It's raining blood over at ABC today. V, Off the Map, Brothers & Sisters, No Ordinary Family, Better with You, Detroit 1-8-7 and Mr. Sunshine have all been canceled. New pick-ups include Good Christian Belles (formerly Good Christian Bitches -- I loved the original title, but can live with the new one), Charlie's Angels (which I hear is just awful, but we'll see), Once Upon a Time, Pan Am, Revenge, Scandal (new Shonda Rhimes) and The River. Interestingly, Marc Cherry's promising-sounding Hallelujah, starring Terry O'Quinn, didn't get a pick-up, and neither did Poe, the drama about Edgar Allen Poe solving mysteries in 19th-century Boston. We'll know more when ABC has their Upfront presentation next Tuesday, so check back for coverage then.
Oh, and they renewed Happy Endings. Good job not being the worst sitcom about a group of couples, guys!
After renewing Parenthood and Harry's Law, NBC also got stabby today, unsurprisingly canceling Outsourced, The Event and Law & Order: LA, while picking up British remake Free Agents, Bent (starring Amanda Peet) and Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea. Also, they passed on Wonder Woman, which is obviously a smart move, but how disappointing is it that we'll never see that awful thing?
Two and a Half Men has found their Charlie Sheen replacement in Ashton Kutcher, who will play a new character and cost about half as much as Charlie Sheen did. This is great. I like Ashton Kutcher where I'm least likely to come across him: on CBS.
And all you Chuck devotees I'm sure have already heard, but the eternal bubble show has been renewed for a shortened (13 episodes) final fifth season. Now stop eating Subway; you're starting to smell.
