For everyone out there excited to learn more about when NCIS season 19 or Blue Bloods season 12 are premiering, we’ve finally got the info! Today, CBS confirmed the start dates for a lot of their shows on the fall schedule, and it’s a little more scattered than we’re used to.

Typically, CBS has a tendency to kick off the bulk of their shows all in the same week. That’s not happening this time around — we’re scattered over the course of a few, and there are some interesting things to take away from this.

If you want to watch our review for the NCIS season 18 finale, you can do that in the video below! Why not also SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess on YouTube, while you’re at it? We have all sorts of great NCIS coverage there plus reviews of Animal Kingdom, American Horror Stories, and more.

Without further ado, though, let’s dive into these dates — remember that all times mentioned here are Eastern.
