Maybe it's time to start preparing the #SaveCougarTown hashtag?
ABC released its midseason schedule Friday, but the Courteney Cox-starring comedy was conspicuously absent. Sources tell TVGuide.com that Cougar Town will still...
When ABC announced its fall schedule in May, the network's critics and competitors were skeptical. Not only were its aging dramas quickly eroding, but ABC faced a formidable task in launching a whopping 13 new series.
It seemed like a tall order for ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee, who was coming off his first full development season at the network. But as NBC sinks into an even deeper slump, ABC has somehow managed to defy the odds. It doesn't yet boast the ratings prowess of top-rated CBS and Fox, but Lee is encouraged by his network's ability to debut a handful of promising new series.
Having finally solved their comedy crisis, the networks may be about to face a drama drought. Network executives are cheering the launch of several promising new fall sitcoms, such as Fox's New Girl, CBS' 2 Broke Girls and ABC's Last Man Standing. "The story of the fall season is comedy," says Jerry Bruckheimer TV president Jonathan Littman. "Comedy is back, no question about it."
"This is the secret of Comic-Con," said TV Guide Magazine Senior Editor William Keck as he introduced the panelists for TV Guide Magazine Presents: Super Supernaturals. "It's the hottest and sexiest panel I've ever seen." Judging by the screams in the audience, the crowd agreed...

That old showbiz adage "leave 'em wanting more" might apply to the TV networks next season. Several of primetime's most anticipated new dramas, including Fox's Terra Nova and Alcatraz, plus NBC's Smash and Awake, will likely air just 13 episodes during the 2011-2012 season.
When successful, series on the broadcast networks usually run at least 22 episodes from September to May. But next season some of primetime's biggest new entries are being held until January or later, limiting their run. (Mid-season shows rarely get more than 13 episodes.)...

Start spreading the news, they're filming today. The TV networks want to be a part of it, New York, New York!
An unusually high number of new primetime dramas will be filmed in the Big Apple next season, as tax incentives and other perks attract studios and networks looking to save money while giving shows a more authentic New York backdrop.
At CBS, the shift to the East Coast is quite pronounced: All four of the network's new hour-long series will be shot in New York. That includes...

Through the first two days and three networks of the upfront week, a nagging thought keeps occurring to me. When people ask me what to look forward to in the fall, I fear my answer is going to be: Just wait until midseason!
Once again, as with Awake and Smash on NBC and Alcatraz on Fox, some of my most visceral and enthusiastic knee-jerk responses ...
ABC's fall lineup will include seven new shows, featuring a second comedy block on Tuesdays.
Tim Allen's sitcom, Last Man Standing, will anchor Tuesdays at 8/7c, leading into another new comedy, Man Up.
