NBC will replace some of its current programming chaos with lots of Law & Order.
The network's post-Leno-at-10 plan, released Thursday, includes a mix of scripted and unscripted programs filling up the prime-time slot. Law & Order will move from Fridays to Mondays beginning March 1 with a two-hour new episode before settling into the 10 p.m. spot the following week. Chuck will maintain the 8 p.m. hour, while the high-octane Trauma will return on March 8 at 9 p.m.
