Oh, Love Bites. The ambitious NBC anthology-dramedy-thingy has endured a rough road to the air, having been delayed and pushed back across NBC’s schedule.

But now the network has given Becki Newton’s project a date to fill a slot during the summer: Thursdays at 10 p.m. starting June 2. Newton has another potential gig lined up, a CBS comedy pilot, should NBC’s modest expectations for Bites prove correct.
