CBS midseason dates: Here's when 'Survivor' returns

Posted on

CBS

CBS released its midseason premiere dates for 2016 and it’s most remarkable for how few changes are on it. The network has a relatively stable schedule this year, with new shows like Limitless, Supergirl, and Life in Pieces getting full season orders. Still, there are a few nuggets of interest, such as the premiere date of the spring edition of Survivor — rolling out an incredible 32nd edition. In a season in which so many shows are struggling, Survivor has looked stronger than usual by comparison (despite having its own steady viewer erosion over the years). In March, the latest Criminal Minds spin-off attempt, Beyond Borders, which brings Gary Sinise back to the network, will premiere. And in April, the second season of The Odd Couple will get a lead-in from The Big Bang Theory.

We’re told the return of Person of Interest and the series premiere of new cop comedy Rush Hour will be announced at a later date.
