NBC is the latest broadcast network to unveil its midseason game plan, and it features the return of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Tina Fey — but not, surprisingly, New Amsterdam or Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Also MIA: Season 4 of Good Girls, Season 3 of Manifest and the launch of the Chris Meloni-fronted Law & Order: Organized Crime.

After spending its freshman run on Sunday night, Zoey’s Playlist will shift to Tuesdays-at-8-pm, beginning Jan. 5 (where the musical comedy’s second season will lead into This Is Us). Newly-acquired Canadian import Nurses — which will launch on Mondays beginning Dec. 7 — will move to Tuesdays-at-10 pm, also beginning Jan. 5.

Meanwhile, the new Fey-produced comedy Mr. Mayor — starring Ted Danson and Holly Hunter — will lead off Thursday’s comedy block beginning Thursday, Jan. 7.

Elsewhere, 2021 will usher in new seasons of Ellen’s Game of Games and The Wall.
