CBS and ABC Delay New Season Launch

17 September 2001

Networks CBS and ABC have followed the example of rival NBC [WAMN: 13-Sep-01] by shifting the start of their new seasons back a week following the events of last week.

Originally scheduled to begin today, the new fall programming line-ups will begin on September 24. New CBS show Wolf Lake, due to launch last Wednesday, will instead be aired for the first time on the same night this week. The network is yet to decide when to show the fifty-third annual Emmy Awards or when The Late Show with David Letterman will return to the screens.
