    For Canadians, in case you didn't spot it: City has been airing season 7 of Law & Order UK. It started at the beginning of the month and I missed a couple but was able to find them online.

    Such a good show, even if it does recycle plotlines from its US parent (there's a switch!). Though I'm missing Harriet Walter as the DI in charge.

    There are some shows that were supposed to start this season but I have not seen or heard anything about them. Shows like Resurrection, Enlisted, Believe, and Star-Crossed. Anybody know anything about when they will start?

    They're doing some sort of musical - a la Glee.
    Rarely watch; but, will, to see Dule' Hill re-visit his dancing/performer past.

    I didn't realize until now that one of my favorite new comedies from last season, Go On, was cancelled. I thought it was one of those mid-season shows that would return in the winter. :wuzrobbed

    Of the new shows this season I'm liking The Blacklist, Hello Ladies, Super Fun Night. I watch The Michael J. Fox show because he's so adorable, but the writing needs help.

    Nothing official at this time. However, the folks over at TVLine seem to think it's a sure thing http://tvline.com/2013/10/31/renewed-tv-shows-2014-renewal-scorecard-cancelled-series/4/#

    It's actually kind of early for most shows to get renewals, although there are always a few that get early nods.

    There is danger in that though. I kind of wonder if the peeps a FOX are still happy they gave Glee that extra season pick-up so early. Although, getting to 100 eps for syndication stripping, and all the ancillary rights, probably make them tons of money.

    "Grimm" is doing well enough for NBC to be renewed. (I expect it's Friday partner "Dracula" to be canceled though).

    I'm a bit disappointed in the direction "Grimm" has taken since season 1. I expected more lore on the Grimms and less creature of the week. But I still watch.

    I really liked The Sarah Connor Chronicles and the whole Terminator franchise, so I don't mind this reboot.

    We are behind you in viewing - I just bought and watched season 2 on DVD. My impression was the opposite. I thought season 1 was mostly creature of the week and a bit corny. I almost stopped watching, but when season 2 came on and I watched the first couple of episodes - they had me hooked. I bought the set so I wouldnt have to wait to see it. No season 3 yet, but it ended on a real cliff-hanger so I cant wait to see what happened.

    I thought they must have had a writer change between 1 and 2 - the scripts picked up and the emphasis was more on the characters and less on the monsters. I also think this show works better with more people knowing about the Vessen. And I thought we got quite a lot more background on the Grimms and the 7 Families. I hope season 3 continues in this vein and doesnt revert to season 1.

    I've enjoyed GRIMM Season 3 so far. I feel like they're really getting more into the ancient lore and history of the world of Grimms, Royals and Wesen. And I like seeing what each character is able to bring to the new alliance in the way of experience, knowledge, etc. - kind of a Justice League fighting against evil...but nothing is ever truly black-and-white/good-and-evil.

    Me too. The Sarah Connor Chronicles went through too many time slot changes.

    I just hope they do the "Terminator" franchise right if they reboot it.

    I like it as well. There are some moments, though, that might make it a candidate for a later time slot. You know the ones I mean.

    I think it is great that Kelly Clarkson's Christmas special pulled in over 5 million viewers! It had the same ratings as Michael Buble's special last year. Good for her!
