    Each year, before every network announces their fall schedule, I like to make “my own” Fall Schedule for each network, deciding what shows stay and what shows go, and which pilots get picked up.

    The Hollywood Reporter is a huge help with this, because each year they keep an updated list of pilots in-development for each of the 5 major networks.

    So, if you had to decide, which shows would you cancel/renew, and which pilots would you pick-up?

    PICK UP
    Brooklyn Nine Nine
    The Goldbergs
    Trophy Wife
    The Crazy Ones

    Those are the only new network shows I’m really enjoying with Goldbergs and Brooklyn as the easy winners from this group. 

    I don’t miss Hostages, I will miss Super Fun Night because of the cast but I don’t mind it being cancelled.

    I’m gonna give Resurrection and Believe a shot tonight, but the names alone look repetitive, like Lost wannabes, boring and cancelled.

    Here’s the shows (I have an opinion about) I’d cancel/renew simply from a creative standpoint:
    Fox 
    I’d cancel: The Following/The Mindy Project/Dads/Raising Hope/Glee

    Raising Hope’s cancellation has been announced – its series finale is April 4.

    FOX
    Renew: The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad!, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, The Following (just because my mom likes the show)
    Cancel: Bob’s Burgers, Dads, Raising Hope, The Mindy Project

    See above about Raising Hope.
    Also, American Dad! is moving to TBS next season.  (There will be new episodes, in the same way Futurama (eventually) had new episodes when it moved to Comedy Central.)

    Fox:
    Sunday:

    8- The Simpsons
    8:30- Bob’s Burgers
    9- Family Guy
    9:30- unknown

    I think the plan right now is to add Bordertown (an animated series co-developed by Seth MacFarlane, in much the same way as he didn’t come up with the idea for American Dad! but it’s one of “his” shows) to the schedule, although Fox also said at one time that Murder Police would be on its schedule, and look at how that turned out.
    I have a feeling Fox is going to put a live-action hour show on Sunday night at 9, and move Bob’s Burgers to 7:30 (complete with the nine or so pre-emptions during football season that go with it).

    Simply, I would renew Community and cancel Agents of Shield and Two and a Half Men. All the other shows I like are likely to get renewed anyway.
