NBC is the final major network to announce its fall premiere dates, and there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Chuck's final season won't premiere until October 21. The good news is that some shows are getting a special early debut ahead of other networks.

Parenthood will start its third season Tuesday, September 13 at 10pm following the final performance show of America's Got Talent, hopefully giving a boost to the underdog series. New comedies Up All Night and Free Agents will get similar treatment the following night after the AGT finale before moving to their regular timeslots at 8pm.

Most of the shows will launch in the big premiere week starting on Monday, September 19 when The Sing-Off goes head-to-head with the premiere of Dancing with the Stars and Ashton Kutcher's Two and a Half Men debut.

Sadly, the lone holdouts from September will be Chuck and the new fairy tale drama Grimm, which won't start until Friday, October 21. Combined with the delayed start of FOX's Bones and this means two of the biggest fan favorites won't be starting in September.
