In addition, several of the network's biggest hits will return, including "The Voice" with new coaches Usher and Shakira; fall hit "Revolution"; "Smash," featuring Jennifer Hudson; and "The Biggest Loser," with some innovative changes to the format and the return of Jillian Michaels.

Further scheduling announcements will be forthcoming.

Following are the highlights of the changes:

Mondays:

The new drama "Deception" - starring Meagan Good ("Think Like a Man"), Victor Garber ("Alias"), Tate Donovan ("Damages") and Katherine LaNasa ("Alfie") in a dark family murder mystery -- debuts on January 7 (10-11 p.m. ET). Preceding "Deception" is the new season of "The Biggest Loser" which returns with a two-night premiere on Sunday, January 6 (9-11 p.m. ET) and Monday, January 7 (8-10 p.m. ET), and will continue on Mondays (8-10 p.m. ET) until the return of "The Voice."

"The Voice" maintains its momentum as it returns March 25 for a fourth season (8-10 p.m. ET) and Tuesday, March 26 (8-9 p.m. ET). It continues its two-night Monday/Tuesday schedule as it did this fall. "Revolution" -- the season's only bona fide new hit series -- will return and follow "The Voice" on March 25 (10-11 p.m. ET) when it concludes its current fall broadcast dates in November.

Tuesdays:

Last year's acclaimed musical drama "Smash" makes its much-anticipated return with a two-hour episode on February 5 (9-11 p.m. ET) -- with Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson -- and will resume on Tuesday, February 12 (10-11 p.m. ET) in its regular day and time. "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" premieres on January 8 with back-to-back episodes (8-8:30 p.m. ET and 8:30-9 p.m. ET) and will continue in that hour each Tuesday.

"The Voice" also will return on Tuesdays on March 26 (8-9 p.m. ET).

Thursdays:

The new comedy "1600 Penn" -- starring Bill Pullman ("Independence Day"), Jenna Elfman ("Dharma and Greg") and Josh Gad (Broadway's "The Book of Mormon") as a typical American family who just happen to live in the White House -- debuts on January 10 (9:30-10 p.m. ET). Jason Winer, Emmy-winning director of "Modern Family" is co-creator and director. The critically hailed comedy "Community" returns on February 7 (8-8:30 p.m. ET). "Parks and Recreation" moves up one hour on the Thursday schedule to 8:30-9 p.m. (ET) on January 17.
