The peacock network has released the Fall 2010 premiere dates for their new and returning programs.
As previously announced, 13 weeks of The Apprentice has replaced Love Bites on the schedule. According to NBC, the show hasn’t been cancelled, just delayed until later in the season. Cindy Chupack left as showrunner and Becki Newton, who plays one of the few regular characters, is pregnant and they felt it would be too difficult to shoot around her condition. Jordanna Sparo was supposed to be part of the cast but TBS refused to release her from her My Boys contract so they ended up dropping her and eliminating her part altogether.
Here’s the official press release from NBC with the premiere dates…
