NBC has released the schedule of dates for their fall 2009 / 2010 season.

A pair of new dramas lined up for us are Parenthood & Trauma and some returning shows are Heroes, Law & Order: SVU and Law & OrderSouthland survived it’s first season and is returning for a second.

NBC is “proud” to announce that they now have more comedy than any other network.  However, they count The Jay Leno Show as part of that comedy lineup.

The following is the important excerpt of the new programming lineup announcement from NBC:

Yes, there are some shows missing from this list because what I suspect you are looking for is going to premiere after the Olympics or mid-season.  Those would be Chuck, Day One and Mercy.

From what I see, unless Southland takes off, NBC is going to continue to be outside the top-10 in ratings.  Does anyone see anything I’m missing… that is besides completely decimating the 10 o’clock hour with their new comedy show of Jay Leno?  Oh, I just can’t wait. (Sarc)

Are there any shows in particular that you’re excited to see start back up this fall?
