Last week there were a lot of cancellations, pick-ups and renewals tossed around at NBC including the demise of “Heroes” and what could have been the record breaking Law & Order.” After delivering such harsh blows to fans egos they unveiled their complete 2010 fall schedule that’s filled with oldies and plenty of newbies. Check it out…

  • 8:30-9 p.m. “30 Rock
  • 9-9:30 p.m. “The Office

  • 9-11 p.m. “The Celebrity Apprentice”

Side Notes: You may have noticed that several shows are missing from this roster including “Parks & Recreation” and the “The Rockford Files” remake. According to NBC/Universal TV Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin, the Amy Poehler comedy will return midseason on Thursday nights possibly in a 9:30 time slot. “We’ve learned from cable that you can wait as long as a year, create more anticipation and not lose any momentum.” As for “Rockford”, they “will go back to the drawing board for a possible debut later this year or in fall 2011.” We wonder if all the fan hate the show received early on had anything to do with that decision?

NBC still has several shows up their sleeve that they plan on debuting later in the season including “The Cape“, “Friends With Benefits“, “Perfect Couples,” “Harry’s Law” and “The Paul Reiser Show” (ugh, why?), along with “The Apprentice”, “The Marriage Ref” and the new series “America’s Next Great Restaurant” starring celebrity chef/restaurateur Bobby Flay.

Observations: Placing “Law & Order: SVU” and “Law & Order: Los Angeles” back to back is a ballsy move. Is it just us or are they really trying to steal that “NCIS” – “NCIS: Los Angeles” formula?

What do you think of NBC’s new fall slate? What new shows are you interested in watching?
