I was wondering if this would make a good basis for discussing all the news pending and breaking about television series debuts and cancelations, rather than starting a separate thread on every dang show 10% of us care about, all throughout spring. Vidiot's had pretty good response on the yearly "movie hits and bombs" threads, there should be at least one umbrella thread on networks announcing changes in series. Upfront Season seems to be the right time and place for that. For those who don't know, every network schedules an "upfront presentation" for the advertising community, usually waiting until most traditional broadcast seasons have just about run their course in Spring. They unveil the changes to their schedules, usually bring in a couple of big stars to do a special segment or two, and essentially schmooze ad buyers prior to commercial-pitching time. Most of the networks that "really matter" get some press buzz, Hollywood rags regurgitate the headlines and it filters into the media-lite-chat circles so Entertainment Tonite and radio morning shows will have something to ooh-and-ahh about. I had a friend who used to write for a local supermarket-caliber TV magazine years ago, and she used to do a yearly "friends-bet" event (kind of a TV Nerds March Madness) based around it. I found a site called "spoilertv.com" with a schedule of this years' upfronts, and while we're not into April yet, it looks like two upfronts have already come and gone, those involving the Hallmark channels, and A+E's properties. Obviously the biggies would be going last, because who wants to show their cards before Dick Wolf has had a chance to announce whether he's taking over Wednesday nights with a new "Law & Order: Dog Catchers", or "Chicago Dog Catchers" franchise, right? Anyway, that's the way I'm thinking of doing it this year.
