The schedules will often experience a few tweaks over the summer but usually most of it remains in place from what is revealed in the upfronts.

CW: Hellcats, Nikita

Sad to see some favorites go, especially Law & Order which isn't getting the send off it has earned, but that is typical of NBC. Of the new shows, only a few grab my interest. I intend to try out The Cape, Love Bites (because of Jordana Spiro and Becki Newton hotness), Perfect Couples (cause of Olivia Munn), Undercovers (spy show), No Ordinary Family (superhero fan), Body of Proof (cause of Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan), Terra Nova (Spielberg's involvement), Hawaii Five-O (pure curiosity), and Nikita (loved the original TV show). It looks like another year of recording one program while watching another.
