CBS Shortens Episode Counts for Scripted Shows

CBS has changed up the episode counts for their in-house original shows.

The network has shortened the episode counts for their scripted shows amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Dramas series Blue Bloods, Bull, Magnum P.I., NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans and SEAL Team will each run for 16 episodes while NCIS: Los Angeles and comedy series The Neighborhood will have 18 episodes.

The Unicorn will have 13 episodes for its second season, which was originally planned.

Traditionally, most CBS shows get 24 episodes a season.

All nine shows – which are produced at CBS Studios – will air through the end of the 2020-2021 season, with finales ending in May.

It is rumored that CBS’ other original shows that are filmed at other studios – like Mom and the FBI franchise – will also have shorter seasons.

The shorter episode counts come as extensive safety protocols were put into place on set of shows as they got back to work amid the pandemic.

New seasons of CBS are scheduled to start premiering this week.
