CBS isn’t playing around much with its schedule at midseason — it’s pretty solid, after all — so the network’s announcement amounts mostly to setting return dates for “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.”
Both shows will be back in mid-February. “Survivor’s” 20th installment, an all-star “Heroes vs. Villains” game, will debut with a two-hour episode on Thursday, Feb. 11. The 16th season of “The Amazing Race” will follow three nights later on Sunday, Feb. 14.
Valentine’s Day will also bring the time-period premiere of “Undercover Boss,” which is getting a post-Super Bowl debut. It will follow “The Amazing Race” at 9 p.m. on Sundays, the spot previously occupied by “Three Rivers.” “Cold Case” will slide back to 10 p.m.
CBS has also slotted a couple of specials for Thursday night in the run-up to the “Survivor” premiere. Jeff Probst’s “Live for the Moment” will air Jan. 28, as previously announced, and on Feb. 4, the network will air a special currently called “Surviving Survivor” that will look back at past contestants and memorable moments on the series.
Other than that, everything is staying put. The network also has more episodes of “Rules of Engagement” and a drama called “The Bridge” in reserve but hasn’t given them a home yet.
