CBS announces full fall prime-time schedule
Get your DVRs ready: CBS has kickstarted the 2019-20 TV season by announcing its fall premiere schedule.
Five new shows and 15 returning ones will air on the network in the new season, which starts Monday, Sept. 23. On that night, The Neighborhood and Bull will be joined by newcomers Bob ♥ Abishola (Chuck Lorre’s latest comedy) and All Rise (a courtroom drama).
Thursdays will be a big night for the network: The Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon and the Allison Janney and Anna Faris starrer Mom will be the only returning shows, in the 8 and 9 p.m. slots, respectively. Those shows will be joined by the series debuts of the Walton Goggins comedy The Unicorn, Carol’s Second Act starring Patricia Heaton, and Evil, a supernatural drama from The Good Fight creators Michelle and Robert King.
Hawaii Five-O, Magnum P.I., and Blue Bloods will round out the week Friday, Sept. 27. The weekend schedule includes Crimetime Saturday and 48 Hours on Saturday, and 60 Minutes, God Friended Me, and NCIS: Los Angeles after a football doubleheader that Sunday.
All but three returning series will debut their new seasons during the premiere week. SEAL Team and SWAT open the next week, on Oct. 2, while Madam Secretary will start its final season Sunday, Oct. 6.
