NBC Cancels Ironside and Welcome to the Family, Sets Premiere Dates for Community and Chicago PD

at . Comments

NBC has announced the cancelation of two new shows, the return of a long-time favorite and the premiere of a spinoff.

First, the network has brought the axe down on Ironside and Welcome to the Family. Both freshman programs struggled from the outset.

NBC will replace the Blair Underwood-anchored drama in November and December with new episodes of Dateline, SNL holiday-themed specials and other original programming.

Then, Chicago P.D. will debut in this Wednesday-at-10 p.m. time slot on January 8 at 10 p.m. The series will star Jason Beghe, Jon Seda and Sophia Bush and others as police officers in The Windy City.

New Parks and Recreation episodes, meanwhile, will run from 8-9 p.m. on Thursdays, along with other holiday-themed specials.

On Thursday, January 2, Community Season 5 will kick off with back-to-back installments.
