TAR 31 AIRING options (CBS shows Death Watch!)
« 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.
Redwings' Race Across Europe 3 is starting in November. Sign up today!

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.

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.

Im 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 dont get how that would boost CBS

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.

Oh when you say late game you dont actually mean the latest game that day. I thought yall meant the night game. I get it now.

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?

NCIS is on Tuesdays at 8pm before FBI. And no, that's definitely not an option.

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.

I think you all may be forgetting that we should have a second season in the can before end December.

That opens the possibilities for something THIS year and NEXT.

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.

With the shakeup at CBS, could WRP consider shopping the show elsewhere, or are they tied to CBS?

Wouldn't TAR have a contract with CBS, stating that the show has to run on CBS? ???

If CBS cancels the show after TAR31, then WRP can take the show anywhere they want.

It could be wait till before December to announce TAR 31's season premiere date that could be expected in first week of January 2019. TAR remains strong to improvise the ratings.
