NBC can't stick with a decision this year -- and we appreciate it! After cancelling, then uncancelling "Timeless," the network has followed up by reversing its decision to move breakout hit "This Is Us" from Tuesdays to Thursdays. It was a surprise move to begin with, especially with Thursday night football interruptions, but it was part of their plan to bring back "Must See TV" on Thursdays.
However, TVLine revealed, "This Is Us" Season 2 will now stay put on Tuesdays at 9 p.m., following "The Voice." (Hopefully NBC doesn't change its mind on giving "This Is Us" the post-Super Bowl spot.) Thursdays will now include the sitcom lineup of "Superstore," "The Good Place, "Will & Grace," and "Great News." That's still Must See TV from here, and a good call to not mess with the good thing of our Tuesday night appointment television.
"Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders" was going to follow "This Is Us" on Thursdays and will now follow the show on Tuesdays. "Chicago Fire" is moving from Tuesdays to Thursdays after all of those sitcoms.
Here's the new fall 2017 schedule:
8 p.m.: "The Voice"
9 p.m. "This Is Us"
10 p.m. "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders"
8 p.m. "Superstore"
8:30 p.m. "The Good Place"
9 p.m. "Will & Grace"
9:30 p.m. "Great News"
10 p.m. "Chicago Fire"
The rest of the previously revealed lineup should still be as-is. Many fans are happy at the "This Is Us" change (if not the "Chicago Fire" change), especially "Scandal" fans who didn't want to make the tough call between favorite shows on Thursday nights. ABC may also be relieved to have "This Is Us" away from its TGIT lineup.
