NBC Unveil Their Fall 2011-2012 Schedule

Following a plethora of cancellations and renewals in the last few days, NBC is the first network to announce their schedule for the 2011-2012 season.  Big changes include the moving of Chuck from Mondays 8/7c to Fridays 8/7c and 30 Rock will run its next season without a break but not until midway through the season.

Commenting on some of these changes, in particular the decision to make this season the last for Chuck, new NBC President Bob Greenblatt has said, “It seemed to be the way to end it appropriately for the fans who love it, and not get into a situation where it might end or might not end and then it ends and we haven’t concluded the storyline. It gives [producers] a chance to plan for it. I think that’s the best way to do it.” When also also asked if the show would run for more than the given thirteen episodes he responded, “I don’t think so. Unless suddenly we have 10 million viewers watching it on Friday night, then it would.”

So now that the dust has settled, NBC’s schedule will look like this fall (Please note new shows are CAPS):

8/7c The Sing-Off
