With the new tax law enacted for 2018, all previous 1040 forms were eliminated and replaced by a new form 1040 and six new schedules 1-6. The new form 1040 is actually two half pages that TurboTax prints on 1 sheet. So you will see the bottom of p. 1 in the middles of the sheet. 

See this IRS Q&A for more details about the changes: https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/questions-and-answers-about-the-2018-form-1040
