NBC 2011-12 schedule: 'Playboy Club,' 'Prime Suspect' kick off fall; '30 Rock' moved to midseason

amber-heard-playboy-alt.jpgFor the 2011-12 television season, NBC is coming out of the gate in the fall with new shows "The Playboy Club" on Mondays, "Up All Night" and "Free Agents" on Wednesdays, "Whitney" and "Prime Suspect" on Thursdays and "Grimm" on Friday nights.

Fan-favorite "Chuck" joins "Grimm" on Friday nights, while award-winning comedy "30 Rock" moves to midseason in the wake of Tina Fey's pregnancy news (she's due in September).

Also joining "30 Rock" for the midseason schedule are keepers "Celebrity Apprentice" and "The Voice," plus new shows "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," "Bent," "Best Friends Forever," "Awake," "Smash" and "The Firm."
