NBC Yanks ‘Saving Hope’ Off Its Schedule, Postpones Next Grimm
Canadian medical drama Saving Hope will have its final two episodes of the season airing only online in the US (I wonder, how much money do they save rights-wise by not airing an episode on TV? NBC seems to do that a lot). The Canadian channel CTV will, however, air those episodes and has renewed the show for a second season.
Also in NBC schedule changes, the September 10th episode of Grimm has been postponed to September 28, delaying the show’s return to Friday nights to a week later than planned (perhaps NBC is concerned about having enough original episodes of the show for the season, considering Grimm’s early start?). Instead, a preview premiere of The New Normal will air in the plum 10pm spot following The Voice premiere, as well as another preview showing of the Go On pilot. Given that The New Normal starts out heartwarming but quickly becomes humorless and agenda-driven, I’m not sure it will be helped by this additional preview.
