CBS has revealed its fall 2020-2021 lineup, and it’s looking slightly different than the schedules previously released by The CW and FOX.
For starters, CBS doesn’t seem to be wavering in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic — it’s moving full-force ahead with slotting in scripted programming for the upcoming season.
The network is confidently banking on the return to production for many of its shows in time to get episodes filmed and edited by September.
Either they’re being very optimistic or they know something we don’t.
CBS added your favorite TV shows like NCIS, Survivor, Young Sheldon, All Rise, Mom and Blue Bloods to the schedule.
Other networks took precautions with their fall lineups offering fool-proof programming; FOX is betting heavily on the return of football and animated series while The CW has acquired rights to pre-produced shows that will take the place of their vast original programming. All FOX and The CW scripted dramas will premiere in 2021 as part of the midseason slate.
CBS pushed Silence of the Lambs sequel series Clarice to its midseason along with S.W.A.T. and Undercover Boss.

Coronavirus has impacted the TV industry in a massive way.
Due to stay-at-home orders, plenty of shows haven’t been able to finish out their intended season orders, and it’s proving difficult to plan a fall 2020-2021 schedule since it’s unclear when productions will be able to start filming again.
FOX, however, decided to go ahead and release its panned schedule even as they haven’t renewed all of their scripted programming. That’s because most of their scripted shows are being held until the spring 2021 season.
Much of the schedule hinges on the NFL season kicking off as scheduled, many animated series, and the upcoming season of The Masked Singer, which seems like less of an undertaking than any of the fully dramas.
Of course, there’s always room for things to change as so much is unknown about the pandemic.
