Interesting story on this seasons new shows

Kristin from E!online put had this. It's a look at the chances of this seasons new shows of another season.
http://www.eonline.com/Gossip/Kristi...3/030307b.html


Already Granted Another Season: The Surreal Life, High School Reunion, Life with Bonnie, Joe Millionaire, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, Less Than Perfect.

No Need to Worry: Everwood, Without a Trace, Half and Half and CSI: Miami

Pray for Them: Boomtown, American Dreams, My Big Fat Greek Life, Dragnet, Hack, Star Search, Still Standing.

Flip a Coin: Fastlane, Good Morning, Miami, Cedric the Entertainer Presents, Greetings from Tucson, The Twilight Zone, What I Like About You, John Doe, Kingpin.

Don't Hold Your Breath: Are You Hot?, Mister Sterling, Do Over, Hidden Hills.

Good as Gone: I'm a Celebrity--Get Me Out of Here!, A.U.S.A., Miracles, Veritas, Family Affair, Abby.

This is kind of sad. I don't watch anything from the group that's already coming back.

Without a Trace and CSI:Miami are the only ones from the second group I watch.

I wouldn't be shocked if NBC cancelled Boomtown just very disappointed. I can't believe ABC is going to cancel Dragnet though considering how much they've built it up and it's winning it's timeslot rather easily.

I think the fact that Miracles is in the good as gone category is a shame. ABC never gave this show a chance and killed it when they took it off for their Michael Jackson interview and a repeat of the Bachelorette finale.

How can they re-do Joe Millionaire? Seems like a one time thing to me.

also... I hope ABC brings the Mole back... by far the best and most intelligent reallity show there is.

I think the deal with joe millionaire is that they actually taped 2 or 3 of them before the first one aired, just in case it went over well....

I've already showered ABC with praise for their faith in their new Tuesday line-up. Now it's time for NBC to step up and show some faith in Sunday nights and renew Boomtown and American Dreams as well as Mr. Sterling on Fridays.

For my money, the three biggest surprises this season have been Everwood, American Dreams, and Mr. Sterling. I pretty much expected all three of these shows to suck, and yet they've proved to not only be good new shows but some of the best stuff all season. It's good to see the WB recognizes what they have with Everwood; now it's NBC's turn. Despite their love affair with endlessly extending hasbeen sit-coms, they've stumbled onto some very good dramas. How about you let some stay around a while? And while you're at it, don't go ditching Ed either.

Boomtown is a great show, but I never seem to be home when it's on.

I hope Boomtown doesn't get screwed. It has most television critics praise. It's a good show, and only gets better as they continue to dive into the characters with more side stories.

Please don't let John Doe get the boot. It's one of the better shows this season, so naturally FOX would give it the Friday night death slot. I swear if Fastlane gets renewed and JD doesn't, I'm gonna go ballistic! Of course, it will probably be replaced by "Who Wants To Marry An American Idol".

I would think that abc will renew Dragnet since Alias is not doing as well ratings wise and that got picked up.

If they cancel John Doe I don't see how they can not cancel Fastlane since Doe's numbers are better than Fastlane's.

Too bad Miracles is doing so poorly - though not a surprise.

Sabrina the thirtysomething Witch isn't on the copping block? I hope it isn't renewed.

And What I Like About You is on "flip a coin??" What is wrong with people! This show is brilliant! Amanda Bynes is the funniest female actress capable of doing variety since Carol Burnett. She should have the highest rated show on Friday night if there was justice in the world!

UHHH.....No. They are doing it again, but they said its not going to be the same way as the first one for obvious reasons.

If NBC cancels American Dreams and Boomtown while continually sinking millions into a tired and crappy Friends, I'll be really pissed.

I hope Fastlane gets renewed. I think Do Over is probably gone - the WB never gave it a chance which sucks since I think it was the best new comedy.

I am hoping more people start watching MIRACLES!!! but renewal doesn't look good. Miracles and The Mole are about the only thing I watch on the Alphabet channel. Don't take both of them away!!
ABC looks so late into the reality series though The Mole is a great show. It seems to be coming on with a vengence i.e. The Family, All american girl, etc.

I would be TERRIBLY surprised if CBS does not renew My big fat greek life though I yet to see the show, it is doing VERY well.

Isn't Ed being moved to Friday (sorry, I don't watch the show)? That's like the kiss of death.

If it's cancelled, tho, it would make it easier for me to get around town; it's impossible geting to the Post Office when they're filming in town.....

Thanks!!

One thing there blew me away: Judge Judy will make $25M PER YEAR for the next four years! (and HBO is balking at bumping Gandolfini from 400K per ep to 750K per ep for only 13 eps????????)

I know I'm in the minority, but I liked Hidden Hills and Veritas. I'll be (the only one that is) sad if they're gone.

The only show in that entire group I watch is Dragnet. I hope it survives.

I thought My Big Fat Greek Life was such a big hit. Have the ratings disappeared that quickly?

Honk!

Just read this about Boomtown and American Dreams

On NBC, Sunday's standout remains Law & Order: Criminal with a first place 11.8/17 at 9 p.m. -- double its disappointing American Dreams lead-in (5.9/ 8) and 42 percent above lead-out Boomtown (#1: 8.3/13). Without ABC's The Practice in the 10 p.m. mix, Boomtown is now winning the hour -- an obvious notch in the renewal belt for next season.
