The series premiere of Knight Rider and the season premieres of Chuck, Life and Lipstick Jungle will be available on Hulu one week before they appear on NBC's primetime lineup.
Hulu is setting up a dedicated section of the site for new fall programming, where it will aggregate all of the season and series premieres from its participating networks, most notably NBC and Fox.
The Hulu Fall Lineup, as it is being called, will premiere new episodes of primetime shows for seven straight weeks beginning Sept. 2.
It's an interesting move to experiment with the release time for new TV series or episodes online before they air on TV. The more conventional approach - simultaneous release or making episodes online immediately after they air â€“ has advantages too of course. ABC Family is doing that with shows like "Secret Life of the American Teenager" and "Greek" on Lycos Cinema (cinema.lycos.com). The appeal there is that fans can watch (or rewatch) the episode and chat about it real-time with other fans.
