The annual network upfront presentations continue today in New York City, with CBS set to preview several new and returning shows. In advance of the actual presentation, this morning CBS released their fall program schedule and it includes three new dramas and three new comedies.
Monday nights will continue to be anchored by sitcom Kevin Can Wait at 8/7c and Scorpion at 10/9c, with returning show Superior Donuts holding down the 9:30/8:30c spot.
Two new comedies will join the line-up, though: 9JKL will follow Kevin Can Wait at 8:30/7:30c and Me, Myself, and I will take the 9/8c timeslot.
9JKL stars Mark Feuerstein as a divorced actor who moves into a New York apartment surrounded by his parents on one side and his brother’s family on the other.
Saturday Night Live‘s Bobby Moynihan stars in Me, Myself, and I, a show featuring the same character in three different time periods: a ten-year-old in 1991, a 40-year-old in the present, and at age 65 in the year 2042.
Tuesdays remain untouched with NCIS at 8/7c and NCIS: New Orleans at 10/9c and Bull sandwiched in-between at 9/8c.
