ABC Delays "Cupid," NBC Benches "Who"
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is bumping "Cupid's" premiere back a week while NBC is pushing "Who Do You Think You Are?" until the summer.

"Cupid" will now bow on Tuesday, March 31 at 10:00/9:00c after "Dancing With the Stars." The series, which stars Bobby Cannavale and Sarah Paulson, has also seen its episode order cut again - this time to seven installments.

As for "Who," the Peacock has opted to keep "Chuck" on its Monday schedule through April 27 while "Deal or No Deal" will take over the 8:00/7:00c hour on May 4, May 11 and May 18.

"Deal" had originally been set to return on Wednesday, May 6. Repeats of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" will instead assume the 8:00/7:00c slot on May 6, May 13 and May 20.

A new premiere date for "Who," which has a six-episode commitment, will be announced shortly.

And finally, NBC has also confirmed new episodes of "The Office" will bookend the April 9 launch of the Amy Poehler-led "Parks & Recreations" at 8:00/7:00c and 9:00/8:00c.

Said scheduling means that "The Office" will wrap its 29-episode season on May 14 with just one installment, instead of back-to-back episodes as previously announced. To fill in the gap, "30 Rock" will move its season finale to May 14 from May 7.
