TV This Fall, Part One: NBC

May 14th, 2007

NBC has just announced its new fall season, according to an article in Variety. The most interesting thing about it is that in order to combat falling ratings for repeat programming, two of their series, Heroes and The Office, have been renewed for 30 episodes each instead of the standard twenty-two. In olden days, networks commonly ordered 39 episodes a year, leaving the remaining 13 weeks open for what was known as the “summer replacement series,” often variety shows. Looks like we’re moving back to that. Can the return of Donny & Marie be far behind?
