I am very mad at CBS. I watched SEAL Team, Clarice, and Evil. They are all moving to Paramount + next season. I am not going to pay an extra fee to watch these shows. Evil and Clarice were new so I was not invested enough for it to matter much. I have watched 4 seasons of SEAL Team and now it gets moved to a streaming service. To make it worse – CBS is airing the first four episodes of the new season on CBS before moving it to streaming. I guess they think this will get a few more people to pay for Paramount +. Not me. Here is the schedule of shows you can still watch without an extra fee.
8pm – The Neighborhood – my brother tells me it is good. I thought the premise was destined to fail so I didn’t start watching it.
8:30pm – Bob Hearts Abishola – same as above
9pm – NCIS – moved of Tuesday for the first time in 18 years so they can have an all FBI night. My wife watches this. I have never watched it.
10pm – NCIS: Hawaii – Another new NCIS, this time with a female lead. My wife will probably watch. I won’t until they do the inevitable crossover with Magnum.
8pm – FBI – I like this show. It is a standard case of the week procedural. It has a solid cast and some interesting cases.
9pm – FBI: International – a spinoff of FBI. It follows the agents of the FBI’S International Division as they travel the world helping Americans in trouble. I will give it a shot. I have not seen a cast list. That will make a big difference.
10pm – FBI: Most Wanted – FBI’s boring little sibling. The cast is terrible, The stories are not great. I guess people are watching it.
8pm – Survivor – I’m so happy to see this back on the schedule. I love this show. I’m glad they were able to film new seasons.
9pm – Tough as Nails – Phil still has a job while we wait for The Amazing Race to be able to film again. We watch this. It’s a fun competition show. Season 1 cast was more entertaining than season 2. I hope season 3 gets some fun people.
10pm – CSI: Vegas – The original CSI is back. I have never watched a CSI. I don’t think that will change.
8pm – Young Sheldon – I did not like Big Bang Theory so I had no interest in this. I did watch an episode when I was desperate for a short show I didn’t have to think through while on a long flight. It wasn’t bad, but still bears the taint of the mothership.
8:30pm – United States of Al – a decent sitcom about an Afghani interpreter who has come to America and is living with a former marine he worked with during the war. I would not have been too sad if it has been canceled, but it is pleasant enough to watch each week.
9pm – Ghosts – a young couple inherits a beautiful country house only to find it is falling apart and inhabited by many of the deceased previous residents. It sounds like it could be dumb, but I like Rose McIver so I will watch a couple of episodes to give it a shot.
9:30pm – B Positive – I am way behind on this show. I was watching with my son when he would come home for dinner but then other things would come up so we stopped. I like it but I’m surprised it made it to a second season.
10pm – Bull – I watched a few episodes and didn’t like it.
8pm – SWAT/reality series TBA – I like SWAT. I don’t like that it starts here and then moves to Sunday. Seems like the beginning of the end.
9pm – Magnum PI – I like this more than I expected to. I do wish TC and Rick were more involved in the main stories and they focused less on the possible romance between Magnum and Higgins, but it is a good show.
10pm – Blue Bloods – I’m a big fan of this one. A good family/cop show combo.
8pm – drama encores
9pm – drama encores
10pm – 48 Hours
A good night for people with no DVRs and no plans on a Saturday night
7pm – 60 Minutes – never watched it
8pm – The Equalizer – my wife likes this one more than I do. I tend to fall asleep. I used to be a big fan of Adam Goldberg, but then I unfollowed him on Twitter after he spent the entire pandemic scolding everyone who didn’t do lockdown exactly like he did. There are a couple of authors who might meet the same fate soon.
9pm – NCIS: Los Angeles – the only NCIS my wife never watched for some reason
10pm – SEAL Team/SWAT – so annoying.
Amazing Race – I it might be 2022 before they ever get to film again.
Blood and Treasure, Come Dance With Me, Good Sam, Smallwood, Undercover Boss.
Good Sam is a doctor show with Sophia Bush and Jason Isaacs. I think I will give it a shot.
Smallwood is a comedy about a man who decides to follow his dream to become a professional bowler after getting laid off from his factory job. Given it has Chi McBride and I spent a good portion of my youth in a bowling alley, I feel like I have to give this one a shot.
All Rise, MacGyver, Mom, NCIS: New Orleans and the Unicorn. Evil, SEAL Team and Clarice move to streaming so they might was well be canceled.
