All Fox, right? I've got Lucifer and Minority Report on the go but haven't got time to watch them yet. The latter seems like it might be a keeper, but this IS Fox.

I've got the Supergirl pilot to watch after my exam. Had it a while, just haven't had a chance to get round to it.

I watched it and, well, to be polite it's heart is in the right place but the whole thing is just such a bad fit for CBS. The people behind it clearly don't really have any love or willingness to commit to the source material (which is what makes the CW DC shows so good) and just want a ride on the gravy train to middling blandness.

It does strike me as being something that should have been passed off to the CW as it just fits with their current line-up so well.

TBS have renewed American Dad for ANOTHER 2 22 episode seasons, meaning 66 episodes across 2016, 17 and 18. The first time it's ever had a full season and now it has 3 in a row *.*

(just a shame the quality took a noticeable dip for the first half of the new TBS season)

Is anyone watching Quantico? It's one of the best debut shows I've watched in the last years.

Nah, I won't be bothering with it as there doesn't seem to be much in the way of originality about it. I've already got my by the numbers procedural fix in Majors Crimes.

It's the wonderful time of the year when full season orders are handed out, so far we have Blindspot, Fresh Off The Boat, Quantico (to 19, with room for 3 more when other new shows flop hard).

CBS have pushed new Jane Lynch vehicle Angel From Hell to February and pulled 2 Broke Girls to November. Basically switching them around.

ABC have basically cancelled Blood & Oil by reducing it to 10 episodes and NBC have done the same with The Player which has been cut back to 9 episodes.

Limitless, The Grinder, Dr. Ken and Life In Pieces all now have full season orders whilst Truth Be Told has also had its episode order cut to 10. Midseason comedies Supermarket and Telenovela have also been trimmed from 13 to 11 episodes each.

Also the J Lo vehicle, Shades Of Blue, will be premiering January 14th.

Dr Ken though? It looks SO pedestrian and targeted for 29 year olds who still live with their mothers and write racist youtube comments just for attention. (So basically just for the sarah michelle type)
