NBC skeds drama bow after ’30 Rock’ finale

'Do No Harm' moves into the Thursday 10 p.m. slot on Jan. 31

The end of “30 Rock” will also mark the beginning of “Do No Harm,” as NBC plans to bow the new drama on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 10 p.m. following the hourlong series finale of “30 Rock.”

“January 31 will be a special night as one classic series will mark its finale with a great hour-long sendoff episode while a promising new drama will make its debut on Thursdays,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Greenblatt. ” ’30 Rock’ is acclaimed as a legendary comedy and we will see a truly memorable and fitting last episode. In ‘Do No Harm,’ viewers will have a unique new dramatic storyline with an exciting new star in Steven Pasquale that takes them into dark and uncharted territory.”

“Do No Harm” stars Pasquale as a neurosurgeon who battles a Jekyll and Hyde-like personality disorder. The Universal TV drama is exec produced by David Schulner, Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan.

“Do No Harm” is the first scripted skein to air in the Thursday 10 p.m. slot on NBC this season. Peacock will move the newsmag “Rock Center with Brian Williams” out of that berth to 10 p.m. Fridays beginning Feb 8. “Rock Center” will follow “Dateline NBC” until drama “Grimm” returns to the 9 p.m. slot on March 8.
