Fall Network SF TV Schedule Roundup

The boadcast networks cancelled five sci-fi and fantasy shows this season, but that hasn't dampened their enthusiasm for the genres. They ordered seven new SF shows for next season. That means the number of sci-fi and fantasy shows on the networks will hit a record high for the second year in a row. NBC picked up the most new SF shows, three. FOX ordered a pair, and CBS and ABC both picked up one each. Only the CW didn't order a new SF show.
