CBS 2013 Upfronts
CBS is the number one network and because of that fact they do not have much that needs changing. Their approach to their 2013-2014 schedule is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it one. With that there weren’t very many changes made to the schedule. They extended their Thursday night comedy to 2 hours and they have taken a page out of cable’s playbook and are doing short series runs on Monday nights with two new series having short 15 episode seasons. One will air in the fall and the other during the mid-season. The new series coming next year are We Are Men, Mom, The Millers, Reckless, The Crazy Ones, Hostages, Intelligence and Friends With Better Lives. Check out the schedule below.

ABC 2013 Upfronts
ABC had their upfront presentation this afternoon and unveiled their 2013-2014 schedule. The network did not have any freshman hits last year and hopes that with these 13 new series being picked up that changes. The new series that were picked up are Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, Lucky 7, Back In The Game, Super Fun Night, Mixology, Mind Games, Toy Story of Terror, The Quest, Once Upon A Time In Wonderland, Resurrection and Betrayal. I mentioned in my previous upfronts post that I had to play ABC exec for a class group project. We did ok. Out of the 13 shows that ABC picked up we got 6 correct but we were correct on all the cancellations so yay. Check out the new schedule below.

It’s that time of the year again. The upfronts here. It’s the time when all the broadcast networks are going to unveil their fall schedules. We usually have to wait until the day of each network’s upfront to find out for sure what has been cancelled or renewed but this year that news has been coming all week.
I always get really excited about upfronts but I’m especially excited for this year’s because one of my projects for grad school was to play ABC exec and put together an upfront for class (shoutout to my group members Emma, Debbie and Yijing). It was soo fun so I’m looking forward to seeing how accurate we were with what got cancelled and what was picked up. Here is the schedule for the broadcast networks to unveil their schedule.
NBC – Monday 5/13
Fox – Monday Afternoon 5/13
ABC – Tuesday 5/14
CBS – Wed 5/15
CW – Thursday 5/16
A lot of cancellations and pickups have already been announced. For those check out TVLine, The Wrap, Deadline, or Hollywood Reporter. I will post as each schedule becomes available. Stay tuned for updates.

Fall Movies I Can’t Wait For
Fall is here!!! Leaves are falling, the weather is cooler, the boots and jackets have started to come out.Ok it’s been here for a while now but I’ve been so obsessed with tv lately that I forgot all about the movies that are coming this fall that I want to see.
Martha Marcy May Marlene
Elizabeth Olsen stars as Martha, a young lady that escapes from an abusive cult led by a charismatic leader Patrick (John Hawkes;Winter’s Bone, Contagion). After being missing for sometime, she returns home and tries to assimilate back into her family. She begins to have a difficult time when she becomes haunted by the memories of her time with the cult and becomes increasingly paranoid with the belief that the cult is watching her every move. This movie looks so good. From the trailer alone it looks like the cast is great, the story is intriguing and its going to definitely be an Oscar contender.
