After the announcements made by The CW and ABC for their fall finale dates, NBC is the next broadcast network to follow. The peacock channel released their list over the weekend. Read on.

One of NBC’s most popular series, “The Blacklist” will be bowing out from the schedule rather early and will go on a long hiatus this season. Shows from broadcast networks normally take breaks around this time of the year so that its cast and crew can observe Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year with their respective families and loved ones.

The dates are as follows:

Monday, Nov. 10, 2014 
The Blacklist

Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014

Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014
Chicago Fire”

Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014
“About A Boy”
Marry Me

Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014
“Chicago PD”
“Law & Order: SVU”
The Mysteries of Laura

Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014
Bad Judge
A to Z

The list does not include fall finale dates for Friday programs like “Grimm” and “Constantine,” which premiered on the network late in the schedule.

According to TV Line, some of these shows are expected to return after the Superbowl, which will air on Feb. 1, 2015. “Parenthood,” meanwhile, will return by January to deliver its final episodes. The series is going to end this season.

During the hiatus, NBC has prepared for event programming, delivering the live production of “Peter Pan,” which stars Christopher Walken and Alison Williams. The network will also bring the fifth season of the a capella singing competition, “The Sing-Off,” as a one-night two-hour event.

Viewers can also look forward to the debut of new shows for NBC’s latest programming slate after the holidays, such as the dramas “Allegiance “and “Aquarius” and the comedies “Mr. Robinson” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

For several consecutive weeks, NBC has been topping the numbers among the adult demo (18-49 years old), but two of its romantic comedies in the Thursday block has been losing heavily against competition. The network’s biggest ratings puller, “The Voice” and “The Blacklist,” are still performing well.
