'This is Us' Moves to Thursdays, Scores Post-Super Bowl Spot

'This is Us' Moves to Thursdays, Scores Post-Super Bowl Spot

This Is Us will premiere on a new night next season.

NBC just announced that the hit drama will move from Tuesdays to Thursdays this fall.

The network has had some trouble finding a “must-see” show to fill that primetime slot, so the move isn’t a surprising one.

“We really want it to happen organically, but I think it’s as close to Must-See TV as we’ve ever had in our history,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told THR. “We’re going to try to lead the audience.”

This Is Us is also the lead choice for that big post-Super Bowl spot for 2018.

The show will be followed on Thursdays by the Will & Grace reboot, Great News, and Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.
