Fall TV Scorecard: Which Shows Are Returning?

As the networks unveiled their plans for the 2009-10 TV season during the week of May 18, we kept tabs on exactly which shows earned a pick-up, and which got the hook. We focused on the major broadcast networks, to keep things simple.The list of series awaiting renewal breaks down each show's outlook for earning a spot on its network's line-up GOOD, FAIR or POOR, based on ratings performance, the latest buzz and other considerations (such as Jay Leno claiming five NBC prime-time hours for himself).
