Getting a jump on the week of network announcements, NBC released a first look at their upcoming primetime schedule for Fall of the 2010-11 season.
As was expected, NBC will have a lot of new programming on the schedule next season. When The Jay Leno Show didn’t work out, that left execs with five hours of empty space to fill. And now, they’ve also cancelled many of their under-performing shows. That means that they’ll have seven hours of new shows each week — essentially a third of their schedule. Come mid-season, you can expect even more freshman shows to join in.
New to the schedule are The Event, Chase, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Love Bites, Outlaw (formerly Garza), Outsourced, School Pride, and Undercovers.
Joining the peacock network in midseason (or sooner if other shows tank) are The Cape, Friends with Benefits, Harry’s Law, The Paul Reiser Show (formerly Next), and Perfect Couples.
Returning for a third season, Parks and Recreation, is being held until mid-season. Chuck, which was held until mid-year this season, will reappear in the fall.
