With the upfronts kicking off in New York on Monday, the TV world is buzzing with which shows will be back, which shows are through and which new shows could be big hits in the fall. Nothing's official till next week, but here's some of the buzz today:
- TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reports that "Scrubs" will definitely be back on NBC next season. The New York Times, on the other hand, says "Scrubs" is a goner.
- "Lipstick Jungle" has joined NBC's slate of new shows, says the Hollywood Reporter.
- Kristin Veitch of E! says "The Office" isn't going to be an hour long after all; instead, it will air 24 episodes, including four one-hour specials.
- One proposed CBS schedule making the rounds includes the musical "Viva Laughlin," supernatural show "Babylon Fields," and partner-swapping series "Swingtown."
- TV Guide has what could be ABC's whole schedule, including "Private Practice," "Dirty Sexy Money" and the possible midseason return of "The Knights of Prosperity."
- Fox has already ordered episodes of "Back to You," Kelsey Grammar and Patricia Heaton's new show. Also, at least one report says Fox has renewed "'Til Death.'"
