    I think they’re just bumping it during sweeps. After that, 1600 Penn returns.

  • rob60990

    Just pull it and premiere Save Me.

  • BL

    @rob60990 has a great point on this one.

  • S.P.

    Move “New Normal” and “Smash ” thursdays 9:30 and 10:00

    Move “GO ON” to 9:30 tuesdays and Premiere Save me at 9:00(after the voice) not before Hannibal premiere(after two hours of voice) at 10:00 on tuesday

    02/21/2013 (08:30PM – 09:31PM) (Thursday) :

    Am I reading that right, and they’re bumping The Office?

  • SJ

    Wow, Parks is bumping The Office. Cool.

    I wonder, though, why NBC isn’t giving Parks 26-28 episodes this year like they did with The Office in its heyday.

  • SJ

    Honestly, at this point I’m half-expecting Save Me to meet a similar fate as Next Caller…

  • Oliver

    (My guess: they’re testing to see how strong Parks is without The Office as anchor)

  • Oliver

    I’ll be surprised Save Me doesn’t air, if only becaus. NBC needs it to fill gaps in their schedule.

  • Conor

    @Oliver

    I believe it’s saying that next week there will be a double Office and then the week after a double Parks and Rec with the Office at 9.30.

  • SVUnCI

    I don’t think Save Me is anywhere bear ready to air, seeing as how they were on episode 2 (according to Deadline) when they switched showrunners. I think this will be the Summer of comedies (Don’t Trust the B burnoff, Goodwin Games, Friend Me, and Save Me)

  • Oliver

    @SVUnCI
    Why would they still be making episodes of Save Me if they were just going to burn it off during Summer?

    I think they’ll either double-pump it on Wednesdays after Whitney ends, or put it after The Office and double-pump 1600 Penn on Wed.

  • bl

    @oliver yes. They are bumping the office on the 21st because of the hour special on the 14th.

  • DryedMangoez

    Should NBC permanently move SVU to Thursdays at 10 and build a comedy block on Wednesdays?

  • The Comedian

    1600 Penn??? More like 1600 FLOP!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH am i rite folks??? I’ll be here all night!

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Parks will air at 8:30 and then after The Office,at 9:31pm.

  • Ernie

    Actually, Smash would do better when it airs at 10:00 on Thursday.

    Pleas give a chance to Guys with kids !!!

    The New Normal can perform well at 9:300 on Thursday as well.

  • Ernie

    @DryedMangoez

    I totally agree with you!!
    ABC comedy block has been going down..So, NBC should build its comedy line on Wed.

  • Ram510

    Whoa NBC is a mess!

  • Greg

    Deadline says 1600 Penn is returning on February 21. So I guess Parks is being tested as a possible replacement for The Office next season.
