    2011-2012 Television Season

    It's that time again, folks. May Upfronts are here. It's when the shows we love find a home (or not) on the new fall schedule. We know there have been a rash of cancellations over the last few days and some pick-ups. But here's the official thread for all that good stuff.


    Upfront Schedule:

    NBC: May 16
    FOX: May 16
    ABC: May 17
    CBS: May 18
    CW: May 19

    I'm so glad they renewed Parenthood! Since they moved Harry's Law (did it just disappear this season?), I may actually be able to watch it, depending on what it's against.

    Looking at the NBC schedule, I just realized how very few shows on their schedule I watch any more.

    Could they be holding it until mid-season like they did with Community this season?

    ITA that their line-up is pretty "meh." There isn't one show on that schedule that is must-see. Most of my must-see shows seem to be on cable or Fox nowadays.

    I for one am not thrilled with Harry's Law new timeslot. That's a time slot that I already have a few things that I watch. It was a good time slot for me where it was.

    I wish HBO would start the new season of Boardwalk Empire this summer so there would be something good to watch, instead of waiting unti the fall when there are so many new shows and new seasons to compete with.

    The full release says

    On tap for midseason: 30 Rock, new cycles of Celebrity Apprentice and The Voice; the new comedies Are You There, Vodka? Itís Me, Chelsea, Bent and Best Friends Forever; and the new dramas Awake, Smash (which will air Mondays at 10, after The Voice), and The Firm (based on the John Grisham novel, yet to be cast).
    So no worries about 30 Rock!

    I'm curious to see what other networks will do and if there will be any switches.
