Upfront Week has come, gone and left millions of dazed TV Fanatics in its wake.
With a slew of new programs headed to your television this fall - from dramas to sitcoms, superheroes to hostage takers - it can be confusing to decide where your priorities lie. So let's take a look at some of the more intriguing head-to-head battles, shall we?
In this first new show-down of the 2013-2014 schedule, we focus on Monday nights at 10.

CBS has released promotional videos for six of its eight new series premiering next season. The network opted to post behind-the-scenes videos rather than traditional trailers. Included is The Millers with Will Arnett, Mom with Anna Faris, The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams and Hostages with Toni Collette. Cam Gigandet’s legal drama Reckless and the ensemble comedy Friends with Better Live are not included. Watch the clips below. Enjoy!
This heavily serialized thriller is set for a limited run of 15 episodes. Starring Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan, Hostages has been compared in spirit to an extended arc from Person of Interest. Like Showtime’s Homeland, the new series is based on an Israeli series by Alon Aranya, Omri Givon and Rotem Shamir. The show’s plot centers on a family wrapped up in a mass political conspiracy that is poised to change their lives forever.
Hostages airs mondays at 10 p. »

"Hostages" isn't your typical CBS drama. For starters, it stars Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan, new faces to the No. 1 network. And in an unprecedented twist by CBS's standards, the show is incredibly serialized and will only run 15 episodes during its first season.
In "Hostages," Collette plays a renowned surgeon tasked with operating on the president of the United States. Prior to the operation, her family is taken hostage by a rogue FBI agent, played by McDermott. Collette, who previously starred as a woman with multiple personality disorder on the Showtime comedy "United States of Tara," said many factors drew her to the drama.
"I think it's the brilliant writing" she told The Huffington Post at the CBS 2013 upfront red carpet. "And a chance to play one character. [Laughs.] I just really loved the world. I loved that I didn't know what was happening, »

Next fall will see ABC stretching one night at a bar into an entire multi-episode rom-com, while CBS details two harrowing weeks in the lives of Toni Collette and a non-pants-less Dylan McDermott. Now CBS boss Nina Tassler is ready to make condensed storytelling the Next Big Thing for the 2013-14 seasons (along with bionically enhanced cops and Robin Williams nattering away to himself about God knows what), confirming that the events of How I Met Your Mother’s ninth and final season will take place over the course of a single weekend. “The longest wedding weekend ever,” according to »
CBS has a ton of big name stars joining their roster in the fall -- but do their shows live up to their talent?The network unveiled trailers for series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robin Williams, Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott, Anna Faris, Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O'Connell, Will Arnett, Josh Holloway and Marg Helgenberger.While the trailers are very hit and miss, seeing the former "Buffy" star opposite the zany Williams is definitely an interesting combination. Add some footage of Kelly Clarkson cracking up on set while filming the pilot and "The Crazy Ones" may be the network's top offering.Check out the promos below, with the aforementioned David E. Kelley dramedy and "Hostages" standing out as the most promising shows.Click here to see NBC's trailers for shows with Michael J.

Who says CBS doesn’t make bold programming moves? Oh, that’s right: Everyone. But everyone would be slightly wrong! At yesterday’s upfront presentation, the nation’s most-watched — if least-interesting — broadcast television network surprised reporters by revealing that it was not green-lighting two high-profile potential series: A small screen revival of Beverly Hills Cop from executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) starring Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Axel Foley and a recurring Eddie Murphy; and NCIS: Red, starring John Corbett and Kim Raver. Beverly Hills Cop might find a home elsewhere, while NCIS: Red was deemed unworthy »

CBS’ fall schedule includes a few big moves, surprisingly. Hawaii Five-0 gets demoted to Friday nights, with two shows taking its place on Monday nights — Intelligence, with Josh Holloway as a “high-tech intelligence operative with a super-computer microchip in his brain” (it also stars Tbl-fave Michael Rady but I don’t know if Rady can get me past that premise). Also Hostages, a limited series about a surgeon (Toni Colette) who is blackmailed into assassinating the President by Dylan McDermott. They’re also adding an hour of comedy on Thursday nights.
According to Deadline, while NBC is debating if it will order a second season of Hannibal it already has a cable network interested in picking it up. I’d be incredibly amused if that network turned out to be TNT. »

One of three new dramas coming to CBS is "Hostages," starring Toni Collette as a high-profile surgeon who is taken hostage and told she will kill the President of the United States or the hostage-takers will kill her family.
It's part political thriller, part family drama, starring Dylan McDermott as the lead hostage-taker -- who also happens to be an FBI agent. Tate Donovan plays Collette's husband. "Hostages" comes to us courtesy of Jerry Bruckheimer, the man behind such dramas as "CSI" and "Without a Trace."
Watch the trailer above and tell us what you think. "Hostages" will air on Monday nights at 10 p.m. Et/Pt on CBS in the fall. »
There's no network cockier than CBS during upfront week, and with good reason. Sure, they had to cancel last season's newbies "Vegas," "Golden Boy" "Made in Jersey" and "Partners," but their schedule is so stable -- and dominant in the ratings -- that they never have many holes to fill.
They've only ordered three dramas for the 2013-14 season and just one is on the fall schedule. That's limited series "Hostages" which will air 15 episodes uninterrupted and then turn over its Monday night timeslot to another new drama -- "Intelligence" -- in the winter.
Here's a rundown of the two new dramas CBS presented to advertisers at its 2013 upfront on May 15 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
"Hostages" (Mondays at 10 p.m. Et)
It's an interesting play: a heavily serialized thriller set for a limited cable-style run of 15 episodes that still looks and feels like a CBS procedural. Put another way, »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fourth announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on CBS.
The king of the networks easily remains in charge despite "Elementary" being their only fresh hit of last season's new shows. The network's line-up remains fairly stable with only a few key moves such as Thursday being expanded to include two hours of comedy programming, and "Hawaii Five-0" moving to Fridays.
Several other pilots didn't make the cut this week including the series sequel to the "Beverly Hills Cop" movies, a TV version of the comedy "Bad Teacher", the "NCIS" mobile spin-off "NCIS: Red," a procedural based on Leif G.W. Persson's literary homicide detective Everett Backstrom, the Frank Marshall-produced political thriller "The Ordained" about a priest turned lawyer trying to save his sister from assassination, »

Unlike several of its network rivals, CBS doesn't treat upfronts week as an opportunity to inundate fans with dozens of pictures from its new shows. Instead, CBS has released a baker's dozen new images from six new shows, showcasing stars including Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Josh Holloway, Anna Faris, Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, Tony Shalhoub, Dylan McDermott and more. That means less clicking for y'all. Check out the pictures »

CBS's 2013–14 schedule mostly moves things around on Mondays and Thursdays — that is, it mostly moves around the network's comedies. CBS axed Rules of Engagement and is keeping Mike and Molly off the schedule for a bit, opening up two spots in the Monday lineup currently anchored by How I Met Your Mother (going into its final season) and 2 Broke Girls. On Thursdays the network is programming two hours of comedy instead of one, shifting Person of Interest to Tuesdays for an all-procedural bloc.The network has only three new dramas, just one of which is premiering in the fall: Hostages, with Toni Collette as a surgeon whose family is being held hostage by a rogue FBI agent (Dylan McDermott) until she kills the president, will be on Mondays at 10 p.m. at the beginning of the season, and then later cede its time slot to Intelligence, a super-soldier drama »

Chicago – When you’re the #1 network on TV, it must be tempting to stay the course. However, CBS always shakes things up a bit and this year is no different. The 2013-14 schedule, announced this morning, features four new comedies (including a new comedy block in one of their most successful time slots) and one drama, along with new time slots for big hits “Person of Interest,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Hawaii Five-0.” The five new shows feature a stunning degree of star power with lead roles taken by Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Margo Martindale, Tony Shalhoub, Toni Collette, Will Arnett, Tate Donovan, Allison Janney, and more. It must be nice to be #1.
