NBC is set to announce a 2010-2011
primetime sked on Monday bursting at the seams with new fare.

Peacock's
fall
sked includes drama blocks on Mondays and Wednesdays and the return of
its
Thursday comedy lineup — with one notable exception: Critic fave "Parks
and Recreation" has been held for midseason.


New J.J. Abrams drama "Undercovers" kicks off Wednesdays at 8
p.m.,
while the net will use "Law & Order: SVU" that night to launch "Law
and
Order: Los Angeles."

As expected — and posted on Variety's On the
Air blog
over the weekend — NBC will launch new comedy "Outsourced" behind "The
Office"
on Thursdays, and lead into "Love Bites" at 10 p.m.


Mondays will
include new
dramas "The Event" and "Chase" along with returnee "Chuck." "The Event"
is expected to get NBC's biggest marketing push of the year.

Tuesday reps the only night of the week without change, as "The Biggest
Loser" continues to air into "Parenthood" at 10 p.m.


Sked is also notable for what it doesn't have: A second night of comedy.
Net nixed those plans for now.


Much of
NBC's new
fare will wait until midseason. including the new
series
“The Cape,” “Friends With Benefits,” “Perfect Couples,” “Harry’s Law"
and “The
Paul Reiser Show" (formerly "Next"), all of which will premiere later in
the season along with a new
version of
“The Apprentice,” “The Marriage Ref” and the new series “America’s Next
Great
Restaurant” — starring celebrity chef/restaurateur Bobby
Flay.

Overall, Peacock has added a
whopping five new comedies,
seven new
dramas and one new reality show to the mix.
