Upfront News: Day 1


This is an exciting week in the land of TV. We have entered the time period known as Network Upfronts, where we learn about all of the new pilots that have been greenlit for Fall (What will be the next Lost? What will be the next Cavemen?) as well as what's in store for our current favorite series. We also learn the fate of our favorite shows whose future has been in limbo...


Make sure you check back each day to get the newest scoop.
