Summer of failure for broadcast TV

Will broadcast television rebound this fall?

This summer is one for the record books: more than a dozen new programs launched on broadcast television and not one breakout hit, with returning shows down and ratings at an all-time low.

The failing and floundering programs are in a wide range of genres and from every broadcaster.

There seems to be no clear trend that the programs have in common -- other than failing.

How is your favorite program measuring up?
