Update: Now that the networks have set their schedules for the 2013-14 season, totals and percentages changed to reflect the current status of each show.
It is no secret that this has not been a banner year for broadcast television.
The narrative that, on the business side at least, this has been a down season for traditional network TV is not just hype. Compared to this time last season, all five English-language broadcast networks are drawing smaller ratings among adults 18-49, the age group that drives the bulk of advertiser spending.
The drops range from trifling (CBS is down from a 3.0 last year to a 2.9, NBC from 2.5 to 2.4) to alarming (Fox has lost seven tenths of a point, going from 3.2 last season to 2.5 now). Three networks -- ABC, Fox and NBC -- are also drawing smaller total audiences, while CBS and The CW have posted just modest gains of 220,000 and 70,000 viewers. »
While pilots for "The Selection" and "Delirium" were not picked up by their respective networks, The CW did move forward with the adaptation of another Young Adult novel - one that hasn't even been released yet - called "The 100" by Kass Morgan. ... Eliza Taylor (newcomer) as Clarke, Paige Turco (“Person of Interest,” “Damages”) as Abby, Thomas McDonell (“Suburgatory”) as Finn, Eli Goree (“Emily Owens, M.D.”) as Wells, Marie Avgeropoulos (“50/50“) as Octavia, Bob Morley (newcomer) as Bellamy, Kelly Hu (“X2: X-Men United,” “Arrow”) as Cece, Christopher Larkin (“Squad 85”) as Monty, Devon Bostick (“Aim High”) as Jasper, with Isaiah Washington (upcoming “Blue Caprice,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) as Chancellor Jaha, and Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Scandal”) as Kane. Based on the upcoming book series by Kass Morgan, The 100 is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Matthew Miller (“Human Ta. »
The CW is holding both "Star-Crossed" and "The 100" in reserve for mid-season duty, but during the recent TV Upfronts they released a few photos from each show's pilot, and we have a look at them all right here.
Both series have a sci-fi tinge, but "The 100" especially, with its post-apocalyptic setting and the presence of Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Scandal”), has our attention for sure. And while "Star-Crossed" definitely seems to appeal to the more romantic types among us, it has a lot of familiar faces and could be worth watching for one or two episodes at least.
So while you're here, check out the photos below (top row from "The 100" and bottom from "Star-Crossed"). For more info visit "The 100" and "Star-Crossed" on Cwtv.com, and follow "The 100" (@cwthe100) and "Star-Crossed" (@CWStarCrossed) on Twitter.

Take a breath an relax, Supernatural fans. The next season of your favorite spooky show is not in danger, but the CW is making a little change from business as usual. Supernatural is moving to Tuesdays. Let us school you on all the pending time shifts.
Yes, in case there was any doubt, you will also see the Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals on Tuesday nights, following Supernatural at its new time. The spin-off is definitely a reality. Hey, maybe Supernatural fans will start watching.
You will notice that Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast are also relocating. In the new schedule, that pair happens on Monday nights. The Carrie Diaries switches to Fridays, but we aren’t positive about Nikita‘s schedule because the spy show’s final six-episode season is short and will happen sometime “late in the fall,” network boss Mark Pedowitz said to TVLine. »

The CW is no longer the home of rich kids behaving badly. With "Gossip Girl" and "90210" both coming to an end this season, the new series orders for 2013-14 look to build on the baby network's success with "Vampire Diaries," "Arrow" and veteran "Supernatural."
Sci-fi and fantasy mixed with an occasional period drama represent the new world order at CW (no "Emily Owens, M.D." this season), which was the only broadcast network to completely revamp its schedule for fall.
Audiences have already had a peek at one of the newbies -- "Vampire Diaries" spinoff "The Originals" aired as a backdoor pilot in April -- while another is a remake of a cult favorite and yet another is based on a young adult book series.
Here's a rundown of the five new dramas The CW presented to advertisers at its 2013 upfront on May 16 at New York City Center.
The CW has long been one of the best supporters of Our Kind of Shows, and at this year’s Upfronts they put even more money where our hearts are. Of the six new shows announced for the fall and winter schedule, four are for us: The Originals, The Tomorrow People, The 100, and Star-Crossed. Now of course more than one has that trademark The CW soap opera-ish spin on it, but hey, not Every show is for every one of us.
Here to assist in our prejudging are synopses for all, via Deadline, and maybe even better, clips and/or TV spots. There’s not really anything new for The Originals, but fans will want to see it all again anyway. The Tomorrow People features the wonderful Mark Pellegrino so it’s my favorite of the four.

The network has also released trailers which you can watch below. Let us know which shows you are interested in watching.
The Originals – Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever.

When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he »
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fifth and final one announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on The CW.
After targeting teen girls for so long, The CW has widened their demographic focus and in the process have improved their fortunes with three of their five new shows from last year returning. One in particular, "Arrow," has been a big hit for them. As a result this year's line-up sticks heavily with genre fare - sci-fi, supernatural, and even a period piece.
The network's troubled "Nikita" has scored a six episode third season order to wrap up its story lines, no word on when those episodes will air just yet. In fact, specific premiere dates for all their shows have yet to be set.

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

With the spring TV season coming to an end that means networks are either renewing or cancelling their shows for the upcoming fall season. This year there have been a few surprises. Some shows came to an early end despite being great television (USA please pick up Happy Endings!) and other shows came to an end after not making any kind of impact whatsoever (I’m looking at you Family Tools). But don’t fret because plenty of shows are coming back for another season. Take a look below to see if your favourite TV show will be returning next year or if it's been cut from the schedule...

NBC has released a trailer for its new drama series "The Blacklist," and if the show as a whole lives up to these four minutes of footage, it's understandable why the network gave it arguably the best available timeslot it has.
The series stars James Spader ("The Office," "Boston Legal") as Raymond Reddington, a former government operative turned most wanted criminal. He turns himself into the FBI and offers to help catch a terrorist -- on the condition that his only contact in the agency is a profiler (Megan Boone) who is just out of the academy.
"The Blacklist" is set to air at 10 p.m. Et Mondays, following "The Voice," in the fall.

Deadline first reported the news that CBS would order the multicamera sitcom to series ahead of the network's upfronts presentation to advertisers on May 15.
CBS's "Mom," starring Anna Faris as a newly sober single mom who blames her problems on her own mother (Allison Janney), has maintained its buzz throughout the pilot season race, and was considered by many to be an early lock for a pickup thanks to the caliber of Lorre and its cast.
