    Which TV Shows Have Been Renewed, Which Have Been Canceled, And Which Ones Are We Waiting To Hear About?

    Nashville is renewed, y'all! And in a shock, so is Community! But Happy Endings is gone. Here's what's happened so far across all the networks, and what's still up in the air as the networks prepare for the upfronts beginning on May 13.

    Every year in mid-May, the broadcast networks — NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS, and the CW — roll out their new schedules and new shows to advertisers. It used to also be a time when shows on the bubble would learn of their fates. That last practice has become less dramatic in recent years, as most of the networks now favor early renewals for shows that are both obvious hits (NCIS) and ones with passionate, smaller fan bases: Parenthood on NBC, for example, is usually a nail-biter, but this year, NBC went ahead and picked it up early for a full 22 episodes. (Whew!)

    Here are links to the network-by-network posts about the new shows. I've been updating them with the trailers and with my reactions to them.
