After initially announcing a big change of moving “This Is Us” to Thursday nights, NBC reversed course and kept the show on Tuesdays. It will lead in to “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” at 10 p.m.
The return of “Will & Grace” and Season 2 of “Great News” will join returning comedies “Superstore” and “The Good Place” on Thursday nights. “Chicago Fire” moves to 10 on Thursdays (NBC also has the final weeks of “Thursday Night Football” starting Nov. 9).
“This Is Us” will also get the post-Super Bowl spot on Feb. 4, 2018.
“The Blacklist” moves to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays as “Blindspot” shuffles off to Friday nights along with “Taken.” Aside from “L&O True Crime,” the only new show on for fall is military drama “The Brave,” which gets the post-“Voice” spot Monday.
“Chicago Med” will likely take the 10 p.m. Tuesday spot after “True Crime” ends its run. “Little Big Shots” and “Shades of Blue” will return to Sundays next spring, and “Taken” and the the un-canceled “Timeless” are also on deck for 2018.
New shows for later in the season include dramas “Rise,” from Jason Katims; “Good Girls,” starring Retta and Mae Whitman; and “Reverie,” starring Sarah Shahi. On the comedy side, the network has “A.P. Bio” and “Champions.”
Several unscripted series — “Ellen’s Game of Games,” from Ellen DeGeneres; Chris Hardwick’s “The Awesome Show”; returning game show “The Wall”; smart-kids showcase “Genius Junior,” hosted by Neil Patrick Harris; and “The Handmade Project” from Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.
