(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)


MONDAY (3/1)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Sarah resolves to keep her relationship with Shaw (Brandon Routh) purely professional.” It’s hard not knowing why all the girls call him a “Superman” around the water cooler.
  • The Buried Life (MTV, 10pm):  “The crew hits both coasts while attempting to land an appearance on late-night TV.” I hear Carson Daly is always looking to fill a few guest seats.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10pm):  “A mother of 12 who sleeps in a homeless shelter because conditions at home are bad is profiled.” Note to : Hoarding children can make you homeless.

NBC Lays Out Post-Leno Schedule

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Reality, NBC,

Law & Order: SVUAlthough it’s still unclear exactly when Conan O’Brien will finally depart The Tonight Show (it’s believed his last day will be January 22), we do know what will air in place of Jay Leno’s soon-to-be-old time slot.

As NBC Universal TV chairman Jeff Gaspin stated earlier, the network will not be introducing five new dramas to that time period. Instead, the network has basically reshuffled programs already placed on their midseason schedule.

Starting Monday, March 1, these are the shows that will air at 10:00: (a move from Friday time slot), Parenthood, Law & Order: SVU (originals will move to later time slot), The Marriage Ref and Dateline NBC.
