Within the 2017-2018 season, CBS had three reboots on its schedule: MacGyver, Hawaii 5-O, and S.W.A.T., and that’s not even contemplating the brand new Star Trek collection they launched on CBS All Entry. Not solely are all of these again, they’re being joined by much more reboots, being added to a schedule of exhibits which are totally on extraordinarily lengthy runs.
Magnum PI (9:00 pm Mondays) and Murphy Brown (9:30 pm Thursdays) are the official reboots. The previous is just about what you fondly bear in mind: Hawaii, Ferrari, confidently masculine lead (Jay Hernandez) who will most likely go on to seduce youthful girls in a beloved sitcom. The latter has Brown (Candace Bergen) anchoring a morning information present, in rivalry to her son, who’s anchoring a morning information present on a Fox Information parody.
Not a reboot, however a present that certain looks like one (and you’ll simply guess what present it might reboot), is FBI, from Regulation & Order maestro Dick Wolf, starring Missy Peregrym (Regulation & Order SVU), Jeremy Sisto (Regulation & Order) Connie Nielsen (Regulation & Order SVU), and Ebonee Noel (Regulation & Order SVU), and that could be as a result of initially Wolf meant it to be a spin-off for NBC.
Past that, CBS has two new sitcoms, The Neighborhood, starring Max Greenfield as a really good man in a really powerful neighborhood, and Pleased Collectively, a couple of suburban couple (Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West) who’ve a pop singer transfer into their suburban home taking over the eight:00 pm-9:00 pm Monday block, and the hourlong dramedy God Friended Me (eight:00 pm Sundays), about an atheist who will get friended by God and finds himself stumbling into enhancing the lives of the individuals round him, type of like Touched By An Angel — if the angel in query simply informed you what to do through Messenger.
If that doesn’t sound like numerous exhibits, and regardless of CBS utterly reconfiguring its Monday schedule, it isn’t. That’s as a result of CBS has stored nearly all the things. Along with the three reboots above, it renewed nearly all the things that wasn’t on Mondays and that wasn’t a sitcom, though Matt LeBlanc’s Man With A Plan survived the comedy purge. A good chunk of the community’s programming, like NCIS (itself a by-product of the ’90s authorized drama JAG), Survivor, Felony Minds, and The Large Bang Idea have been on for greater than a decade, and Blue Bloods will cross the last decade mark this 12 months.
To be honest, it really works: CBS and NBC fought it out for primary final 12 months, and it’s telling that NBC is leaning into comedy more durable proper as CBS has largely determined to go for hour-long dramas in varied varieties. However each TV present goes off the air sooner or later, even when just for a bit of time to let one other community reboot it, and one has to surprise how CBS will method this downside when it comes up. However for this 12 months, at the least, it could lean on its long-runners.
