NBC 2010-2011 Schedule and Thoughts

8-9 p.m. Chuck
9-10 p.m. The Event
10-11 p.m. Chase

Chuck is paired with two freshman dramas. There are those out there who complain about NBC not giving Chuck a fair chance, and the show staying in the same timeslot is more proof. Let's be realistic here. It'll take more than a Cheers-like miracle for Chuck to become a hit. It'll be in its fourth season and NBC has given it more than enough promotion in the first few seasons. If it's not a hit now, it'll never be. Still, I'd like to see what would happen if Chuck was given a decent lead-in, but The Event and Chase both don't seem like 8pm shows.

8-10 p.m. The Biggest Loser
10-11 p.m. Parenthood

One of the few pairings that actually works (subjectively when compared to the rest of NBC) will stay intact for the fall.

8-9 p.m. Undercovers
9-10 p.m. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
10-11 p.m. L&O: Los Angeles

Undercovers is J.J. Abrams's child and NBC doesn't want to mess that up. Wednesday is a relatively competition-free night, so sticking it at 8 would be a safe choice. Despite a pretty substantial ratings decline, Law & Order: SVU is staying at 9, where is was hurt the most, and becoming a lead-in for Law & Order: LA. With CSI: NY plummeting against SVU, it's not a terribly bad idea.

8- 8:30 p.m. Community
8:30-9 p.m. 30 Rock
9-9:30 p.m. The Office
9:30-10 p.m. Outsourced
10-11 p.m. Love Bites

Most notable is the absence of Park and Recreations, which has been move to midseason, and the move of 30 Rock from 9:30 to 8:30 to make room for the new comedy Outsourced.

8-9 p.m. Who Do You Think You Are?/School Pride
9-10 p.m. Dateline NBC
10-11 p.m. Outlaw

Outlaw looks like a goner.


7- 8:15 p.m. Football Night in America
8:15-11:30 p.m. NBC Sunday Night Football

SUNDAY (beginning March 2011)
7-8 p.m. Dateline NBC
8-9 p.m. Minute to Win It
9-11 p.m. The Celebrity Apprentice
