Things that Piss Me Off about NBC

The Leno/Conan and Southland debacles aside, I was terribly, terribly disappointed that the network decided to retire Jack McCoy and friends after this season of Law and Order — only to replace it with an LA-fied (i.e., glossier, shallower, bigger boobs, etc.) version of itself.

It doesn’t really make any kind of sense, especially since the current cast’s chemistry is particularly strong and because NBC doesn’t really have any solid, adult dramas left in its schedule.

Of course, because NBC likes to do things that don’t make any sense, in its upfronts for next season, it revealed its Wednesday night lineup as follows:

WEDNESDAY
8-9 p.m. – “Undercovers” (New)
9-10 p.m. – “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”
10-11 p.m. – “Law & Order: Los Angeles” (New)

@$%#$*! What the what??? They’re airing Law & Order’s spinoff (I refuse to call it “LOLA,” as the network has suggested) on the same freakin’ night that the mothership aired for years before NBC decided to play musical chairs with it.

Ack. Want to build brand loyalty, NBC? Start by making smarter decisions.

End rant.
