NBC jumped ahead of the other networks this week, by releasing its fall 2008-09 lineup early. The network is trying a year-round programming model this time around.
Network executives announced the pickup of Friday Night Lights and a new spinoff of The Office will be part of the winter schedule in 2009. New shows this year, Chuck, Lipstick Jungle, and Life will return, along with a bevy of new shows such as Knight Rider, Crusoe and Kath & Kim. See the end of this post for specific new show descriptions.
Here is the detailed list of shows days and times. Specific dates for most season and series premieres and other schedule changes will be announced at a later date.
