Following in the footsteps of Fox, ABC, and Turner, CBS has unveiled its 2017-2018 primetime lineup, featuring four new comedies, four new dramas and 23 returning series. The new series join a lineup that will finish the current season as America’s most watched network in viewers for the 14th time in 15 years, including the last nine years straight.
The new fall dramas are:
- Seal Team, a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous missions, starring David Boreanaz; look for it Wednesday nights at 9:00pm.
- S.W.A.T., inspired by the television series and feature film, starring Shemar Moore as a S.W.A.T. sergeant in Los Angeles; it’ll arrive early this November on Thursday nights at 10:00pm.
- Wisdom of the Crowd, starring Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Jeremy Piven as a visionary tech innovator who creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter’s murder; look for it Sundays at 8:00pm.
The new fall comedies include the highly anticipated Young Sheldon, about 9-year-old genius Sheldon Cooper growing up in East Texas. It’ll debut after the season premiere of The Big Bang Theory on Monday, September 25th before relocating to its regular time period Thursday, November 2nd at 8:30pm.
Two new series also set to premiere later in the 2017-2018 season are: By the Book, a comedy about a modern day man who decides to live his life strictly by the Bible, and Instinct, a drama starring Alan Cumming as a gifted author, university professor and former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life by the NYPD when they need his help to stop a serial killer.
