CBS has announced its fall primetime lineup for later this year. Most of your old favorites are headed back, and there are a couple of new series making their debut.

And CBS is taking every opportunity to remind folks that it's their turn to broadcast the Super Bowl, with the 55th installment currently scheduled for Feb. 7, 2021.

"We're excited to come off another season as America's Most Watched Network and, despite the obvious challenges around us, put together another winning lineup," Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment, said in a press release. "Next season, we'll have five breakout returning freshman series and three compelling new shows placed into a schedule with the incredible stability for which CBS is so well known. Couple that with our broadcast of SUPER BOWL LV next February, and CBS is simply loaded with a lineup that will clearly appeal to both our advertising partners and our loyal viewers."

CBS has two new shows coming this fall. B Positive stars Thomas Middleditch ( Silicon Valley ) and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford ( Masters of Sex , You Can't Take It With You ). It airs Thursday at 8:30 p.m. Eastern. And at 8 p.m. Sunday you'll find The Equalizer , with Queen Latifah.

And coming later in the fall season CBS will debut Clarice , from executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet and staring Rebecca Breeds, and we'll also see the return of S.W.A.T. and Undercover Boss .
