30 Rock renewed. Three hour comedy block on Thursdays. Parks and Recreation back AFTER The Office (finally!) The Cape instead of The Event for a while. Celebrity Apprentice without Maria and Goldberg but because no one watched non-Celebrity Apprentice. And a bunch of other stuff.
30 Rock at 10 sounds like a major gamble. NBC must be really desperate to get their 10 o'clock audience back.
I was initially very skeptical of Law & Order: Los Angeles. I thought the star power route was a cynical move, but I have to admit that it's worked for me. Alfred Molina and Terrence Howard single-handedly make that show awesome.
A few things happened last week that I think are instructive to understanding television ratings. First, because of the President's break into tv last Monday, ABC aired The Big Bang Theory after Two And A Half Men.
