SHARE CBS sets ‘Supergirl’ premiere after ‘The Big Bang Theory’

For some reason, CBS thinks viewers of “The Big Bang Theory” will be interested in a new superhero series.

The network has scheduled the premiere of “Supergirl” just after a new “Big Bang” on Oct. 26. It’s one of several new and returning CBS shows whose launch dates were announced Tuesday.

As usual, the most-watched network will stick to Nielsen’s official premiere week, Sept. 21-27, for the bulk of its series rollouts, including “Big Bang”(which will again air on Mondays in early fall), “NCIS”and “Survivor.”

But “Thursday Night Football”will return Sept. 17, running through Oct. 29 before shifting to NFL Network. “Criminal Minds”and new drama “Code Black” will debut on Wednesday, Sept. 30. “Madam Secretary,” “The Good Wife”and “CSI: Cyber” will return on Sundays as of Oct. 4.On Nov. 5, “Bang”and new comedy “Life in Pieces” will shift permanently to Thursday, followed by the returns of “Mom”and “Elementary”and the debut of new comedy “Angel from Hell,” starring Dolton’s own Jane Lynch.
