Up Fronts Announced

The networks -- well, most of them -- have announced which shows made and didn't make the upcoming fall schedule.



Here's a rundown:



FOX: Among the dramas are a new series called "Lone Star" and two half-hour shows, "Raising Hope" and "Running Wilde." "The Good Guys" is getting the "Glee" treatment -- Fox will air the pilot this week, but not air any other episodes until next season.



As usual, Fox is saving some of its stuff for midseason, which will include the new animated show "Bob's Burgers," plus half-hour show "Mixed Signals" and drama "Ride-Along."



The rest of the Fox lineup won't change dramatically, save of course for the retirement of "24" in a couple of weeks.



NBC: Not surprisingly, the Peacock is revamping much of its lineup following another fourth-place finish this year. Gone are mainstays such as "Law & Order" and "Heroes."



New shows include: "The Event," a global conspiracy show; "Chase," about US Marshals hunting fugitives; "Outlaw," starring Jimmy Smits as a Supreme Court judge who resigns to start his own law firm; and "School Pride," a reality show about education from Cheryl Hines.



New comedies include "Outsourced," which will replace "Parks & Recreation" until midseason, and the hour-long "Love Bites," with Becki Newton and Jordana Spiro. Midseason pickups include "Perfect Couples," "Harry's Law" and "Friends With Benefits."



ABC: The twonotable pickups include "Body of Proof," starring Dana Delany as a medical examiner and "Off The Map," another medical drama from "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rimes. They'll join "Detroit 187," "No Ordinary Family," "Mr. Sunshine," which stars Matthew Perry and Allison Janney, "Happy Endings," "Better Together," "The Whole Truth" and "My Generation."



Definitely gone, as reported last week, are "FlashForward," "Scrubs," "Better Off Ted" and "Romantically Challenged." 



There are some series that have been rumored at various networks that haven't been announced, but may do so in the future, such as the Steven Spielberg produced "Terra Nova" at Fox and a remake of "The Rockford Files" at NBC, which has tested poorly but isn't dead yet.



CBS and CW haven't officially unveiled their lineups yet.



MONDAY'S BEST BETS: Guest stars abound tonight on "How I Met Your Mother," (CBS, 8 p.m.) as Stella's husband writes a movie based loosely on her life with Ted. The rest of the sitcoms are new as well, as is "CSI: Miami" at 10 p.m.



"House's" season finales (Fox, 8 p.m.) are always memorable, and tonight's looks to be no exception. It's followed by one of the final "24s" at 9 p.m.



ABC winds down on "Dancing With The Stars" at 8 p.m., followed by a new "Castle" at 10 p.m.



Scott Bakula returns to a new "Chuck" (NBC, 8 p.m.), followed by a new "Law & Order."



The CW wraps up the seasons tonight of "One Tree Hill" and "Gossip Girl."



On cable, there are new episodes of "Nurse Jackie" and "United States of Tara" from 10-11 p.m.
