NBC Announces Fall Premiere Dates: Blindspot and The Good Place Get Preview Airings
Today NBC announced the premiere dates of its 2016-17 fall season. Things pretty much adhere to the plan the Peacock network laid out during its upfront presentation in May, except that their sophomore hit Blindspot, along with two of their new shows, will get preview airings before settling into their usual timeslots.
Blindspot is technically the first show coming back, with Season 2 on Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10/9c, after the season finale of America's Got Talent. The following week it moves to its Wednesdays at 8/7c home. Mike Schur's The Good Place gets a preview on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 10/9c, after the 11th season premiere of The Voice (with new coaches Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys), then settles into its spot on Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on Sept. 22.
This Is Us will air at 10/9c, after the Tuesday Voice episode, for 3 weeks starting September 20. It makes its debut in the 9/8c slot on Oct. 11. The final new fall show, Timeless, debuts Monday, Oct. 3, at 10/9c.
