Update May 13: the list has been updated with the CBS pickups announced this morning. If you're looking for the list of shows that got canceled or renewed, it's here.

Below is a list by network of the new scripted series pickups for 2012-13 so far. No CBS pickups yet, but I'll add them next week once available.

The information flow was a bit crazy this week and due to the piecemeal nature of the way the information came out, I probably missed something. If so, let me know and I'll add it. Note: the list is purposefully only including scripted shows. Since that's our primary focus when it comes to predicting renewals and cancellations, that's all I really kept track of.

    CW’s ones looks amazing

  • morningtvwatcher

    Downwardly Mobile was not picked up? I was really looking forward to seeing that show. It’s sounded interesting, It would have been nice to see Roseanne and John Goodman on TV together again! Hopefully it will get picked up for mid Season.

  • Naemeth

    NBC have a lot listed, will that be all they will be adding or will we find out more on the 14th?

  • Liam

    As a nit picking point I think you have a few of the genres of ABC’s shows mixed up. For example, I don’t think 666 Park Avenue is meant to be a comedy…

  • Justin

    Last Resort, Cult, Arrow, and Revolution could be BIG hits.

  • daniel

    look at ABC you change some comedy with dramas look at the genres of ABC

  • Ryan Schwartz

    The press releases yesterday all said “Malibu Country” while this blog and everyone before yesterday referred to it as “Malibu County.” Which one is correct?

  • Robert Seidman

    @morningtvwatcher: we don’t keep track of what’s still alive and what’s definitely dead, but I can tell you it hasn’t been picked up yet.

  • morningtvwatcher

    666 Park Avenue is suppose to be a drama.

  • Prodan

    Maybe create a YouTube playlist with all the promos of these shows?

  • James

    Red Widow and 666 are supposed to be dramas…the family tools is a comedy

  • Robert Seidman

    ABC’s genre designations were screwed up for some reason. should be fixed now.

  • Ben Thompson

    I’ll probably watch:

    The New Normal
    Last Resort
    Guys With Kids
    The Mindy Project
    Beauty and The Beast

  • Drew

    Really hope CBS picks up Baby Big Shot, despite its horrible title. Love seeing Janet Montgomery on my TV screen.

  • j

    Huh, the NBC show I wanted the most looks like a no-go? Beautiful People has robots (or androids)and sounded very interesting, and I’m not even into sci-fi.

    Aside from that, I’ll probably try Carrie Diaries even though I think it’s probably going to be bad and overly similar to their other shows and help tarnish the SATC brand more…though Bushnell and the movies have helped to tarnish it already. And Nashville as I like Panettiere and music, though I’m unconvinced that she can sing. Maybe 1 other show I can’t recall too.

  • Pepper

    Funny enough, the only shows that look appealing to me personally are on the CW. I really want to give Arrow, Cult, B&tB and First Cut a try. I’ll also be watching Revolution.

  • zerg

    I’ll watch for sure 666 Park’s Avenue,Last Resort and give a shot: Zero Hour,Revolution,WC trash dramas….I’m waiting CBS’s pilots

    On comedies side dunno

  • George

    @morningtvwatcher Roseanne, herself stated that NBC said it didn’t test well and she doesn’t expect it to get picked up.

  • E. Rector

    I already KNOW 4 of which are probably going to flop on NBC:

    Chicago Fire, The New Normal, Guys with Kids, and Next Caller.

  • hardline_pro

    I hope Hannibal doesn’t fail. But it’s on NBC so it probably will… :(
