NBC unveils fall premiere dates for 2014-15 season

By Kyle Johnson,

NBC announced Monday the fall premiere dates for the 2014-15 season, which will begin early in September with the NFL leading things off.

Sept. 4 will officially kick off the peacock network's fall season with a Thursday night Sunday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks, the show will then air in its normal slot that weekend with a matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos. Football Night in America also returns that Sunday.

Veteran mainstay The Biggest Loser will then premiere towards the end of the week on Sept. 11. Then two weeks later the rest of NBC's programming begins to premiere, with The Voice and The Blacklist heading things off on Sept. 22. The following day will see the return of Chicago Fire.

The Wednesday of that week, Sept. 24, will welcome back Law & Order: SVU and Chicago P.D., along with the debut of Debra Messing's The Mysteries of Laura, which makes Wednesday nights a very police-centric day of the week for the network.

NBC has tentatively scheduled the final season of Parenthood for Sept. 25 and then that Friday a two-hour Dateline NBC will air.
On Thursday, Oct. 2, Kate Walsh's comedy series Bad Judge will premiere, along with A to Z.

Nothing new will start airing until Tuesday, Oct. 14, when Marry Me debuts and About a Boy makes its return. Friday, Oct. 24 Grimm returns and Constantine kicks off.

Fast-forward to Monday, Nov. 17, when Katherine Heigl makes her unheralded return to television with State of Affairs, the last fall program to start for NBC.
