CBS upfronts

CBS isn't the sexiest of networks, but with its constant diet of cop procedurals, Chuck Lorre comedies and adult-skewed programming, it's about the only one that's done better this year than it did last. Apparently convinced that slow and steady - and unsexy - shows with bad scripts but good casts will win the race, CBS has two more cop procedurals, two medical procedurals and a law procedural - oh, and a comedy about a pregnant movie critic, starring someone who used to be in a Chuck Lorre comedy. They always like to throw a wildcard into the mix, don't they?

So, after the jump, plot run-downs and videos from Accidentally On Purpose, The Good Wife, NCIS: Los Angeles, Three Rivers, The Bridge and Miami Trauma.

Fox Upfronts

Well, we've done NBC (although not completely, since they do 'infronts' rather than 'upfronts' - ie they dither). Now it's time to look at what Fox has lined up for earthly pleasures this Fall/Autumn - as well as in the coming months and January.  

After the break: Brothers, The Cleveland Show, Glee, Human Target, Mental, Past Life, and Sons of Tucson, complete with videos.
