CBS today unveiled its 2016-2017 primetime lineup, featuring three new comedies, five new dramas and 21 returning series. The new series will join a lineup that will finish the current season as America’s most-watched network in viewers for the 13th time in 14 years, including the last eight years straight. The Network will also finish #1 in adults 25-54 and adults 18-49. In 2016-2017, CBS will expand its comedy lineup, increasing the number of comedies from four to eight, compared to last fall, and programming two two-hour blocks on Mondays and Thursdays.

The new fall comedies are: KEVIN CAN WAIT, starring Kevin James as a newly retired police officer who faces tougher challenges at home with his wife and three kids than he ever did on the streets; MAN WITH A PLAN, starring Golden Globe Award winner Matt LeBlanc as a contractor who starts spending more time with his kids when his wife goes back to work and discovers the truth every parent eventually realizes: his little angels are maniacs; and THE GREAT INDOORS, starring Joel McHale as a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine who becomes the desk-bound boss to a group of eager millennials in the publication’s digital edition.
