Well, the wait is over.
The network has acquired scripted hour-long series “Siberia”, and will start airing it on July 1, at 10 PM ET.
The BBC officially announced today, just after the new series’ seventh season concluded its run, that not only will “Doctor Who” return on Novmember 23 with its 50-anniversary special, co-starring David Tennant, Billie Piper and John Hurt, among others, but that the legendary show will return for an eighth season, with Steven Moffat staying on as showrunner.
In a first for veteran CBS comedy, “How I Met Your Mother” has added a new series regular for its upcoming final season.
Cristin Milioti, who was identified as the titular “mother” in this week’s season finale, will be part of the regular cast when the show returns in the fall, TVLine’s Michael Ausiello reports.
In light of its upfront presentation yesterday, USA has announced that it has picked up its first ever half-hour comedies with “Sirens” and “Playing House”. The cable network also ordered comedy “Love Is Dead” to pilot.
The move comes over the fact that USA will begin to air reruns of “Modern Family” on September 24.
This time, you won’t have to wait until the next day.
Here’s a bunch of clips for the upcoming fall and midseason shows from The CW, after the jump!
On the final day of this year’s network TV up fronts, it’s time for The CW to unveil its fall schedule.
Of note is the fact that “The Carrie Diaries” is moving to Fridays, while “Supernatural” lands on Tuesdays, and “Hart of Dixie” getting the Monday 8 PM slot.
The upcoming fourth season of “Nikita” will definitely be the last, and will consist of six episodes.
Here is the list.

And after the jump, the descriptions of all the shows follow. But careful: Based on previous experience, the CW tends to put in some real spoilers in there for upcoming events. Read with caution.
Before we get to The CW and its fall schedule and subsequent upfront presentation, let’s take a look at what CBS offered ad buyers yesterday at their upfront.
What you won’t get here is trailers in the very sense of the word, as CBS takes a slightly different approach to its fall previews, with a behind-the-scenes look at its upcoming shows.
So, jump in!
As soon as the new fall schedules are out, the recasts start.
As it happens every year, several shows that were picked up to series during upfront week will see some actors exit, either because they have to return to their existing regular roles on current shows, or for other reasons that normally don’t get public.
Michael Rapaport and Mary Elizabeth Ellis have exited the show, for reasons unknown.
Baelfire aka Neal and Shaw are here to stay.
Per TVLine, Michael Raymond-James, who plays Mr. Gold’s son and father of Henry on ABC’s “Once Upon A Time”, will be a series regular when the show returns in the fall.
Same goes for Sarah Shahi, who will be part of the regular cast of CBS’ “Person of Interest” next season. She plays the mysterious Shaw on the show, who ended up helping Reese and Finch in their struggle against a deteriorating machine. TVGuide tweeted the news first.
And we’re down to two…
Today, it’s CBS day in terms of up fronts, and first and foremost, here’s what their next fall schedule will look like.

NBC held its upfront presentation today, and, of course, was promoting its new shows to an eager audience of advertisers.
And since a picture is worth a thousand words, a bunch of trailers for the new NBC shows were shown. Here they are, all together. Take a look after the jump!
It’s official now, dammit!
FOX has signed Kiefer Sutherland on to return to “24″, which is now officially a go for a limited run in May 2014.
The network will make the formal announcement at its upfront presentation later today, Deadline reports. “24: Live Another Day”, as it is called, will consist of 12 episodes.
In addition to announcing its fall schedule a few minutes ago, FOX has buried something else in that press release that should not be overlooked.
The network has picked up “Wayward Pines” to series, from M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense”) and starring Matt Dillon.
Formerly known as “Blake Crouch Pines”, the show sounds a bit like a mix between “Twin Peaks” and short-lived ABC series “Happy Town”, thematically.
But read for yourself.
