Though NBC has yet to pick up any of the pilots ordered for fall, insiders report that the network is considering putting an entire night of women-centric comedy on the fall schedule.

Said potential programming would include the new offering from Chelsea Handler, where she'll produce a show loosely based upon her life starring That 70's Show's Laura Prepon. It would also showcase the untitled project from Emily Spivey — which will star Christina Applegate and Will Arnett — and the pilot from comedian Whitney Cummings that NBC also ordered. Keep in mind that this is all a big if, because NBC has to decide that they actually like the shows they've ordered. But this block of entertainment sounds promising — and could only be better is if they steal Kathie Lee and Hoda from Today's 4th hour to host!
