Fans of NBC Fall TV, The Future Is Now!

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg

If you’re anything like me, then you have a penchant for ’80s movies and still re-live the moment you were kicked in the face by a kid doing something called a crane kick. But it also means you are eagerly awaiting the fall television season.

Lucky for us, Hulu and NBC are giving us the Hulu Fall Lineup. Beginning today, and running over the next seven weeks, Hulu will air many of NBC’s season premieres a week early online. For those who have been waiting decades for another Knight Rider, your wait just got diminished by a week. Life and Lipstick Jungle also premiere a week earlier.

Perhaps the show to benefit the most from this, however, is Chuck. NBC has high hopes for its sophomore season, even ordering an additional nine episodes after the network saw its first six completed shows (raising its season order from 13 to 22 episodes). Chuck fans can watch the season premiere a week early online, with its Hulu premiere beginning Sept. 22.

Still no word on whether or not NBC and Hulu will power up the Flux Capacitor to bring us advanced airings of Saturday Night Live. I’m going out on a limb here, and leaning towards no.
