New ABC sched Cavemen-less

ABC revealed its 2008-2009 schedule today in New York City, and the company pulled a shocking maneuver: Cavemen has been canceled.

Joking aside, Cavemen will be joined in ABC's dumpster by Oprah's Big Give, Miss/Guided, Carpoolers, October Road, Cashmere Mafia, Women's Murder Club, and Men in Trees, all of which fell victim to the axe. Big Give certainly had the ratings punch to be granted a second season, but apparently Oprah Winfrey didn't want to continue the show, according to ABC exec Stephen McPherson.

But enough bad news--new television schedules aren't just for mourning lost loves (Maurice the Caveman, you will be missed), they're also for checking out the new freshman class. Picked up for fall debuts are the new drama Life on Mars and the "alternative series" Opportunity Knocks ...

ABC fall lineup adds a dozen

It was ABC's turn to outline its upcoming fall lineup today, and the alphabet did so with 12 new shows--seven dramas, four comedies, and one "alternative series." As previously announced, the network is also returning several programs, including big hits Grey's Anatomy, Lost, and Ugly Betty.

"Seventeen returning shows is really key for us--some of which are breakout hits and some of which we are building. We're confident they're going to be big assets for us," said Stephen McPherson, president of ABC, in a conference call with the press. "To me, it's all about good programming. If we could do 47 Desperate Housewives, we would, but we can't," he said later.

Word on most of ABC's new pickups got out before today's announcements, but the network confirmed it has added the comedy Miss/Guided starring Two and a Half Men's Judy ...

Lost fans finally know when to clear their calendars, given that ABC today unveiled its strike-afflicted midseason prime-time schedule. The hit drama has a new night and time, moving from Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. to Thursday nights at 9 p.m.

The first episode of Lost's fourth season will air on January 31, just barely beating the February launch date that was speculated. The show currently has eight of its planned 16 episodes in the can due to complications from the writers strike.

Cashmere Mafia, from Sex and the City creator Darren Star, makes its debut Thursday, January 3, before moving to Wednesdays at 10 p.m. The show stars Lucy Liu as one of four leading ladies in New York City who must juggle their ambitious careers with their hectic love lives.

"October Road," an ABC drama series centers on a young, acclaimed novelist/screenwriter Nick Garret (played by "One Tree Hill" star Bryan Greenberg). Nick's best-selling novel is based on his hometown friends. He is at a crossroads in his life when he returns to his hometown to teach at the local university, and faces the family and friends he left behind. To the literary world he is a genius, but to his hometown he is a coward who betrayed their trust and their secrets. Now that he found a new job, Nick will have to deal with the past and try to move on with his life.

The first season aired in mid-season starting March 15, 2007, and was recently renewed for a second season which should air sometime after fall or during mid-season. The second season premiered November 22, 2007 and ended on March 10, 2008.moreless
