CBS reveals ‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 9, ‘Survivor: Blood vs’ Water’ premiere dates

CBSWant to know when some of your favorite CBS shows are coming back for the fall? Well, you don’t have to wait any further to find out, because we have answers for you. The network revealed the news on Monday, though we cannot say that there is anything on here that really surprises us. When you are the #1 network on television, there’s no reason to take risks. After all, you can let the rest of your competition run around like headless chickens while you point and laugh while rolling around on piles of money.

These premiere dates are still subject to change, given that things can happen between now and September. There is also one mid-season date that is thrown in here, just to give you an idea of what the network has planned for the latter half of the schedule. (Note: If you want to watch a trailer for the new series, just click on its individual link below.)
