America’s Got Talent: All-Stars kicks off the new year with Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel judging some of the best contestants from its long-running reality series. It launches on Monday, January 2, through to the end of February. Then The Voice will replace it on March 6, with first-time coaches Chance the Rapper and Niall Horan joining Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton, who will exit after the season. Quantum Leap stays until 10 pm on Mondays.

Tuesday becomes largely a comedy night with the update of night courtstarring Melissa Rauch and John Larroquette, airing alongside the second season of American Auto starting January 24, before the final season of New Amsterdam.

Starting on Sunday, February 19, Magnum, PI airs at 9 pm after NBC saved it with a two-season, 20-episode order after it was canceled by CBS. Found airs at 10 pm, and the two shows will be preceded by the 10th season of The Blacklist starting February 26.

Wednesday remains Chicago night with Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD; Thursday continues as the night for law and order with Law & Order, Law & Order SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime; and Friday keeps Lopez vs. Lopez, YoungRock and Dateline NBC.

The second season of grand crewwhich aired on Tuesdays last midseason, is expected to return midseason, although a date has not been set.

game show The Wheel is also expected to be spun in midseason but has not been dated.

American Song Contest, which premiered in March, is not expected to return.

“We can’t wait to share these terrific new series with our audience,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Foundfrom Greg Berlanti and Nkechi Okoro Carroll, is a stellar addition to our drama lineup, while Magnum, PI comes to us with a passionate fanbase already in place that we intend to nourish. On the comedy side, having John Larroquette and Melissa Rauch co-star in an updated night court is a dream come true, and our critically acclaimed comedy American Auto is back with its hilarious and ironic look at corporate America. add AGT: All-Stars to that mix, and it’s a great start to the new year.”

Said Frances Berwick, Chairman of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming: “Following another winning fall, we’re looking forward to a great January and beyond with a strong schedule that delivers on the return of many favorites coupled with fantastic new premieres.
