NBC Mid-season Schedule: Smash Gets Premiere Date; Shows Get Shuffled

NBCToday, NBC announced its mid-season schedule, which includes the premiere dates of several mid-season shows, including Smash and The Firm. In addition, several of its shows, including Up All Night and Harry’s Law got shifted in an attempt to boost ratings. 30 Rock has been given a return date in January, but NBC has also made the choice to bench Community. The Voice will be returning in February as the lead-in to Smash. Interestingly, the mid-season drama, Awake, which many critics had praised, has not yet been given a premiere date. Apparently the show has temporarily stopped production so that new scripts can be refined.

Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice will also be returning and the new reality competition show Fashion Star, with host Elle Macpherson, will be premiering in March.
