked up four drama pilots "Cane” (with Jimmy Smits), "Moonlight," "Viva Laughlin" and "Swingtown," and one comedy pilot "The Big Bang Theory" (as well as an alternative pilot "Power of 10", a game show from "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" maven Michael Davies). The dramas "Babylon Fields" and "The Man" (with LL Cool J) are also said to be in contention at CBS as well, however face a lesser chance now.
CBS was also expected to consider at least two more half-hours: "The Captain" (which features Jeffrey Tambor and Raquel Welch in its
supporting cast) and "I'm in Hell." A lot of trade reports were indicating good buzz for "Fugly".Source:http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/12410567.html#cutid1
