No shocker here: Days after news broke that Dick Wolf was shaking up the so-so performing Law & Order: Los Angeles, NBC has just announced that the show won't be coming back next month as planned. That's good news for Parenthood and, potentially, David E. Kelley's Harry's Law. The former series had been slated to vacate its 10 p.m. Tuesday time slot in February to make room for LOLA, but NBC brass wisely decided to leave Parenthood right where it is. As for Harry's, it was going to be bumped for Parenthood come early March, but now it may very well continue in its 10 p.m. Monday slot through April. (Last night's premiere actually did okay in the ratings, despite NBC giving the Kathy Bates show very little promotion, at least relative to The Cape.) Finally, the Peacock is also delaying the scheduled March return of Jerry Seinfeld's The Marriage Ref, which had been set to air Sundays at eight this spring. Instead, new reality competition America's Next Great Restaurant will air in that slot starting March 6. We still haven't gotten time slots for previously announced mid-season comedies Love Bites and The Paul Reiser Show, and those series may have to wait until incoming NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt arrives, which should be any day now, given today's news about the Kabletown merger.
