NBC is the first broadcast network to unveil its schedule for the 2017-18 TV season, and the big news on the returning-show front is the Peacock’s decision to shift breakout hit This IsUs from Tuesdays-at-9 to Thursdays-at-9. In its new slot, it will follow returning Must-See vet Will & Grace (at 8 pm) and the Tina Fey-produced sophomore comedyGreat News (at 8:30 pm).

“Our hope is to create the return of Must-See TV on Thursday,” said NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt in a conference call with reporters on Sunday. “We really wanted to go after Thursday in a big way.” Greenblatt confirms that the actual Must-See branding will return this fall. And as previously reported, Will & Grace‘s episode count has been increased to 12. The exec also revealed that Fey will make several guest appearances on Great News this fall.

Former Thursday staple The Blacklist will move into the Wednesday lead-off position, while Superstore and The Good Place will head to Tuesdays.

Also of note: Blindspot will relocate to Fridays at 8 pm, where it will be paired with second-year drama Taken; and new military drama The Brave has scored the cushy post-Voice perch on Mondays.

Regarding the fate of remaining bubble series Chicago Justice and Trial & Error, Greenblatt said decisions on those will be made in the coming days and (possibly) weeks. Also the buzzy Casey Wilson-Busy Phillips comedy pilot The Sackett Sisters is not dead. Said Greenblatt: “We have’t definitively said no” to picking it up.

On tap for midseason or later: Returning series Chicago Med (airing Thursdays once L&O: True Crime‘s eight-episode run ends), Shades of Blue and Timeless, and the new scripted series RISE, A.P. BIO, GOOD GIRLS, CHAMPIONS and REVERIE.
