NBC Mid-Season Schedule: 'Smash,' 'Community' and More Premiere Dates
Tuesday, October 30, 2012
NBC has announced its plans for 2013, and things are changing in a big way. Smash is moving to Tuesday nights, The Voice and Revolution will be off until the end of March and Community will return to its original time slot, Thursdays at 8pm.
The new schedule only includes a few of the changes, not the complete line-up. It's likely that Wednesday and Fridays will remain unchanged.

The Biggest Loser, featuring the return of trainer Jillian Michaels, will get a two-night premiere starting Sunday, January 6 at 9pm before settling into its regular time slot, Mondays at 8pm. It's followed by the new Meagan Good, Revenge-esque drama series Deception (formerly called Infamous and Notorious).
