But don’t expect NBC to ease off on its marketing efforts when the Olympics are over.

The new drama “Revolution,” for example, which received a roughly two-minute sneak peek Monday night (after a previously announced six-minute preview that was scheduled for Saturday fell through), won’t be in hiding until its debut at 10 p.m. EDT Monday, Sept. 17.

The trailer was posted online, and the first episode of the post-apocalyptic drama from producer-director J.J. Abrams of “Lost,” “Fringe” and the big screen’s “Star Trek,” will preview starting Sept. 4 on-demand and online through cable and other providers, NBC.com, Hulu and additional websites.
