/// NBC Breaks a Lot of Eggs to Make its 2013-14 Omelet

May 12, 2013  |  Media Week

Since ER flatlined in 2009, NBC’s Thursday night lineup has been the Drunk Uncle of prime time television. But in a radical move to reclaim its movie-night mojo, the Peacock is planning a major overhaul of the three-hour block. Beginning this fall, the criminally underwatched Parks and Recreation will lead off NBC’s Thursday night roster, leading into three new sitcoms and the well-received drama, Parenthood. At 8:30 p.m., the Sony Pictures Television sitcom Welcome to the Family takes the spot vacated by the canceled Up All Night. Starring Mike O'Malley, Mary McCormack, Richardo Chavira and Ella Rae Peck, WTF is a culture-clash comedy about Anglo and Latino families who’ve been thrown together in the wake of an unanticipated pregnancy.
