NBC's New Fall line up - from their website http://nbcumv.com/


NBC PRIMETIME SCHEDULE FOR FALL 2007-08

*New programs in CAPS

MONDAY
8-9 p.m. "Deal or No Deal"
9-10 p.m. "Heroes"
10-11 p.m. "JOURNEYMAN"-
A newspaper reporter time travels to alter the past and fix things. Here's the pitch "It's Quantum Leap meets Early Edition." NBC must've figured the people who are watching Heroes will want another sci-fi type show.

TUESDAY
8-9 p.m. "The Biggest Loser"
9-10 p.m. "CHUCK" -
a geeky super spy. The Pitch, "in real life he's a nerd, but he has a secret identity as a spy. You still don't get it? Here, read this Superman comic."
10-11 p.m. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"

WEDNESDAY
8-9 p.m. "Deal or No Deal"
9-10 p.m. "BIONIC WOMAN"
10-11 p.m. "LIFE"
- A cop was wrongly accused of a crime. Now he's out of jail and back on the force. First let's hope they don't do the cheesy TV thing and have his last name, "Life."

Scene from the pilot.

Cop 1: " Frig that. I ain't going into that shoot out with him!"
Officer Chad Life: "I didn't kill that kid. I was cleared of all charges. Don't you watch the News?"
Cop 1: "My bad. Let's go in."

What if there was a twist? Like he really did do it? Or the cop who did in on the force and trying to get Officer Chad Life killed?



THURSDAY
8-8:30 p.m. "My Name Is Earl"
8:30-9 p.m. "30 Rock"
9-9:30 p.m. "The Office"
9:30-10 p.m. "Scrubs"
10-11 p.m. "er"


They ordered 18 Scrubs and 30 hours of the Office with 5 of them 1 hours episodes. So it's cheaper/more profitable to producer a one hour Office than a half hour Scrubs.

So five times next season the Office will be an hour, not just feel like one.

Let's figure out how many episodes will be 30 minutes... 1/2x + 5(1) = 30
Finally a use for algebra!

FRIDAY
8-9 p.m. "1 vs 100"/"THE SINGING BEE"
9-10 p.m. "Las Vegas"
10-11 p.m. "Friday Night Lights"


This makes sense. Put the show with "Friday " in the title on Friday.

SATURDAY
8-9 p.m. "Dateline NBC"
9-11 p.m. Drama Series Encores

SUNDAY (Fall 2007)
7-8 p.m. "Football Night in America"
8-11 p.m. "NBC Sunday Night Football"

SUNDAY (January 2008)
7-8 p.m. "Dateline NBC"
8-9 p.m. "Law and Order"
9-10 p.m. "Medium"
10-11 p.m. "LIPSTICK JUNGLE"


Why is Law and Order at 8 PM on a Sunday, traditionally family TV night? Isn't the show about murder? In an effort to attract more family viewing they're adding The yellow shirt guy who left the Wiggles and Sonic the Hedgehog to the cast.
