Opinion From Campaign US: NBC announces only three new series for fall 2016

The immediate response to this lineup (pending the other network announcements, of course) could be that the broadcast networks are more concerned with a 12-month lineup than gutting the airwaves with the majority of new product in the fall

From Campaign US: “An embarrassment of riches” is how Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, described the network’s fall 2016 primetime schedule during a conference call prior to the official unveiling to advertisers on Monday. Others might just call it lazy.

Overall, NBC will introduce only three new shows this fall: dramas “Timeless” and “This is Us,” and sitcom “The Good Place.” Historically, this could very well be the fewest new series NBC has ever introduced in the fall. Last season there were five.

Four series (“Blindspot,” “Superstore,” “Chicago Med” and “The Blacklist”) are moving to new time periods. And only four nights of the week – Monday through Thursday – will feature changes. See the grid below for the specific times and the new fall show descriptions.
