Default My Ideal NBC 1992 Lineup

I always thought this schedule was weird, not shocking considering the shape NBC were in at the time. I revised the schedule with the idea of maybe my version would've helped soften the blow of losing Cosby, Golden Girls, and etc.

Original lineup

NBC Saturday Night
800pm - Here and Now
830pm - Out All Night
900pm - Empty Nest
930pm - Nurses
1000pm - Sisters

NBC Sunday Night
700pm - Secret Service
800pm - I Witness Video
900pm - NBC Sunday Night at the Movies

NBC Monday Night
800pm - The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
830pm - Blossom
900pm - NBC Monday Night at the Movies

NBC Tuesday Night
800pm - Quantum Leap
900pm - Reasonable Doubts
1000pm - Dateline NBC

NBC Wednesday Night
800pm - Unsolved Mysteries
900pm - Seinfeld
930pm - Mad About You
1000pm - Law & Order

NBC Thursday Night
800pm - A Different World
830pm - Rhythm & Blues
900pm - Cheers
930pm - Wings
1000pm - L.A. Law

NBC Friday Night
800pm - Final Appeal
830pm - What Happened?
900pm - The Round Table
1000pm - I'll Fly Away

My Version

NBC Saturday Night
800pm - The Powers That Be
830pm - Almost Home
900pm - Empty Nest
930pm - Nurses
1000pm - Sisters

NBC Sunday Night
700pm - I Witness Video
800pm - Quantum Leap
900pm - NBC Sunday Night at the Movies

NBC Monday Night
800pm - The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
830pm - Blossom
900pm - NBC Monday Night at the Movies

NBC Tuesday Night
800pm - Wings
830pm - Mad About You
900pm - Reasonable Doubts
1000pm - Dateline NBC

NBC Wednesday Night
800pm - Unsolved Mysteries
900pm - Homicide: Life on the Street
1000pm - Law & Order

NBC Thursday Night
800pm - Here And Now (short lived show starring Malcolm Jamal Warner of Cosby Show, made better sense to have it air on Thursday)
830pm - A Different World
900pm - Cheers
930pm - Seinfeld
1000pm - L.A. Law

NBC Friday Night
800pm - Rythmn & Blues

I wouldn't change much apart from having a NFL postgame show on weeks that NBC has a doubleheader.

You ever read the Masked Scheduler, Preston Beckman? He said that when he joined NBC's scheduling department his first instinct was to slide Seinfeld post-Cheers. He was informed by NBC brass that they had made a time-period commitment to Paramount Television as part of a renewal of Cheers. Paramount's Wings had to air behind Cheers for two and a half seasons so it could get into syndication. As soon as the commitment was done NBC slid Seinfeld right in there.

Why would Paramount ask that Wings air after Cheers, so it could get into syndication?

Yes. Paramount knew the show wouldn't have an audience on its own so they used Cheers as leverage. Carsey-Werner had a similar contractual set-up with Cosby/A Different World.

NBC was able to get-away from time-period commitments for a few years until WB's Veronica's Closet in the late-90s which came from the 'Friends people.'
