NBC has followed closely behind CBS in announcing when its slate of new shows will be returning to the air. Although they have released dates the shows will be returning we do not yet know for sure how many episodes of each show will air.

Here is the line-up (listed by show, anticipated return date):

My Name Is Earl,” April 3

30 Rock,” April 10

The Office,” April 10

Scrubs,” April 10

ER,” April 10

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,� April 15

Law & Order,” April 23

Medium” began a run of new episodes last month.

NBC also made an official announcement that “Chuck” and “Life” have been picked up for next season. Neither show will air new episodes this season, however. “Heroes” has also been picked up for next season and is being delayed until the fall as well.

Notably absent from the announcement was any mention of “Bionic Woman� and “Journeyman.� It is widely believed that both shows have been effectively canceled by the network.
