NBC Slots 'Friends With Benefits'


NBC has finally scheduled its half-hour comedy Friends With Benefits.

Benefits, which centers on five friends having trouble finding love (and settling for less), has been slotted for Saturdays from 8-9 p.m. beginning June 25. Back-to-back episodes will air each week.

The show represents the final series left over from the previous regime. Originally, Benefits -- which stars Ryan Hansen and Danneel Ackles -- was supposed to launch some time in midseason.

Love Bites was another NBC series whose launch was delayed. It launched Thursday, June 2 at 10 p.m. -- the time slot the network had originally planned for last year.
