NBC Shifts 'Quarterlife,' Slates 'Amne$ia,' 'My Dad'
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has further detailed its spring schedule, which will see the addition of two Mark Burnett-produced series - "Amne$ia" and "My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad."

In addition, newcomer "quarterlife" is getting a new home. The online-turned-broadcast series will now launch on Tuesday, February 26 at 10:00/9:00c before moving to Sundays at 9:00/8:00c beginning March 2.

To make room for the series, NBC will bump the start of its off-cable runs of "Monk" and "Psych" to Sunday, April 6 at 8:00/7:00c and 9:00/8:00c respectively.

Meanwhile, incoming game show "Amne$ia" will debut on Friday, February 22 at 9:00/8:00c following the season finale of "1 vs. 100." The series will then slide to the 8:00/7:00c hour on Friday, February 29 followed by two-hour editions of "Dateline NBC" at 9:00/8:00c.

On Mondays, look for "Deal or No Deal" to continue in the 9:00/8:00c hour for the foreseeable future, sandwiched between "The Baby Borrowers" and "Medium" starting February 18. Then on March 31, fellow newcomer "My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad" will assume the 8:00/7:00c slot.

And finally on Wednesday, "Deal or No Deal" will expand to two hours starting March 26. The additional hour will fill the void left by "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," which wraps its run on March 19.

An official press release confirming the news is expected to be issued later today or Monday.
