That must mean then both "Parks and Recreation" and "The Middle" may be in trouble if these two are being renewed.

Both have actually already been renewed.

Thanks! I was expecting ABC/NBC to change those nightly blocks at least a little bit, but it appears it's status quo for next year.

I like Mercy and Trama (Trama a bit more) and I like Flashforward.

The new shows I really cared about (Cougartown, The Vampire Diaries) are safe, so I'm okay. Add in Glee, Modern Family, V and Flashforward, this has been a very strong season for new shows. If both V and Flashforward are done, I'll live, although I probably prefer V.

Does this mean Criminal Minds is safe for next season?

CM's the only prime Time show I watch semi-regularly.

There was already talk that next season will actually have the cast go backwards in time (5 years+) with William Walker still alive (thus Tom Skerritt comes back).

I love Tom Skerritt, that'd be awesome. Though they'd have to get new actors to play Sarah's kids, it'd be pretty hard to reverse the kids that play Paige & Cooper 5 years.


Any word on Parenthood?

I hope it's safe, I am really enjoying it.

I'm not sure how the networks expect a 'big' show along the lines of Flash Forward to do well when they yank it around the schedule and schedule long breaks. 24 and Lost can do that since they have a rabid following (aren't coming back/big star attached/etc.).

It's like Firefly or Journeyman (with Kevin Kidd as the time traveling cop) - Loved both and lost both after an abbreviated first season. Either give it a full 2 years to make a mark or make it a 1 year longer miniseries type show with a start/middle/end (and a chance for spinoffs or prequels).

Didn't Journeyman also suffer from the writer's strike? I remember there were a bunch of fledgling series that got majorly derailed by the strike because they hadn't had time to develop a following. I liked that show a lot.

Renewed.

That doesn't surprise me, given the cast I can't imagine that they'd pull the plug on that show too quickly. Plus, it's a good show.

P & R got a very early renewal this winter. Amy Poehler's expecting her second child and the show had to start taping some of Season 3 (or their second full season) this spring to make up for when she's unavailable later this summer.

Starring in a TV show and the mom of two kids under two. Even with nannies that sounds completely exhausting. :yawn: :coffee: (OTOH, this is the woman who had enough energy to be Palin-rappin' a week before she had the first youngun. :))

I don't watch this show, but I read an interview with the producer that they are planning on jumping forward a year. That way they can bypass the aftermath of a major character leaving. They definitely are going forward, since Giles Marini will be a regular next year.

It's too bad, because I love Tom Skerritt.

I read the same thing about Brothers & Sisters moving forward one year. I wouldn't mind seeing how the family was when William was alive but maybe they can just do a flashback somehow to that time.

I'm nervous for V and Flashforward. I don't watch too many shows anymore but those are two of my faves. IMO, they both suffered due to the long breaks they had around the Olympics and I hope ABC gives them a chance to have a second season to see if they can grow their fanbases with regular airings. I don't feel like either show got a fair chance with those long haituses this year. Quite frankly, V wasn't even supposed to start airing until this past winter or spring, so they didn't do the show any favors by starting it early and then yanking it off the air just when it was starting to find a steady audience. :(
