NBC, which has little primetime line-up tinkering to do as it's on the top of the TV heap, announced that it would introduce just five new shows this coming fall, The Associated Press reports.
Four nights--Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday--will see their slates remain unchanged. Unlike ABC, Fox and CBS, the peacock network is the only major network to see its number of viewers rise in the past year, prompting the stability.
Good Morning Miami will air on Thursday nights and trace the antics of a Harvard-educated producer trying to turn around a morning TV show--an attempt to find another quality comedy to help ease the sting of losing Friends after next year.
Sunday night will see two new dramas: American Dreams and Boomtown. American Dreams follows two teens who dream of being dancers on American Bandstand. Boomtown is slated to be an ensemble crime piece.
Tuesday nights will see two new comedies: Hidden Hills, which focuses on the "wild, sexy and funny" side of suburbia, and In-Laws, starring Jean Smart.
Notable shows canceled from NBC's primetime schedule include Weakest Link and Leap of Faith. While midseason replacement Watching Ellie currently isn't on the schedule, NBC is reserving it for a possible midseason run.
