NBC Announces Fall Schedule
The Event, Love Bites
NBC's fall lineup pairs Chuck with two action dramas, introduces a Law & Order block and adds two shows to its Thursday-night comedies. It also pushes Parks and Recreation, superhero drama The Cape and other green-lit series to midseason.
Fall TV Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren't?
The Event, a global-conspiracy-theory drama, and Chase, which follows U.S. marshals who track fugitives, will air after Chuck on Monday nights.
The spin-off Law & Order: Los Angeles will wrap up a Wednesday night that also includes the J.J. Abrams' drama Undercovers and Law & Order: SVU.
Thursdays keep Community, 30 Rock and The Office together, but adds Outsourced, the network's new sitcom about a call center in India. Becki Newton's romantic-comedy anthology Love Bites will follow at 10/9c.

Tuesdays will feature two hours of Biggest Loser, followed by Parenthood.
The Jimmy Smits drama Outlaw, about a Supreme Court justice who resigns from the bench to open his own firm, will get a shot on Friday nights, where it's paired with a new reality show called School Pride, a family-oriented hour about education, which will share the timeslot with a second run of Who Do You Think You Are, and Dateline.
Several other green-lit series, including Perfect Couples, Harry's Law and Friends With Benefits, have also been shuffled to midseason.
If you're depressed about your favorite NBC show having been canceled, there is some good news: Angela Bromstad, president of NBC Entertainment, announced that she was still in talks with the producers of Heroes and Law & Order to possibly wrap up those series with special-event movies that would air some time over the next year.
