NBC Releases 2008/2009 TV Schedule

The Peacock network has released its schedule for the Fall 2008 and Winter 2008/Spring 2009 season. There are a lot of familiar faces from returning shows (favorites like Heroes, Chuck, and Life), but also some new ones. Most prominent is the Christian Slater spy series, which has now been given the title of My Own Worst Enemy. Other notable newcomers include something called Kath and Kim, Crusoe, Kings, The Philanthropist, a spin-off of The Office, Merlin, and of course, the new Knight Rider, which did well enough when it premiered as a backdoor pilot earlier this year to elicit a “go” for series from NBC.
