Bringing up the rear (too easy), NBC today joined CBS, ABC, FOX and The CW in announcing its Fall schedule premiere dates.  As with the other networks, the bulk of NBC’s shows will begin the week of Sept. 19-25, with a few exceptions:

Wednesday, Sept 14:  UP ALL NIGHT and FREE AGENTS have special “preview” airings in the 10PM hour, after the season finale of America’s Got Talent.  (Both shows air in their regular 8PM hour the following week.)
Friday, October 21:  Belated debuts for the purportedly final season of CHUCK and the new GRIMM.  (2-hour Dateline episodes will are on Fridays until that date.)
