NBC’s Midseason Schedule Makes No Sense To Me



I often wonder how the once-mighty NBC has fallen on such bad times. Clearly the network is run by a bunch of idiots, as there’s no other way to explain the bone-head decisions that are made on a daily basis.

The one saving grace NBC has is their Thursday-night comedy lineup. Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Whitney. What more could you ask for? How about bringing back 30 Rock at 10pm and Outsourced at 10:30pm?

Unfortunately, NBC cancelled Outsourced.. And now there are even more changes coming!

NBC is moving Up All Night to Thursdays at 9:30pm. Whitney will be moved to Wednesday at 8pm. Community (one of the best shows on TV) gets benched, and 30 Rock comes back in it’s place. There’s so much wrong with that move. Personally, I would have put Up All Night at 8pm and put 30 Rock at 9:30pm.

NBC’s complete midseason schedule can be seen below:

8/7c The Voice
10 pm SMASH

8 pm The Biggest Loser
10 pm Parenthood (until Feb. 28)

8 pm Whitney [new time slot]
9 pm Rock Center with Brian Williams [new time slot]

8 pm 30 Rock [new time slot]
8:30 pm Parks and Recreation
9 pm The Office
9:30 pm Up All Night [new time slot]

8 pm Who Do You Think You Are?
9 pm Grimm
10 pm Dateline NBC

Repeats “Encore programming”

7 pm Dateline
8 pm Harry’s Law [new time slot]
9 pm The Celebrity Apprentice

Looks like I’ll only be watching 3-4 hours worth of shows on NBC.. (While this might sound like a lot to some people, I easily watch 25-30 hours of TV a week)

    So with Chuck and Community circling the drain, it looks like I’ll have exactly 1 show(Office) to watch on NBC. I can’t fault NBC though. They stuck with them, it’s the moronic public that eat up shit like Mike & Molly instead of good shows.

    Grimm is an ok show, but they’ve put it up against Fringe on Fridays. If it weren’t for the internet and DVRs… I wouldn’t know it existed.

    I definitely am not getting hooked on Up All Night…and I’m liking the players too. I will miss Outsourced, of course now that I realize it’s going. It is one of those shows that if nobody ever mentioned it to me, I wouldn’t have noticed it was gone!

    They really only have like three good shows anymore. its kinda sad, you would think they could come up with some worthy stuff to watch.

      NBC lost their way a long time ago. Community and Parks and Recs are awesome, and Whitney’s not actually THAT bad.. But everything else on there sucks.

      I’m still watching The Office, but it’s not nearly as good now that Michael Scott is gone. 🙁

      NBC needs to steal some of the talent from the cable networks.. The League on FX and Workaholics on Comedy Central are two of the funniest shows on TV right now!
