NBC Revamps Fall 2006 Line-Up; 'My Fair Brady' Season 2 Starts Sunday!

There was a rumor that NBC would move new fall drama Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip from Thursdays to Mondays (because ABC put Grey's Anatomy on Thursdays next fall), but that would probably be the only change. Guess what? They did make that change and much more. Monday through Friday sees at least one change each for each night. Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip will move to Mondays at 10 p.m. The most surprising move is moving the original Law & Order to Friday nights. Crossing Jordan goes from mid-season to Fridays in the fall, while Medium goes from Mondays in the fall to mid-season. I wonder if the advertisers are now pissed at NBC? They had an upfront just 10 days ago, and now NBC revamps 5 of the 7 nights. They were promised this schedule and now they change it? It doesn't make sense to me, but Mondays look better now for NBC probably but Wednesdays look terrible to me:

Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry are going to the chapel and they're getting married...maybe! VH1 reunites America with the reality sweethearts who first laid eyes and other bodily parts on each other on the set of Surreal Life 4. From there, the May-December love blossomed and now they're engaged and planning a wedding. Premiering Sunday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, My Fair Brady: We're Getting Married! captures all the challenges of planning a traditional wedding with the most untraditional couple.
When you last saw them...Adrianne told Chris that she needed a rock-solid commitment from him (i.e. an engagement ring) or she would move out, get her own place and their relationship would be over. Feeling frustrated and pressured, Chris told her he did not think he could give her what she wanted. Thus, Adrianne began apartment hunting, while Chris began contemplating the possibility of losing the love of his life. In the season finale he mustered the courage to propose, but can this May-December couple survive the pressures of getting married?
