NBC is shaking up its ratings-challenged prime-time lineup, with an eye toward shoring up the sagging 10 p.m. hour. Among the changes are to bolster its Thursday night comedy block to three hours by shifting "30 Rock" and "Outsourced" to 10 p.m. The network also will tinker with its drama programming, with the Jan. 17 launch of David E. Kelley's "Harry's Law," at 10 p.m. on Mondays, with a plan in March to replace it with "Parenthood," which now airs on Tuesdays. The dominoes would continue with "Law & Order: Los Angeles," then shifting from Wednesdays to Tuesdays, and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" settling in on Wednesdays.
