NBC Holds The Voice, 30 Rock for Midseason, Bumps Up The Sing-Off to Fall
The Sing Off
NBC's fall lineup will bump The Sing-Off up to the fall from its previous December berth and will hold The Voice and 30 Rock for midseason.
Going into its third season, The Sing-Off will be paired with the new drama The Playboy Club, which will air Mondays at 10/9c. The second of NBC's three new dramas, Prime Suspect, will premiere Thursdays at 10/9c, following NBC's two-hour comedy block. Whitney, from comedian Whitney Cummings, will take over the valuable post-Office time slot at 9:30/8:30c, bumping Parks and Recreation to 8:30/7:30c.
