CBS is choosing to release details on its 2018/19 mid-season schedule in piecemeal fashion this year, adding to speculation on the return dates for some dramas, including SEAL Team. (We’ll keep you updated on that score.)
Following yesterday’s non-scripted/reality schedule reveal yesterday, the network has since unveiled the comedy portion of its slate, filling in the blanks for Mondays and Thursdays over January and February 2019.
Mid-season will see new comedy, Fam taking over from Murphy Brown on Thursday, Jan. 10 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT). (We hear Murphy Brown won’t be returning for another season.) The series stars Nina Dobrev and Tone Bell in a comedy about a woman whose vision of a perfect life with her adoring fiancé and his wonderful parents is radically altered when her 16-year-old, out-of-control half-sister unexpectedly comes to live with her. As the family Clem (Dobrev) chose and the family she has blend, Clem realizes that this new happy fam may be the perfection she’s always been seeking.
Odessa Adlon, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Sheryl Lee Ralph also star.
Meanwhile, Man With a Plan will return for its third season on Monday, Feb. 4 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) after Happy Together completes its season run.
The season premiere of Life in Pieces will be announced at a later date.
