With the 18 show renewals by CBS earlier this week, and the news of the Grimm renewal today I figured it was time to get this calender out.

Although many  renewal and cancellation announcements for broadcast TV primetime shows for the 2012-13 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.

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

2012 Broadcast Network Upfront Meetings

May 14, 2012 NBC New York Morning
May 14, 2012 FOX New York Afternoon
May 15, 2012 Univision New York Morning
May 15, 2012 ABC New York Afternoon
May 16, 2012 CBS New York Afternoon
May 17, 2012 The CW New York Morning

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

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.
