THOUGHTS

– CBS apparently got too afraid to break up The Big Bang Theory & Young Sheldon to help new comedies. As a result, the monday ones will have to fight for themselves without any support. That might ugly real quick! Hopefully, they have a few more to launch midseason. Though none of them are strong.

Magnum, P.I. will also have to self start but at least there will be curiosity for it that might help it get sampled the first weeks of its run. Other than that, I’ll probably be a struggle… Dick Wolf’s F.B.I. got luckier with the NCIS’ lead-in. Bull moving to monday at 10 could be a real challenge, facing both The Good Doctor & Manifest, but CBS probably wanted to put something that’s strong and not a dying show. Though Bull could die in the process.

– Not buzzy at all Murphy Brown revival is exactly where it should be: paired with Mom in a slot that’s not so important for them. But wasting Young Sheldon on Mom once again is a bit of a waste.

God Friended Me on sunday? I know it’s church day but this show that’s supposed to skew younger than other CBS dramas will never find this audience here in this slot, between 60 Minutes and NCIS: Los Angeles… Gone by december! Welcome back Instinct!

    Young Sheldon could run many more years and hence makes sense for CBS to continue propping it with TBBT (and raking in ad cash). Remember that the contracts for TBBT are up this season and with the main cast each earning about $1m per episode, WB/CBS are approaching about $10m in total per episode. And with the even lower ratings TBBT will probably spend the better half of 2019 hovering around a 1.5 or so despite the high price tag…. I Bet CBS will renew it anyway. But till then it had better build up Young Sheldon.

    Magnum will be fine. Those Monday sitcoms esp Neighborhood could be DOA. FBI will most certainly last very long – looks very solid and one of the better CBS procedurals.

    The best surprise though (atleast according to the trailer) is God Friended Me. Reminded me abit of Eli Stone. Unfortunately it’ll up against SNF. How long it’ll last is anyone’s guess.
