Headlines #2 for 5/13/13: What's in and what's out at FOX, NBC and CBS for Fall '13

PART TWO OF A TWO-PART SERIES TODAY
This part covers the Upfronts, when the broadcast networks
show off their fall schedules for the advertisers.
Fox Schedule Includes Its First Miniseries
The network said Monday it's making its largest original-programming investment yet with a crop of 11 new series and a miniseries from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan for the 2013-14 season. That's more than double the five series it announced last year. [AP/TVNewsCheck]

NBC's Fall Primetime Features 6 New Shows
NBC on Sunday became the first of the major broadcasters to announce its plans for next season, and its executives said they had ordered a staggering 17 new series. Only six of them are on fall's schedule, however, with another six to join in midseason when NBC hopes to get a burst of attention from its telecast of the Winter Olympics. [AP/TVNewsCheck]

CBS axes four shows, including ‘CSI: NY’
CBS evidently decided the devil you don’t know is better than the one you do. The network canceled four low-rated shows Friday to make room on its fall schedule for new programs. “Rules of Engagement,” “CSI: NY,” “Vegas” and “Golden Boy” have all been axed. [Media Life Magazine]
