NBC's Fall 2016 Schedule: Thursday Comedies, 'Timeless' After 'The Voice'
NBC has revealed its schedule for Fall 2016 and it includes the return of comedies to Thursday nights, moves for Blindspot and The Blacklist and three consecutive nights of Chicago dramas.
Blindspot is taking the same trajectory as Revolution, moving from Mondays at 10pm to Wednesdays at 8pm. Speaking of Revolution, which was created by Eric Kripke, his new action series Timeless will inherit that lucky time slot of Mondays at 10pm. Over the past three years, it helped guarantee early full-season pick-ups and season 2 renewals for Blindspot, The Blacklist and Revolution.
Another new drama, This Is Us starring Milo Ventimiglia, will also get a post- Voice airing Tuesdays at 9pm. Meanwhile, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med will be spread out over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
On Thursdays, comedy returns to NBC with season 2 of Superstore and the new Ted Danson/Kristen Bell comedy The Good Place (about a woman who mistakenly gets sent to Heaven) airing at 8pm. The Blacklist will move to 10pm.
In addition to the four new mid-season shows that were cancelled, NBC also axed Undateable and The Mysteries of Laura. The Carmichael Show is still on the bubble as the network is in negotiations over the number of episodes for a possible season 3 renewal..
NBC has a lot of shows being held until mid-season, including the new Celebrity Apprentice and season 2 of Jennifer Lopez's Shades of Blue. New shows for mid-season include four comedies ( Powerless, Trial and Error, Great News and Marlon) and five dramas ( Emerald City, Taken, Midnight, Texas and spin-offs Chicago Justice and The Blacklist: Redemption).
