TV Land Cuts 3rd Rock from the Sun Tuesday Block; NBC Slices 100 Questions Order

TV Land is making a last minute schedule change on Tuesday nights in their PRIME block. Effective Tuesday, December 8, 2009 (tomorrow!), Roseanne takes over the Tuesday 10pm-12am block replacing 3rd Rock from the Sun, which goes off the regular schedule again. This is only temporary as Home Improvement will take this block come January.
As for 3rd Rock from the Sun, fans can still watch the holiday episodes on the 10th Annual Merrython on Sunday (Dec. 13)at 12:30am & 1am and again on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) at 2am & 2:30am. TV Land has rights to the series until next October, so it could reappear once again on the regular schedule.
View the updated TV Land December 2009 schedule and highlights.

NBC's upcoming mid-season sitcom 100 Questions has just had its episode order cut from 13 to 6. It makes sense since the earliest it could launch is in March, as NBC has already announced their January/February plans.
100 Questions is a multicamera comedy unlike the four NBC comedies currently on the air, which are single-camera. However, the network is developing mostly multicamera sitcoms for next season, the HR reports. The sitcom, which underwent recasting of several roles after upfront, stars Brit Sophie Winkleman as a young woman looking for love who joins a popular online dating site.
It is is still unclear of the launch date and the night and time the series will air. It will likely give a 6-week break to either Community or Parks & Recreation. Both of those series have done not too well in the ratings, but have been ordered for a full 22 episode season.
Also, scripted series wise NBC has the upcoming four-hour mini-series Day One, which they canceled as a regular series and the family drama Parenthood, which as of now still has a 13 episode order and will likely launch right after the Winter Olympics end.
ABC also cut the episode order of their mid-season multicamera sitcom Romantically Challenged, but from 13 to 7 episodes due to not enough time to air 13 episodes. A night and time has not been announced yet for that series as well.
