While time slots in the DVR era may seem like a relic from another period, they're still a vital part of the TV economy for the five broadcast networks that rely on ad dollars to survive.

This past week, ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW presented their lineups for the 2018-19 season to Madison Avenue ad buyers with the hopes that their new comedies and dramas can cut through a schedule filled with big swings, returning favorites and, yes, a bunch of reboots.

NBC set an all Chicago night on Wednesdays, moving veteran Law & Order: SVU to the prestigious Thursdays at 10 p.m. slot formerly occupied by ER.

CBS positioned its revived Murphy Brown to anchor Thursdays after three back-to-back Chuck Lorre comedies.

ABC, which saw Shonda Rhimes move to Netflix, is maintaining the producer's "TGIT" lineup Thursdays.

Not to be outdone, Greg Berlanti — who this season set a TV record with 14 live-action scripted series in the works — has not one, not two but three nights of programming on The CW, where he produces seven of the network's 12 hours of originals.

Over at Fox, the network paved the way for 30-plus hours of Thursday Night Football on its schedule while still maintaining its one-two Lee Daniels punch of Empire and Star on Wednesdays.

Here's a look at the final fall schedule for 2018-19, with formal premiere dates to be announced in the coming months. (Keep track of all new and returning show debut dates with THR's handy guide.)
