CBS Adds New Shows for Mondays, Thursdays


ADVERTISEMENT

With The Big Bang Theory coming to an end, CBS has shuffled its Thursday night schedule, which will lead with Young Sheldon this fall and feature three new shows.

Mondays feature two established hits, The Neighborhood and Bull, bracketing newcomers. The new Chuck Lorre series Bob ♥ Abishola lands at 8:30, followed by the freshman courthouse drama All Rise.

Tuesday’s lineup remains intact, with NCIS opening the night, followed by FBI and NCIS: New Orleans.

Survivor continues to lead off Wednesdays at 8 p.m., again paired with SEAL Team. S.W.A.T. moves to 10 p.m. on its new night.

Young Sheldon moves into the 8 p.m. slot on Thursdays, giving a lead-in for the new comedy The Unicorn, starring Walton Goggins. Mom returns at 9 p.m., paired with the new Patricia Heaton vehicle Carol’s Second Act and the psychological mystery Evil from Michelle and Robert King.

On Fridays this fall, Hawaii Five-0 moves to open the night at 8 p.m., leading into Magnum P.I. in its new slot. Blue Bloods continues to close out the night.

Crimetime Saturdays continue, followed by 48 Hours.

The Sunday schedule remains unchanged, with 60 Minutes, God Friended Me, NCIS: Los Angeles and Madam Secretary.

New shows debuting later in the season include the dramas FBI: Most Wanted, from producer Dick Wolf and starring Julian McMahon, and Tommy, led by Emmy Award winner Edie Falco. Also coming midseason is the comedy Broke, from producer Jennie Snyder Urman and starring Jaime Camil and Pauley Perrette.

“Our new lineup features both classic CBS shows and genres that viewers love, as well as some new series that push the boundaries of what you might expect from us,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment. “We are also saving some very strong series for the second part of the year as part of a strategy to roll out new and returning series throughout the season.”

“This is a slate of new shows with thought-provoking stories, culturally relevant themes and tremendous casts, from award-winning producers and writers,” said Thom Sherman, senior executive VP of programming for CBS Entertainment. “We are also building on the diverse series we launched last season with more leading roles for women and more inclusive storytelling across all of our new comedies and dramas.”
