NBC unveiled its fall schedule yesterday at its annual upfront event.

The network had already announced the majority of its comedy and drama pick ups last week but used the event to announce a number of reality series including Stars Earn Stripes, Howie Mandel’s White Elephant, Ready for Love and Surprise With Jenny McCarthy and the official cancellation of series including The Firm, The Marriage Ref and Fear Factor.  

“We’ve taken a few first steps toward a turnaround over this past season and now we’re seeing a real opportunity to accelerate that process,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt.
