NBC Fall Schedule 2010
NBC's new schedule for the fall was released today with a lot of fanfare, but little fare, at least not any that will make a huge difference in anyone's viewing habits.
Notable to me are two entries for Thursdays.
The first is a sitcom called "Outsourced" about a company that sent most of its jobs to India.
Second is a romantic comedy in the old hour-long format (remember, they have to replace five nights of the Jay Leno debacle) called "Love Bites." It stars Jordana Spiro, late of "My Boys," who carries that great TBS show admirably (it returns in July).
The rest is unexciting - a couple of action shows on Monday nights, "The Event" and "Chase," and two hours of "The Biggest Loser" on Tuesdays, followed by "Parentwood.
Wednesdays will have a new program called "Undercovers," (a take on "Mr. & Mrs. Smith), followed by two "Law & Order" installments, SVU and the new Los Angeles iteration.
Friday nights will be "Dateline" and the new Jimmy Smits show, "Outlaw."
On Saturdays, NBC will repeat "Undercovers" and "SVU." Sunday night is all football.
Stay tuned for the rest of the networks' announcements.
