NBC announces fall schedule

CNN

(CNN) -- After cleaning house Friday and canceling a number of shows, NBC has unveiled its 2014 TV schedule.

As announced Sunday, the network has added three comedies and three dramas to its lineup.

Among the newcomers is David Caspe's "Marry Me," which stars "Happy Endings" actress Casey Wilson as half of a destined-to-be-duo who can't seem to get their proposal right.

On the drama side, NBC has announced new series like "State of Affairs" with Katherine Heigl and "Constantine," an adaptation of the popular DC Comics series "Hellblazer."

While NBC has said farewell to fan-favorite shows "Community" and "Revolution," it is keeping "Parks and Recreation" and "Parenthood," both of which will air their final seasons. The network's singing competition "The Voice" is also returning, as are "Grimm," "The Blacklist" and "Law & Order: SVU."

Here's a look at the network's new schedule (all times Eastern), along with sneak peeks at the new fall shows, which are in bold.

Monday

8-10 p.m.: "The Voice"

10-11 p.m.: "The Blacklist" / "State of Affairs" (beginning November 17): Katherine Heigl portrays Charleston "Charlie" Tucker, a CIA analyst who preps the President (Alfre Woodard) on the most pressing international issues. Adding a layer of complexity to their relationship is the fact that Charlie was once engaged to the President's son, who was killed in a terrorist attack.

Tuesday

8-9 p.m.: "The Voice"

9-9:30 p.m.: "Marry Me": Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) have been together for six years, and Jake planned to propose upon their return from an island getaway. But after a fight with Annie, his proposal is ruined, and the couple decide they need to figure out the right way to pop the question.

9:30-10 p.m.: "About a Boy"

10-11 p.m.: "Chicago Fire"

Wednesday

8-9 p.m.: "The Mysteries of Laura": Former "Will & Grace" star Debra Messing portrays Laura Diamond, an NYPD homicide detective who balances her demanding day job with being the mother of twin boys and the soon-to-be-ex-wife of a fellow cop.

9-10 p.m.: "Law & Order: SVU"

10-11 p.m.: "Chicago P.D."

Thursday

8-9 p.m.: "The Biggest Loser"

9-9:30 p.m.: "Bad Judge": Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh) is an unconventional judge who likes to party in her downtime, but an 8-year-old boy who loses his parents thanks to one of Rebecca's rulings may be the key to helping her settle down.

9:30-10 p.m.: "A to Z": Ben Feldman ("Mad Men") and Cristin Milioti ("How I Met Your Mother") star as an opposites-attract couple who meet by chance -- or is it fate?

10-11 p.m.: "Parenthood"

Friday

8-9 p.m.: "Dateline NBC"

9-10 p.m.: "Grimm"

10-11 p.m.: "Constantine": Matt Ryan ("Criminal Minds") plays demon hunter and dark arts master John Constantine, whom DC Comics fans know from the "Hellblazer" series.
