TV News and Tidbits 5/12/12 - 12 AM version

Another big day of renewals and cancellations. CBS is the last network left which hasn't made important decisions, and it certainly has ones we'll look for--CSI: NY/Miami.

CW renews Gossip Girl for a shortened season, Hart of Dixie, and Nikita, cancels The Secret Circle, The Ringer [Deadline]
- Nothing spectacularly unexpected--like canceling GG or HoD--but I didn't expect it to go this way either. So what lessons did we learn from this? Either we can say that Nikita being on Friday helped or, as Deadline says, Nikita is a big international seller. Without specific numbers, it's hard to say anything.

NBC cancels Harry's Law, Awake, Bent, Are You There, Chelsea?, and Best Friends Forever [Deadline]
- Nothing unexpected here. I guess Harry's Law more so than the others since it was miraculously renewed last year (still not sure what all that was about), but the writing was clearly on the wall.

NBC renews Parks and Recreation, Up All Night, and Whitney [Deadline]
- Up All Night only gets 13 episodes.

ABC renews a bunch of shows, cancels GCB [Deadline]
- It looks like ABC is trying to push Body of Proof to syndication even if its ratings are the same as GCB's.
