Upfronts 2014: BREAKING: Shows renewed, others canceled; some move time slots

     The cast of "The Good Wife" at CBS's upfront presentation
     on Wednesday, May 14, 2014. I've already forgotten what
     exactly Alan Cumming sang and danced to, but no doubt it
     was amusing.

Time for my annual long-winded, overly complicated, and of course very late blog post in which I outline the 2014 upfront presentations, in which all the major television networks (and The CW) present their new fall schedules in front of advertisers in New York City. Below, I'll be breaking down the new network schedules, occasionally including unfair gut reactions to non-representative cutdowns of not-for-air pilots or hypothesizing as to the success or failure of a lineup. And as usual, wherever possible, I'll be hyperlinking to a trailer for new shows whenever they are listed (and when their YouTube trailers are not geofiltered).

Let's do this.
