NBC matches up drama, reality


NBC is going for another reshuffle of its Wednesday and Sunday schedules, creating an all-drama lineup on Wednesdays and all-unscripted lineup Sundays.

Beginning March 4, "Deal or No Deal," which recently relocated from Thursday to 9 p.m. Wednesday, will be on the move again, this time to the 9-10 p.m. Sunday slot.

The new NBC Sunday night will have the newsmagazine "Dateline NBC" and "Grease: You're the One That I Want" staying put at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., respectively, followed by "Deal" at 9 p.m. and "The Apprentice," which will shift to 10 p.m.

As for NBC's Wednesday night makeover, beginning March 7, critically praised but low-rated football-themed freshman drama "Friday Night Lights" will be followed by the Jill Hennessy-starring "Crossing Jordan" at 9 p.m. and another crime drama with a female lead, "Medium," at 10 p.m.
