TWoP 10: Bubble Shows That Shouldn't Be Renewed

It's that time of year when networks are finalizing their fall line-ups and deciding which current shows to keep or cancel. And while we'd like to see underrated procedural Detroit 1-8-7 get another chance, as well as the ridiculous, nonsensical guilty pleasure Off the Map continue, there are a plenty of other "bubble" shows that truly deserve to get their bubbles burst, freeing their casts and producers to seek better luck elsewhere. Here are the ones that most need to be axed, for everyone's sake:

Fox: More Singing, More Dancing, More Action

Fox: More Singing, More Dancing, More Action

It's the start of upfront week, and while Fox revealed their schedule this morning, the presentation showing off their actual new programming until this afternoon. It took place at City Center in Manhattan, but thanks to the magic of the web, I got to watch it from my mostly comfy desk chair. It started off with a guide to surviving the onslaught of new TV. Using clips of Homer telling us about nutrition, Bones keeping us hip with lingo and something with The Family Guy's Peter. Then they revealed the stage, which was filled with Fox stars. People from each show came to the front and took a quick bow, while the announcer said their names. Or tried to. He brutalized everyone from Chi McBride to Tyler Labine to, most egregiously, Lie to Me's Brenda Hines. He (being Brendan) got a good laugh out of it. They all trickled off stage, leaving only Kiefer "Jack Bauer" Sutherland.

TWoP 10: Most Promising-Sounding Pilots

It's pilot season, which means there's a lot of buzz about people we like getting cast in shows that may or may not ever make it to air. The studios are busy ordering pilots to see if they'll fly, and then selecting a rare few to actually make it to their lineups. But we're hopeful that a few of these shows get picked up, mostly because they feature some of our favorite stars, so they stand out from the sea of medical, legal and cop pilots out there. Here are the ones we'd most like to see hitting the airwaves next fall (or even winter).

Today's TWOP News: March 6, 2009

Woohoo, it's Friday! And it's finally time to ask the question that's been on everyone's minds (okay, maybe not everyone's, but still!) all month: who watches the Watchmen? The answer: not you, if you're reading this. So kill a couple minutes with these TV newsbites before heading off into the night to check out Billy Crudup's giant, blue naked body, or get drunk, or whatever else you may have planned for the weekend. Here at TWoP, we don't judge.
