As the line for what defines a broadcast hit and a miss continues to erode, the networks are increasingly showing a willingness to be patient with rookie shows as they look to better understand delayed viewing and how streaming plays a role in a program's total viewership.

It's with that in mind that the five broadcast networks begin to assemble their primetime scripted schedules for the 2020-21 television season. Amid the frenzy of pilot season, ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW consider ownership, international sales and a show's long tail of delayed viewing across multiple platforms as they make their decisions about which shows live to tell another story and which, well, won't.

This season, it will be particularly interesting to see if broadcasters hand out early renewals as that could be a sign of networks and studios looking to get a jump on scripts for next season amid the looming threat of a Writers Guild of America strike. The current agreement expires May 1 and, per sources, studios have begun stockpiling scripts for next season instead of seeing writers take their traditional hiatus.

In keeping with tradition, here's The Hollywood Reporter's handy guide to help keep track of what's coming back, what's canceled and what's been added to the 2020-21 schedule at ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW. Keep checking back through upfronts as we continue to update this accordingly based on the latest information.
