NBC is getting a head start on their fall season by launching many of their shows as early as August. Traditionally, networks start their fall seasons in the third and fourth weeks of September. By starting in August, NBC is hoping to capitalize on increased viewership during the Olympics and getting a fan base ahead of other network shows. After the break, we've got the dates for Grimm and Revolution.
Grimm will return on Monday, August 13th at 10pm and hang out there until September 14th, when it returns to its Friday 9pm timeslot. Revolution - which is expected to be NBC's biggest premiere of the season - will take up the 10pm slot on Monday starting the next week, September 17th.
Hannibal and Mockingbird Lane have yet receive premiere dates, but both are expected to bow in the early part of 2013 for midseason.
