Many of NBC's current shows aren't locks for next season, given low ratings, a new head of the network, perhaps a desire to make a clear break from the Jeff Zucker era. Only a handful of the network's series - notably "30 Rock," "The Biggest Loser" and a few other reality shows - already have been renewed for next season. But at the very least, we now know when the current (if not final) season for most NBC shows will be wrapping up.
