NBC announced their schedule for the fall and the spring and their new motto is “If it is broken, fix it!” At least that is what I am assuming it is because only three of the shows are keeping their timeslots. All the other shows are getting new ones and/or days. Let’s see it if works for them. I mean how much worse can it get?
When it comes to the changes they made, it will be interesting to see how it pans out for them. Moving a 10p show to 8p, will most likely change the feel of Revolution because it is on during a family. That should be interesting because the show has been so much more violent the second half of the season. And to be honest, so much better. When it comes to Parenthood moving it to Thursdays at 10p, I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing. I mean when NBC had “Must See Thursdays” it would make sense, but ever since they lost their Friends it has no longer been the case. So is it the network showing faith in the show, or have they given up on the night. Hopefully Chicago Fire won’t be hurt by it’s new night. I mean it worked for Smash airing after The Voice, oh wait… I also think that NBC made a smart move by trimming the fatty hour off of The Biggest Lose and having it air only once a year. People are burned out on too many reality shows.
Here’s to hoping they have a better season!
Here is the new lineup:

Next week the networks will announce their fall lineups, but today they are already saying which shows will be back and which ones won’t. CBS picked up it’s 20th show (which is about as many as NBC cancelled) for next season and that show is Criminal Minds. The CW still feels that Nikita has a fighting chance and The Carrie Diaries is still fashionable for them. NBC voted for another season of Parks and Recreation, but they impeached 1600 Penn, put Up All Night to sleep permanently, decided we don’t want to see any Guys with Kids and finally put Whitney out of our misery. When it comes to Fox, Randy Jackson told E! News that he voted himself off of American Idol after 12 seasons. Fox also decided that Kiefer Sutherland no longer has the Touch for them.
I always hate this time of year, my shows always get the bad news…:(
Yvette Nicole Brown Tweeted this picture of her with Cheryl Hines, Sarah Chalke and Sean Hayes getting ready for the soon-to-be-really-popular Hollywood Game Night, and Valerie Bertinelli totally photobombed the group shot. The Hot in Cleveland star proved she is hot at taking the thunder away from her boss Sean Hayes, who also created this winning show.
When it comes to Hollywood Game Night, I will be telling you more about the game show hosted by Jane Lynch that debuts on July 11th at 10p as we get closer to the air date, but what I will tell you now is that this is a show that everyone and their families will enjoy watching together. It’s like what Hollywood Squares and Match Game were back in their day, a lot of fun with celebrities doing and saying embarrassing stuff!
NBC has finally picked up some of its shows for next season and they are Revolution, Chicago Fire, Parenthood, Grimm and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The huge news is that all of the shows, yes including Parenthood, were picked up for 22 more episodes. So get your tissues ready?
So as you noticed these are all dramas, what about the comedies? NBC says they will announce some more renewals in the next few weeks. So maybe there is hope for Whitney. Joking please NBC put that show out of misery, paid for by people who like to laugh.
NBC announced today that they are pulling Ready for Love from their air effective immediately and they are not sure when or if it will be back.
Starting on Tuesday The Voice will expand to two hours and Grimm will move from Fridays at 9p to Tuesdays at 10p. Dateline will replace Grimm on Fridays at 9p.
Hopefully Grimm will do well in its new timeslot, but I will miss it on Friday nights.
If you mixed The Following with Elementary and had one of the best eyes behind the camera to make it all look stunning, then you would have NBC’s Hannibal that debuts tonight at 10p.
Special Agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is an FBI Criminal Profiler and he has a way of seeing murders like no one else. And you will see what he sees.
As he looks into one of his cases something happens and he will need a psychiatrist to talk about things. That doctor is a man goes by the name Hannibal Lecture (Mads Mikkelsen).
Lecture will help him with cases, and Graham has no idea that someday he will be putting him away for being a serial murderer. But before that happens we get to watch their relationship grow over the next 13 weeks and hopefully even longer. It is interesting story that you will enjoy watching it unfold every Thursday at 10p.
Tonight on NBC at 9p is the one hour season finale of The New Normal and it has plenty of laughs and happy tears.
The first half hour starts out with Brian (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) planning their wedding and the two men have problems deciding on everything. Not only do they have problems agreeing on things for their big day, they have yet to pick out a name for their son that is due any day now. But by the end of the episode they will have the perfect name for him, but I can’t tell you what it is because what fun is that.
Then for the second half hour it is time for David and Brian’s wedding, but they are going to have a wedding crasher. That’s because Goldie’s (Georgia King) water breaks during the ceremony. Baby ICan’tTellYouHisName ruins his dads’ wedding, but he gives us a sweet birthing scene. We have waited all season for his arrival and it doesn’t disappoint. Neither does the season finale. So tune in for the last episode for the season of the best new family show we got this television year.
I really hope that NBC picks this show up for a second season because I really fell in love with this darling show.
Tonight at 9:30p on NBC’s The New Normal former Eagle Scout David (Justin Bartha) decides to lead a troop of Boy Scouts, but how will they react when they find out he is gay. At first he keeps it a secret from everyone, but then Bryan (Andrew Rannells) convinces him to come out to his troop. What happens next will surprise you and make you question how in the year 2013 the Boy Scouts can still discriminate against anyone for anything.
This is an important message that needs to get out there, and TNN does a good and fair job for making their point why this rule needs to be overturned. So tune in for another great episode of this sitcom that has turned out to be a wonderful family show that everyone can enjoy and should watch.
It is not news that NBC is having a sh!tty year and they are making things even worse by moving things around and not for the better. Shows are ending early and others are being moved around, so you won’t know when they are on.
Here are the changes:
READY FOR LOVE (Who wants to watch this?)
Will now air Tuesdays, beginning April 9 (9-11 p.m. ET) following “The Voice.”
Beginning April 14 (9-11 p.m ET) will be expanded to two hours through the end of May.
THE VOICE (I like that this cut Celebrity Apprentice down to an hour because two hours is too much)
Will air encore episodes on Sunday, March 31 and Sunday, April 7 (7-10 p.m. ET), leading into original episodes of “The Celebrity Apprentice” (10-11 p.m. ET)
GO ON (Looks like they are giving up on doing comedies on any other day but Thursday)
Moves to Thursdays on April 4 and April 11, which will be the season’s final episode. Both episodes will air at 9:30-10 p.m. ET following “The Office.”
THE NEW NORMAL (NBC did not do enough to publicize this truly great family sitcom)
One-hour season finale on Tuesday, April 2 (9-10 p.m. ET) following “The Voice.”
SMASH (At least they are letting this show air, but man they are setting it up to fail.)
Moves to Saturdays at 9 p.m. beginning April 6 and will air its entire season of 17 episodes.
WHITNEY (Why is this still airing?)
Will have a one-hour season finale on Wednesday, March 27 (8-9 p.m. ET)
I don’t know how much NBC can take under Robert Greenblatt? The constant moving of shows and having them randomly debut is what is hurting the network most. You never know when a show is on. If I didn’t have it set to record on my DVR, I never would’ve known when some of my shows are on and which ones are off.
NBC has a lot of hard work ahead of them as they look to next season because what do they really have?
Grimm is finally back on NBC tonight at 9p and the episode is stuff they write books about it. It feels like a whole season wrapped into an hour, it is that good.
Nick (David Giuntoli) finds out that his boss, Renard (Sasha Roiz), is the man that Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) is obsessed about and he doesn’t take it very well. Especially since he also figured out that the Captain knows he is a Grimm and he doesn’t know what Renard is. The two will finally have it out and that definitely changes things for the show.
But their confrontation happens only after Juliette and Renard finally act on their feelings and it is hot! So hot that recently I was on a conference call with Bitsie Tulloch and she told us about the scene that took 8 and a half hours to film, “It took so long because we had to have a stunt coordinator sort of help us out, particularly me.” The Sasha Roiz added, “It was intense. I mean I think it was definitely a shocker for us when we read it because we really didn’t believe it when we read it. We thought it was a bit of a joke. But they went there.” So to see how far they go, you will have just have to tune in. If that doesn’t get you to watch, then I don’t know what will.
Maybe if I tell you that Adalind (Claire Coffee) is out of jail? What trouble will she cause? But on a positive note, Rosalee (Bree Turner) is finally back. Will she finally be able to help Nick, Juliette and Rosalee? You will have tune into find out in an episode that is nonstop amazing from beginning to end.
