#NBC's Upcoming 2016-2017 Fall Schedule: #Blindspot moves, Comedy comes back to Thursday Nights
On Sunday, NBC has released it’s up coming 2016-2017 fall schedule and the one big news to take out of this is the decision of moving Blindspot from Mondays at 10 to Wednesdays at 8pm.
It’ll be replacing the (surprisingly) cancelled Mysteries of Laura, while the Monday Post-Voice slot will go to the new sci-fi drama Timeless.
The network is given comedy another shot on Thursday nights with Superstore at 8pm followed by the new Kristen Bell-Ted Danson comedy The Good Place. Chicago Med will move in the 9pm while The Blacklist will take the 10pm. Superstore will air a special episode during the Summer Olympic games.
As the schedule was released on Sunday, later in the day news come that The Carmichael Show was renewed for a third season of 13 episodes. For which I was so excited to hear of the renewal.
The one show that’s still up in the air is the pilot to the film Cruel Intentions. It may not have gotten a series pick up just yet but there’s word that there’s still talks going on that even it might air during the summer. So there’s still hope yet for the series to air on NBC or it may get shopped around.
The show will be in line with other returning shows during the midseason or later: Returning shows: Shades of Blue and Celebrity Apprentice, new comedies Trail & Error, Great News, Powerless and Marlon, and new dramas Chicago Justice, Taken, Midnight Texas, Emerald City and The Blacklist: Redemption.
