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.)
♦ 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).
