Dec 15, 2014  •  Post A Comment

NBC’s Must See TV Thursday comedy block is now history, with the network releasing a midseason schedule that features three drama series in Thursday prime time, Nellie Andreeva reports on Deadline.com.

NBC will anchor Thursdays with “The Blacklist” at 9 p.m., with the show moving to the slot Feb. 5 after an airing following the Super Bowl. “The Blacklist” will help debut the new drama “Allegiance” at 10 p.m., while the limited drama “The Slap” will air at 8 p.m.

“The last time NBC had an all-drama Thursday lineup was 35 years ago, in the 1979-80 season, when it aired ‘Buck Rogers in the 25th Century,’ ‘Quincy M.E.’ and ‘Kate Loves a Mystery,’” Andreeva notes.

With the midseason changes, NBC is putting “Marry Me” and “About a Boy” on hold, Variety reports, with both shows to return later in the season.
