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
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œLaw & Order: Special Victims Unit,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? 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 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œBionic WomanÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œJourneyman.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? It is widely believed that both shows have been effectively canceled by the network.
