That means there are three slots unavailable. :)
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?

The Wednesday 8pm timeslot continues to get a little more competitive as Fox has slotted the new series The Masked Singer for that timeslot starting January 2nd as well. It's a hugely popular show in its home country of South Korea and a growing international franchise.

Oh! The Fox tweet earlier said 8pm.  :duno:
Could still clash at 9pm of course if they follow TAR30's airing pattern.

NBC has moved Titan Games to Thursday so TAR won't have as big of a competition (if TAR still airs on Weds)

May 22nd is so late! I'm glad it probably won't be doubling up episodes like last season, but it's too long to wait!

I don't care about double episodes.
What I care about is that by March it'll be over a year without TAR, when we used to get 2 seasons a year, and that's sad. :/

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.

The important news is that we’re keeping the Wednesday at 8pm ET/PT time slot.

Taking the schedule information further, it does seem CBS couldn’t 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. They’re not there yet.

I am desperate right now to wait for TAR in May. Further more, I will still have The Bachelor this January during the off-season.

So this also means TAR won't be eligible for the Emmys. They need to air at least half of the season before end of eligibility. (May 31)

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!

As if there weren't a precedent: Strangers' Edition contestants had to wait nearly as long.

Can we still pray for another show to get canned/moved and somehow TAR gets an earlier slot?  :d025:

You can! Season 29 was originally slated for Fridays at 8 but moved up a month to Thursday at 10 after a show tanked there. Personally, I think we should just stick to our schedule. Wednesday at 8 is a great slot, it just sucks we have to wait.
