LOS ANGELES (AP) — CBS said it plans a fall schedule that’s a close match to last season, but the network is keeping a watchful eye on when the industry will emerge from its virus-caused production shutdown.
The majority of the network’s returning shows will be back in the time slots they held in the 2019-20 season, with a few exceptions: “The Amazing Race” and “SEAL Team” are each shifting ahead an hour on Wednesday nights, as will “The Unicorn” on Thursdays.
The stable lineup reflects the ratings success of CBS, which has been the most-watched network for more than a decade.
“But at the end of the day, we really got to where we always like to be, which is a strong, stable schedule with the opportunity to launch some exciting new shows.”
If production delays leave CBS with unfilled time slots, Kahl said, the network can draw on content available to it as part of ViacomCBS.
