NBC fall premiere dates: ‘Community,’ ‘The Voice,’ ‘Grimm,’ and more

The full schedule is here!

Want to know when some of your favorite NBC shows are coming back on the air? Luckily, we have that information for you right here! The network officially announced their dates on Thursday, and you will notice right away that they are scaled over the course of three months.

In case you are wondering why there are some episodes airing in August, it’s simple — the network wants to capitalize on their Olympics coverage and use it as a way to lead in to some of their new programming. On another note, “Community” is not back until October. Boo.

With the way in which “Community” is placed, we are already worried about it getting the “Chuck” treatment if the ratings aren’t good — with the show continuing to air new episodes on Friday nights throughout the holiday season until the show is done.  We also don’t understand to premiere “30 Rock” later on the in the fall, even though it is supposed to be the anchor of your Thursday-night schedule.

What do you think of this lineup?
