Before diving into this list with some analysis included, a few things to remember here. First, all of the times listed are Eastern, so adjust accordingly depending on your location. Also, these times are all subject to change, which should be important to note given that NBC already previously announced a switch this is bringing This Is Us back to its original timeslot.
Monday, September 25
8:00 – The Voice
10:00 – The Brave (new series)
No surprise here, given that NBC often starts their fall schedule off with the premiere of The Voice. This time, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson will be joining the roster of coaches.
Tuesday, September 26
8:00 – The Voice
9:00 – This Is Us
10:00 – Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders
There was a time when NBC would air two hours of The Voice on a Tuesday, but clearly here there is less of a desire to do that given the fact that they have This Is Us, which is their #1 show at this point, coming on after it.
Wednesday, September 27
8:00 – The Voice (special episode)
9:00 – Law & Order: SVU
10:00 – Chicago PD
The biggest challenge is Chicago PD, which is going to air its first episodes without Sophia Bush as the star. The Voice airing here is how the show is making up for not having two hours on Tuesday.
Thursday, September 28
8:00 – Superstore
8:30 – The Good Place
9:00 – Will & Grace (revival)
9:30 – Great News (new time)
10:00 – Chicago Fire (new time)
The Will & Grace revival will either make or break this night. If it’s a hit, maybe it lifts up everything that is surrounding it on the night.
Wednesday, October 4
8:00 – The Blacklist (new time)
Friday, October 27
8:00 – Blindspot (new time)
There is an opening at the 9:00 p.m. spot at the moment, with Taken being bumped to midseason. It will be interesting to see what NBC decides to air in that show’s place given that there are a wide array of options for them.
