In an effort to sustain what NBC has remaining this season, the peacock network made a number of midseason adjustments to its primetime fare. Of note, freshman comedy, fronted by Matthew Perry, Go On will shift to Thursdays, struggling sophomore drama Smash to Saturdays and Apprentice expands.
NBC changes plans for its new dating show, Ready for Love. What was supposed to air Sundays with the Donald will now grab the plump post-Voice slot – Tuesdays at 9-11 ET. The Voice will air encore episodes from 7-10 ET on Sundays March 31 and April 7, with The Apprentice following in its planned slot at 10-11 ET. While Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars was supposed to shift permanently to one-hour to make room for Ready for Love, NBC will now expand each episode to two hours beginning April 14 through the end of May, returning the show to it’s current 9-11 ET time slot on Sundays.
Ready for Love‘s new slot on Tuesdays shifts Go On to Thursdays on April 4 and April 11 at 9:30/8:30c, following The Office as it completes its final season. The New Normal will air a one-hour season finale on Tuesday April 2 at 9/8c following The Voice.
As mentioned above, Smash will move to Saturdays at 9/8c, effective April 6 and NBC is committed to airing all 17 episodes produced. While it does not bode well for a third season, we will see what the Bombshell gang has in tact this season. Finally, Whitney will have a one-hour season (like series) finale on Wednesday March 27 at 8/7c.
