NBC shuffles the deck in 2009-10

Here’s NBC’s sked. “Trauma” gets the best drama launch pad out of “Heroes.” New comedy “100 Questions” gets a good midseason shot coming out of “Biggest Loser.” And NBC has high hopes for “Community” bolstering its Thursday comedy block.

“Southland,” the best hard-boiled cop drama to come along in YEARS, gets the Friday beat but that’s OK, that could be a very good slot for the show.
