'NCIS: New Orleans' Is Leaving Tuesday Nights to Make Room for 'FBI: Most Wanted'
Replacing "NCIS: New Orleans," the Tuesday 10 PM slot on CBS has been claimed by "FBI" spinoff "FBI: Most Wanted."
CBS has finally unveiled its early midseason schedule and there are a ton of things to look forward to.
This season, fans will get to witness two new drama series additions--"FBI: Most Wanted" and "Tommy"--including the 15th and final season of "Criminal Minds."
"MacGyver" will also be back with its fourth season. Additionally, CBS has also fixed a premiere date in February for the 40th season of "Survivor."
Meanwhile, there is no scheduling news for some series including "Broke," "Man with a Plan," and "The Amazing Race" yet.
NEW TIMING FOR "NCIS: NEW ORLEANS"
"FBI: Most Wanted" is premiering on January 7 and will air every Tuesday at 10 PM on CBS. Meanwhile, the sixth season of "NCIS: New Orleans" will move to Sunday 10 PM time.
Sunday's 10 PM slot would be empty after the sixth season of "Madam Secretary" ends, but now "NCIS: New Orleans" will fill the space.
The hit crime series will make its Sunday debut on February 16. The show is preceded by "NCIS: Los Angeles" which airs on Sundays at 9 PM.
"NCIS: New Orleans" isn't the only show that will see a major time shift this year. Comedy series "Last Man Standing" will also shift from Fridays to Thursdays in 2020.
OTHER MAJOR CHANGES
On January 8, "Undercover Boss" will air like a bridge program between two cycles of "Survivor." The series will debut its 40th season with a special two-hour episode on February 12.
Meanwhile, "Criminal Minds" will temporarily replace "SEAL Team" with its final run. The crime drama will end its run with a two-hour episode on February 19.
CBS will continue its Friday lineup of the last three seasons of "MacGyver," "Hawaii Five-0," and "Blue Bloods" at 8, 9, and 10 PM respectively.
Another reality show, "Undercover Boss," will air on January 8 at 8 PM. "Magnum PI" will vacant its 9 PM slot to make room for "MacGyver." Once "MacGyver" finishes the season, "Magnum PI" will return with the remainder of its episodes.
