CBS Unveils March Madness Replacement Plan, Hawaii Five-0's Two-Hour Series Finale to Be Split

HAwaii Five-0 Final Season

CBS has announced the programming that will replace its coverage of the now-scrapped March Madness, and it includes reruns aplenty as well as a rejiggered game plan for Hawaii Five-0‘s series finale.

Originally scheduled to air as a two-hour farewell on Friday, April 3 at 9/8c, Five-0‘s sendoff will now be split up over two weeks. The first hour will air Friday, March 27 at 9/8c, and the concluding hour will air Friday, April 3 at 9/8c.

As a result of that tweak, CBS has now slotted a fresh Blue Bloods on Friday, April 3 at 10 pm (instead of being bumped by H50, as originally planned).

Meanwhile, CBS confirms that its daytime lineup — which traditionally is pre-empted during March Madness — will now air original episodes.

The NCAA announced on Thursday that it was scrapping the annual men’s college basketball tournament in light of the global coronavirus pandemic.
