NBC’s Fall Schedule Lacks Comedy, But Has A Neil Patrick Harris Variety Show

Brace yourself for a whole lot of drama on NBC this fall.

The network announced its fall 2015-2016 lineup Sunday. The new slate includes variety show “Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris,” “Heroes” revival “Heroes Reborn,” crime thriller “Blindspot,” Wesley Snipes’ thriller “The Player,” couples comedy “People Are Talking” and medical drama “Heartbreaker.”

The most surprising feature of the schedule is its drastic lack of comedies. Besides “Undateable,” which was renewed for a third season of all-live episodes, NBC’s only other half-hour comedy is newcomer “People Are Talking.” Both shows will air back-to-back on Friday night, meaning that NBC will have only one hour of comedy programming per week this fall. That’s the lowest number of comedies the network has had since the fall of 1978, according to Vulture, revealing that comedies clearly aren’t a priority for the peacock network.

NBC’s fall schedule is rounded out with renewed shows “The Blacklist,” “Grimm,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Chicago Fire,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Mysteries of Laura,” “Undateable,” “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Hollywood Game Night.”

Check out trailers for four of NBC’s new shows below:

“People Are Talking”

“Blindspot”

“Heartbreaker”

“The Player”

Chuck Todd 2.0? Inside The Subtle Style Makeover Of NBC’s New Sunday Savior

It’s a good day to be Chuck Todd. The NBC stalwart was just named the new host of “Meet the Press.”

For Todd, it’s the promotion of a lifetime. The legendary Tim Russert brought Todd to NBC News in 2007, and Todd now steps into his mentor’s role.

We had many thoughts about, like, serious stuff when we found out that Todd was taking on this new challenge. But we also had many thoughts about Chuck Todd, Fashion Man, because we’ve been noticing some changes to his whole “style thing” over the past few months. If we were conspiracy-minded gossip-hounds, we’d say that Todd has been eyeing the coveted “MTP” chair and has upped his fashion game accordingly. And since we basically ARE conspiracy-minded gossip-hounds, we’ll just leave that there.

First, though, A Look Back. Todd wasn’t always the goateed griller we know today. C-SPAN tweeted this vintage shot from way back in 1997 earlier this week, following reports about Todd’s new role. (That hairless chin! That head of hair! Etc!) HuffPost style guru Rebecca Shapiro opines, “Looks at those spectacles!”

By 2007, he was basically the Todd we recognize today. The glasses were out, and the famed goatee was in. (Shapiro, however, dislikes the suit, which she described as “dull.”)

And there things stayed…until the past few months, that is.

The host has slimmed down lately. The photo on the left was taken in February and the one on the right in June. Looking good Chuck!

Let’s take a closer look at Todd throughout the past few months. Here he was last fall.

Fast forward to May.

Todd looked more trim and tanned this summer, compared to several months ago. Here are screenshots from “The Daily Rundown” in July and August, respectively. Also we’ve noticed some definite goatee-scaping — everything’s more nice and neat. Says Shapiro, “it’s less ‘reporter on the run’ and more ‘anchor fancypants.'”

Not convinced? Well, one thing is for sure. We’re definitely not in 2011 anymore.
