NBC Ruffles Scheduling Feathers

NBC is shaking things up again.

After having moderate success with its new Thursday block, more programming changes are afoot. In March, the ‘Cockers will move Law & Order, The Apprentice and Las Vegas to new time slots, among other moves.

The net also announced next-season renewals for My Name Is Earl and The Office, and that they’d likely keep the shows on Thursday night.

Get your scheduling scorecard ready:

NBC officially pulled the plug on The West Wing and Will & Grace.

Crime drama Heist will takes over the Law & Order timeslot, Wednesdays at 10 pm. L&O moves back an hour to 9pm.

Fridays will see the move of Las Vegas to 9pm, while Dick Wolf’s new Conviction will fill the 10pm hole.

Dateline NBC moves to Saturdays at 8 pm.

Howie mandel’s Deal or No Deal, will run for a week beginning February 27th and move to a weekly slot the following week, airing Mondays at 8. At 9, a newly located Apprentice moves in. Fear Factor which switches to Tuesdays at 8.

The network announced no plans for Joey, Thick and Thin or Surface, but did reveal they were planning a summer return of Last Comic Standing.

Got all that?

2 other geekspeak:

  • "Thick and Thin?" I've never even heard of that.

    I like "Surface," but I don't want to see it go on much longer. You can only have so much mounting tension without a payoff (are you listening "Lost?").

  • Monday at 9 is a good spot for Trump. Not sure if that will be good in the fall vs Monday Night Football, though (even if it is on cable).
