Although many  renewal and cancellation announcements for broadcast TV primetime shows for the 2011-12 season will happen prior to these dates, the broadcast network upfront events are the final date on which each network’s fall schedules might be revealed.

Of course, if you follow our Renew/Cancel Index, and Bubble Watch, you’ll be pretty sure of your show’s fates way in advance of these dates.

So, you’ll know no later than these dates about the fate of your favorite broadcast primetime shows. (although for the craziest of fans, the announcements on the dates below really don’t really mean anything…)

2011 Broadcast Network Upfront Meetings

May 16, 2011 NBC New York Morning
May 16, 2011 FOX New York Afternoon
May 17, 2011 ABC New York Afternoon
May 18, 2011 CBS New York Afternoon
May 19, 2011 The CW New York Morning

Cable networks also have advertising upfront events spread throughout March, April and May, but they aren’t typically “the day renewals and cancellations are revealed” as are the broadcast events.
