NBC Slots Comedies ‘Superstore,’ ‘Telenovela’ for Mondays in January

Both Will Get Preview Airings Behind 'The Voice' This Fall

NBC’s new comedies “Superstore” and “Telenovela” will air on Mondays starting in January, though each will get a sneak preview on the night following “The Voice” later this fall, the network announced Monday.

Superstore,” starring America Ferrera, will air back-to-back from 10-11 p.m. following a two-hour telecast of “The Voice” on Monday, Nov. 30. And “Telenovela,” featuring Eva Longoria as the star of a hit Spanish soap opera, will follow with back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m. on Dec. 7. The comedies, both which had their episode order trimmed by NBC two weeks ago, will be airing during a midseason hiatus of the network’s new hit drama “Blindspot.”

“Superstore” and “Telenovela” (formerly “Hot & Bothered”) will bow in their regular 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. timeslots, respectively, on Jan. 4, taking one of the hours currently occupied by the fall edition of “The Voice.” NBC hasn’t aired Monday comedies in a while, but saw an opening here when CBS abandoned comedies in the hour for “Supergirl.”

In addition to the additional exposure the comedies will receive by airing behind “The Voice,” NBC will also be able to promote these shows during upcoming special events, including the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Thanksgiving night NFL game as well as “The Wiz Live!’ on Dec. 3.

The comedy premieres are the second midseason move announced by NBC. The network said last week that new cop drama “Shades of Blue,” starring Jennifer Lopez, will bow on Thursday, Jan. 14 with a two-hour premiere at 9 p.m. and slide into its regular 10 p.m. timeslot one week later.
