CBS elevates NCIS: Sydney to key slot

NCIS: Sydney looks to have had a win due to the Writer’s and SAG-AFTRA strikes in the USA.

Already announced as being part of CBS’ Fall schedule, now the show is getting a further promotion.

Originally, NCIS: Sydney was supposed to follow an NCIS repeat on Mondays and air in NCIS: Hawaii‘s Monday 10pm slot.

But it will now run Tuesdays at 8pm where NCIS has run for much of its 18 seasons.

That also means NCIS: Sydney will not have to face NFL football on Monday.

The Aussie-made series from Endemol Shine is one of the few original scripted series in Fall schedules this season, due to the strikes.

The world premiere will be in Australia on Paramount+ on Friday, 10 November and on CBS the following Tuesday.

Plans for Free to Air on 10 are yet to be announced.
