TV talk

For those that care, the network upfronts are going on this week, and an easy way to track what's going on is available.

Items of personal note so far:
NBC: West Wing is renewed, but moving to Sunday at 8. I anticipate this to be the last season of the show. Wihle teppanyaki and few of my other friends will disagree, I see no use for The Office having been renewed. And I wonder if icaleb still has a job on Biggest Loser? No new shows sound that intriguing to me.
ABC: ABC is proving to be a strong contender on Sunday nights still. Not sure about moving Lost to 9 pm and ditching Alias. I mean, I understand wanting to take your hits and spread them out to anchor other nights, but that was a powerful block. There's no way I can see Geena Davis as POTUS, and I wonder what Rob Lurie was thinking...
WB: zzzzzzzzzz....  Oh, wait, Jennifer Esposito? Cool.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
Fox rumours: 24 renewed for two years. I like the show and all, but how many of these can they realisitically pump out?
CBS rumours: It's either be Joan of Arcadia or Judging Amy, but not both. Having not watched Amy, I vote Joan. I guess we'll know tomorrow for sure. And Amazing Race better bo on that schedule, dangit.
UPN rumours: Uhm... er... I got nothing. I'm guessing Veronica Mars will be renewed [EDIT: Thanks to pettitte96 for pointing out it was renewed a few weeks ago], and am very curious to see their schedule without WWE [EDIT: ...and that's still a rumour, which skykid reminded me of] and Star Trek.

Survivor doesn't have the legs it once did though. For example, they LOST the ratings game on their Sunday finale against Desparate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy.

That being said, it's likely this might be the last season of Alias too... Alias just hasn't been water cooler talk, and Survivor is, despite it's weakened state. I would be interested in getting more detailed demos for the two shows to see if there is strong overlap though...

Yeah, very true. I figured it would have a tough time on Sunday. But overall Survivor is still at top 10 show even after 5 seasons or whatever it's at. Finally Alias had some strength, when paired with a good, hot show. And what do they do? Toss it out so soon. Oh well. I have no faith in any networks anyway.. they all suck. LOL
