NBC Scheduling Changes: Is 'Outlaw' Out? Will 'LOLA' Move to Thursdays?

'Outlaw'It's week three of the new fall TV season, and NBC is on its way to a third straight week of declining ratings. Although it hasn't yet canceled one of its new shows for underperforming, Deadline reports that the network will likely tinker with its schedule -- and soon.

The show in the most imminent danger of cancellation is Friday night's 'Outlaw,' which only earned a 1.0 rating and 4.7 million viewers last week. Since 'School Pride' is set to launch next Friday, the network could air a two-hour 'Dateline' afterwards in 'Outlaw''s place. Since 'The Apprentice' is not performing well either, NBC could possibly move the reality show to Wednesdays at 9PM, put new hit 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' in its Thursday night at 10PM place, then push 'Law & Order: SVU' into the Wednesday night at 10PM digs.

Meanwhile, ABC has finally decided on a replacement for 'My Generation.' The network will air repeats of 'Grey's Anatomy' in the canceled freshman series' time slot until a more permanent plan can be devised. Fox has already started airing 'Lie to Me' in 'Lone Star''s vacated Monday night position, but it has now decided on reruns of 'Fringe' to fill 'Lone Star''s Saturdays at 10PM encore time slot.

According to Deadline, the NBC changes will likely take place by the end of the week.

Well, NBC, that's what you get for killing the original "Law and Order"!

That's actually not a bad idea at all for NBC. Although having LOLA on Thursdays at 10 is just going to make me miss Southland more, I'd say it deserves that spot more than The Apprentice for sure.
