CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) Announces Its 2015-2016 Primetime Lineup

CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) revealed its 2015-2016 primetime TV show line up which includes 2 new TV shows together with a return of 22 other previously aired shows.

The network has included improvement plans on its lineup schedule to maintain its status as the most watched TV network in America as the season comes to an end. The company has won the crown for the leading status 12 times within 13 years. In those 12 times, it has retained its position 7 times in a row until now.

The company opens the list with a list of summer dramas which include: LIMITLESS which is based on a Bradley Cooper movie with the same title; SUPERGIRL, a series based on one of DC’s superhero characters; and CODE BLACK which is a medical series which is focused on emergency room drama.

The list will also concentrate on various shows inclined towards the comedy genre. It will include series such as: LIFE IN PIECES, which is a family oriented show focusing on hilarious aspects of family life; And ANGEL FROM HELL, a rather unorthodox show about a woman with inappropriate traits who glorifies herself as a guardian angel.

The two new shows scheduled to premiere in 2015-2016 are Rush Hour and Criminal Minds: Beyond Boarders. The two sound very familiar by right. That is because they are spinoffs of previous franchises. RUSH HOUR will be a series based on the wildly successful Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker movie though it will not feature the two original actors.

CRIMINAL MINDS: BEYOND BOARDERS is a spinoff of the original show, Criminal Minds. The other 22 returning series include; The Good Wife, Madam Secretary, Ncis: New Orleans, Ncis: Los Ageles, Person Of Interest, Hawaii 5.0, Criminal Minds, Csi: Cyber Elementary, Blue Bloods, comedies like The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Moly, The Odd Couple And Mom.

Some reality series making a comeback include; The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, and Survivor. A new other additions will be included in the primetime list, such as the NFL Thursday Night Football which will also be making a comeback.
