We've already had the first casualty of the fall: Made in Jersey, which quietly tanked on Friday nights on CBS. Other shows are teetering, including Partners, Mob Doctor, Animal Practice and Guys With Kids.
Even the stuff given full season orders so far--The Mindy Project and Ben & Kate on Fox and NBC's The New Normal, Matthew Perry's Go On and Revolution--are hardly runaway hits and seem more like defensive moves.

Still, taken at face value, PKP is right--Canadian networks, especially English Canadian networks, have to get in the content game big time or risk become roadkill on the Internet superhighway. This Hollywood simulcast shell game is looking sillier every fall.
There's also radio talk about ESPN's 9:79* Ben Johnson documentary airing Thursday night on TSN and some talk of worthy new efforts Arrow and Nashville. You can listen in here.
