NBC is shuffling its prime-time schedule, including a revamp of the network’s Thursday night comedy block. The changes are part of a number of programming moves and premiere dates announced today.
The network is shifting the premiere of Dwayne Johnson’s new athletic competition series “The Titan Games” to Thursday, Jan. 3, from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT. The series will air in its regular timeslot on Thursdays from 8-9 p.m. beginning Jan. 10.
The move of “The Titan Games” to Thursday keeps NBC’s successful all-“Chicago” Wednesday lineup intact.
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will premiere Thursday, Jan. 10, at 9 p.m. and air weekly in that timeslot. “The Good Place” will shift to 9:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, Jan. 10, and will air in that timeslot through its season finale on Jan. 24.
“Will & Grace” will move to 9:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, Jan. 31. “Superstore” will be pre-empted before returning in March when the 8-10 p.m. two-hour comedy block returns with all original programming.
“I Feel Bad” will wrap in December. The show was always intended to air a 13-episode season to keep room in the lineup for a pair of upcoming comedies in “Abby’s” and “A.P. Bio.” NBC noted that a decision on the future of “I Feel Bad” will be made at a later date.
In the recent past, NBC has ordered 13-episode seasons for a handful of comedies, including “The Good Place” and “A.P. Bio.”
