Everyone knows about this chance to develop a Fifth Doctor & Nyssa audio story, right? Who all is submitting something? I decided I might as well give it a try. Of course, first I have to come up with a good idea and then flesh it out, revise, proofread, and all of that.

I already printed out and read the instructions, which seem very straightforward: don't do this, format like this, etc. As long as I follow directions, I figure my submission won't land in the bin on the first round. If I use spellcheck and proofread, it should make it past the second round as well. Other than that, well, I think I'd better start brainstorming and come up with a great concept.

Also, in reading the BF boards, I'm a bit amazed that people are having so much trouble holding their summaries to five hundred words. That's the length of a decent ficlet!

Most pilots don't get picked up anyway, so this is no big surprise. The sets for "Rex is Not Your Lawyer" (the dreadful-sounding David Tennant pilot) are coming down. Still, NBC has five extra hours to fill now that Jay Leno has moved back to late night, which would have seemed to improve Rex's chances; they must not have liked what they saw in it. Supposedly, this show is on hold but remains under consideration for the fall. Yeah, right. That's code for don't expect this one to ever make it onscreen. "On hold" has a similar meaning to "episode number has been reduced." It's now a longshot.

Speaking of which, the episode order for Numbers was reduced.

Renewed (new shows): The Good Wife, The Middle, Cougar Town, NCIS: Los Angeles, Glee, Modern Family.

Be especially concerned about: Ugly Betty, Cold Case, The Forgotten, Old Christine, Gary Unmarried, Accidentally on Purpose, Trauma (which keeps getting picked up for additional episodes despite awful ratings), Mercy, Scrubs, Better Off Ted, Medium, Melrose Place, and of course, Numbers. FlashForward, Castle, and Heroes are also in doubt. Plus, Lie to Me and/or Fringe could be out. OTOH, both might barely survive.
