NBC has renewed this season's breakout drama hit "This Is Us" for two more seasons, and the network is shifting it to a key 9 p.m. ET/PT slot on Thursday night.
In addition, NBC will air it following the Super Bowl on Feb. 4.
A 12-episode revival of former hit comedy "Will & Grace", will also air on Thursdays. "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders", tracking the true story of Los Angeles brothers who killed their parents will follow "Will & Grace".
It's part of what NBC Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt on Sunday called an attempted "return of must-see TV" that night as a promotional hook.
Cancellations included "Grimm", spring comedy "Powerless", limited series "Emerald City" and short-lived spinoff "The Blacklist: Redemption".
Among other schedule changes, "The Blacklist" will shift to Wednesdays and "Blindspot" also will move to Fridays.
