Reports on next week's upfronts have spelled mostly good news for shows--such as Friday Night Lights, Medium, and Scrubs--so far, but with old shows getting renewed and new ones getting picked up, someone has to go. Moles inside NBC (who have been very busy and very talkative the past few days) say that The Black Donnel...

NBC slots in new game show for Crossing Jordan

NBC is doubling down on game shows, bringing a local version of European hit 1 vs. 100 to prime time next month.

Hosted by Bob Saget, 1 vs. 100 pits a contestant against 100 other people in a test of trivia skills for a $1 million prize.

It begins its five-week run October 13 at 9 p.m., with an episode of NBC's reigning game show, Deal or No Deal, serving as its lead-in. In the remaining four weeks it will then take over the Friday 8 p.m. slot that had been targeted for Crossing Jordan. The crime drama will get a new time slot to be determined later in the season.

It's time once again for TV upfronts, when networks converge to host a series of presentations in which they bombard advertisers, press representatives, and others with exciting news about the upcoming season. Whispered gossip fills the air, series pickups and cancellations are announced, and network presidents wax poetic over the undeniable greatness of their latest small-screen creations. We want to make sure you've got the goods on all of this important news, so we'll continue to update these pages as new information is revealed. Keep checking back, and by the end of the week you'll have the fall season memorized!

Jordan creator crosses over to new projects

After five years in the Boston morgue, the creator and executive producer of NBC's Beantown-based drama Crossing Jordan is developing projects for NBC and CBS.

Tim Kring has written a reality-bending, large ensemble drama for NBC about a group of seemingly everyday people who discover that they have superpowers.

Dubbed Heroes, the project revolves around the practical considerations that people face at work and at home when they suddenly realize they can fly, or have extraordinary strength, or can leap tall buildings in a single bound, and so on. Kring describes it as "a big giant saga" with a graphic-novel tone. The idea of putting "hyper-real characters" in surreal settings came to him not long after he saw the features The Incredibles and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind back to back, Kring said.

The untitled CBS project is a collaboration ...

ABC trusts Grey's Anatomy to pull off post-Super Bowl ratings.

Spike for Anatomy ensures Super Bowl slot

ABC's Grey's Anatomy will stay put on Super Bowl Sunday.

The growing second-season hit, part of the network's formidable Sunday lineup, will air a special episode February 5, after ABC's broadcast of Super Bowl XL.

For the second consecutive time, ABC picks a Sunday sophomore drama with a female lead to run in the coveted post-Super Bowl slot. In 2003, the network's Alias landed the spot but stumbled in the ratings after a late start in the East.

Grey's Super Bowl assignment comes after the medical drama passed a key physical on Sunday, posting a big viewership spike at 10 p.m. coming out of a repeat of Desperate Housewives. Grey's finished out as the most-watched program of the night with an average of 17 ...

Housewives once again dominate Sunday

More than 25 million people kept their regular date with Desperate Housewives on Sunday.

The ABC drama towered over the night once again, drawing an average of 25.5 million viewers and an 11.2 rating/25 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. Even with Fox's live coverage of the decisive American League Championship Series game that advanced the Chicago White Sox to the fall classic, ABC topped the 18-49 demo ratings of CBS, NBC, and Fox combined in the 9 p.m. hour.

ABC was strong at either end of the night as well with a two-part Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that perked up in the 8 p.m. hour to an average of 15.6 million viewers and 6.5/16 in ...
