NBC Fall 2011 revised-

Monday –
8:00pm – The Biggest Loser
10:00pm – Prime Suspect **

- If you can't win on Monday's, don't place scripted programming from 8-10pm.

Tuesday –
8:00 – Parenthood
9:00 – Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea **
9:30 – Whitney **
10:00 - The Playboy Club **

- Parenthood has had a lead-in for to seasons. Let it sink or swim on its own. As for our two new multi-camera comedies, I'm sure they'll get a portion of the female audience from 8pm, and a portion of viewers turning the channel after Glee depending on if FOX keeps it on Tuesdays at 8.

Wednesday –
8:00 – Smash **
9:00 – Alpha Mom **
9:30 – Community / Parks and Recreation
10:00 – Law & Order: SVU

-Neither COMMUNITY nor PARKS AND RECREATION deserve full season pick-ups with their numbers. I say give them each 16-18, and run them uninterrupted in the same time slot. When one show concludes its run, let the other take the time slot.

Thursday –
8:00 – Reality Programming **
9:00 – The Office
9:30 – 30 Rock
10:00 – NEW DRAMA **

- If CBS keeps THE BIG BANG THEORY at 8pm on Thursdays, NBC should admit defeat and program something cheap in the reality department for the first hour. Comedy night has not “done right” since FRIENDS and FRAISER, so I say give something new a go, while keeping two of your veteran sitcoms in the less comically-competitive hours. If OFFICE can’t succeed without Carrell, and 30 ROCK cannot maintain a decent enough rating behind it, end both next year with proper send offs!

Friday –
8:00 – Who Do You Think You Are? / Betty White’s Off Their Rockers **
9:00 – Chuck (Final Season)
10:00 – Dateline

- Bring CHUCK back for a final season to boost its numbers for syndication, anywhere from 10-22 episodes. Giving it a 10-episode order brings the show to 88 episodes, the appearantly new magical number for syndication, giving it 13 will allow the writers not to rush through a storyline, and 22 will let it hit the 100-episode mark. Start the night with two promising reality shows, including the successful Who Do You Think You Are and the show with a name that guarantees at least a 1.3-1.5 in the demo, Betty White with Off Their Rockers.

Midseason: Harry’s Law, The Voice, The Sing-Off, Celebrity Apprentice (pending), plus any new shows

Likely To Be Canceled or Already Canceled: Chase, The Event, Undercovers, Outsourced, The Paul Reiser Show, Perfect Couples, School Pride, America's Next Great Restaurant, Law & Order: LA, The Cape, Friday Night Lights, Outlaw

^^Why not let Chuck have its 100th episode as the series finale? Also, Law & Order:LA is just a white elephant series that should have had higher ratings than what they do have, so SVU should end soon, maybe after 14 seasons?

FOX Fall 2011 -

Sunday –
8:00pm – The Simpsons
8:30pm – Bob’s Burgers
9:00pm – Family Guy
9:30pm – The Cleveland Show

- Bring American Dad, Allen Gregory, and Napoleon Dynamite on during hiatuses. I for one am tired of only getting a couple of new Family Guy every so often. If you don’t have enough to run through the season, run all the ones you have without reruns, and then place new episodes of another cartoon in its place and so on… Why air repeats when new animations might do just as well if not better? At the end of the season, evaluate the ratings of what you have, and if only The Simpsons and Family Guy are pulling the right numbers in, stop hesitating and cancel the rest. I guarantee putting The Simpsons and Family Guy behind a young-skewing show like Glee would do better than any sitcom you place behind it, including the why-did-they-renew-it Raising Hope. If I were FOX, I wouldn’t have hesitated to cancel all but those two, place them in the 9pm hour, and try Glee on Sundays at 8pm… or, place them with Glee on another night such as Tuesday and use Sunday for other dramas like House and Bones.

Monday –
8:00pm – House
9:00pm – WEEKENDS AT BELLEVUE

Tuesday –
8:00pm – Glee
9:00pm – TERRA NOVA

Wednesday –
8:00-10:00pm – THE X-FACTOR

- If the show is an hour, place another promising drama here. If the show is an hour and a half, place a new multi-camera show here. Invest in something real good, and promote the hell out of it.

Thursday –
8:00pm – THE X-FACTOR
9:00pm – Bones / THE FINDER (Bones Spin-off)

Friday –
8:00pm – Gordon Ramsey's (FILL IN THE BLANK HERE)
9:00pm – Fringe

Midseason: Breaking In, Raising Hope, other new shows

I definitely think The Voice should go Sundays 8-10 after football. Then Smash would air at 10, The Voice can make Smash a hit just like Idol made Glee a hit. NBC is really stupid if they pass on 17th Precinct, it's their best chance of a new hit. And shame on them if they pick up The Playboy Club.

NBC has so few hits. It's going to be hard for any of these new shows to make it no matter how good they are. The only shows I watch regularly on NBC are Chuck and SVU. Since Chuck is probably gone, I'll be down to one hour on that network next year unless some show really breaks out.

ABC Fall 2011 -

Sunday –
7:00pm – America’s Funniest Home Videos
8:00pm – Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
9:00pm – Desperate Housewives
10:00pm – Good Christian Bitches

Monday –
8:00pm – Dancing with the Stars
10:00pm – Charlie’s Angels

Tuesday –
8:00pm – Dancing with the Stars: The Results
9:00pm – Cougar Town
9:30pm – Apartment 23
10:00pm – Body of Proof

Wednesday –
8:00pm – Untitled Tim Allen Project
8:30pm - Smothered
9:00pm – Modern Family
9:30pm – The Middle
10:00pm – Castle

- I hate when you have a mix of multi-camera and single-camera comedies together. Keep them separate. The Middle will surely grab the greatest retention as an established show behind Modern Family because they’re both family sitcoms and they’ll sync well together. People have already made up their minds about Cougar Town, and it really doesn't sync well with Modern Family. Look how The Big Bang Theory blew up behind Two and a Half Men last season! I bet if Modern Family comes back this fall in the 12-13 million range, The Middle will average anywhere from 9-11 million viewers, and a 2.7-2.8 in the demo. A sitcom with a name like Tim Allen in front of it would do fine starting off the night. It would probably average Middle’s numbers or do a little better. I also expect Castle would do fine on a new night, and this would be the best ABC has done with a Wednesday drama at 10pm in quite a few years.


Thursday –
8:00pm – Once Upon a Time
9:00pm – Grey’s Anatomy
10:00pm – Private Practice

Friday –
8:00pm – Wipeout
9:00pm – Celebrity Wife Swap
10:00pm – 20/20

Midseason: Poe, Suburgatory
Canceled – Happy Endings, Mr. Sunshine, Better with You

I just want to say this is a great board. I LOVE to go on here!!! My question might be a dumb one but these upfront schedules that your posting, are these the schedules that the networks have released or what you think the schedules are going to be?

I agree 100% with Castle moving to Thursdays at 8:00, that's where I want it. The other option would be Wednesdays at 10 but that would conflict with Psych for me. I also like Subergatory paired with The Middle. At first I wanted Last Man Standing/Smothered Tuesdays at 8:00. Now I'm thinking 9:00 would be better. I don't want them to get killed like No Ordinary Family was against NCIS/Glee.

But you aren't keeping them separate - the multi-camera Smothered leads into single camera Modern Family. ABC would be better off trying multicamera shows on a new night (most likely Tuesday)
