FOX "upfront" coverage introduction

by Paul William Tenny

FOX logoA general introduction to this coverage can be found in the NBC intro post (along with links to the NBC posts). This post has links to all of the FOX pages and also lists shows that have been canceled, renewed, and shows "on the bubble". FOX has fewer new shows that NBC does, mostly due to NBC's massive pile of pilots for mid-season replacements (but also because NBC needs more new hit shows than anyone else, and has more pilots in play.)

Obviously not all of these shows will go to series, and even fewer will make it to a full season. Probably two will make it to a second season.

It's a brutal business, and FOX is the most mercenary of them all.

FOX's upfront presentation is May 17th, the same day as NBC's.

Canceled: 24, Dollhouse, Our Little Genius, Past Life, Sit Down Shut Up, and 'Till Death.

On the bubble: America's Most Wanted: America Strikes Back, Bones, Brothers, House, Human Target, Lie to Me, Sons of Tuscon, The Wanda Sykes Show.

Renewed: American Dad, American Idol, The Cleveland Show, Family Guy, Fringe, Glee, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, The Simpsons.

Update (May 13th): Lie to Me and Human Target have reportedly been renewed. Keep watching The Media Pundit for new information on all the new, returning, and canceled shows.
