Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone comes to CBS’ reworked fall schedule alongside SEAL Team, BBC’s Ghosts, and reality TV shows.
Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone is saddling up for its broadcast debut after joining CBS‘ fall schedule. The upcoming slate features a handful of notable series and reality-based programs, including SEAL Team and BBC’s Ghosts. The reworked plan is a product of the ongoing strike, which finds writers and actors picketing in front of major studios worldwide.
Concerning how CBS roped Yellowstone onto its schedule, whispers indicate the arrangement could have come from MTV Studios, which produces with 101 Studios. The first season of Yellowstone airs on Sundays, replacing The Equalizer at 9 p.m. The reworked schedule also hosts SEAL Team, the hit military drama starring David Boreanaz. SEAL Team slips into the Thursday 10 p.m. slot, a spot initially reserved for the new series Elsbeth, a spinoff of The Good Wife/The Good Fight. The Paramount+ docuseries FBI True also comes to the lineup alongside repeat episodes of FBI. Meanwhile, Evil comes to the network on Mondays at 10 p.m.
CBS is also getting haunted by a hit show from across the pond. BBC’s Ghosts is floating over to the network and will air between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Thursdays, promptly after repeats of the U.S. version. The BBC version of Ghosts focuses on a group of spirits restlessly squabbling in an abandoned country house. To their despair, a young couple inherits the house with hopeful plans to renovate it into a luxury hotel. Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe star, while Lolly Adefope, Matthew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard, Ben Willbond, and Katy Wix act as ghosts.
Reality TV makes up a portion of the reworked fall schedule too. Survivor and The Amazing Race join the lineup, with Loteria Loca, Raid the Cage, and a series based on Josh Duhamel’s Buddy Games ready to occupy the spooky season. Loteria Loca airs at 8 p.m. on Mondays, replacing The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola. Raid The Cage claims 9 p.m. on Fridays, where Fire Country would have aired, and Buddy Games is making its way to 9 p.m. on Thursdays instead of So Help Me Todd.
Finally, 60 Minutes is getting extended 90-minute presentations on planned Sundays. Sports will also be a part of the lineup.
We’re living in interesting times as networks adjust to the ongoing strike. How long networks will need to compensate for the stalled negotiations remains uncertain. Here’s hoping for a swift resolution in the weeks to come.
