  • lll

    I got everything right except the cancellation of Go On and Body of Proof along with the renewal of Carrie Diaries.

  • Katherine

    What? I dont watch Body of Proof and I even know that this show was doing so much better than Nashville. Nashville is a dumb show an their ratings are low for ABC, maybe it got renew this time, but I really doubt a season 3, specially because this fall we are getting some really exiting shows, not like the ones ABC released this season. They are going to need the time slot and Nashville is going to get cancel.

  • joel

    Hannibal will be cancelled with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

  • Chris

    I cannot believe Smash has been canceled. :/

  • HV

    Here are my prediction schedules! Notes with new shows: I am assuming that the series picked up so far will be all that they will pick up, but I would not at all be surprised if CBS ended up picking up one or two more dramas. Also, if a picked up series is not on here, that means it will get held for midseason and never end up airing until the summer for like a burn-off. (For example: Like Save Me this year)


    7:00 America’s Funniest Home Videos (Sept. 15)
    8:00 Once Upon a Time (Sept. 22) (22 ep)
    9:00 Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (Sept. 22) (22 ep)
    10:00 Revenge (Sept. 22) (22 ep)

    8:00 Dancing with the Stars (Sept. 16)/The Bachelor (Jan. 6)/Dancing with the Stars (Mar. 17)
    10:00 Castle (Sept. 16) (24 ep)

    8:00 Suburgatory (Oct. 1) (22 ep)
    8:30 The Neighbors (Oct. 1) (10 ep–canceled)/Back in the Game (NEW) (Jan. 7) (16 ep–canceled)
    9:00 Dancing with the Stars (Sept. 17)/Primetime (Jan. 7)/Dancing with the Stars (Mar. 18)
    10:00 Lucky 7 (Sept. 17) (13 ep–canceled)/Mind Games (Jan. 28) (13 ep–canceled)

    8:00 The Middle (Sept. 18) (24 ep)
    8:30 Mixology (NEW) (Sept. 25) (22 ep)
    9:00 Modern Family (Sept. 18) (24 ep)
    9:30 Super Fun Night (NEW) (Sept. 25) (22 ep–canceled)/Trophy Wife (NEW) (Apr. 16) (6 ep–canceled)
    10:00 Nashville (Oct. 2) (16 ep–canceled)/The Returned (Mar. 19) (10 ep–canceled)

    8:00 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. (NEW) (Sept. 26) (24 ep)
    9:00 Grey’s Anatomy (Sept. 19) (24 ep)
    10:00 Scandal (Sept. 19) (24 ep)

    8:00 Last Man Standing (Oct. 4) (24 ep)/Killer Women (Apr. 18) (6 ep–canceled)
    8:30 The Goldbergs (NEW) (Oct. 4) (22 ep–canceled)/(Killer Women) (Apr. 18)
    9:00 Shark Tank (Sept. 13)
    10:00 20/20 (Sept. 13)

    Notes: Suburgatory is leaving Wednesday. No way is ABC keeping it there. I think they will move The Neighbors with it. Then ABC will understand how bad The Neighbors does not between The Middle and Modern Family and will cancel it. Yes, I did put Sheild in the death slot. But I think it will do well there. The other thing is that Last Man Standing is ABC’s only multi-cam comedy, so I had to pair it with a single-cam.


    7:00 60 Minutes (Sept. 8)
    8:00 The Amazing Race (Sept. 15)
    9:00 The Good Wife (FINAL) (Sept. 22) (22 ep)
    10:00 Hostages (NEW) (Sept. 22) (22 ep–canceled)

    8:00 How I Met Your Mother (FINAL) (Sept. 23) (24 ep)
    8:30 Mom (NEW) (Sept. 23) (22 ep–canceled)
    9:00 2 Broke Girls (Sept. 23) (24 ep)
    9:30 The Millers (NEW) (Sept. 30) (10 ep–canceled)/Mike & Molly (Jan. 6) (18 ep–canceled)
    10:00 Hawaii Five-0 (Sept. 23) (24 ep)

    8:00 NCIS (Sept. 17) (24 ep)
    9:00 NCIS: Los Angeles (Sept. 17) (24 ep)
    10:00 Inteligence (NEW) (Sept. 24) (22 ep)

    8:00 Survivor (Sept. 18)/We Are Men (Jan. 8) (16 ep)
    8:30 (Survivor) (Sept. 18)/The Crazy Ones (Jan. 8) (16 ep)
    9:00 Criminal Minds (Sept. 25) (24 ep)
    10:00 CSI (Sept. 25) (24 ep)

    8:00 The Big Bang Theory (Sept. 19) (24 ep)
    8:30 Two and a Half Men (FINAL) (Sept. 26) (24 ep)
    9:00 Person of Interest (Sept. 19) (24 ep)
    10:00 Elementary (Sept. 19) (24 ep)

    8:00 Undercover Boss (Oct. 11)
    9:00 The Mentalist (Sept. 27) (22 ep)
    10:00 Blue Bloods (Sept. 27) (24 ep)

    Notes: Mike & Molly needs 18 episodes for syndication. So, CBS should give it that many for midseason, with the intent of replacing one of their two new Tuesday night comedies with it. Then, I think that will be the end of that show. I think that CBS’s multi-camera comedies will be a huge success, but I think that CBS will have to add an hour of comedy for them. Right now, I have Undercover Boss running the whole year (pretty much), but if CBS pickes up another drama it will probably go there starting in January, unless its NCIS: Red, then it will replace Intelligence which will replace Hostages, which will end up on Friday at 8:00 January-May.


    8:00 Star-Crossed (NEW) (Sept. 23) (10 ep–canceled)/The Carrie Diaries (Jan. 6) (13 ep–canceled)
    9:00 The Hundred (NEW) (Sept. 23) (22 ep)

    8:00 Heart of Dixie (Sept. 24) (22 ep)
    9:00 The Tomorow People (NEW) (Sept. 24) (13 ep–canceled)/Reign (NEW) (Jan. 21) (10 ep–canceled)/Oh Sit! (Apr. 15)

    8:00 Arrow (Sept. 25) (24 ep)
    9:00 Supernatural (Sept. 18) (24 ep)

    8:00 The Vampire Diaries (Sept. 12) (24 ep)
    9:00 The Originals (NEW) (Sept. 19) (24 ep)

    8:00 Nikita (FINAL) (Oct. 4) (16 ep)/Encore Programing (Mar. 7)
    9:00 Beauty and the Beast (Oct. 4) (22 ep–canceled)

    Notes: So, I think that The CW will decide to replace their show that fails the most first with Heart of Dixie, and then replace the next failiure with Reign. Nikita, I’ll give 16 episodes, so it can maybe gain syndication with 83 episodes.


    7:00 NFL on Fox/The OT (Nov.3)/Encore Progaming (Jan. 5)
    7:30 The OT/Bob’s Burgers (Nov. 3) (22 ep)
    8:00 The Simpsons (Sept. 22) (24 ep)
    8:30 Murder Police (NEW) (Sept. 22) (22 ep)
    9:00 Family Guy (Sept. 22) (24 ep)
    9:30 American Dad! (Sept. 22) (22 ep)

    8:00 Bones (Sept. 16) (24 ep)
    9:00 Sleepy Hollow (NEW) (Sept. 23) (10 ep–canceled)/The Following (Jan. 6) (15 ep)

    8:00 Raising Hope (FINAL) (Sept. 17) (24 ep)
    8:30 Surviving Jack (NEW) (Sept. 17) (22 ep)/Enlisted (NEW) (Apr. 8) (6 ep–canceled)
    9:00 New Girl (Sept. 17) (24 ep)
    9:30 Brooklyn Nine-Nine (NEW) (Sept. 24) (10 ep–canceled)/The Mindy Project (Jan. 7) (16 ep–canceled)

    8:00 The X Factor (Sept. 11)/American Idol (Jan. 8)
    9:30 Dads (NEW) (Sept. 18) (6 ep)/(The X-Factor) (Oct. 30)/ Us and Them (NEW) (Jan. 15) (6 ep–canceled)/(American Idol) (Feb. 26)

    8:00 The X Factor (Sept. 12)/American Idol (Jan. 9)
    9:00 Almost Human (NEw) (Sept. 19) (22 ep)

    8:00 Kitchen Nightmares (Oct. 11)/Rake (NEW) (Jan. 3) (6 ep–canceled)/Gang Related (NEW) (Feb. 28) (10 ep–canceled)
    9:00 Glee (Sept. 20) (22 ep)

    Notes: Fox has a lot of shows and a little time. I think that Fox will plan on having The Following air in its same timeslot January-May. So, they would cancel one of Sleepy Hollow and Almost Human. They would have the not canceled one air Thursday @ 9:00. I think that Sleepy Hollow will be the failiure. Yes, I had to move Glee to Friday. You try making a schedule where you don’t! Fox has a ton of comedies. So, I think they will have two of them air 6 episodes after 90 minute episodes of The X-Factor or American Idol for weeks 2-7 of the shows. I would love to give Dads a full season, but there’s little room for a lot of laughs.


    7:00 Sunday Night Football/Dateline NBC (Jan. 5)
    9:00 (Sunday Night Football)/The Apprentice (Jan. 5)

    8:00 The Voice (Sept. 9)/Biggest Loser (Jan. 6)/The Voice (Mar. 31)
    10:00 Revolution (Sept. 9) (13 ep)/Ironside (NEW) (Jan. 6) (10 ep–canceled)/Revolution (Mar. 31) (9 ep)

    8:00 The Voice (Sept. 10)/Betty White’s Off Their Rockers (Jan. 7)/The Voice (Apr. 1)
    9:00 Parenthood (FINAL) (Sept. 10) (24 ep)/The Blacklist (Apr. 15) (5 ep)
    10:00 Grimm (Sept. 10) (22 ep)/The Blacklist (Apr. 15) (5 ep–canceled)

    8:00 Undateable (NEW) (Sept. 18) (22 ep)
    8:30 Sean Saves the World (NEW) (Sept. 18) (22 ep–canceled)
    9:00 Chicago Fire (Sept. 11) (24 ep)
    10:00 Chicago P.D. (NEW) (Sept. 18) (22 ep–canceled)

    8:00 Community (FINAL) (Sept. 19) (13 ep)/About a Boy (NEW) (Feb. 27) (13 ep–canceled)
    8:30 MJF (NEW) (Sept. 19) (24 ep)
    9:00 Welcome to the Family (NEW) (Sept. 19) (22 ep)/The Family Guide (NEW) (Apr. 10) (6 ep–canceled)
    9:30 Parks and Recreation (Sept. 19) (24 ep)
    10:00 Law & Order: SVU (Sept. 12) (24 ep)

    8:00 Dracula (NEW) (Sept. 20) (10 ep)/Crossbones (NEW) (Jan. 3) (10 ep)/Fashion Star (Mar. 28)
    9:00 Believe (NEW) (Sept. 20) (22 ep)/Crossbones (NEW) (Mar. 28) (3 ep–canceled)/Dateline NBC (Apr. 18)
    10:00 Crisis (NEW) (Sept. 20) (22 ep)/Dateline NBC (Mar. 28)

    Notes: NBC made it obvious that they will be changing one hour in the week from comedy to drama by canceling all of their comedies except Parks and Recreation and Community and by picking up many dramas. Tuesday @ 9:00, say goodbye to comedy and hello to drama! Grimm, I believe, will not go back to Friday. The Blacklist I think will sneak in in the spring with back-to-back episodes in the spring for five weeks. I think that NBC will use the Olympics to premire About a Boy. Its timeslot premire is the one I have listed above. Law & Order: SVU is the show I believe will be able to do well in the death slot. Friday will become a night of three new dramas, as NBC went crazy with dramas. Crossbones I think will get 13 episodes. The last three though will be at 9:00 because of Fashion Star. After Crossbones ends, Dateline NBC, which will have gone for three weeks of hour-long episodes on Friday, will have two-hour episodes. NBC will have to cancel a lot of dramas this season.

    What are your thoughts on any or all of my schedules?

  • MIKE36

    I remember back in the day when NBC was in the lead with FRIENDS, FRASIER,SEINFELD,ER,WILL & GRACE,JUST SHOOT ME,and SCRUBS

  • jmac

    Is anyone else getting sick of all the cancelling??? I will be the first to admit that there are plenty of dogs in the pack but come on!?! I’m almost at the point where I won’t start a new show until it has a couple of seasons under its belt. It’s hard to get invested in a show when approximately 40% are being cancelled. It’s just disheartening!!!

    It makes me wonder if the networks can really depend on the numbers considering that a lot of content is being watched via download and over the air with “new digital signals”. Nelsons now includes DVR numbers which is good but without downloading numbers, how accurate is that 18-49 demo rate? I guess I’m just frustrated! Out of the 38 shows canc/ended there were at least a handful that were interesting, not your typical police, lawyers, and doctor crowd. Don’t get me wrong… some of my favs fit in that box, but the ones that don’t I’m sad to see go!!!

  • Dan

    @III – Most people would agree with you. I expected NBC to give Go On a second chance which they didnt, and ABC to give Body of Proof a third which they didn’t.

    Go On despite being 50/50 in the index was probably the biggest miss of the season. Body of Proof was somewhat of a miss because it was hinted that ABC would give it a fourth year as they were happy with the show.

    The Carrie Diaries I always said would get a second season but of course the second BATB was renewed I figured it would get canned. I expect it to get the Life Unexpected treatment and to be cancelled after 13 episodes. I expect ANTM to air in the summer as well, so 7 returning series and 3 new dramas for fall adds up to an even 10 hours. Makes sense.

  • CBSviewer

    What CBS should do:

    8:00 – How I Met Your Mother (24 episodes)
    8:30 – Mom (13-22 episodes)
    9:00 – 2 Broke Girls (24 episodes)
    9:30 – Mike & Molly (22 episodes)
    10:00 – Hostages (13-24 episodes)

    8:00 – NCIS (24 episodes)
    9:00 – NCIS: Los Angeles (24 episodes)
    10:00 – Criminal Minds (23 episodes)

    8:00 – Survivor
    9:00 – Person of Interest (23 episodes)
    10:00 – CSI (23 episodes)

    8:00 – The Big Bang Theory (25 episodes, One Hour Season Finale)
    8:30 – Crazy Ones (13-22 episodes)
    9:00 – Two and a Half Men (23 episodes)
    9:30 – We Are Men (13-22 episodes)
    10:00 – Elementary (22 episodes)

    8:00 – Intelligence (13-16 episodes) / Undercover Boss
    9:00 – Hawaii Five-0 (22 episodes)
    10:00 – Blue Bloods (22 episodes)

    8:00 – The Amazing Race
    9:00 – The Good Wife (18 episodes)
    10:00 – The Mentalist (20 episodes)

    Thoughts ?

  • Dan

    With 2 of CBS’s comedies being single camera, I wonder if they may start a new hour of comedy on another night maybe midseason should they not go through with the comedy expansion.

    @JMAC – The cancellations suck but they are justified as the networks have had some of the worst seasons in history.

    NBC had a good season with The Voice but only 2 new dramas emerged from this season Revolution and Chicago Fire (Which is on par with last season’s Grimm and Smash) and nearly all the comedies were wiped off NBC’s slate save for 2009 veteran classics Parks & Rec and Community. Still they can rebound next season using what they have combined with new shows.

    All of ABC’s dramas flopped save for Nashville and all the comedies didnt perform up to expectations except The Neighbors which did the best (Though still kinds crappy toward the end) So theres a drama and a comedy from them. Not as good as last season where 3 dramas (Revenge, Scandal, Once Upon a Time) and 3 comedies (Last Man Standing, Suburgatory, Apartment 23) were renewed but at least 5 of those 6 shows are still around for third years.

    FOX barely had any shows this season so of the 4 (2 dramas & 2 comedies) 1 drama (The Following) and one comedy (The Mindy Project) succeeded, which was the same amount renewed as last season (New Girl & Touch) And they’re a small network so thats good for them anyway.

    CW renewed the most freshman dramas of any network and the most in history (Arrow, The Carrie Diaries, and BATB) and dumped veterans Gossip Girl & 90210. My guess to why both BATB and Carrie Diaries were renewed is that CW is testing everything out for fall so that they have 7 returning dramas and 3 new dramas and for the first time every no ANTM in the fall.

    CBS barely had any shows this season. Partners and Made in Jersey flopped out of the gate, Vegas and Golden Boy only lasted a season and Friend Me never aired. However they cancelled the same amount of shows from last season with a good amount of returning comedies and dramas so they will be fine.

    This season was terrible for all networks but they salvage the few well performing shows that they have and do what they always do, start fresh next season.

  • fringegot5seasons

    How many midseason renewals were there?

    CBS only took Elementary from their freshman class and once again, no show that didn’t air the full season was renewed (even CSI: NY and Rules bit the dust for not having 22+ ep orders).

    I haven’t been keeping track of the other nets and their midseason shows though but I imagine the carnage for anything starting in 13 was brutal.

  • Joseph A

    The Fact that Rules was not renewed for me was not a surprise, I saw the 2012 / 2013 order as being something that was done for the sole purpose to fill a hole and support their relationship with the production company. Thinking the challenge CBS has for 2013 / 2014 are the number of shows that need to end, and if they can get enough solid shows out of the next season to replace them.

  • Nick


    Has there been any news on renewels for the non scripted shows Dancing With The Stars, The Bachelor or Shark Tank?

    No. There has been no word for the three of them. However, ABC has put out casting calls for Shark Tank, pretty much guaranteeing it coming back.

  • Nick


    How many midseason renewals were there?

    ONE. Fricking ONE.

    ABC: Zero Hour (Cancelled), Red Widow (Cancelled), How to Live (Cancelled), Family Tools (Cancelled)

    CBS: Golden Boy (Cancelled)

    The CW: The Carrie Diaries (Cancelled), Cult (Cancelled)

    Fox: The Following (Renewed)

    NBC: 1600 Penn (Cancelled), Deception (Cancelled), Do No Harm (Cancelled), Hannibal (TBA)

  • Melissa


    The Carrie Diaries (Cancelled)

    The Carrie Diaries was renewed.

  • Jodi

    Please find out about Hannibal. That is one good show.

  • AJ

    NBC hopes that Hannibal will get an The Office boost this Thursday.

  • mick dundee

    …oh great The Following gets renewed and Hannibal gets the cannonball…as an overseas viewer Hannibal is the only show worth waiting a week for…the smartest show on telly bar none…as long as the masses get to see another season of Kevin Bacon & Eggs chase then lose a suspect every episode….”jesus wept!!”.

  • The Cannibal


    If Hannibal is cancelled iot won’t be with fava beans and nice chianti. It will be with a sniper and a hit list of NBC executives. I dare them to cancel the only quality show on network tv.

  • Jamie

    “The Cleveland Show” hasn’t been cancelled yet.
