TV renewals: Will they or won’t they? Should they or should they not?

Network TV schedules usually seem really crowded at the end of the school year, with the full-season shows finishing up their runs while the mid-season replacements struggle to conclude their seasons by the end of May sweeps. As such, it’s time for a little clearing of the schedule to get rid of shows that shouldn’t exist anymore and make room for next season’s biggest hits.
