The label was most closely associated with NBC at the height of its ratings domination in the '80s and '90s. And the network is making another hard push to recapture the "Must See TV" glory of Thursday nights.

For its return, NBC has slotted its "Will & Grace" revival to start the night.

"This Is Us is peerless at the moment and we made a decision to move it to Thursday nights and not just throw it there and hope for the best but strategically to surround it with shows that are really strong", said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, on a conference call with reporters on Sunday morning. "If there's a younger audience that's never heard of that, doesn't know what that is and has never heard of it, then its not a retread". A special edition of the show will air after the Super Bowl, on February 4, 2018.

Given the new Thursday timeslot, there will be interruptions to the "This Is Us" schedule for National Football League games. "We're going to try to lead the audience".

"There's a little bit of an on-again/off-again, but I think we've got some ideas we're talking about to keep the show alive even when there aren't episodes on the air", he said.

The network announced its schedule Sunday, kicking off the annual week where broadcasters outline next season's plans to advertisers.

Venezuela hopes no country hinders China's 'fantastic' Silk Road initiative
Since its launching, the Belt and Road Initiative has received warm responses and support from the worldwide community. Other leaders at the gathering included Premier Paolo Gentiloni of Italy and President Michelle Bachelet of Chile.

Though the network is adding five new dramas and three new comedies to its lineup, much of its fall schedule is anchored by veteran shows.

Touting it as a "new powerhouse lineup", This Is Us will premiere in its new Thursday at 9 p.m. time slot in the fall, with NBC opening the night at 8 p.m. with the highly anticipated 12-episode return of Will & Grace, followed by the return of Great News (expect a few Tina Fey cameos!). Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Brothers closes out the night at 10 p.m.

Among the series expected in midseason is "Timeless", which was initially part of NBC's freshman casualties but brought back from death over the weekend after an outcry from fans.

McGirt, Hughes tied for lead at Players Championship
