2009–10 United States network television schedule

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is the 2009–10 network television schedule for the five major English-language commercial broadcast networks in the United States. The schedule covers primetime hours from September 2009 through May 2010. The schedule is followed by a list per network of returning series, new series, and series canceled after the 2008/09 season.

PBS is not included; member stations have local flexibility over most of their schedules and broadcast times for network shows may vary. NBC stripped The Jay Leno Show weeknights at 10 pm Eastern/9 p.m. Central, but removed it after the Winter Olympics. The CW eliminated its Sunday night programming block and returned that time to local affiliates.[1] After three years as a network, MyNetworkTV became a syndication programming service, and therefore not a recognized as a network, but its programs are still listed in this article.[2] Fox announced its schedule on May 18, both ABC and NBC on May 19, CBS on May 20, and The CW on May 21.
