NBC Nixing Aggressive Must See TV Schedule: This is Us Season 2 Staying Put
Instead of This is Us, NBC will be adding the Will & Grace reboot back to Thursday nights. The show will air at 9 p.m. and will be followed by Chicago Fire at 10 p.m. instead of Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. What’s more, comedies The Good Place, Superstore, and Great News will all join Will & Grace for its Thursday night line up.
For Tuesdays, audiences will be treated to The Voice at 8 p.m., followed by This is Us at 9 p.m. and then Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders at 10 p.m.
At first, many television insiders believed that NBC’s power play lineup was supposed to help them win the Thursday night ratings battle. But now it looks like This is Us is staying put. Many television insiders believe that the network is hoping to win big on both Tuesday and Thursday nights with This is Us and Will & Grace.
What’s more, This is Us producers are promising plenty of emotional and heart-tugging episodes for Season 2. The show’s execs say that they don’t want to leave fans dry before taking a break from the small screen with the 2018 Winter Olympics begin in February. That’s why they are planning several major episodes around the holidays as This is Us will be forced off the air because of the Olympics.
