Upfront, but already behind -- NBC

Our ratings have to be
around here somewhere
Happy Upfronts Week!!  It's like Christmas for people who have nothing better to do.

For those unfamiliar, Upfronts is the time when network execs announce their new shows and overall schedule for the upcoming season while sucking up to ad agencies to get them to advertise on said shows.  The ad agencies, in turn, kiss their clients' asses while begging for them to pay millions for these advertisements.  Those clients then try to confuse you, the American public, into buying all the crap they're selling, thus justifying the millions they just blew.  So really, this week is all about you.  Congrats.

As we all know, a large chunk of these new programs won't survive the season.  In some cases, it's because they aren't any good.  In other cases, the show suffered from timeslot woes, rotten marketing or just bad luck.  Over the course of this week, we're gonna predict just which of these shows will suffer an untimely death at some point during the 2013-14 season.

As NBC announced their new shows on Sunday, we're going to start with them.  So take a few minutes and make your guesses in the poll below.  I'll keep you posted on the results.  And check back tomorrow for the next network, FOX.
