Eli Stone renewed, Boston Legal safe, October Road done

It’s the first day of the network upfront presentations in New York and the announcements on what shows will be returning next season are flying fast and furious.

The best news I’ve heard so far today is that Eli Stone has been renewed for another season. (Yes, baby! Thank you, ABC.)

Boston Legal has been given a pickup, too, but apparently will be scaled back, reminiscent of what happened to The Practice many years ago.

NBC officially announced that Jimmy Fallon will take over for Conan O’Brien sometime in the first six months of 2009. It’s not clear yet what’s happening with Jay Leno.
October Road fans, I’m sorry to report that ABC has canceled the show. I know you love it, but apparently it hasn’t performed well enough for ABC to invest in another season. Women’s Murder Club also got the boot.

Over at FOX, Back to You will not be back and neither will New Amsterdam. ‘Til Death, however, has been renewed. Explain that one. I can’t.

I’ll have more announcements as the week continues. I know you’re all waiting to hear the fate of Moonlight, so I’ll let you know something as soon as I find out the scoop.

Thanks, Roca!

Yes, I'm thrilled that Eli is a kepper. I really love this show, so of course, that usually means the kiss of death. LOL.

Please visit us here anytime!

I'll give you an "Amen" for Eli. Love him and the show, especially when Victor Garber? breaks into song.
