It's that time of year again. The various networks are deciding what to keep and what to throw out as they put together their 2010-11 primetime schedules.

As usual, some shows are canceled early ("Eastwick," anyone?) while others eek it out through the season, desperate for renewal ("FlashForward," "Heroes," and so on).

Network execs are looking at a new crop of freshman dramas, comedies, and reality shows, and they need to make room on their schedules. As a result, poor performing series are given the boot.

It's that time of year. You've checked out the new shows and by now you know if you love them or hate them.

Since CNN has such a blast creating a report card to track the Presidency, we decided to have some fun with television. Which networks come out strong and which ones need to do better homework?
