    I think there are a couple of different trends at play here and they’re all becoming clear with the different schedules being presented this week – the network sitcom is “back” (even though it didn’t really ever go anywhere — but look at Modern Family, Parks & Rec, Big Bang, etc. to see why there will be even more of them next year), and other standard shows are falling – legends like Law & Order, Lost or 24, and even American Idol is on decline. This should be an interesting year for upfronts, and even more so for new shows in general. I’m looking forward to fall (for a first time in a long time!) http://thesmogger.com/2010/05/17/next-years-tv-now/

    I’m excited for Undercovers, just because of the creator… but all of these regular season shows shows EXCEPT Outlaw look like rotten garbage. And Outlaw is in the friday night death slot, so we won’t be seeing that for more than a season.
