US Network TV Upfronts

This week, most of the major networks make their sales pitches to advertisers by announcing their upcoming lineups.  I’ve tracked down as much information as I could from the past few months, as well as what has been announced today, and compiled it here for your viewing pleasure (pun intended).  CBS is due to make their official announcement on Wednesday, so I’ll update this post later in the week, but some "unofficial" info is still trickling out regarding CBS.

UPDATES 5/19:  CBS renewals, Smallville update, MTV
UPDATES 5/20:  CW renewal, pick up

Note:  The Hollywood Reporter (where I gathered much of this info from) has put up a video player where you can view all the trailers for the new shows.  Very cool!
