CBS Sets Fall Premiere Dates for 2019-2020 Season

CBS has announced the premiere dates for its fall 2019-2020 shows, including new additions “Bob Hearts Abishola,” “All Rise,” “The Unicorn,” “Carol’s Second Act” and “Evil.”

All five new shows will premiere the week of Sept. 23, with comedy “Bob Hearts Abishola” and Simone Missick courtroom drama “All Rise” on Mondays, and the other three shows lining up on Thursdays.

With its biggest show “The Big Bang Theory” no longer on the schedule after concluding its 12-year run, CBS has moved the series’ spinoff “Young Sheldon” to the Thursday 8 p.m. slot, leading in to the Walton Goggins single-cam “The Unicorn.”

Also worth nothing is the premiere date for the sixth and final season of “Madam Secretary,” which CBS has set for October 6.

Check out CBS’ full fall lineup below.
