Carol Burnett Coming to Help Netflix; Revised NBC and Fox Fall 2017 Premiere Dates

Carol Burnett - A Little Help

Comedy legend Carol Burnett is coming to the world's leading internet TV network with the original unscripted comedy A Little Help with Carol Burnett. Featuring pint-sized opinions from a panel of straight-talking 4-8-year-olds, Carol and her guests will reveal how a different generation solves life's biggest dilemmas. In each of the 12 half-hour episodes, both celebrities and everyday people will bring their real-life issues to a gaggle of kids who dish back hilarious, hard-hitting guidance--all in front of a live studio audience. The series will premiere in 2018.


NBC

NBC has fine-tuned a pair of timeslots for fall premiere. On Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 10pm (new date and time), comedy The Good Place will launch its second season with a special one-hour episode immediately following the two-hour season finale of America's Got Talent. Then, The Good Place will air in its regularly scheduled timeslot at 8:30 p.m. Thursday the following week on Sept. 28. On Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 8pm (new date), The Blacklist, begins its fifth season a week earlier than originally planned.

Fox

Fox has made some minor edits to the fall premiere dates, too. The Orville debuts with two-night premiere event Sunday, Sept. 10 and Sunday, Sept. 17, immediately following NFL On Fox Doubleheaders and The O.T., LIVE to all time zones. Season four of Gotham will now premiere a week earlier on Thursday, Sept. 21 at 8:00PM ET/PT, followed by the time period premiere of Seth MacFarlane's new space adventure series, The Orville (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), on Fox. The Orville is a live-action, one-hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that follows the exploits of The U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship.
