    • Vaughn

      Kyle, try reading the article. Sheesh.

      p.s. Undercovers needs a (new) tag.

      • Kyle

        i did! i corrected my self less than a minute later as evidenced by the following comment.

      • :P

        this is a bad, i mean a BAD! schedule… why is Community leading thursday????why is chuck on Monday?? I love chuck, but i think it would probly have a better chance on Friday than monday!! And why did they order like 5 Comedy’s if they wernt gna open up another comedy night???? what a waste…..

    • S.


    • KyleCantRead

      Where’ 30 rock and Community and and the Biggest Loser…..what’s NBC….where am I? Who’s talking? My cats breath smells like catfood.

      • angie

        maybe they’re holding ‘parks and rec’ until midseason because amy pohler is having a baby ??

      • Hiro Kitty

        NBC has their heads up their asses. Parks is brilliant, and this Outsourced sounds supremely stupid.

      • LisaP

        amen hiro kitty. i hate nbc. p&r is their best show on thurs. but no, dummies at nbc, keep milking the office.

      • Shawn

        I don’t know about the series, but check out Outsourced the movie. It’s smart and funny and full of jabs about soulless corporate jerks and the decisions they make. “Mr Toad” is totally changed by his experience.

    • Elizabeth

      Parks move to mid-season… might have something to do with Amy Poehler’s pregnancy….

      • Laurie

        I agree Elizabeth. It was the first thing I thought – cause she is the star and should be due end of summer/ early fall.

  • Kyle

    oops! i should read more closely…

    • LOL

      I hope you’re right bsr. It might be the best show on NBC. I’d hate to see them screw it up.

  • Will

    Ausiello stated it’s being held until midseason. And I can’t believe L&O is really gone. :(

    • DivaSoulSista

      And by the looks of this schedule, they could have kept L&O for at least one more season. I don’t see any of these new shows that I would consider watching. I’m even on the fence about LOLA

  • klutzy_girl

    I think Parks and Rec is being moved to midseason because of Amy’s pregnancy.

    • Liz

      I’m pretty sad that P&R is going to be a mid season show this year!!! I love it. P&R and Community are the best of Thursday’s on NBC.

  • Marcus

    I won’t even need to turn NBC on anymore? Nice.

    • For real

      Really NBC, I don’t know why I should tune in. Nothing on your schedule interests me at all.

  • Lisa

    What about The Cape? They’re seriously saving that for mid-season? Jerks.

    • James Lyman

      Where is Good wife

    • bklynny

      I know. It’s ridiculous to wait for The Cape next season. They should have showed that instead of those lame looking sitcoms.
      Outsourced and Love Botes. Please.

      • bklynny


  • Sam

    Why am I not seeing The Good Wife on here?

    • hello

      Because that is CBS?

      • Sam

        Whoops! I forgot there was one drama show on CBS that I actually enjoyed!

  • hello

    Monday is bad

    • Katarzyna

      Watch “Castle” on ABC on 10/9 PM on Mondays :)

  • margaret


    • Bob

      Midsseason just like the article says

  • alexandra

    I’m happy for Chase, I’m a big Cole Hauser fan !

  • Dee

    Gah, Parenthood just doesn’t work for me in that timeslot. I want to watch it but it’s up against The Good Wife.

    • Liz

      I watch Parenthood on Hulu and I would like it to be on earlier. I think they should cut Biggest Loser to one hour and move Parenthood to 9PM.

      • Kvivik

        Yeah…whats with biggest loser being 2 hours??? Who watches the whole show?

      • DivaSoulSista

        So SVU is a 9PM show and Parenthood is a 10PM show? Like someone said earlier, I don’t think NBC even watches their own shows!

    • Carrie

      Yup- I DVR Parenthood to watch on Wednesday and watch “The Good Wife” in real time. Both shows are awesome- NBC should pimp Parenthood harder, it’s good…second favorite new drama (hell, drama period) after “The Good Wife”.

      • Iggy

        I agree. The Good Wife and Parenthood are not only the best “new” dramas this season but two of the best overall.

    • James

      I’m with you, I just don’t get why Parenthood is on at 10pm. I would think Parenthood is a good family show that deserves an 8pm time slot.
      How is a show about family on at 10pm while SVU is about terrible crimes being commited on at 9? I love SVU but its a 10pm show.

      • Sarah

        agree, they should flip-flop Parenthood and SVU.

    • Shawn

      There’s really no need to have a stockpile of good shows competing with each other. Yes, you can Hulu Parenthood or the Good Wife, but how do you get the all important Nielson ratings for the Hulued show?

  • James

    Purely from a content point of view I had hoped Chuck might move to 9 or 10 rather than 8, just to let it kick it up a gear, but frankly: it got another season at all, so I won’t complain.

  • conan

    chuck is a dead show, poor nbc

    • Johnification

      Yeah, NBC has no business keeping shows with fervorous, loyal followings on the air when they as a network are so hated.

      That, by the way, was sarcasm.

      • AuntieMM

        Agree with your sarcasm. Go Chuck!!!!!! I’m not happy with it’s time slot but it continues to grow an audience.

      • Vikki Sixx

        It really is a dead show if they keep it in the Monday at 8 pm slot with all new shows following it. :(

      • Alia

        Bazinga. But “ferverous”?

    • Kasia

      I don’t understand why everyone is worried about Chuck staying at 8 pm on Mondays. It has been there for years and it’s still kicking. Just keep watching it.

  • Kristin

    Where’s Jay Leno?!? Oh, wait…

    • PJ

      Kicking butt at 11:30.

      • Brian

        If by “kicking but” you mean appeasing idiot masses with schlock and mediocrity, then you’re right.

  • BlatantURLPimpingMustDie

    2nd-grade level reading comprehension continues to be a challenge for many here. Sigh.

    • Kasia

      Agreed. Not to mention the fact that people don’t try reading the whole article anyway.
