NBC announced its fall schedule today and is heavy with new dramas. I think this lineup looks reasonably promising; they needed to clear out a lot of old shows from the schedule to make room for a lot of promising ones and it looks like they have done that. One of the more promising ones is Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, an Aaron Sorkin venture featuring Matthew Perry in the cast. Hopefully, it won't end up being another Joey.
The lineup information comes straight from the press release at The Futon Critic (new series in caps):
"Deal or No Deal", "HEROES", "Medium"
"FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS", "KIDNAPPED", "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"
"The Biggest Loser", "20 GOOD YEARS", "30 ROCK", "Law & Order"
"My Name Is Earl", "The Office", "STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP", "ER"/("THE BLACK DONNELLYS" in January 2007)
"Deal or No Deal", "Las Vegas", "Law & Order: Criminal Intent"
"Dateline Saturday" , Drama Series Encores
"FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA", "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL"
Scrubs and Crossing Jordan will be back later in the season. And for those wondering what happened to The Apprentice, well, don't have a heart attack, it's still on. Barely. See below.
