NBC’s new pickups impact ‘Real Housewives,’ ‘Once Upon a Time’

The lineup's getting crowded.

The big news keeps on coming from NBC, otherwise known now as the network that just doesn’t want to wait when it comes to announcing which shows it plans on ordering for the new fall season.

We already knew that the network had ordered the comedy “Go On” starring Matthew Perry as a man trying to move forward with his life — and you can now add the following three to the list:

“The New Normal” – This comedy comes from “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy and writer Ali Adler, and it focuses primarily on a gay couple looking to a surrogate to provide them with a child.

The biggest news in relation to this show is that NeNe Leakes is going to play a major role either as a recurring guest star or series regular. Does this mean her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” days are numbered? Stay tuned…

“Revolution” – In a show that sounds a bit like “Falling Skies” minus the aliens, a group of people try to survive in a world without electricity. David Lyons of “The Cape” (“six seasons and a movie!“) stars, and what may be more interesting to the future of his role on “Once Upon a Time” is that Giancarlo Esposito is still on board. With this, Sidney is either going to have to disappear from Storybrooke, bite the dust, or have some other creative explanation for his absence.

“Save Me” – Starring Anne Heche, the comedy is about a woman who believes she is channeling God after suffering a car accident. The implications for other shows here are not as big — but we are already unsure if Heche is going to be the right person to bring in young viewers.

Do any of these new shows interest you based on concept alone?
