Comedy reigns over four nights this fall; new fall dramas are "Revolution" from J.J. Abrams and "Chicago Fire" from Dick Wolf

"The Voice" returns for first time in fall

NBC's mid-season is highlighted by new comedies "Save Me," "1600 Penn" and "Next Caller" and first-year dramas "Do No Harm," "Infamous" and "Hannibal"

NBC announced Sunday an ambitious new primetime lineup for the 2012-13 primetime season that combines one of the top-quality returning lineups on television with a new fall edition of the red-hot musical competition "The Voice" and a crop of six new scripted series in the fall and four at mid-season.

Highlights of the new schedule include an expansion of comedy to Tuesday and Friday nights for a total of five full hours of primetime comedy; the first fall cycle of the hit competition "The Voice"; and compelling new dramas from J.J. Abrams and Dick Wolf on Monday and Wednesday nights, respectively.

The season's new fall comedies are "Go On," "The New Normal," "Animal Practice" and "Guys with Kids." Other mid-season comedies include "Save Me," "1600 Penn" and "Next Caller."

The new fall dramas are "Revolution" and "Chicago Fire," while "Do No Harm," "Infamous" and "Hannibal" also will join the lineup in mid-season.

In addition, new alternative series include "Stars Earn Stripes," "Howie Mandel's White Elephant," "Ready for Love," and "Surprise with Jenny McCarthy."

NBC's returning shows are highlighted by "The Voice," which returns on Mondays (8 to 10 p.m.) and includes an additional weekly hour on Tuesdays (8 p.m.).

Other returning scripted series are "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "The Office," "30 Rock," "Community," "Parenthood," "Parks and Recreation," "Whitney" and "Up All Night." The alternative series returning are "The Celebrity Apprentice," "Fashion Star," "The Biggest Loser" and "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." Also renewed are "Dateline NBC" and "Rock Center with Brian Williams." "Smash" and "Grimm" were given pickups earlier in the season.

The announcements were made by Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment.

"We've taken a few first steps toward a turnaround over this past season and now we're seeing a real opportunity to accelerate that process," Greenblatt said. "We've got a lineup of new shows that will really get people to sit up and take notice. And with the Olympics coming this summer and two nights of 'The Voice' in the fall, we've also got the tools we need to give our shows the kind of launch they deserve."
