Move made to accommodate President Obama's farewell speech

The changes were made because of the network's airing of President Barack Obama's farewell speech to the nation live at 9 p.m. ET.

Due to the president's address, NBC's lineup for the night is now set for the following in all time zones:

Eastern time zone

As William (Ron Cephas Jones) begins to spend more time with Jesse (Denis O'Hare), Randall (Sterling K. Brown) has to get used to his father's new relationship. After receiving the news they're expecting triplets, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) must find a way to afford a home that can accommodate three babies.
