NBC was once home of the best shows on television, but in recent years it has kinda fallen to the wayside. But have no fear peacock loving friends, NBC was at the Television Critics Association panel to talk about their fall season and it sounds fabulous! Even if they are faltering, they still try and turn out some quality show. E! was on hand to bring us the big news from Chuck, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, Southland and Top Chef: Las Vegas.
What can we expect from Chuck? While the show only has 13 scheduled episodes that start airing in March, NBC is considering a longer season with an additional nine episodes so that Chuck will bleed into the summer programming. Nine more episodes with the amazingly adorable Zachary Levi? I’m in!
What can we expect from Heroes: Bryan Fuller may have officially left the show, but apparently that’s not going to affect anything according to NBC. Bryan is busy working on creating new shows, and Heroes is still busy trying to confuse us all.
What can we expect from Friday Night Lights: That one is going to premiere in the summer when there is less television to watch. It’s so upsetting when fantastic shows just don’t get the recognition from fans that they deserve.
What can we expect from Southland: NBC says the show is getting some “creative adjustments” so it focuses more on Regina King and Ben McKenzie as well as the crimes they are working on. More Ben is more better.
What can we expect from Top Chef: Las Vegas: We can expect the best show ever! The competition is getting even hotter with challenges like making an entirely vegetarian dish, sustainable fish and even more awesome stuff now that they are in Vegas. OK, I admit it, I’m most excited about this show. You too? Awesome!
Well, there you have it. Enjoy getting excited over these shows, but then calm back down because you’re going to have to wait at least another month to watch them.
