This Is Us

NBC is altering its 2017 fall schedule for Tuesdays and Thursdays, with “This Is Us” moving back to the time slot that it occupied in its widely popular first season.

The network had announced during its upfront presentation earlier this month that “This Is Us” would move to Thursdays, but the show is now going back to Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET, where it will follow “The Voice.”

“This Is Us” is scheduled to have a run of nine to 10 continuous episodes on Tuesdays, which fans should appreciate, due to the drama series’ highly serialized nature.

New series “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” will follow on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET, taking over for “Chicago Fire.” “Fire” is moving to Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET.

A number of comedies are getting juggled as well. “Will & Grace” is shifting to Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET, where it aired on five of its eight seasons during its original NBC run. “Great News” will follow at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, “Superstore” will air at 8 p.m. ET on Thursdays, with “The Good Place” on at 8:30 p.m. ET that day, returning both shows to the slots where that they occupied last season. During the upfronts, the network had announced that the two returning comedies would air an hour later.

NBC’s revised fall schedule is below.
