CBS 2016 Upfronts-TAR Scheduling Discussion
« on: May 18, 2016, 02:31:40 AM »
Hang on to your hats everyone!

Today we find out our fall broadcast position.

Back on Fridays? Moved to Sundays?

Worst case: a mid season replacement?

Today is the day!

Something's missing from this purported CBS Fall TV lineup. I hope this is a hoax.

Some clarification. I guess that's better than cancellation, but it sounds like we're into winter and summer cycles now.

It means that TAR 29 won't be premièring in October but sometime later in the TV season - maybe December.
It depends on how well some of the new shows on CBS do and what gets cancelled.

TAR29 will be the first off-cycle season since season 12.

The last time TAR was relegated to the bench, TAR4, but mainly TAR5 and TAR12 both rejuvenated and reinvigorated the franchise.  They were critical and ratings successes.

TAR29 will need to do the same, otherwise we might not even see TAR30.

Not possibly. Mid-season in the US usually starts between first week of January right until early/mid-March. ABC's The Bachelor traditionally starts every January.

Here's the predicted schedule:

TAR 29 = First week of January to Early/Mid-March

I think TAR 30 could be air on next summer (probably June to September 2017).

TAR is just schedule spackle at this point.  It will either fill in for a quickly cancelled show or be used as a midseason bridge for MacGyver from December-February.

TAR would be easier to plug in a hole than trying to premiere another new show as well.

I could see CBS putting this Wednesdays at 8 in between Survivor seasons. That would still only mean one cycle though. I don't see how we get 2 seasons at this point. Last time we were benched we only got one (12)

No! Please watch MacGyver! We need it to succeed so we don't end up back on Friday. We need some other show to go into a death spiral on a better viewing night to show that TAR can still draw a good audience.

It could be that. It could be that some other show isn't getting an audience and TAR will be on in November.

The season 26 premiere aired on a Wednesday with a good deal more promotion to advertise the gimmick and still didn't draw much of an audience. So unfortunately I think that ship has sailed.

Whether the new MacGyver will suffer ratings after the first few episodes, it could axe and slightly enter the death slot list? It's okay for TAR to skip off from the fall schedule and having focus with my normal activities.

We are absolutely close to getting canceled. Moving to Fridays was the first step entering the final frontier. This is the next step. If they were happy with the ratings it wouldn't be moving.

And I think expecting magically higher ratings on a different night is just extremely wishful thinking. The days of getting higher than a 1.2 or so are behind us.

From a scheduling standpoint, there are a few scenarios:

First, one advantage for TAR is that it is an existing series that does not need much introduction.  So if something fails, CBS can plug it into that hole without a huge promotional push needed for another brand new show to replace a failed brand new show.

-Replace a rookie failure
CBS' new fall dramas are "Bull" (Tuesdays 9pm), "Pure Genius" (Thursdays 10pm starting Oct 27), "MacGyver" (Fridays 8pm)
Since "Pure Genius" premieres so late, it'll at least last until January.  "MacGyver" is a big property CBS wants to be a huge hit, but if it starts low and collapses to sub-1.0 ratings, it'll get yanked early.  Even more for "Bull" on Tuesdays, but it's got a cushy NCIS sandwich to prop it up.  They are not going to yank any of the veteran shows early.  And only catastrophic failure of any of the new shows will bring TAR on the air before the end of 2016.

-Midseason Bridge
-TAR could be the bridge between the two seasons of Survivor on Wednesdays at 8pm or any other show really.  Similar to how "Undercover Boss" has been used to fill in holes during the Christmas/New Year's break.  This could possibly mean a shorter Race too, just like TAR12. 
However, if TAR were meant to be a bridge for Survivor seasons, CBS would've said so just like how they announced "Undercover Boss" would serve as a bridge between TAR seasons before.

-Late Season Failure
TAR could also be used to fill in if one of the network's new midseason dramas fail or they end existing dramas early with no midseason hiatuses.  That won't be until at least March or April. 

-Summer
If TAR films this Summer (2016) as usual, CBS may just keep TAR29 on the shelf and end up burning off the show in the summer of 2017. This is probably the worst case scenario.  And if we've reached this point, then TARUS will officially be dead.

Agree with your statement, Dryedmangoez. TAR 29 will be start filming around this year's summer, TAR 30 will probably be filming in winter 2017 (around January to February).

Undercover Boss could possibly a mid-season around December 2016 to February 2017, then to May to August 2017, just as IMO.

So, there is NOT gonna have any TAR this fall?

This is sad but I kinda see this coming. No surprise at all with the low rating and the dead time slot. Viewer's interest has been declined a lot over the recent seasons sure didn't help this show to survive at all.

Hopefully this help pressure WRP to coming up with better designs and stuff or else I think this is gonna be the end of this once-amazing reality.

I read some CBS's Facebook page comments and they didn't realize that there was TAR while they even knew other CBS shows. Even Madam Secretary and Survivor.

Also, would move of TAR to ABC be a good idea? I'm not sure.

The odds of a move to ABC are less than a move to the CBS All-Access app online. (And CBS is programming new shows for that platform -- the new Star Trek series and the new spin off from The Good Wife, both to premiere in early 2017.

But I do take the scheduling as an admission that Friday nights with those multi-week pre-emptions in the fall and spring really weren't such a good idea. Any more than all the sports overruns on Sundays. In my mind best bet would be a post-Survivor Wednesday time slot; about the only thing CBS hasn't tried -- but twice -- in the past 15 plus years. And both times, it did help the ratings.

Season 25 was a great season but moving it on Fridays was a really bad move and it snowballed on the succeeding Seasons 26, 27 and 28. Are they trying to kill TAR? Putting TAR on Sundays were great and it delivered. Season 24 was a terrible season in all levels but it still had a decent amount of viewership. Take note TAR is a family show and most families would bond on Sundays at home. CBS, I hope you are reading this, we super TAR fans here are appalled by putting it on Fridays.  Bring it back on Sundays or after Survivor. The next seasons should reach to greater heights again. You'd have to be like TAR 5 or 12 where the viewership was at its highest. I don't want TAR ending up like American Idol. The fact that Season 28 had prominent social media figures with huge fan bases and still did not deliver is questionable and indicates something is wrong.

They really are trying to advertise a lot of the new CBS shows too. I saw a lot of ads for the upcoming new shows in the fall during the Survivor finale

TAR has been all over the days of the week. I am surprised it hasn't moved to Saturday primetime yet. The problem affecting the show now isn't just a one-answer solution. Here's the frankness coming out: The racers have not been as competitive, the editing blatantly favors certain teams, sometimes the progress of other trailing teams skip or jump ahead during tasks (TAR28: firecracker torito, Colombian beach party Detour) or we viewers are unaware of the details of the tasks (just assemble an army knife, umm how?), the constant hours of operations - please stop, and the quality of TAR signage has shown obvious decline (makeshift Speed Bump signs).

I think TAR taking a break from the fall schedule can either prove to be a fantastic choice to improve the overall atmosphere and quality of the show IF production does it right, or falter a lot more if they are like, "Okay, let's take a nice vacation. We deserve it cuz we finished," and keep everything as it is.

My hopes for the airing dates: Early Spring (Late February) 2017, Wednesday after Survivor or whatever investigation drama CBS decides to air, or Sunday if Brain Dead is cancelled. Please be another TAR10-17 era!

What's on before survivor on a Wednesday? Though if it's after survivor that would hopefully give it a big boost!

I remember CBS airing the leftover produced episodes of The McCarthys and Bad Teacher on Saturdays after the network said it was cancelled. :lol:

Yeah, probably not my best "in disbelief" statement.

TAR was tried on Saturdays over a decade ago on a cable channel. And then CBS tried airing TAR om Saturdays (TAR 5, IIRC) and changed its Saturday scheduling plans for TAR 6 when Viva Laughin proved to be an unmitigated ratings and creative disaster on Tuesdays.

TAR's original time slot (Wednesdays at 8pm) is now occupied by Survivor. But I wouldn't mind a Survivor-TAR scheduling block on Wednesdays.

One of the scheduling issues that arose with the Friday time slot were the multi-week pre-emptions that were necessary due to sporting and other events. That was also complicated by CBS unexpectedly picking up the new NFL Thursday night package for the first 8 weeks of the NFL season; this season, CBS takes the first eight weeks plus a week in December, and NBC takes the remainder on top of its Sunday night package. That also means CBS has been having to hold shows until the beginning of November.

I would look at the season starting at the same time as the other November series, by then CBS should be able to decide if any of their other series need to be pulled at the end of the CBS share of the Thursday Night Football package.

The show's ratings were falling downwards on Sundays. Why in the world would they put it back in a valuable timeslot? TAR is not as popular as it used to be. This happens to all aging shows.

Season 25 was a great season but moving it on Fridays was a really bad move and it snowballed on the succeeding Seasons 26, 27 and 28. Are they trying to kill TAR? Putting TAR on Sundays were great and it delivered. Season 24 was a terrible season in all levels but it still had a decent amount of viewership.

TAR is already dead...it's on life-support at this point :)

TAR29 needs to be a TAR5 or TAR12 x5 otherwise TARUS is dead.

Wed at 9 would have been a lovely spot.


http://denver.cbslocal.com/2017/02/02/cbs-adds-doubt-to-mid-season-schedule/

Unfortunately, the show itself cancelled after a mere low rated two episodes. Too bad it didn't replace TAR on the timeslot.

http://deadline.com/2017/02/doubt-canceled-two-episodes-cbs-pulled-criminal-minds-beyond-borders-replace-1201975118/

Incredibly idiotic idea to run the Criminal Minds' spinoff at the same day and immediately following the original. CBS should have just made a steady reality Wednesday block considering how much Survivor usually does and how steady Hunted is performing right now. Ugh. :res:
