Keep your Thursday nights free this fall.
NBC is reviving “must-see TV” Thursdays with the arrival of the “Will and Grace” reboot and the move of the overwhelmingly successful “This is Us.”
The network will pair the revived sitcom, starring Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally, with the second season of the Tina Fey-produced “Great News,” which stars Briga Heelen, Andrea Martin, Adam Campbell, Nicole Richie and John Michael Higgins.
“Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders,” from Dick Wolf, will round out the night.
The phrase “must-see TV” was most recognizable as NBC’s strong lineup of shows in the 1980s and 1990s including “Cheers,” “Friends,” “Seinfeld,” “Hill Street Blues,” “L.A. Law” and “ER.”
The reign ended in the fall of 2013 when NBC canceled or ended nine of its 11 comedies, including hits like “30 Rock” and “The Office.” Fill-ins like “The Michael J. Fox Show,” “Welcome to the Family” and “Sean Saves the World” failed almost immediately.
Now, the network is trying again.
