Repurpose, repackage, repeat. Whatever you want to call it, NBC is doing it to fill holes in its midseason lineup.

  • The broadcast network will repurpose episodes of USA’s popular shows “Monk” and “Psych” on Sunday nights beginning in March. Both series are set to return with new episodes in January.
  • NBC will also repurpose episodes of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” which moved its first run to USA this season, on Wednesday nights starting in January.
  • NBC will repackage the terrific online series “Quarterlife.” The show, from “My So-Called Life” producers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, has been airing in eight-minute installments on MySpace and at quarterlife.com for the past month. NBC will repackage the online episodes into six one-hour shows starting Monday, Feb. 18.
