Fall TV Preview

CBS Fall Schedule Banks on 20 Returning Favorites; Clarice and S.W.A.T. on Hold for Midseason

CBS Fall Schedule 2020

CBS is the latest broadcast network (following Fox and The CW) to unveil its coronavirus-delayed game plan for the 2020-21 TV season, and it appears the Eye network is taking a business-as-usual approach 

♦ Although CBS is not saying when exactly its new season will launch, the mere fact that its very stable new schedule is being billed as a “fall” lineup suggests execs have a somewhat optimistic timetable in mind for restarting production.

♦ The long-delayed new season of The Amazing Race will follow Survivor on Wednesdays, bumping S.W.A.T. to midseason.

♦ Chuck Lorre’s new sitcom B Positive has scored Thursday’s post-Young Sheldon perch, sending The Unicorn to 9:30.

♦ The Queen Latifah-headlined Equalizer reboot will follow 60 Minutes on Sundays, replacing the cancelled God Friended Me.

♦ New Silence of the Lambs sequel series Clarice is being held for midseason.
