‘Undateable,’ ‘Crossbones’ and ‘Night Shift’ get NBC summer premieres

For 10 months, they've been pictures on the side of milk cartons, but… 

“Crossbones” lives!

“Undateable” lives!

“The Night Shift” lives!

NBC announced six scripted additions to its already busy summer slate on Wednesday (March 26) and if you were looking for premiere dates for all of the mysteriously vanished shows the network unveiled last May, we've found them!

In all, NBC will be airing six original scripted shows this summer, the most for any broadcast network in more than 20 years, so NBC says. [By my count, ABC's summer schedule will include five original scripted shows.]

Once again: Never say that there's nothing to watch on TV in the summer.

On to those premieres…

[Note that NBC previously announced premiere dates for “Last Comic Standing” (Thursday, May 22), “American Ninja Warrior” (Monday, May 26) and “America's Got Talent” (Tuesday, May 27).]
