Los Angeles – Desperate times call for desperate measures. With ratings in the crapper, NBC will be airing 14 new shows next year.

According to the AP:

NBC is turning to some proven players for next year’s schedule, resurrecting its “Heroes” franchise, bringing back Craig T. Nelson as “Coach” and turning to veteran producer Dick Wolf for a medical drama based in Chicago.

The network will also try its hand at doing a live sitcom:

The network is also trying the interesting experiment of airing the sitcom “Undateable” live each week. It’s NBC’s only returning comedy. Favorites “The Voice” and “The Blacklist” will be back in the same time slots.

The fourteen new series will include six comedies, seven dramas and one variety show. Given the year-round nature of TV schedules now, only six will begin with the traditional September start to a new season.

The comedies “Marry Me,” ”About a Boy,” ”One Big Happy,” ”A to Z” and “Bad Judge” are all cancelled. So are “State of Affairs,” ”Constantine” and “Allegiance.”

NBC has 14 new shows. How many do you think will get picked up?
