Coming almost a month earlier than they did last year, CBS has officially announced the premiere dates for all of its upcoming fall series.

The network will be taking less of a staggered approach to its premiere rollout this year than it did in 2018 as well, with 12 scripted series returning in the first week of the new season and 5 new series making their debuts the same week. “The Neighborhood” will be kicking things off, premiering Monday, Sept. 23 in the same 8 p.m. time slot it inhabited this season.

“The Neighborhood” will be followed by the series premieres of “Bob Hearts Abishola” at 8:30 p.m. and “All Rise” at 9 p.m., while “Bull” will be rounding out the night in its usual 10 p.m. hour. The following Tuesday night will feature the returns of “NCIS,” “FBI,” and “NCIS: New Orleans,” as all three dramas return to the same night and time slots that they aired in throughout the 2018-19 season.

Wednesday, Sept. 25 will be filled by the 90-minute season premiere of “Survivor” and the 90-minute “Big Brother” season finale, which will be airing back-to-back. Meanwhile, the network will be debuting its new Thursday lineup in its entirety the night of Sept. 26, as “Young Sheldon” moves to “The Big Bang Theory’s” 8 p.m. time slot. It’ll be the lead-in for the series premiere of “The Unicorn” at 8:30 p.m., followed by the return of “Mom” at 9 p.m.

The series premieres of the Patricia Heaton-led comedy, “Carol’s Second Act,” and the new drama, “Evil,” will cap off the night for the network.

“Hawaii Five-O,” “Magnum P.I.,” and “Blue Bloods” occupy the primetime hours the following Friday night, while “60 Minutes,” “God Friended Me,” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” are set to premiere their new seasons on Sunday, Sept. 29. “SEAL Team,” “S.W.A.T.,” and “Madam Secretary,” will premiere the following week.
