NBC unveils fall line-up
NBC is gearing up for a big fall of television. The network gave us a sneak peek of its new upcoming shows.
NBC hopes to recapture some past Thursday night glory this fall. "The Michael J. Fox Show" is one of several family-focused comedies planned for the night.
"It's a family show, and not simply 'aw, shucks' family show. And I think it's relatable," said Fox.
"Will and Grace" alum Sean Hayes also returns to Thursdays. He plays the divorced dad of a teen daughter in "Sean Saves the World," a show that inherits "The Office" time slot.
NBC's extending the family theme by moving "Parenthood" to Thursdays at 10:00 pm.
"It's a night where, as a family, you'll laugh and you'll cry," said Lauren Graham,
NBC's new dramas include "Ironside" with Blair Underwood starring as a paralyzed detective.
"As a man, he's very ornery, very in your face, very politically incorrect," said Underwood.
Another new drama, "The Blacklist," features James Spader as a world renown criminal trying to help the FBI.
"He seems to have fun getting into trouble," said Spader.
While primetime was the focus of today's up front presentation, there was a lot of focus on the new host of "Late Night", Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers.
Advertisers filled Radio City Music Hall today for a preview of NBC's new season. Viewers get to pass judgment come this fall.
