A brief explanation of the watch list:

New shows premiere dates / status - consider this the neutral zone, detailing the premiere dates for new shows and tidbits of info which could forecast a move to another category.

Shows likely to be axed - their numbers aren't good, news stories point to it being yanked, it may soon end up in the cancelled category.

NEW Series Pickups- this doesn't mean it is renewed for next year, just that the series has gotten a full season order. (e.g., 'back nine' pickup).

Likely pickups - the numbers are good, all we need is the confirmation from the network (again, this is for full season orders, not renewals).

Renewed - Will be back next season (new or older shows).

Series death watch - they've been on the air and their time may be coming. We watch and wait... (new or older shows)

All other series premiere dates - Just what it says. These aren't new series, but their premiere dates are listed and updated, just as an added service to you, my loyal readers and googlers passing by...

** New this year, I will be tracking the reality shows as well as scripted

I like this new format. Thanks so much for keeping this list for us - it is so helpful! And let's hope the "Shows Likely to be axed" list is a lot shorter than last season's.

Jill Golick said...

I love this list. Thank you.

Serenity Now! said...

If I am correct, I believe this is the last season of SCRUBS.

Josh said...

I guess this isn't official or anything, but at the TV academy panel on Dexter I went to a few weeks ago, one of the Showtime execs said that Dexter will be renewed for a third season.

Mel said...

Great list! Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Can you explain the situation for "Life"? Has it been renewed for a new season, or is it just a completion of the original order?
How many episodes are ordered?

Carlo Conda said...

Nooo, don't track the reality shows! They're the debbul!

Classic Wines said...

Very comprehensive guide! I'm glad I stopped by.

Emily Blake said...

Well crap. This means I will be forced to watch Lifetime. Blech.

Why, Project Runway, why?
