NBC raises curtain on fall premiere dates as broadcast's #1 network launches its 2019-20 season


Mon, Jun 17th 2019 11:00 pm

New series ‘Bluff City Law,’ ‘Perfect Harmony’ and ‘Sunnyside’ added to lineup of award-winning comedies, dramas & alternative programming

As it closes in on a sixth consecutive September-to-September win in the 18-49 demo, NBC has unveiled premiere dates for the 2019-20 season that features two innovative new Thursday comedies and an inspiring new Monday legal family drama starring TV icon Jimmy Smits.

The three freshman shows are novel additions to a stable lineup that includes the four-time Emmy Award-winning music competition series “The Voice”; cultural phenomenon “This Is Us”; first-year sensation “New Amsterdam”; a power-packed Wednesday lineup of “Chicago” dramas that each just delivered their most-watched seasons ever; and beloved Thursday comedy favorites “Superstore” and “The Good Place” – the latter of which is set to begin its victory lap in this, its final season.

Premiere dates for NBC’s new midseason series – dramas “Council of Dads,” “Lincoln” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” and comedies “Indebted” and “The Kenan Show” – will be announced later.

The No. 1 show in primetime, “Sunday Night Football,” kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 5 (8:20 p.m. ET/PT), when the Green Bay Packers head to Chicago to face the Bears.
