Want to know the CBS Fall Premiere Dates for the 2017-18 season? Look no further! They were recently unveiled by the network, and we’ve got them for you below with a little bit of analysis to go along with it.

Beyond the later start date for the majority of the fall season this year (September 25), there are a few things worth noting — first, Thursday Night Football is once again leaving its mark on the schedule courtesy of some timeslot swaps. Second, all the times listed are Eastern, so adjust accordingly depending on where you love.

Monday, September 25

8:00 – The Big Bang Theory

8:30 – Young Sheldon (special premiere)

9:00 – Kevin Can Wait

9:30 – Me, Myself & I

10:00 – Scorpion

Tuesday, September 26

8:00 – NCIS

9:00 – Bull

10:00 – NCIS: New Orleans


8:00 – Survivor

9:00 – SEAL Team

10:00 – Criminal Minds

Note that this is different from past seasons, where the Survivor premiere and the Big Brother finale aired on the same night.

Friday, September 29

8:00 – MacGyver

9:00 – Hawaii Five-0

10:00 – Blue Bloods

Sunday, October 1

8:30 – Wisdom of the Crowd

9:30 – NCIS: Los Angeles

This is a night already delayed by NFL football, so CBS is waiting on the Madam Secretary premiere as to not air it super-late in the evening.

Monday, October 2

8:30 – 9JKL

Sunday, October 8

10:00 – Madam Secretary

Monday, October 30

8:00 – Kevin Can Wait (new time)

9:00 – Me, Myself & I (new time)

9:30 – Superior Donuts

Thursday, November 2

8:00 – The Big Bang Theory (new time)

8:30 – Young Sheldon (new time)

9:00 – Mom

9:30 – Life in Pieces

10:00 – SWAT

Why CBS is choosing to wait more than a month between the first and second episode of Young Sheldon is beyond comprehension.

Odds are, NBC, Fox, ABC, and The CW will likely reveal their own premiere dates over the coming weeks. None of them have the same hurdles to jump through that CBS does because of Thursday Night Football in the early going — NBC will have to worry about it a little bit later in the fall.
