With TV upfronts just around the corner, broadcast networks have been scrambling to make some tough calls. Fox has now decreed the fates of its three freshman dramas, axing J.J. Abrams‘ Alcatraz and its Bones spinoff The Finder while re-upping on Kiefer Sutherland‘s Touch. On the animated side, American Dad and Family Guy are slated to return while Cleveland Show and Napoleon Dynamite continue to await a decision.
Meanwhile, the network has been loading up on brand-new pilots, including a serial killer thriller starring Kevin Bacon, a comedy from Mindy Kaling, the inanely-titled Mob Doctor, and more. Details after the jump.
