Schedules Plus Enhanced: CBS Thursday




Schedules Plus is the ultimate almanac to broadcast network primetime scheduling since 2001. It features lineups for three different parts of the year, as well as A18-49+ ratings that more fairly account for historical decline. For more on the tables and charts in Schedules Plus, see this primer.

This post covers CBS Thursday. Just before the start of the A18-49+ era, CBS became a huge Thursday force by combining summer 2000 reality sensation Survivor with game-changing crime procedural CSI. They were quite competitive with the last years of NBC's Must See TV, then dominated in its immediate aftermath. The duo slipped considerably through the second half of the aughts, but CBS has stayed strong even after their departures from the night thanks to massive comedy The Big Bang Theory. See the 2015-16 breakdown.
