CBS is like a Swiss clock. The network does everything exactly the right
way every time and can always be trusted to deliver. It has more crime
procedurals than any other network, more laugh-track, multi-camera
comedies than any other network and more hits than any other network.
Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.
And now it has a more simplified fall premiere calendar than any other network. While FOX, NBC, ABC and the CW slowly roll out their fall shows over several weeks, CBS takes a simple, shotgun approach. There are 22 shows premiering in a single week starting on Monday, September 24. The only show on CBS not debuting that week is the latest season of Survivor
, which begins one week earlier.
This is how it should be done. Take everything you have, launch it in a single week and don't confuse your audience too much by changing everything around, having shows get sneak peeks on different nights and all the other maddening tricks CBS' rivals try.
