NBC did their upfront presentation today and there were very few surprises after all the pickup/cancellation news that’s been leaked this week. I do have to say though, the new season looks very promising from my end. The peacock network is working overtime to fill all those 10pm spots they gave away last season and I like the effect of more scripted drama in the lineup. There are a few too many shows I was excited for bumped to midseason (Perfect Couples, The Cape) but I couldn’t be more excited for Love Bites (Yay Jordana Spiro and Becki Newton!).


Here’s the schedule (with helpful links to articles about the new series):
