NBC Fall 2014 Schedule: 'The Blacklist' nabs post-Super Bowl slot, 'Parks and Rec' midseason


NBC is the first broadcast network to unveil its schedule for the 2014-15 TV season, and the biggest news regarding returning shows involves a midseason move (and a post-Super Bowl showcase) for The Blacklist and a TBD premiere plan for Parks and Recreation‘s final (yes, officially final) season.

Also of note: Katherine Heigl’s CIA-themed TV comeback will lay claim to The Blacklist‘s to-be-vacated Monday time slot, Debra Messing’s The Mysteries of Laura will lead off Wednesdays and Casey Wilson’s Marry Me comedy will pit Penny versus Brad as it (likely) faces off against Damon Wayans Jr.’s New Girl.

On tap for midseason or later are the Russian spy thriller Allegiance, the Traffic-like Odyssey, the comedies Mission Control, Mr. Robinson, One Big Happy and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the “event” series Emerald City, Aquarius (starring David Duchovny), A.D. (aka the follow-up to The Bible, premiering Easter Sunday) and the 13-episode Heroes Reborn. You can also expect to see somewhere new cycles of Hollywood Game Night and Celeb Apprentice.
