S.W.A.T., CBS’ reboot of the classic ’70s series, has been given a full season order – while Mark Feuerstein’s 9JKL has been given an order for three more episodes.
CBS is tweaking its schedule, setting the season two premiere of Man with a Plan for Monday, November 13th (8:30/7:30C); bumping 9JKL to Mondays (9:30/8:30C) beginning November 6th, and taking Me, Myself & I off the schedule.
The revised CBS Monday night schedule follows.
CBS’ new comedy (and I use that word advisedly) 9JKL (Mondays, 8:30/7:30C) is the ongoing tale of an actor, Josh Roberts (Mark Feuerstein, Royal Pains) whose show gets canceled and he loses all his money in a divorce – meaning he has to return to New York City and live in the apartment next door to his parents.
Compared to the series premiere of 9JKL, 2 Broke Girls (another CBS comedy – waddaya know?) took place in a convent!
CBS has released the trailers for its six new shows for Fall 2017-18: Wisdom of the Crowd, SEAL Team, young Sheldon, Me MYSELF & I, 9JKL and S.W.A.T. in a six trailer playlist.
The 2016-7 CBS Fall Schedule is a classic example of not breaking what’s working. The network has kept its schedule pretty much intact.
Big Bang spinoff Young Sheldon will be paired with its mothership series on Thursday (after Thursday Night Football runs its course) with a special premiere behind the season opener of Big Bang on Monday.
