I had this really horrible dream, I was to make the announcement of canceling a fan-favorite show. Everyone was bombing me with hate-mails and petitions and I got dead-threats in the mail. Brrr, thank god I’m not of those people, I get to mail my own dead-threats to dudes and dudettes. I’m sure one of the guys at CBS will undergo the same scenario, poor him or her! So CBS made their cancellations and NBC released their schedule!
They cancelled Rob, Unforgettable, NYC 22 and CSI: Miami. Two and A Half Man and CSI: NY will be returning for another season.
CBS added 4 dramas and 2 comedies to their line-up.
- Elementary: A sherlock-like detective drama. A former Scotland Yard consultant solves crimes for the NYPD alongside Watson, his recovery assistant. Jonny Lee Miller will play Sherlock and Lucy Liu stars as Watson
- Vegas: A drama set in the 1960s centered around the true story of Ralph Lamb, cowboy turned Sheriff. Dennis Quaid will play the sheriff. Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova) and Carrie-An Moss are co-starring.

- Golden Boy: Tracks a cop’s rise from officer to police commissioner. Theo James has been cast as the cop. True Bloods Kevin Alejandro also stars.
- Friend Me: Two friends move from their hometown to Los Angeles and begin their lives at GroupOn. One of the guys prefers playing poker at home but his friend has other plans for him and drags him out to get a social life. Aaw Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicholas Braun have been cast. Mintz-Plasse is so hilarious!

When Charlie decided to propose to his girlfriend, Louis neurotic attempts to be supportive almost results in breaking things with his own girlfriend. David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Michael Urie and Brandon Routh are starring.
