Fall TV Preview

NBC Fall Schedule: SVU, The Blacklist on the Move, One Chicago Night, B99 Held to Midseason, Timeless in Limbo

NBC Fall Schedule

With Upfronts Week 2018 nigh, NBC as is tradition was the first broadcast-TV network to announce its schedule for the fall TV season. Conspicuously missing from the Peacock net’s lineup — remaining bubble series Timeless and Champions. During a conference call with reporters, NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt said a final decision on both shows will come down quickly “after they finish” their current runs. (Timeless wraps its second season tonight.)

♦ Dick Wolf’s “One Chicago” franchise is getting its own night, with Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. all airing on Wednesday.

Law & Order: SVU is moving to Thursdays after NBC’s returning comedy block (save for Great News, R.I.P.)

♦ Season 2 of summer series Midnight, Texas has scored a fall promotion. 

♦ Newly-acquired Brooklyn Nine-Nine is being held until midseason (time slot TBD). Also on deck for early 2019: Good Girls (which moves to Sundays at 10 pm after football), The Blacklist (shifting to Fridays at 9 pm after Blindspot), A.P. Bio (time slot TBD) and the recently announced America’s Got Talent: The Champions (which will air Mondays at 8 pm in January and February before The Voice‘s second cycle bows).
