NBC has announced its Fall 2014 schedule, which includes surprisingly few changes. But the network has big plans for mid-season, with The Blacklist moving to Thursday nights after getting a high-profile post-Super Bowl episode airing.

The Blacklist will return Monday nights at 10pm in the fall, but will go on a hiatus starting November 17, when Katherine Heigl’s State of Affairs will inherit the coveted time slot. The Blacklist will then air after the Super Bowl before moving to Thursdays at 9pm on February 5. At that time, the new drama Allegiance will follow it at 10pm.
