If that isn’t enough, the Peacock network is also the first one to unveil its schedule for the 2014-15 season. As you can see below, ‘The Blacklist’ is moving to a new day and time come midseason, meaning Katherine Heigl’s ‘State of Affairs’ is taking over the James Spader drama’s Monday time slot. Also, Amy Poehler’s ‘Parks and Rec’ has yet to receive a premiere date.

Those shows set for midseason or later include ‘Allegiance,’ ‘Odyssey,’ ‘Mission Control,’ ‘Mr. Robinson,’ ‘One Big Happy,’ ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ ‘Emerald City,’ ‘Aquarius,’ ‘A.D.’ (follow-up to 'The Bible,' which will debut Easter Sunday) and ‘Heroes Reborn.’ Finally, 'Hannibal' Season 3, ‘Hollywood Game Night’ and ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ will also receive new cycles.

If they are putting "The Blacklist" on hiatus for 3 months as well as switching days and timeslot just what the hell are they expecting to happen to it? That is just simply stupid programming. 

Most of the new shows there looks like they will be gone by the holidays. No wonder they have so many "midseason" offerings. This is really sad. Other than the two shows I currently watch, I'll pass until the Fall season dust settles.

I see three shows worth watching two already on air. Hint, Monday and Friday.
