The 2021 fall TV season on CBS is packed with all the dependable franchises, crowd-pleasing comedies, and titles with acronyms you've come to expect.

There are a few major changes in store. After 18 years of airing in the Tuesday at 8/7c slot, NCIS will move to Monday nights at 9/8c. The long-running procedural will share the night with sitcoms The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola. Tuesday nights will now belong to the FBI franchise, as the flagship series and FBI: Most Wanted are joined by new drama FBI: International.

In another shakeup, SEAL Team is moving to the Paramount+ for Season 5, but the drama will air its first four new episodes on CBS before moving to the streaming platform. S.W.A.T. will move into its Sunday night time slot midseason after kicking off the season on Friday nights.

Other returning CBS dramas in the fall lineup include this year's freshman hit The Equalizer, the long-running Blue BloodsNCIS: Los Angeles, and Magnum P.I. They're joined by comedies Young Sheldon and B Positive, and the fan-favorite competition show Survivor.
