NBC Modifies Thursday Night Comedy Block (1/20/11)

Also, 30 Rock has been renewed for a sixth season.

Starting January 20th, 2011 -

THURSDAYS (all beginning January 20)

8-8:30 p.m. – “Community”

8:30-9 p.m. – “PERFECT COUPLES”

9-9:30 p.m. – “The Office”

9:30-10 p.m. – “Parks and Recreation”

10-10:30 p.m. – “30 Rock”

10:30-11 p.m. – “Outsourced”
Full Story: http://www.deadline.com/2010/11/nbc-...ck/#more-84181

Smart that they're dropping the 10 - 11pm "Drama" but yeah, I'll be tuning in and out a lot (Community and 30 Rock being the only two I normally watch).

Awesome news, thanks for posting. Glad we finally have a solid date for the return of Parks And Recreation. Nice to see someone has wised up over at NBC and decided to air it after The Office. It should definitely benefit from that time slot.

That's a lot of half-hour comedies back-to-back. Glad we got a premiere date for Parks and Rec. Don't know anything about Perfect Couples (assume it's a comedy).

Half-hour comedies at 10PM. Hmmm. Interesting.

Seems like a death sentence for Outsourced.

There was no 10-11pm drama. The Apprentice has that timeslot right now.

I know most people in this forum only really care about the Thursday comedy block, but there are alot of other moves mentioned in that story.

Parenthood is moving to Monday's at 10pm
Law and Order Los Angeles is moving to Tuesday's at 10pm
Chase is moving to Wednesday's at 9pm
SVU is moving to Wednesday's at 10pm

The Cape premieres Sunday January 9th (2 hours) and will air Monday's at 9pm while The Event is on hiatus
Harry's Law (David E. Kelly's new show) premieres January 17th
The Event returns from midseason hiatus on February 28th
Celebrity Apprentice premieres March 6th

Friends with Benefits, Love Bites and The Paul Reiser Show are all MIA.

Isn't it that one with the hack Olivia Munn?

I really hope this is the end for Outsourced but excited for 30 Rock already being renewed for season 6!

Considering they were averaging 4-5 million in that hour with Apprentice, putting comedies with a million more viewers is an improvement.

Of course, NBC is the only major network that seems perfectly happy with a three hour block with a range of 4.5-7.5 million viewers.

I meant "Drama" being non-comedy, but yeah you're right it's Reality TV. Chase is looking dead, I imagine Friends with Benefits and Love Bites will be filling in for it before the end of the season with a summer burn off for the remaining episodes. Quite frankly, that fits Minute to Win It better than Chase anyhow.

30 Rock getting picked up

I'll check out Perfect Couples and I got into Parks and Rec towards the end of last season, so I'll be watching everything but Outsourced.

Forgot to mention that Marriage Ref will return March 6th. I know everyone here can't wait for for that one. Marriage Ref and Celebrity Apprentice are a match made in heaven.

I assume your not a fan of Mr. Reiser. The promos have been online for months. It's a Curb your Enthusiasm type show and guess what? He's playing himself.

Yeah, can't stand the guy. Love Curb and love that format, but no thanks.

Crap. Chances of it being renewed for a 3rd season will likely diminish.

I have to agree. He was perfect for Aliens because he was supposed to be hated, but in anything else, ecch.

Given the opinion of Olivia Munn in this forum, the Perfect Couples threads should be fun
