Tuesdays on NBC (8-8:30 p.m. ET)

Nominated for six Emmy Awards and five Golden Globes (including Best Comedy), “Just Shoot Me” is the critically acclaimed ensemble comedy from multiple award-winning writer/producer Steven Levitan (NBC’s “Frasier,” “The Larry Sanders Show”). Now entering its seventh season, the series shifts to Tuesday nights after generating top-10 demographic ratings over the past two seasons as part of NBC’s top-rated “Must See TV” Thursday lineup.

Set in the New York editorial offices of the fictional fashion magazine Blush, “Just Shoot Me” follows the lives of Blush’s colorful staff, including Maya Gallo (Laura San Giacomo, “sex, lies and videotape”), a serious journalist who is determined to change the magazine’s “fluffy” tone despite the efforts of her father, Blush publisher Jack Gallo (George Segal, “Flirting with Disaster”), who remains focused solely on his bottom line and the things he feels women want.

Also on staff are beauty and fashion editor Nina Van Horn (Emmy nominee Wendie Malick, “Dream On”), a fast-living, neurotic ex-model; Blush’s commitment-phobic, in-house photographer, Elliott DiMauro (Enrico Colantoni, “Galaxy Quest”); and Jack’s wisecracking, power-hungry assistant, Dennis Finch (David Spade, NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”).

This season, “Just Shoot Me” also welcomes Emmy Award-winning actress Rena Sofer (“General Hospital,” NBC’s “Ed”) to the cast. Sofer joins as Blush’s newest hire, Vicki Costa, a Brooklyn hairstylist who serves as Jack’s guru of style and confidante.

During the 2001-02 season, “Just Shoot Me” was primetime’s No. 3-ranked, full-season comedy among adults 18-49 and won its fiercely competitive time period among adults, men and women 18-34.

“Just Shoot Me” is produced by Universal Studios. Series creator Levitan serves as executive producer along with Judd Pillot (“Coach”), John Peaslee (“Coach”), Jon Pollack (“Spin City”), Kevin Slattery and Pamela Fryman. Fryman will also direct each episode this season.
