TVLine has learned exclusively that even though CBS’ FBI and the spinoffs FBI: International and FBI: Most Wanted will all be preempted on Tuesday, Nov. 8 by Election Night news coverage, fans of the mothership series will still get a new episode earlier that week, on Sunday, Nov. 6.

The original FBI, after all, has an “extra” episode in inventory, since it aired its postponed Season 4 finale a few weeks into the current season.

As such, CBS’ lineup for Sunday, Nov. 6 will be as follows:
To 7:30 pm ET: NFL overrun
7:30 pm ET / 7 pm PT: 60 Minutes (original episode)
8:30 pm ET / 8 pm PT: FBI (original episode)
9:30 pm ET / 9 pm PT: East New York (original episode)
10:30 pm ET / 10 pm PT: NCIS: Los Angeles (original episode)

In FBI‘s special Sunday outing, which is titled “Double Bind,” when the team works to rescue a 5-year-old kidnapping victim, Scola (played by John Boyd) suspects the boy’s mother isn’t being forthcoming about why her son was targeted. Also, Nina (Shantel VanSanten) struggles to open up to Scola about matters in their relationship.
