Tomorrow's TV Talk is on the network upfront presentations going on this week in New York. NBC went first, renewing "Scrubs," "Crossing Jordan" and "The Apprentice" for midseason, officially killing off "E-Ring" and "Surface" and pimping a slough of new shows, noteably Aaron Sorkin's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," "Friday Night Lights" (which will air on Tuesdays, naturally) and a bunch of other dramas. ABC goes tomorrow, but it's already killed "Invasion," booked Callista Flockhart for a drama and renewed "According to Jim," proving that there is no justice in the world. Oh, and the latest is that the CW will bring back "7th Heaven" after all. Go figure.
Now you don't have to read the column tomorrow -- look how much time I've saved you!
Meanwhile, President Bush's speech tonight is messing up the schedule. Our local cadet on "Wheel of Fortune" will apparently go a half-hour late, after the speech (unless it runs long...). ABC pushed Oprah's "Legends Ball" back to May 22.
UPDATE: TC asked "So what about poor Joey? Has he been officially canceled?"
Yes, Mr. Tribbiani has been put out of his misery, along with "Teachers" and "Conviction." Sorry if any of those are your favorites (and sorry in so many ways if you're really a "Joey" fan).
