    The only new shows I care about are midseason ones! Smash and Awake. Oh well.

    • wsugar

      When is the Event on?

      • saeyedoc

        It’s not. They cancelled it.

  • Nick

    Chuck’s return is October?? Oh well

    • PJM

      I think they’re timing it so the final episode is the Friday before the Super Bowl.

    • LOL

      CHUCK ME!

    • zeo

      ugh I know right? waaahhhh it’s so far away!!! =*(

  • LOL

    Can’t wait for 9/22! Best night of comedy on TV with Community and Parks & Recreation.

  • Brad

    Am I blind or is 30 Rock missing from this schedule? What gives?!?

    • Johnny

      It has a late season premiere.

      • Friggin Tommy Noble

        Yeah, with 30 Rock in Whitney’s place, it would be the best scheduling setup NBC would have had in a long time.

  • Mr. Holloway

    “Series finale” of “America’s Got Talent”?

    Did I miss the part where NBC was doing so well that they can afford to cancel their biggest summer hit?

    • Champaign

      Perhaps you should read it again. It says “Season Finale”

      • Ann

        In the area where the dates are listed, it appears as “season finale.” But at the top, in the first paragraph, it says “series finale.” That’s a typo though, it’s obviously only a season finale.

      • Mr. Holloway

        I know it’s a typo.

        I was hoping my smart a$$ remark would spur the writer to correct her mistake…no such luck. Oh well.

      If you see Lynette’s byline on this site, assume there will be errors. She never gets her facts straight.

  • RCB

    I like Sing-off, and I’m looking forward to Grimm.

    • Michael

      They are going to RUIN the Sing-Off. There isn’t enough room for The Voice, AI, the X-Factor and The Sing-Off. They are all going to kill each other.

      • Melly

        Honestly I’m glad they are running so many reality singing/entertainment competitions. This way my DVR will get a rest. Is it just me or am I the only one sick of all these shows? Give me good scripted drama, and funny, original sitcoms like Community and Parks & Parks and Rec any day.

  • Kevin

    What’s up with 30 Rock? It’s the only award winning and one of the few critically praised shows on NBC. I’m hoping “Witney” is funny and I like Parks, The Office and Community but I will miss 30 Rock in the fall.

    • Kyla

      SVU is award winning and has been incredibly praised in the past.

    • Buffy Freak

      30 Rock’s debut is being pushed back due to Tina Fey’s pregnancy.

  • Rebecca

    Wow that is really bad, there are no new shows on Nbc that I am even partially interested in. None!

  • J

    Can’t wait for the return of The Sing-Off!

  • JJ

    Not a very exciting schedule. Anxious to sample THE PLAYBOY CLUB and PRIME SUSPECT, though. After seeing the extended trailer for PLAYBOY, it’s astonishing that NBC axed Jeff Hephner (HELLCATS) for the handsome but bland Eddie Cibrian.

  • JMJ

    Chuck is on Friday now? That stinks. Thank goodness for PVRs…

  • WillFerrellStinks

    Repeats on already after 2 weeks ? They don’t call it NBCheap for nothing !

  • Flip

    I’m interested in The Playboy Club and that’s it. NBC’s series don’t really interest me outside of The Voice.

  • Magnitude

    September 22 POP POP

    • DZ

      Good one.

  • Maddi

    I didn’t know Awake was a midseason. Drat, that was the only NBC show I really cared about.
