The New Normal
NBC has canceled a number of shows for their new season. NBC

NBC bet last fall on a slew of TV shows to try amp its meager ratings -- and it didn't pay off.

The Peacock network has decided to ax a bunch of recently premiered shows, including the Broadway musical "Smash," modern family comedy "The New Normal," and sitcom "Up All Night." Other shows who got canceled included "Whitney," "Guys With Kids," "Rock Center," "1600 Penn" and "Deception."

These shows follow the path of other recently deceased shows like "Animal Practice," "Do No Harm," and the much missed "30 Rock."

The network will fill the newly available spots with three new dramas and three new comedies come fall, and has eleven new programs planned for the 2013-14 season.

Shows that stay include "Parenthood," which will move to Thursday, "Revolution" and "The Voice," which is the leading rating show on the network.

The quirky show "Community" has also been renewed, but still has no slot.
