And the TV news keeps on coming. Following ABC’s spring-cleaning from earlier, NBC and CBS have decided to get in on the fall schedule action. Via TV Line, the peacock has decided to renew Chuck, the show that will not die, for one final season. The show will reportedly return for 13 episodes, before bowing out permanently. Additionally, NBC has cancelled Lost look-alike The Event, whose season finale apparently also can serve as a satisfying series finale. The show may not be completely dead, however, because Deadline reports that producers are looking to take it to another outlet (Netflix was mentioned as a possibility).

NBC also cancelled underperformer Law and Order: LA and the fairly racist Outsourced. Additionally, the folks over at CBS have picked up the J.J. Abrams/Jonah Nolan (screenwriter of The Dark Knight) thriller Person of Interest starring Lost’s Michael Emerson. The network has also picked up the Kat Dennings sitcom Broke Girls, which pits the actress opposite Beth Behrs as two 22-year-olds struggling to “make their dreams come true” in New York City.
