Fall TV 2017: The Full Broadcast Schedule

'This Is Us,' 'Gotham,' 'Empire' and 'Once Upon a Time,' among others, are on the move as the Big Five preach stability while still taking some big swings.

Following a 2016-17 broadcast season that featured scheduling moves every night of the week, the five broadcast networks touted stability, with a greater number of returning shows as part of their 2017-18 schedules.

That isn't to say that there weren't some big-swing moves. Among the key shifts, NBC moved breakout This Is Us to Thursdays as part of its revived "Must-See TV" lineup. Fox bumped up Empire to open Wednesdays to use it as a launchpad for fellow Lee Daniels music drama Star, creating a night of "Must Lee TV," while also moving Batman origin story Gotham to Thursdays at 8 p.m. ABC created a night of genre programming on Fridays with Once Upon a Time leading into Marvel fare. CBS, as usual, had few changes outside of moving a couple returning shows back an hour or two. And The CW transported Arrow into the fierce Thursdays at 9 p.m. position opposite the final season of Scandal and This Is Us.

Here's a look at the final fall schedule for 2017-18, with formal premiere dates to be announced in the coming months. (Keep track of all new and returning show return dates with THR's handy guide.)
