Title: TAR 31 AIRING options (CBS shows Death Watch!)
Post by: georgiapeach on July 30, 2018, 10:40:01 AM
So I think given the right cancellations....that TAR 31 could stand a very good chance of airing THIS Fall!

So...

based on the CBS fall schedule, who do you think would be dumped...and would that particular airing time work for TAR?

This is NOT a WISHLIST Thread...

You should have some factual or good speculative media evidence to back up any  possible show cancellations.

Time of airing is fair.

I have been saying for years that TAR should be Wed at 8 with Survivor at 9. That would give CBS a lockdown for that night. I know the counter arguments...but still.

Our old friend Sunday night would remain a possibility. A HUGE disadvantage are the constant Football overruns, that really hurts LIVE viewing.

Friday night at 10 is NOT for us. This remains a Family Show, and parents who want to watch with their kids and teach "life lessons" along the way are NOT watching LIVE TV on Fridays at 10.
Nor are young viewers...hopefully they are out at Football Games or on dates.....

I personally think Magnum PI will not do well. Whether it gets moved around or outright canceled I am not sure. My dad is a huge Magnum PI fan from the old days and he absolutely no desire to watch it. That being said I don't want Amazing Race to be moved to Monday because it'll be battling Monday Night Football. They could potentially move Seal Team to Monday (don't know how well that is doing), and do your idea of Survivor and Amazing Race combo.

Also is CBS not doing Thursday Night Football this year?

Also Also, I just read i needed evidence or info and sorry I don't have that other than the fact Monday Night Football normally does really well, and my dad doesn't want to watch the new Magnum PI. I'll delete this if necessary.

FOX has Thursday night football starting this year.

So if TAR31 would air this fall, TAR32 would take it place and air in january/february 2019?


I really want some of the new CBS shows to flop just to watch TAR31 ealrlier.  :funny:

Well it isn't filmed yet...but I would hope that would be the plan if filming goes well and continues on schedule.. Maybe more like April...but spring 2019 def seems possible.

Hopefully we'll never see speed TAR January again.... :groan:

I have to offer one correction: I know the football delays are very annoying to deal with, but they actually HELP ratings. Football is still the most popular program on television, and when CBS gets the late game, all the evening shows get a boost, with the exception of the 10 PM show which is often bumped out of primetime. It's not a huge boost, mind you, but as someone who has followed the ratings industry for years, it was always noticeable the bumps that either CBS or Fox would get whenever they have the late game.

I think the best cancellation possibility is a show God Friended Me, Sundays at 8. Their other new shows are a reboot of Magnum PI, and a procedural FBI, both of which are right in CBS's yawn-inducing crime wheelhouse.

Personally, I dont see it airing in the fall. Networks are generally a bit more reluctant to pull new shows so quickly these days. I really think TAR31 will fill the same slot as TAR30. Especially when you consider the season has the reality show theme, airing in Survivor's slot makes too much sense, especially given last years favorable results.

If it's true that season 32 is filming this fall, I think we'll see season 31 in January/Feb, and then season 32 will air next summer, likely paired up with BB on the schedule. That would be a fun schedule for the next couple years, and I'd welcome it.

Post by: dryedmangoez on July 30, 2018, 10:13:55 PM
Basically everything TheRabbi says above^

The broadcast networks are not as trigger happy today as they once were. This isn't 2007 when CBS quickly yanked Viva Laughlin from the air and plugged in TAR12. CBS even stuck with "Wisdom of the Crowd" for its full 13 episode order this past season despite having horrible ratings (WITH an NFL boost) and the allegations against star Jeremy Piven.

CBS isn't going to suddenly pull any of its returning series early, so all those slots can be ruled out. As for the new shows:

MAGNUM P.I. - Mondays at 9pm
It's a big-name franchise. A remake of a legacy show for CBS.
CBS Mondays have collapsed overall and they are completely rebuilding the night with 2 new comedies at 8pm, Magnum P.I and the returning Bull at 10pm. They are definitely not going to cancel both comedies at the same time, especially with big names like Cedric the Entertainer and Damon Wayans Jr as the stars of both. And they're going to stick with Magnum P.I. for at the very least, the initial 13 episode order. Otherwise it would be a huge embarrassment to yank such a high profile series from the air early.

FBI - Tuesdays at 9pm
It has the cushiest and most comfortable timeslot between the NCISeses. So it likely has the best chance to succeed. Also being Dick Wolf's first non-NBC series in years, CBS is going to want to keep him happy. Most unlikely slot.

GOD FRIENDED ME - Sundays at 8pm
Again, if Wisdom of the Crowd surviving until December is the benchmark, God Friended Me should at least see it to that same point. It will get the NFL boost. Even if it gets sub-1.0s, NCIS:LA and Madam Secretary both hover around and below the same mark.

Bottomline, networks are not quick to pull shows off the air these days. These new series would have to absolutely crash and burn (unlikely) to get yanked early.

Iím confused why both of you are saying the NFL will boost CBS viewership. Sunday night football and Monday night football are on NBC and ESPN respectively. I donít get how that would boost CBS
Title: Re: TAR 31 AIRING options (CBS shows Death Watch!)
Post by: dryedmangoez on July 30, 2018, 10:23:38 PM
Sunday afternoon football is on Fox and CBS. And CBS gets the late afternoon game, at the very least, every other week. Sometimes in consecutive weeks. Thus, the NFL overruns which wreak havoc (but give a ratings boost) to CBS' primetime Sunday schedule. Many weeks, the afternoon games actually have more viewers than NBC's primetime game.

Title: Re: TAR 31 AIRING options (CBS shows Death Watch!)
Post by: theschnauzers on July 30, 2018, 11:17:06 PM
What is delaying cancellation of failing new shows is the ability to see live plus seven and live plus 30 on all platforms as well as international sales with each broadcast network mostly owning their own shows on the schedule, i.e., less profit that is shared,more that is kept.
A show has to be really bad in live plus three and plus seven in the demos to face a quick cancellation. Now something could happen that causes a November premiere for a cancelled show (Viva Laughlin, anybody?) but that could mean other shows get shifted in the process.
We'll just have to see how this plays out given CBS' historic insistence on stunt casting to an extreme.

We can't be sure yet how Survivor's week-by-week schedule is being set up for either of its scycles this coming television year. It's quite possible, as I have suggested in the past that CBS understands how well TAR functioned in that Wednesday at 8 timeslot and will work to get two cycles of both Survivor and TAR in this time around. Otherwise, their wasting the opportunity TAR earned with season 30 in that time slot.

I just don't see CBS returning TAR to Sundays. There were constant criticism of that time slot the entire time TAR had it because of the constant TAR time shifting and making it more difficult for families to watch consistently on what was a school night.

Friday nights suck!

Teenagers do not watch TV on Friday nights! As Peach said, they are out on dates or out with their mates. (Personal experience. :))

If TAR does air on Sundays, it will have to be on a 8pm timeslot. You do not have family shows on, at 9pm on school nights :res:

What's on before FBI on Tuesday nights? Is that an option?

Would we get better ratings in the autumn then in spring, as it's too cold to be outside and then you have more people watching TV?

Post by: jb542 on July 31, 2018, 01:51:05 PM
I think it will stay in the Winter on Wednesdays. I only see it replacing God Friended Me on Sundays because I don't think that show will do well at all. The CBS Entertainment President isn't scared to move things around so I wouldn't be surprised to see TAR air this fall, but I would expect another Winter start between Survivor.

That opens the possibilities for something THIS year and NEXT.

Title: Re: TAR 31 AIRING options (CBS shows Death Watch!)
Post by: dryedmangoez on July 31, 2018, 06:55:55 PM
Of the broadcast networks, except for The CW, CBS has been least likely to shuffle their primetime schedule. And with CBS' primetime suffering big declines the last few years, ratings that were cancel-worthy even just two years ago (relative to other CBS programs) are now good enough to get renewed for next season. (Along with other factors such as international distribution - Hello Elementary!)

And what does having one fully produced and one fully-filmed season by December have anything to do with whether or not TAR31 premieres before the end of the year? They could have three seasons in the can, but if there's no available slot on the schedule, then there's no available slot on the schedule. Simple as that.

If you want to force TAR31 onto the air before the end of 2018, just hope and pray for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of CBS' primetime schedule to completely and utterly collapse. (Which is again, unlikely.) Because you can immediately rule out Wednesday-Saturday.

Why are you talking cancellation? From what I hear, we are in the best place we have been in for some time.

TAR 32 is actively casting, plans are in place for that filming.

The only thing unclear is our airing date, and a lot of that is because we have proven we can be useful in many slots.

And don't forget that there is some connection to ABC...IF (big if) we were to be cancelled I am under the impression that ABC would be eager to have us.

Well, "God Friended Me" premieres next week and will get an NFL boost then and every other week. But even without it, it's safe until December. CBS stuck with "Wisdom of the Crowd" in that timeslot with sub-1.0 numbers for its full 13 episode order until January.

Happy Together only got a 1.0 rating for its premiere and lost a lot of its lead in as well.
The only way I see TAR airing on a Monday is if Magnum P.I. is yanked and needs a replacement immediately. P.I. went fractional last night so let's see if it drops at all before sweeps in November

NBC has announced Dwayne Johnson's 10-episode "Titan Games" reality-competition program will premiere Wednesday, January 2 at 8pm with a 2-hour premiere and air at 8pm for one hour the weeks after.

Seems like most of the new shows have actually succeeded in a full-season order. SEAL Team (after Survivor) is confirmed for a second season run which "seals" that reality comp spot away for an audience capture. Sigh...

Best to accept for either Happy Together (a weird Monday slot) or SWAT (a 1-hour Thursday slot) getting reffed out for TAR to jump in before the start of the Christmas season. I would like to expect they would fall into risky fractional ratings in a couple of weeks.

Otherwise, I think it's OK to think that we are headed for another usual post-New Year's premiere since that's what happened with last season.

Criminal Minds (Weds at 10) only has 15 eps this season so maybe after that ends in January, they push Seal Team back to 10 and have TAR at 9?

Apparently it is going to fill that period between Survivor and Big Brother. But this brings up another thought... Will there be double episodes during that time if Big Brother starts the end of June or beginning of July? BB always has Wednesday episodes.

I was another that hoped for a January start. I actually didn't mind the double episodes since IMO there wasn't a whole lot else to watch on TV during that time.

Taking the schedule information further, it does seem CBS couldnít find a way this time to air TAR straight through on Wednesdays at 8 pm between seasons of Survivor. They can do so in the time slot in May, and Big Brother has been able to have their live eviction episodes at 9pm during its summer time slots.
Could mean TAR runs into early August with 12 straight one hour episodes.
At some point, CBS is going to have to figure out how to alternate TAR and Survivor year round in the same time slot. Theyíre not there yet.

Well this stinks. I really thought that with season 32 already filming that the January slot was a foregone conclusion. Between Celebrity BB, and the 2 new reality shows, there was plenty of slots it could have aired. But CBS has been desperately trying to find another reality hit for a while now. Didn't work with Hunted, and also that show with the young kids making some kind of community a few years back - the name escapes me.

These poor contestants are going to be waiting forever. 31 filmed in June/July and have to wait nearly a year for air, and who knows when 32 will air!

Hopefully it does well because Survivor will be over and their audience may be looking for something to watch the next week and it's 1 month away from BB.

The multiple Emmy Award-winning for its 31st season with Emmy Award-nominated host Phil Keoghan, following the wrap of Survivor Season 38.

That's great to hear! Even though it's close to summer, at least we know it's airing. And on a "Survivor timeslot"? Possibly even better to rake in those handful more viewers.

That would be incredibly devious!! But I would certainly subscribe, if only for a month.

It's certainly a fascinating possibility. They did put a season of big brother on the service near when it launched if I remember right. But TAR also has to be MUCH more expensive to produce than BB, so it depends on how much financial resources CBS wants to pour into the service. I'd be curious to see their subscriber numbers.

If one of the new shows flops TAR would be a prime choice for a replacement.

But it would likely be 32 that was moved up in that case.

From what I hear 31 is better suited to a summer slot.

There will be two new reality shows on CBS later this year that will be called The World's Best and Million Dollar Mile, to be aired in February and March, respectively.

If either of those described shows will be flopped, TAR 31 may have a chance to air earlier than scheduled May 22 premiere. I could say The World's Best or Million Dollar Mile to Saturdays.

The World's Best is getting the Super bowl lead-in treatment. CBS is going to give it every chance to succeed. Would be absolutely stunned if that got yanked or banished to Saturday. Plus, CBS hasn't exactly had a bunch of new hits this year, but they are sticking with shows at least through their initial episode orders.

World's Best unsurprisingly had a strong start after the super bowl, but it went right to the gutter in it's time slot debut last night, drawing just a 1.0 rating. That's less than what TAR30 was doing in the time period last year (before the Olympics). And CBS was airing reruns in that slot this January as they waited for this to premiere. What a waste. CBS continues to have a nightmare of a time launching new reality shows outside their core 3 (4 I guess if you include Undercover Boss). I don't expect anything to happen to it on the schedule; just sharing the ratings data.

They will just have to swallow the loss. They can't just yank it off the air. They could maybe tweak the format a little to speed things up and chop off an episode or two. But it would also be very embarrassing for CBS to even do that, let alone take their post-Super Bowl show off their air so suddenly. Even moving it to Saturday would be very embarrassing and something they would likely not do for such a high profile show.

My understanding is that the Worldís Best was completely in the can some time ago, so the midwinter timing is more of a burn off than anything. Iíve said in the past CBS wants Wednesday at 8 for TAR.
I noticed with interest yesterday that Jeff Probst was asking on Twitter yesterday about whether fans would go for some 2-hour episodes, exactly what Survivor would need to do so TAR can share that time slot possibly returning both shows twice a year. This would be the time to address that question for pre-production of both shows for the 2019-2020 season.

The odds of TAR coming back before 5/22 are really low. Even with how bad Worlds Best is doing, it only has 3 weeks left before being replaced by Million dollar mile. And CBS will want to advertise the heck out of that during March Madness since it has a Lebron connection. We should have more patience; it's getting closer.

I think we are locked for May. With the possibility of 32 in the fall.

The new show (Reboot your Life) that is being casted now would not be aired for at least a year.

Itís possible, but the planning time for a filming in October on top of summer would be extraordinarily short by TAR standards. Even when we had three seasons air in a 12 month period one time in the early seasons, the filming was more spread out given preproduction and postproduction needs.
Iím not sure where the October mention came from. source?

In any event, a summer filming will mean two seasons in the can by summerís end after 31 finishes airing. That would cover 2019-2020. Hopefully weíll have a better understanding before then of how 32 and 33 will be aired.

The Amazing Race NOW premieres Wednesday April 17th at 9pm after Survivor!

Does this mean it qualifies for the 2019 emmys now?


A BIG FAT RESOUNDING YES!!!

I just saw this too lol. Million Dollar Mile got moved to Saturdays. That was a flop.

It did a 0.9 and then a 0.8. The World's Best did around a 0.6 and that didn't get pulled. Weird. lol

Yeah. It was more of a save face kind of move by CBS. Pulling a show that premiered after the Super Bowl would be a huge embarrassment. Also a little bit of a disappointment for James Corden who CBS definitely eyes as a major face for the network moving forward.

I think this opens the door to have 32 air in the summer as well. Now 31 can be over by the end of June and they can keep right on with 32 before the fall shows return.

Except for the fact that airing a regular-length episode every week still means that the finale would be on Independence Eve.

Nice! So BOTH of CBS's new reality attempts flopped.

Technically, three if you include Hunted which CBS obviously wanted to have replace TAR as well.

If anything, TAR31 doing well may open the door for TAR32 to air in the Fall. Having back-to-back seasons like that would be too much and CBS, obviously wanting to maximize any profit, would save TAR for the more lucrative Fall slot than in the summer.

Precisely, why rush to air 32 in August when it can wait until September?

Yeah, because CBS has never aired 2 hour episodes or finales before. It would be extremely easy to accomplish and I was simply pointing out the possibility. Would rather it air in the fall though.

Then it should've been mentioned from the get-go rather than wording it oddly.

For what it's worth, Chicago Fire and Modern Family/Single Parents will be repeats on NBC and ABC on April 17. New eps on FOX and the CW.

I assume TAR takes a week off for the Survivor finale in May?

Yes. That I see on Futon Critic that TAR will have a break for May 15 to make room for Survivor finale.

I would also assume (dangerous, I know) that TAR would move to the 8pm hour as well on the 22nd.

With the week off for Survivor, TAR will have exactly six episodes aired before May 31, just making it eligible for the Emmys. That is assuming all one-hour/one episode a week.

Only those six episodes will be eligible for consideration. The (6?) episodes that will air after May 31 won't be eligible.

Yep. I wouldn't be surprised if CBS moves TAR to 8pm after Survivor ends and expands to 2 hours. CBS makes $117K for a 30-Second Ad so they probably want the $$ instead of airing repeats during the summer.

Seems akin to a fixture from the Sunday era, i.e. the mid-season two-week break for the Country Music Awards.

Not directly related to the airing of 31, as we'll be midway through the season, but about the airing of 32, and possibly filming of cycle 33.

The CBS Upfronts for ad buyers is slated for 05/15 afternoon:

In a sense the imminent premiere is an improvement re:the upfront. Under the earlier premiere date, season 31 would have still been a week in the future.
