NBC is revealing its new fall lineup this week


In New York City, it's the start of a big week for the major television networks.

They'll all be unveiling their program lineups for fall to the biggest national advertisers.

At NBC some of the network's past will be playing a big part in its plans for the fall.

Michael j. Fox became a star playing a wisecracking son on "Family Ties" in the 80's, now he'll be the dad this fall in NBC's new comedy "The Michael J. Fox Show".

Sean Hayes also returns to NBC Thursdays.

The former "Will and Grace" star will play a gay divorced dad to a teen daughter in "Sean Saves the World".

A third new Thursday comedy is "Welcome to the Family."

Cultures collide when an unplanned pregnancy brings white and Latino families together.

NBC also has two new dramas for fall, Blair Underwood stars in "Ironside", a reboot of the 70's hit about a paralyzed detective.

Meanwhile, James Spader is the center of attention in "Blacklist" as a most wanted criminal who mysteriously turns himself in and with help of a newly minted FBI profiler, offers to give up everyone he's ever worked with.

When the network officially unveils these primetime plans later on Sunday here at Radio City Music Hall, late night will also be part of the mix.

Including a new job for Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers.

The weekend update anchor will take over as the new host of "Late Night".

And it will start right after the Winter Olympics next February.
