NBC Fall Premiere Dates

As far as new shows goes, Bionic Woman is the only one that I'm really looking forward to. There is some news in TV Guide that Isaiah Washington has signed on for a 5-episode guest appearance on it.

Poor Scrubs (Still my favorite show) gets the latest premiere date. I understand why, because Scrubs 7th & final season will only have 18 episodes. I have a feeling that The Office is too blame because this season they are having 30 episodes with 5 of the episodes being 1 hour.
So far I'll be watching The Biggest Loser, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Las Vegas, & the greatest lineup currently on television- My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, Scrubs & ER.

Good to hear that we won't get another 17 episode season & hopefully the fifth season will be like seasons 1 & 2, or 3. The fourth season was Las Vegas's weakest. It's going to be intresting too see how they are going to bring Tom Selleck onto the show.

Can't wait for Las Vegas. The spoilers look great so far.

Has anyone seen the premiere dates for ABC shows?

Considering that Tom Selleck is probably a better actor in terms of carrying a tv show, it makes sense in doing a full season.

NBC tried to KILL Las Vegas for whatever reason and it just hung in there strong and continued its ratings. Never to be considered amongst the best shows on television, but it is always breezy fun and interesting.

I agree that Tom Selleck is probably better at carrying a TV show than Caan but it's a tough call to say who's the better actor. I think Selleck is going to get Las Vegas bigger ratings being that he has already been in a hit show (& good one), Magnum, P.I. Caan was never in an established show before Las Vegas. It also helps that CBS cancelled Close to Home, which was beating it in the ratings last season. NBC is good at promoting things to death so hopefully they do the same for Vegas.

In terms of who is cooler, Caan or Selleck....they both are!

Actually Season 5 was the only season to start in January, Season 6 was supposed to start in January as well but NBC decided to start airing new episodes, starting on the last week of November.

Only NBC and FOX have announced their premiere dates so far. I think ABC will be at the TCA event next week, and that is when they'll likely announce their dates.

Looks like the first 4 episodes of The Office will be hour-longs. Earl's premiere is the only hour-long.

Hmm. So when does Heroes: Origins debut? Or because it will be in the same slot as Heroes does it just not count?

'Office' Hours Coming Early
NBC frontloads longer episodes at start of season
By Rick Porter

July 17, 2007

Remember all those hour-long "Office" episodes NBC promised for the 2007-08 season? Well, make sure you don't miss the first few weeks.

The network announced Monday that the comedy's season premiere on Thursday, Sept. 27 would be an hour long. Later in the day, though, executive producer Greg Daniels noted that the show would run long for its first four weeks, eating up four of the five extra half-hours NBC trumpeted as a rerun-busting strategy at May's upfronts.

"It was their request," Daniels says of the scheduling, which will pit "The Office" against the likes of "Grey's Anatomy" and "CSI" for a full hour at 9 p.m. ET. The longer episodes at the start of the season will also fill a hole in the schedule, as NBC won't premiere "The Office's" lead-out, "Scrubs," until Oct. 25.

At May's upfronts, NBC touted the extended order for "The Office" as part of a strategy to cut down on the number of repeats throughout the season. As things stand, though, the show will be in original episodes for 25 weeks of the season -- the same as last year.

Spoiler:
The beginning of the season, Daniels says, will sort out the events that occurred in last May's final episodes, including the firing of Jan (Melora Hardin) and Ryan (BJ Novak) taking over her old job.

"We're dealing with Ryan being the boss and trying to shake things up and bringing the company more into the Internet age," Daniels says. "That's the main thing at the beginning. And also Jan living with Michael -- she's moved in."


Daniels also says Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam, is recovering from multiple fractures in her back -- which she suffered after falling at NBC's post-upfront party -- and should be able to work when "The Office" begins filming next month.

"I spoke to her this morning," he says. "She's getting better, walking around, exercising. ... We'll proabably take it a little easy on her in the beginning."
Minor spoilers.

Looking forward to the Biggest Loser again. May watch Bionic Woman. Will depend on who is playing Jamie Somers (sp?) or whatever character it is. I still like Lindsay Wagner.

Well, she's only 23 years old and this is her 1st lead role in an American TV series. The previews I saw look really good. Also, there's a pretty badass fight with her and Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck from BSG) who will also be on this series.
