NBC appears to be having a hard time locking down its prime-time schedule for fall. Deadline.com reports that the network’s latest tweak again focuses on the variety show “Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris.”
The Tuesday night series “will now spend the bulk of its 8-episode run at 8 p.m.,” Deadline reports.
“The show was originally slated to air entirely in the Tuesday 10 p.m. slot, behind ‘The Voice’ and new drama ‘Heartbreaker,'” Deadline notes. “NBC was forced to change its Tuesday lineup by the pregnancy of ‘Heartbreaker’ star Melissa George, which was not revealed until after the upfronts.”
The Neil Patrick Harris program will still air twice at 10 p.m., leading out from the “America’s Got Talent” finale Sept. 15 and following the Tuesday season premiere of “The Voice” Sept. 22. After that it will settle into its 8 p.m. slot for the rest of its run.
“The Voice” will move from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., but will continue to run two hours long on Sept. 29 and Oct. 6.
