CBS is making several new scheduling moves for the upcoming month.
Due to low ratings in the Thursday 10 p.m. slot, freshman drama “Training Day,” starring the late Bill Paxton, will move to dreaded Saturday nights at the 9 p.m. slot, beginning on April 8.
Next airing on Thursdays 10 p.m., which had been a tough time slot this season for CBS with “Pure Genius” also producing lackluster ratings from this past fall, will be the new season of “The Amazing Race.” The long-running reality competition had originally been slated to return for its 29th season on Friday, Apr. 21 but will now return on Thursday, March 30 at 10 p.m., the network’s first Thursday night of regularly-scheduled programming after their coverage of NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament that takes place on March 16 and March 23, respectively.
Both “The Amazing Race” and “Training Day” are produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
“Undercover Boss,” which had aired on Wednesdays back in December and January, returns to CBS on Friday, Apr. 28 at 8 p.m.
