The five leading US networks are taking a new tack for the upcoming 2013/2014 season. After a fairly lackluster year, CBS, Fox, ABC, NBC and CW have decided to keep only 10 of their new series going and, for the rest, to bank on comedies and short-run drama series.
Of the 52 series picked up to enhance the fall lineups, 22 are angling for TV viewers' funny bones. With the exception of CW, which won't be programming any comedies, the American networks are putting a lot of their money on laughs for the next TV season.
