NBC Mid-Season 2017 Schedule; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 12, 2016)

NBC

With comedies Trial & Error and Great News both being given a Tuesday lead-in from The Voice, and Powerless launching on Thursdays immediately following hit comedy Superstore, NBC's midseason lineup will build aggressively on the strength and stability of all areas. Following a 90-minute telecast of The Voice on Tuesday, March 7, Trial & Error - co-starring five-time Emmy Award winner John Lithgow - will debut at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT and return the following week with back-to-back episodes beginning at 9 p.m. At the conclusion of Trial & Error, NBC's Great News - starring Briga Heelan and from executive producers and 30 Rock Emmy winners Tracey Wigfield, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock - will debut in its own hour-long block with back-to-back episodes beginning Tuesday, April 25 at 9 p.m.

Powerless, based on characters from DC Comics and starring Vanessa Hudgens, begins Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 p.m. following Superstore, one of the most critically applauded comedies on all of television and a solid rating performer that has helped NBC establish a promising comedy beachhead this fall on Thursday nights. In addition, as part of its comprehensive midseason schedule, NBC is debuting a powerful new Sunday lineup beginning March 5 with the return of Little Big Shots at 8pm; Chicago Justice with Philip Winchester, the latest installment of the highly successful Chicago franchise from super-producer Dick Wolf at 9pm; and the second season of hit drama Shades of Blue, which stars Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta at 10pm. Also, NBC has set Thursday, Feb. 23 as the premiere for the highly anticipated spinoff The Blacklist: Redemption starring Ryan Eggold, which will seamlessly air in the same 10 p.m. timeslot as The Blacklist for eight weeks. At the conclusion of The Blacklist: Redemption, James Spader and The Blacklist will return at 10 p.m. Thursday, April 20 with a two-hour episode. As previously announced, the spring cycle of The Voice will premiere with a two-hour telecast on Monday, Feb. 27 at 8 p.m.
