The 2016 Upfronts: What We’ll Be Watching This Season on CBS!By Delaina Dixon | May 19, 2016 | Entertainment
At CBS, the buzzword is “essential” as “America’s Most Watched network” continues to reach viewers across several demos. CBS digital is going where no man has gone with original series, including a new Star Trek, and for fans of the recently departed The Good Wife, a spin-off is coming with original cast member Cush Jumbo ΓÇô both on CBS All Access next year. CBS is also bringing to its lineup anticipated dramas Bull, a show based on Dr. Phil‘s first gig as a trial consultant and Doubt, a legal drama with our fave Dule Hill.
Here are the shows we can’t wait to see on CBS this upcoming season.
Man With A Plan (Mondays)
What’s It About? Matt LeBlanc becomes a stay-at-home dad who has to outsmart his three millennial children, without losing his wits.
Our Divalicious Take. It what’s happened to Friends‘ Joey when he grew up … if Joey hadn’t pursued his career in acting, went into the family business and had kids. We love seeing that sparkle that’s always made Matt a #WBWD we can’t resist.
Pure Genius (Thursdays)
WhatΓÇÖs It About? A tech billionaire is determined to change the face of medicine with the most technically-enhanced hospital ever built. But he’ll quickly learn he may be its most challenging patient.
Our Divalicious Take. Let’s hear it for a medical revolution! It will be cool to see what can be done with unparalleled technology, unlimited funds and an unbridled heart. We’re glad to see this supporting cast may be one of CBS’ most diverse with Aaron Jennings, Reshma Shetty and Brenda Song co-starring.
The Great Indoors (Thursdays)
What’s It About? The face of a outdoor living magazine has to come back to the office to tame the millennials running the publication.
Our Divalicious Take. Community alum Joel McHale is taking on his biggest wildlife species, which includes young actors Christine Ko and Shaun Brown.
Training Day (midseason)
WhatΓÇÖs It About? Newcomer Justin Cornwell is the new police trainee who’s learning the how to dispense justice unscrupulously, from Bill Paxton (pictured up top).
Our Divalicious Take. The roles may seemed reversed, but Justin’s TV persona has a goal of his own: to train his rogue mentor back to the right side of the law.
