jim parsons big bang theory 320 Fall 2010 TV schedule, night by nightNow that ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, and The CW have all put their cards on the table, the Fall 2010 TV schedule is locked down.

Some big changes are coming — particularly at NBC, where Jay Leno freed up five hours of primetime realty by moving back into his “Tonight Show” seat. With 13 new pickups (eight for fall and five more for midseason), NBC hopes to recover from a year full of media scrutiny and audience criticism.

In a surprising move, CBS made the decision to move their most-watched comedy, “The Big Bang Theory,” to 8 p.m. Thursdays, challenging NBC’s Thursday night comedy block. Following that at 8:30 p.m. is the first ever television show whose title can not be said on air, the hotly anticipated Twitter-based “$#*! My Dad Says” with William Shatner.

After a successful 2009-2010 season, FOX has opted not to change things up too much; one new drama and two comedies will join its fall schedule. The CW, for the first time ever, will be offering 10 hours of original programming Monday through Friday.

Here’s the full broadcast prime-time schedule for fall. Mouse over each day to see the grid.
