NBC has announced its mid-season game plan, and it goes a little something like this: Effective Jan. 2, My Name Is Earl and The Office, as speculated, move from Tuesday to Thursdays-at-9, where they will follow a pairing of Will & Grace and the new sitcom Four Kings (starring Seth Green, Shane McRae, Josh Cooke and Todd Grinnell). Filling the Tuesday void are back-to-back airings of new Scrubs episodes, which will have Fear Factor as its lead-in. Succeeding The Apprentice: Martha Stewart on Wednesdays at 9 is The Biggest Loser: Special Edition, a series of standalone and themed specials. Sandwiching Dateline on Friday are Most Outrageous TV Moments and the new The Book of Daniel, which stars Aidan Quinn as a reverend who sees and chats with Jesus. As for our pal Joey, NBC will bench the Friends spin-off until after its Winter Olympics coverage. Could we be less surprised?
