THOUGHTS

What’s good?

  • Choosing The Brave to follow The Voice on monday makes a lot of sense. They seem compatible and it gives the show the best platform NBC has right now.
  • Moving This Is Us to thursday night is very agressive and shows how much NBC is confident it will stay strong on its sophomore year. It’s gonna be tough for ABC’s TGIT in particular since they pursue kind of the same audience.
  • Cheap friday with Blinspot & Taken seems a good solution.
  • Keeping most of wednesday intact is not a surprise and the right move.

What’s bad?

  • Putting Will & Grace against The Big Bang Theory on thursday is putting way too much pressure on a show that stopped being strong when Friends ended. Though with football in the first weeks of its run, people who don’t watch sports might tune in.
  • Comedies after The Voice on Tuesday always got more than mixed results. Why would it change now?
  • Law & Order True Crime after This Is Us doesn’t look good on paper, especially because it means Chicago Med is benched for at least 8 weeks.
  • The Blacklist is again on the move. After monday and thursday, here comes wednesday. At this point of its run, it’s unlikely the show gets a boost…
  • Keeping so many shows for midseason means most of them will have to air during springtime -yes, after a big push during the Olympics- when the numbers are getting lower and lower every year; or in the summer for some of them…

    Lol. Oh nbc. This is isn’t a completely terrible schedule but it could have been better. This is us should have stayed on Tuesday. I know Thursday is powerful for ad dollars but I can’t feeling they just fed there scripted mvp new and old to the dogs. I like blindspot on Friday and The Brave on Monday. So much of this schedule is poop though.

    What about “Gone”? One of the first they picked up to series and still it seems like they’re not really relying on it, as it didn’t appear anywhere on their schedule.
