According to Cynopsis, below are rumors swirling around about broadcast network pickups for next season. I'm sad and angry about Studio 60, it's such a good show with an awesome cast, but NBC hasn't given it the proper backing. According to NBC's website a new episode will appear on May 24th at least. Happy about a possible Heroes spin-off though.
- CBS will bring back two comedies - The New Adventures of Old Christine and Rules of Engagement; and a drama with Jimmy Smits (a nice addition to any schedule), while Close to Home may fall off the fall lineup. Jury is still out on Jericho.
- ABC to give an additional 13-episode order to Notes from the Underbelly, and perhaps 9 more of The Knights of Prosperity. Also look for the network to renew George Lopez and new drama Football Wives
- FOX will like bring back Brad Garrett's 'Til Death, and guesses are it will be paired up with Action News comedy, starring Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer.
- NBC won't bring back Crossing Jordan, Studio 60 or the Black Donnellys, while L&O SVU has already received the nod for next year, look for all three Law & Orders will be back (either on NBC or TNT). Scrubs will be on the shelf in case it's needed.
- NBC.com is launching a Heroes spin off this summer
- CW probably won't bring back Veronica Mars, but 7th Heaven definitely has finished it's run (remember last year it rec'd an 11th hour reprieve). New likelys include Reaper and Gossip Girl
