NBC Sets Fall Premiere Dates for 2016-17 Season

NBC has set the premiere dates for its 2016-17 fall schedule, kicking off in mid-September. New shows debuting this fall include freshman drama “This Is Us”; time-travel thriller “Timeless” and Mike Schur comedy “The Good Place.”

“Sunday Night Football” kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 8 when the champion Denver Broncos host the Carolina Panthers (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT) in a Super Bowl rematch. Three days later on Sept. 11, the show travels to Arizona as the Cardinals play the New England Patriots (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT).

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.”
