In just two weeks, the broadcast networks (and a few cable channels) will announce their lineups for the 2013-14 season. We'll get our first looks at new shows for next season then, along with schedules for the fall and beyond.
Before the upfronts start, though, it's helpful to know -- which series the networks have already picked up for next season. In some cases -- particularly at CBS and at Fox -- there won't be »
The lineups are set, the new shows are ordered and the broadcast networks are starting to gear up for another season.
Here's your first look at how the networks will stack up against one another in the fall. For the most part, the biggest shows -- like "The Big Bang Theory," "The Voice" and "Modern Family" -- are staying in their familiar timeslots, but the nets have done a good amount of timeslot shuffling with returning series and added more than 20 new shows to the mix as well -- including Fox's "Almost Human," pictured above.
It's never too early to start planning your DVR strategy for the fall. This should help. Take a look at the prime-time grid for ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW in fall 2013 (roll your mouse over a day to see that night's schedule).

While The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad have already been renewed for 2013-14, Bob's Burgers has not. Last season was down in the ratings -- will this season fall lower and see the show cancelled or will the numbers rise instead? We'll have to wait and see how things go.
Below are the TV show's ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Bob's Burgers is going to be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season.

Episode 03-23: Sunday, 05/12/13
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on Fox.
While "The Following" proved a breakout winner, Fox had few success stories last season. So, it is going a bit more ambitious this year with numerous dramas, comedies and one-off "event series".
Several pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the family of government-sanctioned assassins drama "Boomerang," the adaptation of Lauren Oliver's book trilogy "Delirium" about a world where love is illegal, the legal interns workplace comedy "To My Assistant," the U.S.S. Lexington-set "The Wild Blue," and "The List" about the hunt for a thief who stole a file containing the secret identities of people in the Witness Security Program,

Every week, Vulture faces the big, important questions in entertainment and comes to some creative conclusions. This week, we gave you the scoop on The Great Gatsby, looked at the state of the four major networks, and looked backwards at both the style of Robert Downey Jr. and the musical stylings of Baz Luhrmann. You may have read some of these stories below, but you certainly didn’t read them all. We forgive you.Q: Is The Great Gatsby as good of a book as everyone thinks it is?A: No! At least according to our book critic, Kathryn Schulz, who writes very convincingly about why she does not like the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Q: Fine, fine. But what about the movie?A: David Edelstein is mixed on the film, but comes out on the pro side. Sort of. Q: What are the ten best songs to have played on Bob's Burgers? »

Ever since Fred Flintstone pretended to be "Rock Roll" on The Flintstones, original songs have increasingly become a staple in animated television. (See: The Simpsons.) The current king of surprisingly catchy, unsurprisingly funny musical moments is Bob's Burgers, where a new song is basically guaranteed each episode. Like the show itself, Bob's Burgers' songs are hilarious, endearingly homespun, and a little bit off. That's why, with the season finale set to air this Sunday, we asked the show's writers to pick their favorite songs from the series. Their choices and insights below. 10. "Bad Girls Theme" (from "Bad Tina," season two) This rocking ode to teenage delinquency includes the line “Bad girls don’t like to go to Dog Prom," a reference to a fictitious series of canine dance movies that has become a running joke both in the show and our personal lives. "Bad Girls" is also the inaugural »

Predicting a schedule for next season at Fox is somewhat easier than the other networks, if only because we know going in that Wednesday nights and half of Thursday is set and Sunday will be filled with animation.
Coupled with the fact that the network only programs two hours a night, there are comparatively fewer holes to fill than at some other nets.
This year, though, Fox might take some bigger swings. The network is about to wrap up a pretty rough season, and Zap2it can see it adding as many as six new shows to its schedule in the fall -- including a further comedy push outside of Tuesday nights.

Kevin Kline and Maggie Smith will star in the Paris-set dramedy "My Old Lady," the feature directorial debut of Israel Horovitz, who adapted the film from his play. Protagonist Pictures will take the film to international buyers at Cannes next week. In "My Old Lady," French-speaker Kevin Kline (last seen in "Darling Companion" and heard as a voice on Fox's animated series "Bob's Burgers") will play Mathias, a New Yorker who goes to Paris to deal with his estranged father's assets. But he finds old lady Mathilde (Maggie Smith of "Downton Abbey") living in dad's apartment with her daughter (Jane Birkin) and learns he must wait until she dies to gain possession of the apartment. Horovitz's screenwriting credits include Istvan Szabo's "Sunshine" (1999), which won a European Film Award for best screenplay, and "The Strawberry Statement," winner of the 1970 Jury Prize at Cannes. Principal photography for "My Old Lady" begins in Paris on September 9th. »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, May 5, 2013
The broadcast networks had another ho-hum Sunday in the ratings, although an hours-long delay in a Nascar race gave Fox a boost in the early part of the night.
Once the race was over, the season finales of "The Amazing Race" and "The Mentalist" took over the lead in both viewers and adults 18-49 for CBS. "Once Upon a Time" and "Revenge" were up a little for ABC, as was "Red Widow" -- although its finale still didn't make much of a dent. "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" fell slightly for NBC.
CBS averaged 9.4 million viewers and a 5.9 rating/10 share in households for the night. Fox scored 5.95 million viewers and a 3.5/6, pending updates for the Nascar runover. ABC (5.75 million, 3.6/6) took third, and NBC trailed with just over 4 million viewers and a 2.5/4.
Fox currently holds the lead among adults 18-49 with a 2.1 rating. CBS scored a 1.9 in the demographic, »
There's a good chance that when you expected to see Family Guy's latest episode "Save the Clam" you instead got Bob's Burgers. Worse things have happened. However, this mixup was due to a Nascar race running way over, so everything got pushed back about 25 minutes or so for Eastern and Central time zones. So if you recorded American Dad then you got to see this episode with the death of Horace, the long-time bartender of The Drunken Clam. The episode is largely a pedestrian affair, so if you miss it, it's not the worst thing in the world, but it at least is a decent half-hour, even if it doesn't go anywhere outside of the character death.
It all started with softball, which was all rather coincidental due to some real-life events. Seth MacFarlane may have recently stolen a joke from baseball player and Twitter humorist Brandon McCarthy, and »
