CBS has set its full winter and spring schedule, with three new dramas and the return of “The Amazing Race” joining the lineup. “Undercover Boss” will also return for a brief run, and the network will have an original series airing on Saturdays.

New drama “Training Day,” based on the film of the same name, will take over the 10 p.m. ET/PT Thursday spot in early February after “Pure Genius” finishes. Legal thriller “Doubt” will step into “Code Black’s” Wednesday spot in mid-February. “Ransom” — a co-production with French and Canadian partners about a globe-trotting hostage negotiator — will get a post-NFL premiere on New Year’s Day before settling into a Saturday spot on Jan. 7.

New comedy “Superior Donuts” and second-year drama “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” don’t have premiere dates yet.
