NBC has also revealed its fall 2019-20 schedule without many changes from last year. “We came into this season from the vantage point of extreme stability, but without any complacency,” George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy of NBC Entertainment are quoted as saying in a The Wrap report. “Our 52-week schedule takes into account the seismic shift in viewing habits, balancing short-term wins with long-term potential. Comedy is at the heart of the NBC brand, and we’ve picked up four new comedies that we think viewers will love for generations to come. Our new dramas will compel audiences to tune in week after week to our network while also delivering binge-worthy storylines, and our unparalleled alternative programs continue to delight audiences of all ages, providing enviable launch pads for many of our new shows.”
