NBC, as is tradition, is the first broadcast-TV network to reveal its schedule for the Fall TV seasonahead of its annual Upfront presentation to the advertising community.
♦ The top-rated freshman series of the 2021-22 season, the pitchwill return to its Tuesdays-at-9 time slot (which This Is Us calls home for a final two weeks), to unspool presumably just the first half of its “supersized” 14-episode sophomore run.
♦ NBC’s buzziest new series, the Quantum Leap follow-up/reboot starring Here and Now‘s Raymond Lee, has landed the network’s choicest real estate, Mondays at 10/9c leading out of The Voice.
♦ The Night Court revival—which stars five-time Emmy winner John Larroquette and Big Bang Theory alum Melissa Rauch, and which was ordered to series wayyyy back in September — won’t debut until midseason.
♦ Young Rock is moving to Fridays for its third season, starting in November, where it will be paired with the new George Lopez sitcom, Lopez vs. lopez.
♦ And it’s very much worth reminding everyone that starting this fall, current NBC series can be streamed next-day on Peacock — not on Hulu.
