  • i thought unforgettable was canned

    • It is, but CBS has not yet announced their new schedule. That’s why CBS and ABC both still have their old schedules posted. It will be updated as soon as the schedules are announced.

    • As denoted twice above, last season’s programming is denoted in light gray, purely as reference.

      • Matt, when is ABC releasing their schedule?

        • I’m not Matt ;) but ABC’s upfront presentation is tomorrow so I would maybe keep an eye out for the schedule today but expect it for sure sometime tomorrow. =)

          • ABC indeed released a press release saying they’d release the 2012-2013 fall schedule after upfronts on Tuesday the 15th.

      • I wonder if CBS will give CSI:NY the old Miami timeslot. It’ll be either a lifesaver or a life sinker. I mean, it can give the classic procedural fans the CSI option to watch, and it would move the CSI:NY fans to Sunday, or it’ll only get the rabid Miami fans mad for the loss of their show not to watch. I wish they’d move it, though. I think it would help their game up and possibly help them get a 10th season! :)

    • NBC Canceled both shows, sadly.

      Comment by Ahmed – May 14, 2012 05:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • It doesn’t make sense…they cancelled “Harry’s Law” but kept “30 Rock with Brian Williams” which was getting much worse ratings than “Harry’s Law”??? I suppose because it costs less to produce a news magazine than an hour-long drama. Too bad…when is the last time NBC had an Oscar winner starring in a series?

        Comment by Gwen – May 15, 2012 08:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • NBC has terrible judgment on these things. They might be doomed. Awake was really a great show, and Harry’s Law…….. Now, they’ve got Community on Friday nightand after Whitney. Are they deliberately trying to kill their shows? They suck. And worse, I don’t see anything in the new lineups that look good enough to replace the shows that are being cancelled. Idiots.

          • NBC better not cancel grimm. NBC has a habit of doing that.

          • As of right now, I only watch The Voice and Go On, on NBC. However , once DWTS starts, that’s the end of The Voice. When is Smash starting ? You’re right, NBC is not what it used to be.

    • i was stunned to see one of the reasons harrys law was cancelled. was it really because most of the veiwing aud. is old??? people want to boycot nbc is this gonna be necessary??

      Comment by barbara – July 10, 2012 08:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yes, and a lot of us “old” people who watch shows like Harry’s Law spend more money on advertiser’s products than a lot of their younger viewers.

        • The new schedule is there. Ringer isn’t because it was cancelled. Hart of Dixie changed nights I believe. Anyway, whatever is up there is right.

    • yeah they cancelled the secret circle because they think all these reality shows are better evryone i talk to would much rather have a liitle fantasy in there lives instead of watching some one elses drama man i would rather watch soap operas than this stupid reality shows and i hate soap operas i dont remember who had merlin one but they cancelled that two and syfy picked it up maybe syfy, tnt, amc, a&e, bbc will pick it up they seem to have the best shows on any more.

          • Cablevision customers are losing the CW which means NO Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, Supernatural, 90210, etc.

      • Glee used to be up against American Idol and NCIS it would be interesting to see what its numbers would be if they ever put it where it would be top dog

      • Invest in a DVR that will record two shows at once. That way you don’t have to choose.

        Comment by Paul – May 14, 2012 01:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Note: Glee is online 8 days AFTER original air date. So, you’ll always be 1 week behind. Grey’s is online less than 24 hours after air.

  • Wow. This looks bad. And four nights of singing competitions? Yikes! When are they going to reach over-saturation? No wonder more and more people are flocking to cable. Network tv is becoming more and more unwatcheable each season…

  • Desperate Housewives? Last night was the SERIES finale!! Missing/Charlies Angels were both CANCELLED. Maybe you should be up-to-date before you put things out there for the public to read.

    Comment by Karen – May 14, 2012 05:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • They will update it once ABC, CBS and the CW announce their new lineups….that’s why the old schedules are still there. Those schedules have not been announced yet.

      Comment by anonymous – May 14, 2012 05:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Maybe, Karen, if you read what it said before the schedule was displayed – “Programming for the 2012-13 TV season is shown in bold, with new series in red. And merely as reference, scheduling from the TV season gone by is denoted in light grey text.” – you’d understand that the old schedules were there for reference. And then, you know, you’d be up-to-date before you put things out there for the public to read. /burn

  • Angry about glees change of time, it’s stupid to have it up against grey’s – grey’s ratings are seriously going to suffer :/ Especially as this depends on who Shonda kills off…she’s going to lose lots of vieers.

    Comment by Vicky – May 14, 2012 07:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I consider myself a Glee fan. Sort of. I guess. But if fans think Grey’s is worth the time now and they also watch Glee, they’ll most definitely choose Grey’s over it. Out of every show I watch, I would choose the other show over Glee unless it’s a non-serialized procedural like Bones or Castle. Well, I dunno, maybe I’ll watch Bones and Castle over Glee. I guess. I dunno. Okay, I would watch Glee over a reality show I hate, like anything with the Kardashians, The Bachelor(ette), etc. Yeah. I can say that with confidence.

      Comment by TigerNightmare – May 17, 2012 10:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I completely agree! I have followed Glee from the start, but they should have just ended it this season. I will be tuning in to Grey’s over Glee. I will probably still buy the music but I will just catch the fourth season on DVD or online later

        Comment by Roger – May 17, 2012 11:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Does it really matter what night its on or what its up against? Does anyone watch tv as it airs anymore? The only thing I watch as it airs is sports. I watch all my shows on Hulu+, VOD or dvr. Maybe I’m why so many shows get cancelled.

    • And I ALWAYS DVR sports and let them get about an hour ahead so I can skip the commercials. Best way to watch football and golf.

  • Oh God!!!! I’m praying Castle doesn’t get moved to that ridiculous 8pm Thursday slot!!! There’s just way too much competition there and ratings are bound to go down!!! C’mon ABC don’t be stupid!!!!! 10pm Mondays are just fine!!

  • BAD move Glee!! Going up against Grey’s and NBC comedy Thursdays. What were they thinking? And seriously, FOX gave up Alcatraz (so disappointed by that cancellation) for something called Mob Doctor! Good thing they still have New Girl or I would not watch FOX at all.

    Comment by smidnite – May 14, 2012 08:56 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Did it ever occur to anyone that if there is a chance that Castle may move, that Grey’s has a chance of moving to a different night and timeslot as well? ABC may just move things around, so it could be that FOX knows something we don’t when it comes to moving Glee to that time slot. I could be wrong, so we will just have to wait and see.

    Comment by Ing – May 14, 2012 09:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It would be a mistake to move Grey’s, I think. It’s still a high rating show for ABC and they don’t really have anything else to anchor Thursdays right now. And Castle shouldn’t be on before 10, anyway, so keeping it Monday’s after DWTS makes sense. I really hope they don’t move either shows.

  • Thank you!Thank you! Thank you for doing this grid! I’ll have to keep checking it out to as you update it. Are you going to bookmark it at the top like the renewal scorecard is?

    Comment by Robin – May 14, 2012 10:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope ABC moves “the Middle” to Tuesdays & pairs it with “Last Man Standing”. I think they would compliment each other (even though I don’t watch either). Selfishly I would LOVE to have Suburgatory, Modern Family, Apt 23, Happy Endings & Revenge on one nite – I wouldn’t even have to change the channel! :)

    I’m bummed “Missing” was cancelled – I was starting to enjoy it. Maybe they didn’t know where else to take it. Maybe ABC should just go back to Grey’s, PP and have Scandal at 10/9c. Would work for me.

    Hey ABC exec – ever think of giving Missing another shot on Sundays 10/9c? Might work with a good lead in at 8/9c.

On the one hand, the TVLine team in all their amazing brilliance are saving me a ton of time, but on the other, my yearly Excel spreadsheet of the Fall TV schedule has always been my own special badge of nerdy honor!

  • So “Community” will be on at 8:30 (or 7:30 my time) on Fridays, then. Got it. *Makes note*
    So far no real interest in any of the new shows at this time, but that could change down the line. Will be interested to see how the schedule’s fleshed out when everything is set in stone with other shows that will be returning next fall, then I can make my viewing plans accordingly :D.

    • As noted above, the shows in grey are just a reference for what was there in the 2011-2012 season. Shows in black (bold) are returning shows in their time spot for the 2012-2013 season and shows in red are new. I’m sure as upfronts happen and schedules are released the grid will be updated.

  • Why is NBC launching their potential big hit at 10pm on Mondays? Do they not see the competition that night? Makes no sense..

    • My only guess is they are hoping to capitilze on the lead in numbers from The Voice. Otherwise dumb move.

  • Glee against Grey’s? bwaaahahahaha. That will be an interesting ratings fight as I’m pretty sure they share the exact same audience. Bold move, Fox. Bold move. Thank goodness Community doesn’t have to stress being in that fight. They only have to stress airing on a night when nobody watches television and having Whitney as their lead-in. Yep, I still feel bitter. [Sigh].

  • Certain shows on the US networks play out on CTV, CBC or Global in Canada. Good to see Person of Interest back, but can’t believe Fox axed The Finder and Alcatraz. Duh! And not we have a firefighter show? Let’s give the viewers out there something different for a change. NYC 22 is not unlike Rookie Blue, with both shows having characters who are not believeable as police officers. Yet both highlight the major police forces in the USA and Canada (NY City and Toronto). That’s why I also like what HBO brings to the table with shows like True Blood, Girls, Game of Thrones. Why don’t the major networks start getting into 21st century mode. And not be about demographics, and selling 30 second spots. It’s about the entertainment. Look at shows like Gunsmoke that ran so many seasons. Or why Survivor is about to mark No. 25. I’m a baby boomer, and that demographic is the majority in North America. Look to that market, not the kids of 18 and 22. They are not watching TV like I might have done back then, when we had fewer channels, and shows like Cannon and Bonanza. :) Not unlike reading a newspaper which I do, but I know my kids and the younger generation don’t. Bones, Criminal Minds, CSI…strong TV staples. Same goes for the NCIS franchises, or the revamped Hawaii 5-0 (which makes the original look campy when I watch it on ME-TV). Now there’s a channel that I watch a lot more of thanks to the old shows of my youth, like Rifleman, Cannon, Gunsmoke, Get Smart, Honey West, Wild Wild West and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, or Perry Mason and Rockford Files. PVRing really helps now.
