Here is NBC’s schedule for fall 2018. New shows are in italics.

7 p.m. 7:30 p.m. 8 p.m. 8:30 p.m. 9 p.m. 9:30 p.m. 10 p.m. 10:30 p.m.
The Voice Manifest
Tuesday The Voice This Is Us New Amsterdam
Wednesday Chicago Med (new time period) Chicago Fire (new time period) Chicago PD
Thursday Superstore The Good Place Will & Grace I Feel Bad Law & Order: SVU (new time period)
Friday Blindspot Midnight, Texas (new time period) Dateline
Saturday Dateline Mystery SNL Vintage
Sunday Football Night in America Sunday Night Football


The network is opting for a fairly light load of new series in the fall, with all three newcomers having relatively solid lead-ins (insomuch as scheduling still matters). Mystery drama “Manifest” will get the 10 p.m. Monday spot after “The Voice,” and medical show “New Amsterdam” will follow “This Is Us” at 10 on Tuesdays.

The lone new comedy for fall, “I Feel Bad,” gets the 9:30 Thursday spot after “Will & Grace.”

NBC also moved a couple of established shows: “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire” are headed to Wednesday for an all-Windy City night, as “Chicago PD” stays put at 10. The 20th season of “Law & Order: SVU” moves to the 10 o’clock Thursday spot “Chicago Fire” occupied this season.

Veteran series “The Blacklist” will return in January 2019, running at 9 p.m. Fridays in a repeat-free scheduling pattern. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which NBC picked up after FOX canceled it, is also set for midseason.

Season 3 of “World of Dance” will move from summer to spring, airing on Sundays in March. It will be paired with the second season of “Good Girls.” New shows “Abby’s,” “The Enemy Within,” “The InBetween” and “The Village” will also come in the second half of the season.
