Criminal Minds Spinoff Date

CBS has released its midseason schedule for the 2015-16 TV season, and it includes the Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders spinoff, a Wednesday comedy block featuring Max, Caroline, Mike and Molly, and fresh Undercover subterfuge.

Undercover Boss will kick off Season 7 with three successive Sunday outings (airing Dec. 20, Dec. 27 and Jan. 3), before moving back to its Fridays-at-8 perch on Jan. 8. It will hang there until the new edition of The Amazing Race gets running on Feb. 12.

Mike & Molly will open its 13-episode Season 6 on Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 8:30 pm, where it will form a new comedy block with 2 Broke Girls. That sitcombo will occupy the 8 o’clock hour until Survivor Season 32 arrives on Feb. 17.

Taking 2 Broke Girls‘ place on Thursday will be Angel From Hell, a new comedy starring Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson (premiering Jan. 7 at 9;30). Season 2 of The Odd Couple joins the Thursday lineup on April 7, replacing Life in Pieces in the apres-Big Bang spot.

Last but not least, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders — starring Gary Sinise (CSI: NY), Alana De La Garza (Forever), Daniel Henney (Hawaii Five-0), Tyler James Williams (The Walking Dead) and Annie Funke — will bow Wednesday, March 2 at 10 pm, leading out of the mothership series after Code Black closes its freshman run on Feb. 24.
