Yes, I know January seems like forever away… but with Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukka & New Years all coming over the next 45 days, time is going to fly by faster than you know.  That being said, it’s important that you do a little pre-planning for the post-season… especially when it comes to your couch time (because let’s face it… after this Holiday season none of are going to have enough money to even buy the “nice” toilet paper).  So sit back good friends and snort up a yummy line of today’s NBC Network edition of Hollywood Crack!

NBC: is learning a lot of lessons these days.  What shows don’t work… what shows really don’t work… and what shows kinda work, but arent’ breakout hits.  I personally find this a little sad because the Peacock crew used to have the best of the best of TV all around!!!  Anyway… they are taking their lumps and making changes to try to improve their little corner of the network world.  Beginning Jan. 17th they will unveil an entirely new line-up of programming, tied up with some of the great stuff we already love (30 Rock, Community, Parenthood, etc.).  Here is their full day-by-day line-up… check it to see if you’re fav is still around:
