Past CBS predictions: 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011
8:00 (Sep) The Big Bang Theory/(Oct) Kevin Can Wait
8:30 (Sep) YOUNG SHELDON/(Oct) 9J, 9K, & 9L
9:00 Man with a Plan
9:30 Life in Pieces
I'm leaning towards the belief that CBS will do what they did two years ago and move their entire 8pm hour from Monday to Thursday after football because I can't imagine they're going to want to wait until the end of October to launch Young Sheldon. So I think they'll do Big Bang and Young Sheldon in the fall and hope that they will help Man with a Plan and Life in Pieces. Then in October, I think they will bring Kevin Can Wait back and pair it with a new sitcom, perhaps 9J, 9K, & 9L.
10:00 UNTITLED NAVY SEALS PROJECT
I'm inclined to believe that CBS is not going to give a new drama the 9pm slot because they know Bull can survive against This is Us. I'm not too sold on a 10pm drama doing well but that is what I think they'll do, possibly with one of many military drama pilots this year - the Navy Seals project.
9:00 Criminal Minds
I think it's absolutely time to move Criminal Minds to 10pm but CBS never seems to want to do that. So I think it stays at 9pm and they launch S.W.A.T. starring Minds alum Shemar Moore at 10pm. Watch this be the year they finally do move Minds to 10pm.
(Sep) 8:00 Thursday Night Football
8:00 The Big Bang Theory
8:30 YOUNG SHELDON
9:00 Superior Donuts
10:00 NCIS: New Orleans
We know football is on for the first two months and CBS has had a hard time launching shows after football ends. So I think they'll be conservative this year and only bring Young Sheldon over from its Monday run. I think they'll give Superior Donuts a decent shot at getting more of an audience and be conservative at the end of the night with Mom and a transplanted NCIS: New Orleans.
9:00 Hawaii Five-0
10:00 Blue Bloods
I think Fridays will and should remain the same.
10:00 48 Hours
7:00 60 Minutes
8:00 NCIS: Los Angeles
10:00 Madam Secretary
I think CBS will try to liven up Sunday but not mess with NCIS: Los Angeles, which was a success airing out of football last fall. I think they'll try Instinct with Alan Cumming at 9pm and hope they can create an upscale block between that and Madam Secretary.
