TV, top to bottom

With the first month of the 2011 fall TV season now officially behind us, where stand the newbies? There have already been a few cancellations ("The Playboy Club," "Free Agents," "Charlie's Angels") and rest assured there will be more. Here's a snapshot of the outright winners, fence-sitters and Humpty Dumpties of the four major networks:


"Two Broke Girls," CBS (Broke no more ... they got a small hit.)

"New Girl," Fox (Zippy dippy Zooey soars.)

"Ringer," CW (Sarah Michelle Gellar, both of them, get a full season!)

"The X Factor," Fox (Not what Simon boasted, er promised, but this will do.)

"Up All Night," NBC (Network will take what it can get these days.)

"Whitney," NBC (Network will take, etc.)

"Suburgatory," ABC (Lucky to have "Modern Family" as lead-out. Very lucky.)

"Revenge," ABC (Long Island drama rules! Sort of.)

"Person of Interest," CBS (Clobbering "Grey's Anatomy.")


"Man Up!," ABC (Could be Man Down by this week.)

"Terra Nova," Fox (If only dinosaurs were in the viewing audience.)

"Hart of Dixie," CW (Buzz-free.)

"Last Man Standing," ABC (Expect this Tim Allen sitcom to keep standing.)

"Unforgettable," CBS (Respectable, but not unbelievable ... ratings.)

"A Gifted Man," CBS (Not gifted ratings, even though a Friday time period winner.)


"The Secret Circle," CW (Nice pilot, no fans.)

"Prime Suspect," NBC (Can't get arrested.)

"Pan Am," ABC. Could be headed for a hard landing.)
