NBC 2012 Midseason Schedule

NBC Announces Its Midseason Schedule — Without Community

NBC has announced its midseason schedule, and the network is fitting some new shows, like musical Smash, The Firm, Jessica Simpson's reality show Fashion Star, and Are You There, Chelsea (previously Are You There, God? It's Me, Chelsea). NBC is also shaking up its current shows, like switching the Wednesday/Thursday time slots of Whitney and Up All Night. 30 Rock is finally coming back and kicking off the Thursday night block at 8 p.m., but don't look too hard for Community — it's been taken off the schedule for now (as has struggling series Prime Suspect).


Keep your fingers crossed that Community survives its absence, and see the full schedule when you read more.
