Despite not being the one-ton gorilla, clobbering the other networks in the ratings with ease, that it was a decade ago, CBS is still punching away. Its secret? Despite the occasional dalliance with diversity and youth programming, it’s still the home of shows beloved by white old people: multi-cam comedies and conservative procedurals about white men.
Have a guess what it’s got for you this year.
- 9JKL – family living next door to each other
- Young Sheldon – Big Bang Theory prequel
- Me, Myself and I – one man’s life examined over a 50-year span
- Seal Team – Navy SEALs doing sealy things
- SWAT – reboot of the 70s TV series about cops with very big guns
- Wisdom of the Crowd – tech innovator creates a crowdsourcing hub to solve his own daughter’s murder
Americans – there are lovely trailers for all them awaiting you after the jump. Everyone else: some of those videos won’t work for you, so you’ll have to make do with this for the rest.
