    We watch Grimm and Blacklist, may try Timeless but sci-fi hasn't exactly done all that well on network TV. At least it's not on Fox.

    So that reported "Blacklist" spinoff didn't get the green light?

    Chicago Justice is missing as well. But nothing midseason was mentioned. I'd look for more details today.

    Maybe 2 for me, Grimm definitely and I am going to give Timeless a try as it sounds interesting. However, how do you define watching? While those 2 are the only ones I record and make an effort to watch, if I am sitting in front of the TV looking for something to watch I can enjoy most of the procedurals (L&O, Chicago XX) and Dateline depending on the subject.

    NBC's upfront is now an NBCUniversal upfront shared with E!, Bravo, USA, Syfy, Telemundo, and whatever. "Chicago Justice" and "Blacklist: Redemption" will be on the schedule at some point. Remember NBC has Sunday to fill after the NFL season.

    Me too. The new show Timeless looks like it might be interesting. I didn't realize I only watch one show on NBC.

    I read the write up on Timeless... I'm not sure on this one. Not many shows can do Sci-Fi right much less Time Travel.

    I don't watch that many shows on D* anymore but I'm kinda surprised at how few of those that I do are on NBC. I have every intention of watching Blacklist on NF. If I were living alone, all I'd really need is a provider such as Sling or Vue that has the Yes network.

    NBC is fast becoming a content free network. Of 22 hours of primetime, 7 are sports, 3 are game shows, 7 are filmed dramas, 3 are reruns, 1 is news and 1 is a "documentary reality" whatever that is. After it loses Thursday football it gains its only hour of sitcoms and two more filmed dramas.

    Wow. If I were an NBC affiliate with a contract coming up and in any way had a signal or a news operation or whatever that made me attractive, I would look for another affiliation ASAP.

    This looks like a pretty decent schedule. I'm glad Chicago Med is moving to Thursdays since I don't have much to watch on that night except How to Get Away with Murder on ABC. I wish they had kept Game of Silence. I'm just now getting into that show and then it's not even finished its season and they cancel it...

    That is an astute observation, but with the state of big 5 network TV, I think a better affiliation might be a pipe dream. And a signal or a news operation becomes less attractive daily.

    It's still 22 hours of content. That is not the problem. The problem is that we are no longer handcuffed to the content they provide in those particular 22 hours. And them going this direction is a reflection of that, from the emphasis on sports to the emphasis on cost-cutting.

    Content will always be king, but it no longer has to share its power with the ability of the gate-keepers to decide what content is available, and when, and through who. So now it will only increase in power as the driver of what we watch.

    What replaces gate-keeping as the second in power is promotion. TV faces the same problem a cereal company faces trying to get eye-level space on a grocery-store shelf. So while content being of higher quality will drive people to watch it, the game is increasing awareness of what content is available. There may come a day when advertising on TV just is so ineffective anymore that it becomes abandoned completely. But promotion will live on well past that date.
