    Pick-ups are starting to be announced while the upfronts are happening next week

    Here's what NBC is up to

    Anne Heche stars in Save Me as a woman in a broken marriage who transforms into a version of herself and creates miracles along the way. NBC has ordered 13 episodes. It co-stars American Horror Story's Alexandra Breckenridge.

    Go On centers on an irreverent yet charming sportscaster (Matthew Perry) who tries to move on from loss and finds solace from the members of his mandatory group-therapy sessions. Transformers' Julie White will play Anne, a woman stuck in the anger stage of grief; Suzy Nakamura, Laura Benanti, Allison Miller and Khary Payton co-star.

    So I guess the Dane Cook show is out. Also, didn't ABC try a Matthew Perry sitcom awhile back where he's a curmudgeon?

    Revolution, from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, is described as an epic adventure thriller in which a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology -- computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights -- has mysteriously blacked out ... forever. Billy Burke, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiradakos, Graham Rogers, Anna Lise Phillips, Tim Guinee, Andrea Roth, JD Pardo and Zak Orth star in the drama from Warner Bros. Television. Jon Favreau directs the pilot.

    From Glee's Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler, The New Normal revolves around a blended family of a gay couple (Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha) and the woman (Georgia King) who becomes a surrogate for them as they grow their family. Ellen Barkin co-stars with Nene Leakes on board as recurring.

    Of those shows, I might give Revolution a chance because it has a decent pedigree, but this year's string of big budget sci-fi shows that just sucked balls makes me hesitant. The Doctor House Vet seems like it could be funny as a parody but not as a full series.

    And, as always, looking forward to thekidslepthere's insights.

    I'm definitely going to wait for Revolution to get a second season before I even think about taking a look. It's a policy that's been doing wonders for my enjoyment of television for the past couple of years.

    Revolution sounds half Flash Forward, half Terra Nova. Maybe they'll get a winning formula this time. I'll certainly give it a look.

    I never got into NBC comedys but there are a couple shows that have familiar comedian/comedic actor names so they're a possibility as long as I don't have a lot of other shows to watch.

    I'll give Revolution a shot. Animal Practice may be funny b/c of Justin Kirk.

    Revolution sounds like Jericho without the extra half-season.

    I'll be honest I was lazy on reading pilots this year. But I should start getting DVD's in the next week or so. I didn't read any of these, but what I did read I wasn't that crazy about.

    Sounds a lot like Dies the Fire by S M Stirling.

    Revolution could easily fall into the Jericho trap and become unwatchable (it's the one show I wish had stayed cancelled. The first season was phenomenal, and the first couple of episodes of season 2 just drove me right the fuck away). I'll check it out, but with caution.

    Revolution is the only thing that sounds interesting. I love anything post-apocalyptic, so I'm in.

    I can't believe wackbag isn't uber excited for The New Normal. It defies logic.

    I know, after the 30 page thread for "The Kids Are Alright" you'd think people would be clamoring to comment.

    Once, there was a GOOD movie called The Kids Are Alright. And it was a documentary about The Who.

    Just got NBC's "Friday Night Dinner" which I don't think got picked up, but more importantly I got CW's (Green) "Arrow" pilot and even more importantly "The Carrie Diaries".

    I'll probably watch Arrow this afternoon and give a quick synopsis. But don't worry SITC fans, I'm sure I'll make a cosmo and watch the Carrie Diaries tonight!

    EEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I read how NBC picked up six comedies this season. That seems excessive.

    Fox's pick-ups one of which means Kelly won't be coming back to The Office

    I'm surprised Kevin Bacon is doing a network series. It's not that I think his career is going great, but it still seems odd. And I don't get the army of serial killer thing. It's not how serial killers work.

    Not only are they returning... but he has a new one called Hotel Hell. It's Kitchen Nightmares but in hotels.

    I can't wait. I love Gordon!

    I don't like the title Hotel Hell. I'd call it "No Room At The Inn."

    You forget that despite their claims that it didn't effect them that much, Kevin Bacon and his wife lost almost all of their money thanks to Bernie Madoff.

    Tyler Labine AGAIN? It'll last one season. Anything post-Reaper has failed for him, hard.

    cool.

    oh. nevermind.

    Jesus. What a horrid way to try to tap into Dexter's success. And they're 2 years too late.

    Post Reaper? I'm still disappointing that show was cancelled. It really found itself in season 2. And more Ray Wise is always better.

    And like the thing said, Bryan Fuller is making a Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham prequel series for NBC that will run for 13 episodes per season and the Hannibal Lecter serial killer angle won't be approached until season 3.
