CBS' Fall Schedule Announced, Includes Supergirl, Big Bang Theory And More

In releasing its planned fall schedule, CBS is giving audiences a chance to get ready for a handful of new series, as well as a long list of returning favorites. Having some of TV’s highest-rated comedies and dramas will certainly help CBS out in bringing their new series a bunch of viewers.

Saying goodbye to shows like Battle Creek and The McCarthys allows CBS the opportunity to present audiences with the highly anticipated return to primetime for Supergirl, developed by Arrow’s Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Ali Adler. The network continues its tradition of mostly narrative-driven series, with Survivor and Thursday Night Football leading the unscripted ranks, and we’ll one day see just what’ll happen with The Big Bang Theory’s cliffhanger finale.

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
