Tuesday, January 7
        10PM: FBI: Most Wanted (Series Premiere)

        8PM: Undercover Boss (Season 9 Premiere)
        9PM: Criminal Minds (Season 15 Premiere, Two Hours)

Friday, February 7
        8PM: MacGyver (Season 4 Premiere)
        9PM: Hawaii Five-0 (Time Slot Debut)

Wednesday, February 12
        8PM: Survivor (Season 40 Premiere, Two Hours)
        10PM: Criminal Minds (New Episode, Special Time)

Sunday, February 16
        10PM: NCIS: New Orleans (Time Slot Debut)

Wednesday, February 19
        9PM: Criminal Minds (Series Finale, Two Hours)

Missing from the schedule at the moment are new comedy Broke, returning comedy Man With a Plan and veteran reality series The Amazing Race. They are expected to join the schedule at a later date.

Moreover, SEAL Team and Magnum P.I. are currently displaced from their current time slots to make room for the new seasons of Criminal Minds and MacGyver. After those dramas conclude their seasons, SEAL Team and Magnum P.I. will return in their regular time slots.

And finally, NCIS: New Orleans moves to Sunday nights to make a new two-hour NCIS block with NCIS: Los Angeles after Madam Secretary concludes its sixth and final season. That also allows FBI: Most Wanted to be paired with its parent show on Tuesday nights. Meanwhile, new drama Tommy takes over the Thursday night time slot from Evil after it finishes its 13 episode run. Evil has already been renewed for a second season and was planned to produce shorter seasons.
