NBC Sets 2011 Fall Primetime Schedule

NBC Sets 2011 Fall Primetime Schedule

If you're looking for 30 Rock on the NBC primetime schedule for the fall, some bad news: you won't find it. The Tina Fey-led comedy has been bumped to midseason to account for Fey's, well, bump. Her pregnancy was part of the reason the series won't debut until 2012, but so too was the fact that NBC has a boatload of comedies on the schedule.

Replacing 30 Rock at 9:30 p.m. on Thursdays will be Whitney, a laugh-track heavy comedy from comedienne Whitney Cummings. NBC is also branching out to a second comedy night: Wednesdays. Starting at 8, the network will air two new comedies: Up All Night with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett, and Free Agents with Hank Azaria.

On the dramatic front, look for Prime Suspect on Thursdays at 10 p.m., Grimm on Fridays at 9 p.m. (don't get too attached), and series Awake and Smash in midseason.

Check out the full NBC fall schedule below.
