Thanks to shortened seasons on cable and streaming, more than 30 shows are returning and more than 60 new shows are launching to make the May 31 Primetime Emmys cutoff date, according to Variety's Michael Schneider. "Things are so out of control that we have dueling shows titled Anatomy of a Scandal and A Very British Scandal premiering just days apart, both about impropriety in the U.K.!" says Schneider, who lists many of the shows with late April and May premieres. "The next several weeks is utter madness, and I ran out of room to list even more shows set to launch. This programming dump this late in the eligibility calendar doesn’t help anyone. Everyone gets lost in the shuffle, and the Emmy front-runners wind up being series that premiered months ago. If I were to run for Mayor of Television, my platform would be simple: Dump the dump!"
