NBC, Network of Desperate Need, Picks Up Yet Another Show

With the announcement that they will pick up The Cape, about a wrongly accused dad who becomes a superhero, NBC has now added an eleventh show and ten hours worth of programming to their fall schedule, which is more than three full nights worth of prime time. They have also canceled Mercy, which means SVU, Chuck, and Parenthood are their only returning fall dramas. Additionally, the Jimmy Smits show Garza will now be known as Outlaw and David E. Kelley's Kindreds as Harry’s Law. And with that, we are officially exhausted by NBC's mind-numbing dedication to not being a total loser next year. [TV by the Numbers]
