NBC schedule today

It’s officially the start of (actual) upfront week. NBC will release its schedule today at 2pm EST, and there’s considerable speculation into how NBC will structure its week. While there’s no doubt that NBC picked up quality dramas and comedies – but the synergy between the shows is suspect. There’s little coherence between the series: female-skewing Smash, sci-fi Awake, period piece The Playboy Club, dark supernatural procedural GRIMM, and New York cop show Prime Suspect.

Smash will most likely be paired with The Voice, though there’s a huge question if The Voice will be kept for midseason. With low-performing Chuck and Harry’s Law renewed, there’s the possibility of those two moving to Fridays. Male-skewing Awake and GRIMM might pair well together on Mondays, a night where NBC has struggled since the success of the first season of Heroes. This strategy hasn’t worked for NBC in the past, but who knows if NBC will try again with new blood in the night.

We’ll know later today.
