NBC has announced their new fall schedule:
Futon Critic NBC Schedule

Futon also has video previews & interviews for all the new shows. BTW, is it me, or is Matthew Perry's voice sound odd in GO ON, like he's trying to do some sort of accent?

Just watched the promo and might make it a while. Reminds me of the show Noah Wyle is in Falling Skys.

Wow, Revolution brought in some heavy hitters on the Producers side. Has a little bit of Jericho to it, I'll definitely take a look.

They've ordered 13 episodes of "Revolution" so "Smash" may come back Monday mid-season which will subject it to "the cumulative effect of nonlinear viewing”.

I'm not sure what NBC is looking for in ratings.

While I'm looking forward to "Revolution" I assume the fact somehow escaped the attention of the good folks Comcast employed to run NBC that "Jericho" and virtually all other recent scifi on broadcast network TV has been a Live+same day 18-49 demo ratings bust, except for "Lost".

But maybe NBC is looking at Kripke's "Supernatural" as a win for The CW, in which case Abrams' "Alcatraz" and "Fringe" on Fox look like solid winners since they outperform most things on The CW.

I think what everyone fails to understand is anyone ages 18-49 with a strong scifi orientation who isn't in complete financial meltdown has a DVR and actually knows how to use it to avoid commercials.:rolleyes:

Just realized that the Munster's reboot isn't on the schedule.
Did a google search and couldn't find any recent news, so not sure if this one is moving forward. As weird as this one sounded, I was sort of intrigued as to how they might redo the show.

As of March, when Eddie Izzard joined the cast, it was slated for a Summer show. I'm guessing Summer 2013.

All I care about is the Thursday night comedies and would have preferred either "30 Rock" or "Up All Night" to follow "Whitney" to Friday rather than "Community".

sad but true
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

Another year of not having to tune into NBC...

Not as bad as Fox's disease, but they really have little sense for what people are going to want.

Great... between "The Voice" and "The X-Factor", my week will be busy... :(

I have a goal of cutting down on my TV viewing this Fall... so while there may be a few of these I'll try out, I think I'll pass on most. Luckily, most of the ones that sound interesting to me appear to be mid-season, so maybe that'll help...

I've pretty much phased out all reality TV, and it seems like that's were the networks keep investing.

And the cool stuff like Fringe, Alcatraz, and anything sci-fi related seems to always get phased out as well.

At least every show that I watch on USA, Syfy, and FX seem to be lasting ... Burn Notice, Haven, Warehouse 13, Suits, Justified, and Covert Affairs.

Te only comedies I watch are Two and Half Men, 30 Rock, and Big Bang Theory, so at least they're good.

Everything else are dramas.

And I continue to be bummed about Alcatraz. Also wanted Unforgettable to continue.

I enjoy the singing competitions too much to quit...

I haven't watched DWTS this year though... I'm trying to clear off DVRs, and I couldn't fit it in. I keep meaning to try SYTYCD... don't know if I will this year or not...

And the cool stuff like Fringe, Alcatraz, and anything sci-fi related seems to always get phased out as well.


I LOVE "Fringe"... so glad FOX is giving it a proper send-off. I never really got too into "Alcatraz" though. Granted, I still haven't watched the last few episodes which supposedly were very good, but I don't know...

At least every show that I watch on USA, Syfy, and FX seem to be lasting ... Burn Notice, Haven, Warehouse 13, Suits, Justified, and Covert Affairs.


Bummed about "Eureka", "Memphis Beat", "The Nine Lives Of Chloe King", but overall, ditto!

Te only comedies I watch are Two and Half Men, 30 Rock, and Big Bang Theory, so at least they're good.


You do realize that "30 Rock" is only back for a 13 episode final season next year, correct?

I watch more comedies than you do, but thankfully, outside of a couple that I only sorta liked, they've all been renewed.

And I continue to be bummed about Alcatraz. Also wanted Unforgettable to continue.


Aside from the cable ones listed above, the only ones I'm bummed about are "Harry's Law", "Unforgettable", and "Terra Nova." I kind of liked "Charlie's Angels" last year... it started off horrible, but it got better before it quit production... Too late though... There was one series I wanted to try, but never got around to it or else I might have been sad about it too...


I intend on cutting down this Fall on my TV viewing, so... oh well! :rolleyes:
