CBS Announces its 2016-2017 Primetime Schedule

cbs logo

CBS is the fourth network to unveil its 2016-2017 primetime schedule during Upfronts week (see NBCFox and ABC’s new schedules).

CBS renewed a lot of their existing shows, which doesn’t leave many holes in their schedule. As a result, the network only ordered 8 new pilots. Like Fox, CBS is bringing some familiar properties to TV, including a reboot of MACGYVER and producing a small screen version of the film TRAINING DAY. You’ll also be seeing some familiar faces on the network this fall/winter, including Joel McHale (THE GREAT INDOORS), Matt Leblanc (MAN WITH A PLAN) and Katherine Heigl (DOUBT).

There’s also a few changes in the upcoming schedule, including NCIS: LOS ANGELES moving to Sundays and MADAM SECRETARY moving to the 9:00 p.m. spot formerly held by THE GOOD WIFE.

There’s also no word yet on LIMITLESS, but apparently CBS is shopping around for a new home for the show.
