"Law & Order" Is Key in Post-Leno Schedule

As expected, NBC will replace "The Jay Leno Show" at 10 p.m. weekdays in March with a combination of "Law & Order" series, "Dateline" and two new shows.

The original "Law & Order" will air at 10 p.m. Monday and "SVU" will air at 10 p.m. Wednesday. Both series were very popular in Buffalo in 10 p.m. slots. "Dateline" will air from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays.

"Parenthood,"  an hour-drama inspired by the movie hit, will run at 10 p.m. Tuesday. If the show sounds familiar, it is because a previous series inspired by the movie failed.

NBC is giving Jerry Seinfeld's comedy-reality series, "The Marriage Ref," the 10 p.m. Thursday slot where some of the network's critically-acclaimed dramas have been carried in the past.

NBC also announced that "Trauma" will return at 9 p.m. Monday, effective March 8. "Friday Night Lights" will return at 8 p.m. April 30 with episodes that have previously been carried by DirecTV. Until then, NBC plans to carry a reality series at 8 p.m. Friday -- "Who do You Think You Are?" -- from former "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow. A new game show, "Minute to Win It," will premiere at 8 p.m. Sunday March 14 before "The Celebrity Apprentice."
