It seems that NBC isn’t quite done with the relationship between Ray Romano and Lauren Graham. The bizarre couple (Hank Rizzoli and Sarah) will be a large portion of the show next season, with some reports putting Ray in as much as 15 of next season’s episodes.
Different sources are reporting different totals but all seem to point to Romano being a steady constant on the show. Fans will remember that Mark Cyr (played by Jason Ritter) was rejected by Sarah in hopes to be closer to Hank. It was at that time that Sarah learned that Hank would be leaving for Minnesota, as his ex-wife was planning on moving his daughter there permanently.
NBC has moved Parenthood to Thursdays at 10pm next fall, hoping to capture more viewers but gambling against some of the larger shows that are on at that time. It will be interesting to see what happens next season, though we are pretty sure Sarah will not be moving to Minnesota.
