After its initial announcement last month about the shows it would pick up, today NBC revealed its official 2009-2010 schedule and also made several official cancellations.

My Name is Earl and Medium are both gone, though there are possibilities that both shows could be picked up by rival networks.  For My Name is Earl, it's especially difficult since the season ended with a cliffhanger.

More Fall Lineups:
FOX
ABC
NBC
CBS
The CW


The schedule is clearly divided into Fall and Spring schedules, or pre and post Winter Olympics.  Chuck, which recently was renewed for 13 episodes, won't show up until the Spring.  And as promised Jay Leno's primetime talk show will fill the 10pm timeslot every night of the week.

Friday Night Lights, which was renewed for two more seasons on DirecTV, will air sometime in Summer 2010 on NBC.
