TV Pulse - What Shows are Renewed, Canceled or on the Bubble?

As we move into the summer TV season, it seems like a good time to "check the pulse" of the 2008/2009 TV shows.  Which ones have been renewed, which ones are in good shape and which ones are likely to be canceled?

Below is a list of TV shows - mostly scripted although there are a few reality TV shows listed also.  Those marked canceled and renewed are confirmed based on multiple sources.  The ones "leaning towards" are based on my own opinion taking into account the ratings and "buzz" surrounding the various shows:
