TV Round-Up: Renewals and Cancellations

This week is all shows getting their new season approvals and shows getting the axe.

This season's new big hit, The Mentalist, gets a full season. And here's why Simon Baker thinks it's a different kind of procedural.

Ditto Sons of Anarchy. Full season.

Entourage films 6th Season next year.

My Boys gets a third season.

The Riches is off the air.

Burn Notice and Psych are renewed.

British comedy Absolutely Fabulous gets an American remake via Fox.

I said it before and I'll say it again: it was a publicity stint for Californication!

David E. Kelly is working on a new legal drama. With Boston Legal's last season this year, Eli Stone should be the only legal show on regular TV. Doctor shows, we've got tons of. Lawyers, not so much.

Jason Priestly will actually be back on 90210.... to direct an episode.

10 Things I Hate About You is going to TV. That's the trend now I guess....turn movies into TV Series? Crash is going to debut soon.

The girls of Gossip Girls are not appearing on 30 Rock anymore.
