Earlier this week, CBS showed us their Fall 2013 TV premiere schedule. Today, NBC has followed suit, laying out the premiere dates for their new and returning series this fall, including the return of The Voice, Grimm and Revolution, as well as new series Dracula, The Michael J. Fox Show, The Blacklist and Sean Saves the World
Missing from the list is Community, which we know has been renewed but didn't make it onto the fall schedule. Considering that it was moved around a couple of times last season (and originally planned for Friday), it might be a smart move on NBC's part not to secure a date for the series' return only to move it. Going the realistic route, we might be wise to anticipate a midseason return to Community and that way, we'll be pleasantly surprised if it turns out NBC's able to get it on the schedule sooner than that.
The return of The Voice also marks the return of the original panel of judges. Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera will return to their chairs, joining fellow original coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for Season 5 this fall. But, rest assured, Shakira and Usher will be back during the midseason installment of the singing competition. It's The Voice that leads off NBC's premiere schedule...

Thursday nights are going to look very different this fall, with Community not on the schedule and The Office gone. Once all of the premieres roll out, it'll be Parks and Recreation, Welcome to the Family, Sean Saves the World and The Michael J. Fox Show airing in that order, followed by Parenthood on its new night and time, probably taking the bullet for any of NBC's new dramas, which might have occupied that unfortunate timeslot. New series tend not to thrive there, but we can hope Parenthood will manage to hold out against its competitors (Elementary and Scandal among them).
We have to wait until late October for Grimm to return and Dracula to premiere, which is a bummer. But a Halloween-season debut for both series seems fitting. Among the new series headed to NBC this fall are The Blacklist, Sean Saves The World, Welcome to the Family and The Michael J. Fox Show.
And slated for midseason are The Family Guide and the TV adaptation of About a Boy
Here's the trailer for The Blacklist:
