Roswell, New Mexico is getting the best launching pad the network has to offer behind The Flash.

It will bow Tuesday, January 15 in the 9/8c slot. Former time-period occupant, Black Lightning will make a move to Mondays out of Arrow effective January 21. 

This move also means that DC's Legends of Tomorrow will be bumped from the schedule following its fall finale until April.

The Monday move might spell good news for Black Lightning which has experienced the dreaded sophomore slump in the ratings department this year. 

Black Lightning Season 2 is off over 30 percent in the demo year-to-year and is averaging a 0.4 rating.
