Upfronts 2014: NBC tries to build on its first-place finish by leaning on 'The Blacklist'

Lots of new shows, not a lot of places to put them just yet

A very strange thing happened to NBC this year: for the first time in a decade — a period during which it has mostly been a laughingstock — it will finish a season in first place among the adults 18-49 demographic that advertisers care about most. Ordinarily, a network that wins a season can play things conservatively for the next year, but NBC's success isn't entirely replicable. Yes, the network's buoyed by regular, season-long programming like "The Voice" and hit freshman drama "The Blacklist," but a lot of credit for that win comes from "Sunday Night Football," which always goes away in January (leaving the network's ratings on that night a shambles), and some from the Winter Olympics, which won't be back for another four years.

ABC reportedly cancels 'Trophy Wife' & 'Mixology'

One show got the post-'Modern Family' timeslot that should've gone to the other

In the age of DVRs, On Demand, Hulu and other options for DIY TV scheduling, timeslots matter less than they used to, but they still matter. Enough people still watch TV passively, leaving the same channel on after their favorite, that a show no one cares about like "The Millers" can be renewed entirely because it's paired with a monster like "The Big Bang Theory," while it's miraculous to see a new show succeed (or even survive) without a good lead-in.

Review: Showtime's 'Penny Dreadful' does a literary monster mash-up

Timothy Dalton, Eva Green and Josh Hartnett star in Victorian era horror show from John Logan

Showtime's new horror series "Penny Dreadful" is several recent creative devices rolled into one entertaining, if largely nonsensical, package. Like "True Detective" and "Fargo," it's a prestige cable series where all the episodes come from the same writer — in this case, John Logan ("Skyfall") — and in its early going is highlighted by some gorgeous and unconventional for television directing from J.A. Bayona ("The Orphanage"), though the first season will ultimately have four different directors. (Each of them directs two at a time.) And like "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (the great comic book, not the dumb movie), it takes characters and plot elements from multiple classics of English literature and places them into the same fantastical story.
