By Daniel S. Levine - November 17, 2019 09:24 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 When CBS unveiled its 2020 winter schedule on Nov. 11, there were a few changes that had to be made to make room for some new shows. One of those changes was kicking NCIS: New Orleans out of its familiar Tuesday-at-10 timeslot so the new Dick Wofl series FBI: Most Wanted could air in its place. NCIS: New Orleans will now air on Sundays, taking over the slot vacated by Madam Secretary. FBI: Most Wanted is the first spin-off from Wolf's FBI, which only debuted last season. The new series will premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 10 p.m. ET. That way, FBI can act as a lead-in to the new show. The mothership NCIS series will remain at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesdays. NCIS: New Orleans, which has aired on Tuesdays since it debuted in 2014, will air on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET beginning Sunday, FEb. 16. It will air right after new episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles in the slot formally held by Madam Secretary.
