Just returned from NBC’s
upfront infront presentation. Highlights below.
• Peacock co-chairman Ben Silverman confirmed that Life will not go on. (Bubble Show Cheat Sheet updated accordingly.)
• As I reported earlier today, the fates of Medium, My Name is Earl, Chuck, and Law & Order will be decided on or before May 19.
• If Chuck is renewed, it probably won’t be returning to Mondays. Silverman said Heroes would be paired with “a new show” on the night (my guess: Parenthood)
• NBC is prepared to move forward with Law & Order: SVU with or without Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay. “There’s an offer on the table,” said co-chair Marc Graboff, cryptically.
• Special guests included Amy Poehler (wearing a swine flu mask) and Donald Trump (wearing his soggy raincoat).
• Light refreshments were served. And enjoyed.
(BTW, if you were following me on Twitter you would have known all this already. Just sayin’.)
