With the Network’s traditional May UpFronts just around the corner, thought now might be as good a time as any to take a closer look at the potential fates of your favorite shows.

 You Take the Good: Tina Fey is America’s Sweetheart.
 You Take the Bad: “America’s Sweetheart” isn’t what it used to be. Hence, 30 ROCK’s measly 3 million viewers per week.
 You Take Them Both and There You Have… Our Prediction: A thirteen episode seventh and final season to placate the New York Times.

 You Take the Good: Ummm…
 You Take the Bad: Writing… ratings… a semi-autobiographic show about Chelsea Handler that stars Laura Prepon… need we go on?
 You Take Them Both and There You Have… Our Prediction: Come September, CHELSEA’s 3 million remaining fans will be the ones asking “Are you there, Chelsea?”

 You Take the Good: Thanks to some incredibly sharp storytelling and ridiculously stellar acting, AWAKE gets serious credit for reinvigorating our interest in the run-of-the-mill police procedural.
 You Take the Bad: Judging by the twenty million or so viewers that tune into the likes of NCIS on any given Tuesday, reinventing the wheel does not a hit show make.
 You Take Them Both and There You Have… Our Prediction: For his next project, can Kyle Killen’s agent puh-lease point him towards a cable network?
