Ok, so let’s talk about this schedule.

SHOWS RENEWED:

    Friday Night Lights – Renewed but moved to Friday night?!!! What?!! Talk about killing the show. Seriously, we all know that the shows that air on Fridays are usually not very successful.
    Heroes – No surprise there! But still, it’s nice to know I will still be able to count on Heroes on Monday nights.
    Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order – No surprises there either. If you remember yesterday’s post, I already mentioned the renewal of Law & Order, as well as the move of Law & Order: CI to USA.
    My Name Is Earl, 30 Rock, The Office, Scrubs, ER – YES!!!! Thursday Nights are intact with all my favorite shows back. The only downside is that Scrubs only got a renewal of 18 episodes instead of 22 like most other shows.
    Medium – I am a fan of Medium, so this is good news of course, but I am not sure a move to Sunday night, against Desperate Housewives I might add, is the best choice. Oh well, worse comes to worse we at least get one more season.

SHOWS THAT GOT CANCELED 🙁 :

This might hurt, so wear your helmets!

    Crossing Jordan – Apparently NBC could not find a spot for the show, so it canceled it. I personally never watched the Crossing Jordan, but I am sorry for all its fans out there.
    Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip – Well, I guess this comes as no surprise, but it still hurts when it’s official. I guess I can take comfort into the fact that starting May 24th we will see the final six episodes of the series.


NEW SHOWS:

    Life – Damien Lewis is a former police officer who, after years of false imprisonment, returns to the force with a decidedly different philosophy.
    Chuck – Zachary Levi (Less Than Perfect) plays Chuck, a nerdy computer tech who downloads the CIA’s database into his head. He is then recruited by John Casey (Adam Baldwin) a veteran NSA Agent, for espionage work with his new partner Sarah (Yvonne Strzechowski). Brought to us by The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz, and director McG.
    Journeyman – Dan Vasser (Kevin McKidd, “Rome”), a San Francisco newspaper reporter and family man begins to travel through time and change people’s lives.
    Bionic Woman – Jamie Sommers is a normal working woman. However, her life takes a whole new turn when she receives bionic body parts after a terrible car accident in order to save her life.
    Lipstick Jungle – This show follows three high-powered friends (including Kim Raver and Brooke Shields) as they weather the ups and downs of lives lived at the top of their game in New York City.
    The IT Crowd – Based on the critically acclaimed British comedy, The IT Crowd gives us a humorous behind-the-scenes look at the people who truly keep the office humming, tekkies.
    The Singing Bee – A variety-competition show that challenges contestants to accurately sing the lyrics to popular songs – even when the band stops playing.
