NBC has just announced its premiere dates for the new fall season, and it looks like the network wants to be the early bird this year, thanks to the Peacock’s Summer Olympics coverage.
The first show to premiere, and still smack in the middle of the Olympics, is new comedy “Go On”, which will debut on Wednesday, August 8 with a special preview episode.
On the other hand, fans of “Community” will have to wait much longer for new episodes, as the show’s fourth season won’t start until Friday, October 19.
