NBC is the first network to officially announce its schedule for the 2013-2014 TV season, and it involves a lot of changes. Revolution is moving to Wednesdays, Chicago Fire is moving to Tuesdays and Parenthood is moving to Thursdays.

In addition, three new comedies will debut  on Thursdays, The Biggest Loser will return and trim down to a single hour and Fridays nights will be home to specialty shows about vampires and pirates. New James Spader drama The Blacklist gets the coveted post-Voice slot on Monday nights while another new drama, Ironside, will premiere after Law and Order: SVU.

Shows not yet scheduled include the fifth season of Community, new dramas Chicago PD (the Chicago Fire spin-off) and The Night Shift, plus new comedy Undateable.

NBC has also renewed The Celebrity Apprentice for another season. No decision has been made yet on whether Fashion Star, Betty White's Off Their Rockers and Hannibal will be renewed.

In addition to these big announcements, NBC also revealed that Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers will take over for Jimmy Fallon in the post-Tonight Show slot. The switch will take place in the spring of 2014 following NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics.

All of this flux seems rather good for the network. The Blacklist is a high-profile drama and could definitely be a big hit. Chicago Fire is being given a chance to get built up even more Tuesdays with The Voice as its lead-in, meaning it could be the future big drama for NBC. Revolution could finally give NBC something decent to start off Wednesdays. Parenthood seems like the best possible companion for Thursday night's comedies (moreso than Hannibal, anyway). And using Grimm to launch another supernatural drama is a smart move too.
