Story highlights

  • "Fringe" has been renewed for one more season by Fox
  • "Cougar Town" will most likely not be renewed by ABC
  • "Smash" has been renewed by NBC
Some shows have received an 11th-hour reprieve before the May upfronts in New York, where the broadcast networks announce their fall 2012 schedules beginning May 14. Time to check the status of nearly all broadcast shows.
"Alcatraz": Still not feeling hopeful.
"Allen Gregory": DEAD.
"American Dad": RENEWED.
"American Idol": Not going anywhere, obviously.
"Bones": RENEWED.
"Breaking In": DEAD.
"Family Guy": RENEWED.
"Fringe": RENEWED.
"Glee": RENEWED.
"Hell's Kitchen": RENEWED
"House": The doctor is out!
"Kitchen Nightmares": RENEWED.
"Napoleon Dynamite": We aren't feeling it.
"New Girl": RENEWED.
"Raising Hope": RENEWED.
"The Cleveland Show": RENEWED.
"The Finder": We don't want to go looking for it next year.
"The Simpsons": RENEWED.
"The X-Factor": RENEWED. (But who are the new hosts and remaining judges?)
"I Hate My Teenage Daughter": Not officially canceled, but Fox never officially canceled "Moment of Truth" either.
"Terra Nova": 3.6 rating. Status: Canceled by Fox, currently shopping for another home. We're not holding our breath, especially since stars like Jason O'Mara have already booked other shows.
"Touch": It's always safe to bet on Kiefer Sutherland. A pickup could come next week.
"Castle": A 10 p.m. success on ABC? This crime drama favorite will return.
