NBC To Keep 'This is Us' On Tuesdays

NBCUniversal

This Is Us was NBC's break out hit of 2016.

NBC in the United States has rowed back on its decision to move hit drama This Is Us to Thursday nights by confirming the show will retain its Tuesday slot for its second season.

The 9 p.m. block on Tuesdays was originally going to be filled by Superstore and The Good Place, with Chicago Fire to follow at 10 p.m.

The move had been the centerpiece of NBC's plan, announced just two weeks ago, to create a schedule that echoed its "must-see TV" Thursday nights of two decades ago.

Barcelona appoint Ernesto Valverde as new manager
Valverde also masterminded a memorable 5-1 victory over Barcelona in the Supercopa de Espana in 2015. As a coach Valverde has a wealth of experience in Spain and overseas .

Shifting series so early in their runs can be risky, and NBC will nurture the time-hopping family drama rather than test its ratings strength on a new night. Thursdays. The return of "Will & Grace" will shift to that time slot. Do you think NBC did the right thing?

"We went back and forth about [moving This Is Us to Thursday]". NBC has also made a decision to move its Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders to Tuesdays at 10 p.m.so that it may air behind This Is Us as originally planned.

Meanwhile, keeping This Is Us on Tuesday nights also means that the show won't have to compete with ABC's killer Thursday night lineup of Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder, or CBS' highly rated Thursday night comedies The Big Bang Theory, Mom and Life in Pieces.
