Here's news that didn't come as a big surprise. Fox has nixed a second-season renewal for the time-travel prehistoric drama "Terra Nova." The series was not a runaway hit in the U.S. But there had been hopes of a second series because it has made money overseas for Fox's parent studio 20th Century Fox TV, despite its high production costs. The studio now plans to shop "Terra Nova" to other networks. Fox will have several holes to fill on its fall lineup drama-wise, with the departure of "Terra Nova" and the end of "House. Midseason entries "Alcatraz" and "The Finder" are on the bubble for a second season, and cult favorite "Fringe" could get a 13-episode order if--and only if--producers scale back costs on the sci-fi drama. Fox is hoping for a hit with the new Kiefer Sutherland series "Touch," which debuts later this month.
