NBC Lays Out Fall Schedule

Christian SlaterLast week, ‘s programming chief got a jump start on the competition by revealing his company’s calendar for next year.  In addition to the fall lineup, the programming schedule through Summer 2009 was revealed.

Of all the interesting notes, I actually found it quite refreshing to hear that the network will be working to keep the 8 o’clock time slot a “family hour”.  (In other words, they’ll put the most family friendly things they have - whether they really should be watched by children or not - during that portion of the evening.)  After the kids are put to bed, NBC will then kick things up a notch with an hour of “blockbuster” programming then sixty minutes of adult-themed content.

Schedule Changes for Lost, How I Met Your Mother, House

In the past few days, more scheduling announcements have been made to mess with our heads.  While all the changes have been reflected in our convenient Post-Strike Television Schedule, here are a few of the highlights.

Josh Duhamel, Las Vegas

  • It’s been made official: Come April 24, will move from 9pm to 10pm on Thursdays.  This change will make room for the returns of Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty in their old slots.  (What this means for Eli Stone’s future is unclear.)
  • When returns on March 17th, it will be trading time slots with The Big Bang Theory.  (Mother will air @ 8:30, Bang @ 8:00.)  Meanwhile, the fate of the Neil Patrick Harris comedy beyond this season is still undecided.
  • Monday night will eventually become a new home for Bones and House will begin airing new episodes on that day come April 14; Hugh Laurie and the gang will start anew on April 28 @ 9pm.
  • Certain shows like , Bionic Woman, Big Shots and Life is Wild have not been not granted post-strike episodes because they are not being renewed.  At all.

NBC ‘Green Week’: An Opinion

NBC's 'Green Week' sucks a big oneOk, I’m all for saving the world, cleaning up the air and preventing whatever horrible fate Al Gore has decided awaits us in the coming decades - but this NBC “Green Week” is absolutely awful. In a week that has seen this huge writer strike, it would seem to me that network television needs every spark it can possibly get. What did NBC deliver instead? The guy from Windtalkers (now on Law & Order: SVU) telling me to recycle a pizza box … before he almost gets blown up by the bomb inside.

Oh, but the tree-hugging horror doesn’t stop there. Follow me after the jump to take a look at some of the other cringe-inducing moments from “Green Week.”
