NBC has firmed up its January lineup and has set premiere dates for new Tina Fey-Robert Carlock comedy series Mr. Mayor, starring Ted Danson, and for Season 2 of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.
Mr. Mayor will take over the 8 p.m. anchor slot in NBC’s Thursday comedy block starting January 7, with Superstore sliding to 8:30 p.m.
Ellen’s Game of Games will once again serve as a bridge between the two cycles of The Voice but, instead of Tuesday, it will be filling in for The Voice on Monday. The Tuesday 8 p.m. slot goes to Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, whose first season aired on Sundays. It will now serve as a lead-in to NBC’s flagship drama This Is Us starting on January 5, when Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist will launch its second season and This Is Us will return with originals.
As previously announced, NBC continues to keep New Amsterdam‘s slot warm with another imported medical drama, Nurses, which will succeed Transplant in the Tuesday 10 p.m. slot.
Along with New Amsterdam, MIA is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which had scrapped the original plans for this coming season and started from scratch following the George Floyd protests.
With football running into January, NBC has not announced its post-Sunday Night Football scheduling yet.
