This one is a bit weird, folks.
Because it is never too early to start planning your viewing for the fall TV season (and get a jump on any new DVR conflicts), TVLine has compiled a day-by-day, hour-by-hour grid of the primetime schedules for each of the five broadcast networks.
Of course, in these pandemic-ified times, “fall” is the vaguest of terms. The safety protocols for starting production back up on TV shows have only recently been put forth for consideration (and ratification by unions), so save for a few bold and beautiful souls, no one has yet committed to a back-to-work date (traditionally late June to mid-July for fall shows).
But in an ideal world, this grid represents what each network will be airing at some point, in each time slot. As well reported, Fox and The CW opted for pandemic-proof schedules that rely on already-produced or acquired content, whereas ABC, CBS and NBC are aiming for some version of “business as usual,” eventually.
• NEW/’NEW’ programming for the 2020-21 season is in RED.
• MIDSEASON/2021 LAUNCHES are listed beneath the grid.
