The sophomore season of “Blindspot” bows Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10 p.m., immediately following the season finale of “America’s Got Talent.” The 11th season of “The Voice” begins Monday, Sept. 19 with new coaches Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus joining Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and the powerhouse vocal competition will serve as the lead-in for back-to-back episodes of Mike Schur’s freshman comedy “The Good Place,” starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, offering a prime perch for the laffer. “The Voice” has previously been used to launch hit dramas “Blindspot” and “The Blacklist,” which starts the new comedy off in a very good place indeed. The new comedy will then shift to its normal 8:30 p.m. Thursday timeslot three days later, on Sept. 22.

“This Is Us,” starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown, will debut Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. following “The Voice,” and continue in that time period until shifting to its normal 9 p.m. slot on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

Wednesday, Sept. 21 marks the time period premiere of “Blindspot” at 8 p.m., followed by the 18th season premiere of “Law & Order: SVU” and Season 4 debut of “Chicago P.D.”

On Thursday, Sept. 22, “Superstore” returns for its second season, followed by the timeslot premiere of “The Good Place.” At 9 p.m., “Chicago Med” will return, followed by the Season 4 premiere of “The Blacklist” at 10 p.m.

Friday, Sept. 23 marks the return of “Caught on Camera with Nick Cannon” at 8 p.m. and “Dateline NBC” from 9-11 p.m.

Monday, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. sees the debut of “Timeless,” from Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”) and Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”), about a history professor who teams with a scientist and soldier to try and prevent a mysterious criminal from changing the past, and the following week, on Tuesday, Oct. 11, “This Is Us” makes its time period premiere at 9 p.m., followed by the Season 5 premiere of “Chicago Fire.”

    When will Chicago Justice start?

  2. CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEW SEASON OF DANCING WITH THE STARS & ALSO THE VOICE. IT ANNOYS ME I HAVE TO SWITCH BACK & FORTH TO WATCH THESE TWO AT THE SAME TIME. I WISH THEY WOULD HAVE THEM ON DIFFERENT NIGHTS SO I COULD WATCH EACH SHOW IN FULL INSTEAD OF PIECES OF EACH. CAN ANYONE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?

  3. The voice has lost me as a viewer this coming year due to the hiring of Miley Cyrus.

  4. Pretty weak lineup from NBC…

  5. JOE S HILL says:

    NBC 50 years ago in Fall 1966:”STAR TREK”,”TARZAN”,”THE GIRL FROM UNCLE”,”HEY LANDLORD!”,”OCCASIONAL WIFE”,and “THE MONKEES” NBC,50 years later,,total shit!!
    what used to be the National Broadcasting Company,is now Nothing But Crap!!

  6. Clarke says:

    FOUR hours of The Voice? LOL. NBC is unwatchable. What a friggin’ mess.

  7. Clarksen says:

    My goodness, what a completely miserable line-up for a so-called major network. There may be two average shows in the lot, the rest is complete B.S. NBC is a failure.

  8. gabe says:

    I know what I’m doing on September 21st

  9. Dunstan says:

    Traditional network television is D.O.A. There isn’t a single one-hour show of interest on CBS, NBC or ABC. And the CW and FOX aren’t far behind.
