NBC has pulled the curtain back on its 2017 midseason schedule and the Peacock net is handing off This Is Us‘ cushy post-Voice Tuesday timeslot to a pair of new comedies, while relocating Shades of Blue to Sunday night. The Blacklist spinoff, meanwhile, will take over the mothership’s Thursday-at-10/9c perch for two months.
Keep reading for a breakdown of the key tweaks:
TUESDAY | After This Is Us wraps its breakout rookie season in late February, back-to-back episodes of freshman half-hour comedy Trial & Error (starring John Lithgow) will fill the 9/8c void. (The show will debut with a single episode on March 7 at 9:30/8:30c after a 90-minute episode of The Voice, before going into double-pump mode starting March 14.) And then starting April 25, back-to-back episodes of Great News (from 30 Rock duo Tiny Fey and Robert Carlock) will take over the slot. (This Is Us returns Jan. 10, FYI.)
THURSDAY | DC Comics’ Danny Pudi-Vanessa Hudgens comedy Powerless will assume The Good Place‘s post-Superstore timeslot at 8:30/7:30c beginning Feb. 2. The Blacklist: Redemption, meanwhile, will launch on Feb. 23 in The Blacklist: Original Flavor‘s 10/9c timeslot, and remain there for eight weeks. The Blacklist returns with original episodes on April 20.
SUNDAY | Little Big Shots will kick off Season 2 on March 5 at 8/7c, where it will be followed by the premiere of Dick Wolf’s latest Windy City offshoot Chicago Justice (9/8c) and Season 2 of Shades of Blue (10/9c).
