With the 2015-2016 broadcast television season about to kick off, it may be helpful to have all of the series premiere dates and times in one place, along with season premieres and new time slots for returning shows.
Media Life magazine has put together just such a schedule, running from the rollout in five days of CBS’s new “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (Tuesday, Sept. 8, 11:35 p.m.) all the way through the arrival of the high-profile NBC drama spinoff “Chicago Med” (Tuesday, Nov. 17, 10 p.m.).
The fall season’s traditional premiere week kicks off Monday, Sept. 21, but a few prime-time shows are getting a head-start with early launches, notably ABC’s “20/20” (Friday, Sept. 11, 10 p.m.) and “Dancing with the Stars” (Monday, Sept. 14, 8 p.m.), along with NBC’s series debut for the variety hour “Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris” (Tuesday, Sept. 15, 10 p.m.).
NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” (Thursday, Sept. 10, 8:30 p.m. — yes, Sunday night football debuts on a Thursday night) and CBS’s “Thursday Night Football” (Thursday, Sept. 17, 8 p.m.) also kick off before the TV season officially starts.
