I've just been searching (and praying) *laughs*

The first link you posted said something about NBC releasing their slate to investors on Monday... don't they know the wait is driving us insane?! *laughs*

NBC is scheduled to unveil its complete slate to Madison Avenue buyers on Monday in New York.
bella is correct...this is a change from yesterday, which stated we would know TODAY...
now it's Monday that is the deadline date May 16th...... SIGH

Thanks for the exact quote, I'm usually online from my phone in the mornings and can't copy/paste. I remember orignally they said it would be released no later than May 16th so with any luck they will make the rest of the announcements today. Monday is just too far away.

Now this is really bad. I dreamt about it last night. At least if Jason had been in the dream if would have been ok but he wasn't.
Just a group of people talking about it. Phooey!

NBC is far from finished, however, and more announcements could come today as it preps for Monday's upfront sked presentation in Gotham.

Also considered strong contenders are "The Playboy Club," about a high-end nightclub in the 1960s, and "Awake," from scribe Kyle Killen
In Zap2it forum, they are saying that those 4 shows are 'in-house' meaning produced by Universal (NBC parent company). NBC is spending today hashing out licensing deals with 20th Fox for Awake .

Let's hope it's true.

Now that we know that Awake was picked up I wonder if Jason will appear at the "Network upfronts" to talk up his new show. Isn't that where the critics, advertisers and others show up to get insight into the new shows?

And he's always been cooperative as far as publicity is concerned. I also expect to see him on some of the talk shows.
