 INT. ANDREW & EDISON'S DORM - DAY

Open inside Andrew and Edison’s dorm. It is empty. The door opens and Andrew and Edison enter. They drop their bags. Andrew begins unpacking his things. Edison falls on his bed.

EDISON
I can’t believe it’s over. Why is it over? We barely had a break.

ANDREW
We had almost a month.

EDISON
It wasn’t enough.

Edison reaches under his pillow and pulls out a Milky Way bar. He unwraps it and starts eating it.

ANDREW
It’s a new semester man. New classes, new professors, and maybe even new friends.

EDISON
Is that suppose to make me feel better?

Brittaney appears in the doorway. Edison see her and sits up. They smile at each other. Brittaney runs over to Edison and the two start making out.

ANDREW
Seriously guys?

Sarah appears in the doorway. Andrew sees her. They faintly smile at each other.

SARAH
Hey.

ANDREW
Hey.

SARAH
Hey Britt.

BRITTANEY
Hey.

SARAH
Edison.

Edison doesn't answer and instead continues to make out with Brittaney.

Calvin appears next to Sarah.

CALVIN
{To Sarah}
Hey you ready?

Sarah nods.

SARAH
Hey Calvin and I are going to The College Club. Y’all wanna join.

BRITTANEY
Yeah.

EDISON
Now?

BRITTANEY
Don't worry we’ll continue later.

SARAH
Andrew?

ANDREW
Sounds great.

Edison and Brittaney stand up.

ANDREW
Y’all go ahead. I’m gonna finish unpacking.

Sarah, Calvin, Edison, and Brittaney leave. Andrew continues unpacking.

FLASHBACK

Andrew and Sarah are kissing outside of the dorm building elevator. Sarah pulls back.

SARAH
I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that.

ANDREW
But you did.

SARAH
I knew you liked me. Or at least I had a feeling.

ANDREW
Why didn’t you say anything?

SARAH
I was waiting for you to say something.

ANDREW
Ok. Well I’m gonna say it now. Sarah I like you. I think you’re amazing. There.

SARAH
Andrew-


ANDREW
So how’re you gonna break it to Calvin?

SARAH
Break what to him?

ANDREW
Well you're obviously gonna break up with him now right?

SARAH
No.

ANDREW
What?

SARAH
Andrew, I like Calvin. We have a good relationship. I’m not just gonna ditch him just because you say you like me.

Andrew looks defeated.

SARAH
Andrew I really believe that you’ll find someone.

ANDREW
What if that someone’s in front of me?

SARAH
Andrew. I’m sorry. I hope we can be friends.

ANDREW
I don’t think we can even be that.

Andrew exits the building.

EDISON
Me too!

Edison and Calvin high five. Andrew looks confused.

CALVIN
What about you Britt?

As the group talks, Andrew begins to zone out. The noise around him becomes nothing more than echos. Sarah stares at Andrew with concern.

INT. ANDREW & EDISON’S DORM - NIGHT

Andrew and Edison enter their dorm.

ANDREW
So I guess you and Calvin are best buds now.

EDISON
I guess. He’s a cool guy. Said he could get us into parties.

ANDREW
Huh.

EDISON
You alright dude?

Andrew sits on his bed.

ANDREW
Sarah and I kissed.

EDISON
Whoa whoa whoa hold up. When?

ANDREW
Before we left for winter break.

EDISON
That was like a month ago and you didn't tell me?

ANDREW
She just wants to be friends.

EDISON
Is that really such a bad thing? I mean you two are good friends.

ANDREW
Maybe you’re right.

EDISON
Maybe?

ANDREW
And who knows, maybe I’ll meet someone this semester.

EDISON
That’s the spirit. Now, what should we do now?

ANDREW
I’m going to bed. We have classes tomorrow remember?

EDISON
That’s exactly why I want to do something.

ANDREW
Goodnight Edison.

I’m Gabby.

ANDREW
Andrew.

The professor walks in. Andrew smiles.

INT. ANDREW & EDISON’S DORM - DAY

Andrew enters his dorm. Edison is at his desk typing on his computer.


ANDREW
Are you actually doing homework?

EDISON
It’s for creative writing. I have to write a short story.

ANDREW
What’s it about?

EDISON
Well at first I started writing Fifty Shades of Grey fan fiction which then morphed into Star Wars fan fiction and then that morphed into Harry Potter fan fiction. Wanna hear what I have so far?

ANDREW
Sure.

EDISON
The wizard pulled out his wand. The jedi’s lightsaber ignited. Mr. Grey pulled out his whip and-

ANDREW
You know what, I’m good.

EDISON
Suit yourself. How was classes?

ANDREW
Most of them easy. I did meet someone. Her name is Gabby.

EDISON
Gabby? Who’s Gabby?

ANDREW
Someone I met in Literature.

EDISON
Oh boy.

ANDREW
What?


EDISON
I just don’t want this to be another Sarah situation.

ANDREW
Relax. I learned my lesson. I’m gonna get to know her better and then I’m gonna ask her out. No more being scared.

EDISON
Good for you man.

There is a knock at the door. Andrew answers it. It is Sarah.

SARAH
Hey. Can we talk?

ANDREW
Sure.

Sarah enters the dorm. Andrew and Sarah look at Edison to leave. Edison rolls his eyes and gets up to leave.

EDISON
This is my dorm too you know.

Edison leaves.

SARAH
I wanted to apologize.

ANDREW
For what?

SARAH
I feel like I shot you down.

ANDREW
Sarah it’s ok. I’m fine. I’m over it.


SARAH
So you're ok with being friends?

ANDREW
{Smiling}
Of course.

Sarah smiles back.

ANDREW
Wanna go get a milkshake?

SARAH
Yeah.

INT. THE COLLEGE CLUB - NIGHT

Andrew and Sarah sit at a table in The College Club. They laugh and drink milkshakes. Andrew sees Gabby.

ANDREW
Hey I’ll be right back.

Andrew leaves and goes up to Gabby.

ANDREW
Hey.

GABBY
Hey. Andrew right?

ANDREW
Yeah.

GABBY
You here with your girlfriend?

Gabby gestures at Sarah.

ANDREW
No. She’s a friend.

GABBY
So you’re single?

ANDREW
Yes.

GABBY
I find that hard to believe.

Andrew and Gabby laugh. Sarah sees this and looks confused.

ANDREW
I just wanted to say hi. If you ever want to hang with my group you can.

GABBY
I’d like that.

ANDREW
Cool. Well, I should get back. See you in class.

GABBY
Bye.

Andrew returns to Sarah.

SARAH
Who was that?

ANDREW
Gabby. We met in Literature.

SARAH
Are you two…


ANDREW
No. Not yet at least.

SARAH
Oh. Well I’m sure it’ll work out.

ANDREW
Thanks. Here I’ll get you another shake.

Andrew picks up their glasses and leaves. Sarah looks over at Gabby.

I've gotten comments on All American being a terrible prediction and all that jazz. But you know as well as I do that the CW is one of the hardest networks to predict correctly, just like FOX. With All American, we could expect a bump on Netflix, but that bump is only going to last a short time. The only plausible solution would be that it would be getting a tax credit to subsidize for next season and that would be enough to cover the cost of producing the show.

In the Dark was strictly renewed to cover the quota for CBS Studios. There still is no buzz for the show as of today's renewal.

Roswell was the only correct prediction from today's renewals, as I understandably pushed on The 100 due to it essentially being a summer show.

Why did the CW essentially renew everything? Simply, they did not wait to decide on pilots. This means the CW did not have much faith in their pilots for next season. If they did, the chart would tell a different story today or even in May.

All shows will be back next season officially, and thus, my work is done. TVRG will be back next season for CW predictions.
