Here’s our fully-updated 2012 fall schedule for what’s premiering on TV, and when. We will update it regularly, along with the subscribable calendar. Check back often!
A week full of finales brought good news for some (‘Once Upon A Time’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘NCIS’), and not so good news for others (‘Suburgatory’, ’30 Rock’, ‘Community’, ‘Touch’).
As upfront week hits, almost all of the renewals and cancellations have been announced. This week we run through which shows will be returning, and which will be readying those complete series DVD sets.
As we head to the finish line for the season, more renewals are rolling in. CW has given golden tickets to ‘Vampire Diaries’, ‘Supernatural’, and ‘90210’, while HBO has tapped both ‘Veep’ and ‘Girls’ for second seasons.
Last week brought a rare sighting to broadcast television, in the form of the lowest rated dramatic premiere ever. Amazingly, that was followed by a renewal for the lowest rated show on another network. Meanwhile, over on cable, the going was also slow for the latest from HBO.
The big story last week was the premiere of ‘Mad Men’, which returned from an extended hiatus to record viewing levels. Over on the networks, week two of ‘Touch’ raises some questions and the prospects for ‘Community’ continue to improve.
ABC and FOX had big premieres for ‘Dancing With The Stars’ and ‘Touch’ last week, but both were overshadowed by the crazy numbers AMC brought in with the season finale of ‘The Walking Dead’.
