Yellowstone to premiere in the CBS autumn 2023 lineup.The WGA and SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) strikes have forced CBS and other television networks to alter their anticipated fall schedules. The restructuring started after the authors’ strike, which began on May 2, and has been further complicated by the actors’ strike, which started on July 14.
The decision by CBS to run Yellowstone is wise for both the network and the well-liked drama series. Although these Yellowstone episodes have already been made available, they were not broadcast on broadcast television but rather the Paramount Network. By airing on a popular night following football, Yellowstone will be able to attract new viewers and provide CBS with something exciting to air in the fall. It’s a win-win situation for both CBS and Yellowstone, and it may help the show get more attention while it waits for the start of its fifth and final season.
Other networks are trying hard to adapt their fall schedule during the WGA and SA- AFTRA strikes
Another network is adopting a similar strategy by giving a streaming series its broadcast debut. From August 5 to August 12, ABC will broadcast all of Disney+‘s Ms. Marvel. The MCU has never done this before as a result of several productions ceasing. Networks have also turned to reality television since they are unable to produce fresh scripted programming. Big Brother on CBS usually premieres in late June or early July, but this year it won’t air until August 2. As a result, the show and its three episodes per week will play a key role in CBS’ fall schedule.
These tactical choices may be effective for a short period of time, but they are eventually unsustainable. In reaction to the writer and actor strikes, it is crucial for studios to meet just and equitable demands. Bringing Ms. Marvel to ABC and Yellowstone to CBS are merely short-term fixes that can only be entertaining for so long. Networks and streaming services cannot produce new scripted content that is the foundation of their success without writers and performers.
Where can fans watch the previous episodes of Yellowstone
Deadline reports that CBS will make its broadcast debut by airing past Yellowstone episodes as part of their fall 2023 program. According to the CBS schedule, Yellowstone will air at 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. on NFL single-game Sundays and exclusively at 9:00 p.m. on NFL double-game Sundays. Yellowstone is presently only available on Peacock, so it came as a surprise when CBS found a way to air the Kevin Costner-led show on their network. Insiders claim that the fact that the series is produced by 101 Studio, a subsidiary of CBS’ sibling firm MTV Entertainment Studios, made it possible.
Taylor Sheridan and John Linson together produced Yellowstone. Executive producers include Stephen Kay, David C. Glasser, Bob Yari, Taylor Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, and Kevin Costner.
