NBC surprised no one by renewing Night Court for a third season last week. Lopez vs Lopez wrapped its second season with its usual Jekyll and Hyde numbers. The George Lopez-led series and Extended Family are still waiting to hear their fates. NBC has several new comedies in the pipeline so it's likely only one will be renewed.

FOX ran a repeat of The Simpsons last week, and without a strong lead-in the rest of the Sunday animated shows suffered, losing an average of two hundred thousand viewers each half hour. The Cleaning Lady returned after a week off, down almost one hundred thousand viewers. Alert: Missing Persons Unit picked up one hundred thousand viewers over its last new episode. So You Think You Can Dance lost another hundred thousand viewers it couldn't afford.

CW announced All American: Homecoming will premiere July 8. Still no word on the future of All-American or Walker. Penn & Teller: Fool Us is currently vetting acts for its next season, so while nothing has been officially announced, it sounds like the series will be back next season. All American picked up a few tens of thousands of viewers last week. Walker dropped nearly one hundred thousand viewers. Patti Stranger: Matchmaker was even. Lover and Liars was up a smidge, but likely not enough to keep it around.
