Welcome to Upfront Week 2014! Kicking things off is NBC who has picked up a handful of new shows and canceled even more. On the eve before their official Upfront presentation lets take a look at the planned schedule for the 2014-15 season shall we.
Heavyhitter “The Blacklist” will play musical time slots when it comes back from what looks like a LONG winter hiatus while the always famed Thursday night comedy block if officially dead. “About a Boy” will move to the 9:30 pm Tuesday slot making way for new comedy “Marry Me” at 9:00 pm. New drama “Constantine” will fill the post “Gimm” hour that the now canceled “Dracula” filled last fall while both “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” keep their current 10pm time slots. The fan favorite “Parks and Recreation” final season is still M.I.A. on this schedule.
Look out the follow shows to show-up somewhere mid-season: Allegiance, Odyssey, Mission Control, Mr. Robinson, One Big Happy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Emerald City, Aquarius, A.D. and the 13-episode Heroes Reborn. There will also be new rounds of Hollywood Game Night and Celeb Apprentice filling in somewhere.
