NBC has revealed its premiere schedule for the upcoming 2019 midseason, featuring the return of a critically acclaimed drama and the debut of a newly-minted EGOT inductee.
First up is "Good Girls," the buzzy drama starring Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men"), Retta ("Parks and Recreation"), and Mae Whitman ("Parenthood," "Arrested Development") as three suburban moms who decide to take back financial control of their lives by robbing a grocery store -- and wind up sinking deeper and deeper into criminal activity. Season two of the series will move from Mondays to Sundays, and return to NBC on March 3 at 10 p.m.
Next is "The Voice," which will add John Legend to the judging panel for its 16th season. Legend completed his EGOT cycle (a.k.a. winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) back in September, when he snagged a statuette at the Emmys for producing NBC's live version of "Jesus Christ Superstar."
The singer-actor's relationship with NBC was apparently so positive that he decided to spend even more time on the network. His debut as a full-time coach (he has previously been a mentor) will air on back to back nights: Monday, February 25 and Tuesday, February 26, both at 8 p.m. "The Voice" will then move to Mondays only for several weeks while "Ellen's Game of Games" takes its Tuesday slot; the singing competition will bring back Tuesday shows on April 23.
In other NBC midseason scheduling, Jennifer Lopez-led reality series "World of Dance" will premiere its third season on Tuesday, February 6 at 8 p.m. It will then move to its regular slot on Sundays at 8 p.m. on March 3.
And finally, sophomore sitcom "A.P. Bio," starring Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt, will return to class on Thursday, March 7 at 8:30 p.m.
We're already looking forward to lots of TV watching in the new year.
