CBS is the fourth broadcast network to reveal its midseason schedule (following ABC, Fox and NBC), which features the RuPaul-hosted game show Lingo and a series reboot of James Cameron’s 1994 action-comedy True Lies.
The “supercharged adaptation” of Lingo — a word-based game show that last aired Stateside in the early 2000s on Game Show Network — will arrive Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 9/8c, where it will be sandwiched between new episodes of The Price Is Right at Night and Tough as Nails Season 4.
Come March, the Wednesday night lineup will see the return of Survivor (entering its 44th season) and the aforementioned True Lies, which swaps Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis for Steve Howey (Shameless) and Ginger Gonzaga (She-Hulk: Attorney at Law). The remake will get a special Thursday showcase on Feb. 23, airing behind new episodes of TV’s top-rated comedies Young Sheldon and Ghosts, before it makes its Wednesdays-at-10 pm debut on March 1.
As previously reported, the Eye network will stage the first-ever, three-way crossover between NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i and NCIS: Los Angeles on Monday, Jan. 2; a special episode of freshman hit Fire Country will follow the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 29; and the 65th annual Grammy Awards will air Sunday, Feb. 5.
Missing from the midseason roster is the winter premiere of The Equalizer. A network insider tells TVLine that a return date will be announced at a later time.
