TV Squad states Moonlight is likely to get a second season pickup

AOL Television's TV Squad website lists Moonlight as a bubble show that is "likely to be renewed." :)

What shows are on the bubble for next season?

The Hollywood Reporter has an article today that both breaks my heart and makes me ecstatic for the next television season. The article, citing lots of anonymous sources, lists shows that are "on the bubble" for next season -- meaning renewal is not certain--and predicts their likelihood of renewal.

Interestingly (and tragically), The CW's Reaper appears to be on the chopping block. Tonight's ratings for Reaper could tip the balance, as a new episode goes up against a new episode of Lost. While many critics think Reaper has lost its way since the pilot, I think it's been pretty much on track. We even got a new story line during the last episode where Sam meets a new love interest, aka the devil's daughter. The dialogue is clever, the lead actor is lovable, and his sidekicks are, well, a kick. Although, if I didn't have a way to record both shows, I would probably choose Lost over Reaper tonight.

Likely to be canceled: Reaper, Jericho [ Sadly, already true :( ], Cashmere Mafia

Likely to be renewed: How I Met Your Mother, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Scrubs (probably on ABC), Knight Rider (a series spawned from that crap movie), Friday Night Lights, Moonlight, Law & Order, Prison Break, According to Jim, 'Til Death, Back to You.

Gee, finally we're starting to see the " Moonlight " at the end of this loooong tunel...with the possibility of our show being renewed for a 2nd season. It would be nice if the announcement will come with the finale of the 4-5 epis!! Come on CBS it's time you reward the loyal fan(g)s of MOONLIGHT!! I'm feeling very hopeful!!

This is great news for my Moonlight Fridays but I am quite saddened for Reaper.
