We'd be hard pressed to say who had the most brutal of cancellations and fruitful pickups between the five major networks this weekend, but few would offer that NBC had any undeserved ends. Even so, the peacock has become the first among the five to set its major schedule, moving 'Revolution' and 'Parenthood' to new nights, scheduling Jonathan Rhys-Meyers 'Dracula' for fall and moving 'Community' and more to midseason! Get the lowdown on NBC's new lineup inside!

Season 2 of 'Grimm' is winding down, and so a lot of the season-long issues are finally being resolved. Juliette's memory is coming back, the key may actually mean and lead to something, Wu might get more to do every episode or so, etc. etc. Tonight's episode "Kiss of the Muse" brings in guest star Nora Zehetner (co-star of 'Brick') and it looks like it might wrap up some of this Juliette/coma stuff. At least, we can hope.
It's a quick turnaround for a new 'Grimm' episode, as we just had a new episode Friday. but 'Grimm' has moved to Tuesday nights, and it'll be interesting to see if the shift helps or hurts, as it's maintained solid ratings on a night that's generally considered dead. But the schedule shift shouldn't change the show too much (at least not yet) as it's heading into the home stretch of its second season, and we're curious to see how they wrap it all up.
After a little break, 'Grimm' returns to hopefully wrap up some of Juliette's issues as she keeps seeing the ghost of Nick. You almost feel bad for actress Bitsie Tulloch as the amnesia has been pretty much the only thing her character has been dealing with this entire season, while all the other main characters (save Wu) now know Nick's secret.
Holy cow! It's not even May and already NBC has taken drastic steps toward renewing five of its major drams, both new and old. Over the wire we've learned that 'Revolution,' 'Grimm,' 'Parenthood,' 'Law & Order: SVU' and 'Chicago Fire' have all received episode orders for the 2013-14 season, but will they offer full seasons? Find out what's coming back and whose fate hangs in the balance inside!
It's that time again! With the Upfront presentations set to begin in the next few weeks, all the major networks have begun to trim the hedges and tighten a few loose ends before the ultimate presentations. The latest to shake things up is NBC, who has announce the cancellation of struggling reality series 'Ready For Love,' moving the surprisingly-durable 'Grimm' to Tuesdays for the foreseeable future. Could that be a sign of good things to come for the quietly-steady NBC drama?
This seems to be the make or break episode for Juliette. At the end of last season Detective Nick Burkhardt was trying to tell her that he was a Grimm, but she fell into a coma and has spent this entire season unable to remember him. Will this plot point continue for the rest of the season, or are they finally going to wrap it up? That's the big question in tonight's episode of 'Grimm.'
We're now in the back half of the second season of 'Grimm,' and there's been a lot put on the table in terms of the drama, but not a lot of answers. Juliette is still kept in the dark, and is suffering the fate of a lot of TV girlfriends in shows like this, while Detective Nick Berkhardt and Captain Renard are still on uneasy ground. Tonight's episode, "Nameless," looks to be another monster episode of the week, but hopefully it starts putting the pieces together for the season's conclusion.
After a long run of episodes that have changed the playing field of 'Grimm,' we're now in a stretch that can be considered one-off's. These latest episodes aren't driven by by big, life changing events for Detective Nick Burkhardt and crew, but are more about the monsters/mystery/procedural aspects of the show. And that's not so bad.Tonight's one-off is "Mr. Sandman" and it's a solid little thriller.
So 'Grimm' is back in the swing of things after a near fourth month absence, and it's finally sorting out the big story arc of the season. Finally Juliette is out of her coma, and finally Detective Nick Brukhardt and Captain Renard know each other's secrets. Tonight's episode "Natural Born Wesen" looks like it will be more of a one-off, but we bet they get into some of the issues that were raised last week.
