Fall TV Preview

CBS Fall Premiere Dates: Supergirl Gets Big October Launch

CBS Premiere Dates

CBS is first out of the gate this year in detailing its premiere plan for the 2015-16 TV season, and the network once again kicks things off with Thursday Night Football on Sept. 17.

But the big news is the Eye’s decision to launch Supergirl after The Big Bang Theory in late October. Greg Berlanti’s anticipated drama will debut on Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30/7:30c after an original episode of Big Bang. It will then move into its regular Monday-at-8/7c slot on Nov. 2.

Elsewhere, CSI’s two-hour series finale will air Sunday, Sept. 27, the Eye’s post-football Thursday line-up (Big Bang, Life in Pieces, Mom, Angel From Hell, Elementary) returns Nov. 5 — a week later than last year.

On deck for midseason: Returning shows Person of Interest, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Undercover Boss and The Odd Couple, and new dramas Rush Hour and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.
