May is a busy month for the major broadcasting networks. During this time of year, in preparation for their Upfronts, stations decide the fate of current television series. They look at what the most popular tv shows were, and decide what should be renewed or canceled. It’s an anxious time for everyone as actors await to hear if they have a secure job next season and viewers get to see if their favorite shows survived the cut.
As all this goes on, and we learn more and more about what will be seen on our television screens come this fall (did you hear about 24‘s return as a miniseries?) we want to look at all the new popular tv shows of 2013 and where they stand as of now.
