Welcome back to your regularly scheduled programming! The new and old series have made for a triumphant return of Fall TV, but don't get too attached to any new shows just yet. Just today, The CW announced that it's giving full-season pickups to Hellcats, Nikita, and One Tree Hill, but not all shows have been so lucky (and there are some whose fate hangs in the balance). Here's a rundown of the network pickups and cancellations to help you keep up with all the behind-the-scenes action.
