NBC has unveiled its new fall schedule, which will cut its Thursday night comedy block in half and eventually make room for its biggest freshman hit of this season, The Blacklist.

Although The Blacklist will keep its post-The Voice slot in the fall, it will eventually be replaced by the new Katherine Heigl-fronted drama State of Affairs on Nov. 17. The Blacklist, which will also get the post-Super Bowl slot next winter, will then move to Thursdays at 9/8c in February, where it will lead into freshman spy thriller Allegiance at 10/9c. (Allegiance will replace Parenthood, which will air a 13-episode final season this fall).
One of the casualties of NBC's Thursday comedy cutback is Parks and Recreation, which despite being renewed for a seventh and final season isn't currently scheduled. Instead, NBC will air an hour of The Biggest Loser at 8/7c, followed by freshman comedies Bad Judge and A to Z at 9/8c. Marry Me, another freshman comedy, will be paired with returning comedy About a Boy after The Voice's Tuesday edition.
