New Fall Dramas

So which of the Fall's new drama shows are likely to stick around? "Revolution" is the only one that has scored a full season order thus far. CBS' "Elementary" and The CW's "Arrow" however look like certainties to get at least one full season.

The fate of "Nashville," "Chicago Fire," "Vegas" and "Beauty and the Beast" remain up in the air. "Last Resort" and "666 Park Avenue" are not looking good, while it's a shock "The Mob Doctor" hasn't already been cancelled. [Source: Examiner]
