NBC Thinks It Has a Winner With ‘Minute to Win It’

It’s replacing ”Mercy“ for three weeks with the game show

NBC is replacing struggling drama "Mercy" with new gameshow "Minute to Win It," according to an email sent to affiliates Friday.

The change is effective immediately and will last three weeks. "Mercy" was scheduled to air repeat episodes during those weeks.

"Minute" also will air Sundays.

NBC also has decided to delay the return of "Friday Night Lights" a week, to May 7, the email said. The reason: It’s happy with how "Who Do You Think You Are?" Is doing on the night.

We’re checking in with NBC now to confirm, but these affiliate emails are usually right.

UPDATE 3:10 PM: NBC has confirmed the changes. "Mercy" will be back with original episodes later in April, the network says.
