This is normally where I break down the new show descriptions and give you my take on each one, but seeing as NBC did not see fit to provide official descriptions, I guess I won’t be doing that.  I will say that you can see that when you actually see The Jay Leno Show on the schedule, you see just how much it has impacted the traditional schedule: Shows are all shifted around, others are canceled (Medium got canceled and snapped up by CBS all in the same breath), it looks like an abstract painting of a schedule as opposed to an actual one.  NBC is making a huge gamble on moving Jay Leno into prime time, and I have already written about how I expect it to do badly.  There is no way they will cancel it, but boy are they going to be scrambling to figure out how to make up for it.  

I have no clue what to make of the fact they have consigned Saturday nights to repeats.  It’s like they said “Why should we bother?”  In short, NBC is currently in fourth place iamongst the major networks, and with this schedule I hope they like that spot.
