NBC Fall Schedule Announced

And NBC is the first out of the gate with it’s Fall 2011 tv schedule!

While they renewed fan-favorite Chuck for a fifth and finale season (and moved it to Friday nights), they also axed alot of shows and have a lot to fill.

So, let’s get right into it.

As you can see below, there are a LOT new shows coming out with returning shows being juggled around. Not only has Chuck been moved to Fridays, but Parks & Recreation was moved to the lead-in for The Office at 8:30, and the new comedy Whitney getting the coveted post-Office slot at 9:30pm. These are all risky moves, but if NBC can grab people’s attention, it could be worth the risk.

Personally, I am most excited for are Free Agents on Wednesdays, Grimm on Fridays and Awake to premiere mid-season.

Take a look at NBC‘s new schedule below the jump, and let us know what you are looking forward to this coming fall!

NBC Television‘s re-imagining of the iconic Wonder Woman character has not had an easy road in its desire to air on network television, and it appears that the troubles haven’t ended yet!

The David E. Kelly produced show, starring Adrianne Palicki as the title character (whose alter ego is Diana Prince) faced an up-hill battle from the moment the script was reviewed by people online and trashed by the comic community.Then, when images of the costume debuted (see the above picture), comic book fans once again raised a little hell, and it appears that the costume has been toned down in recent videos.

But, according to The Daily Blam! the pilot episode of the show now faces an uncertain future.

Tracie Thoms has been cast as a regular, playing Etta the bubbly personal assistant of Diana and Pedro Pascal will play a liaison to the police department who is devoted and loyal to the princess of power. Elizabeth Hurley has signed on to portray the show’s villain opposite Palicki, while Cary Elwes will portray the CEO of the company owned by Diana Prince, Themyscira Industries.

Justin Bruening (Knight Rider) has joined the cast to portray Steve Trevor, a former Army officer and current Justice Department agent who is also the leading man in Diana’s life; while Joseph Gatt (Thor) has taken up to the role of John O’Quinn, a man who works for Veronica Cale as a physical presence against Wonder Woman.

Not only has interest in the show rapidly declined from the fans and NBC in the past few months, but the fact that it may not even make the Fall lineup may spell doom for the series before it even begins.

Are you still interested in NBC‘s Wonder Woman? If so, it may be time to show your support … the show could definitely use it.

Pilot scripts have been ordered by the television networks for the Fall 2011 television schedule and thanks to io9, we can get a good look at them in advance!  Set your Tivos now if you see anything that pops out at ya. Some of these shows are going to be huge losers, but a few of them look to have promise if they can get the right casting and a good enough script.  Those shows are few and far between these days.

Since it seems like every post I write features me bitching about another damned reboot of a series or movie, let’s start with the reboots, shall we?  After the jump, because it’s a LOOONG list.
