April typically is the month when we ponder the odds of survival for prime-time shows. Which ones will be canceled? Which ones will live to fight another season?

Typically, we get our answers in May, the month designated by the major broadcast networks for announcing their fall lineups. But the 2007-08 television season has been anything but typical.

The three-month writers strike changed the traditional rules, prompting the networks to make many decisions earlier than usual. ABC and the CW, for instance, borrowed a page from the CBS playbook, announcing early renewals for several shows.

CBS loves this trick. It's a show of confidence in your favorite prime-time players, and it lands you twice as much publicity
