ABC, CBS Join NBC in Delaying TV Seasons

Mirroring NBC, both CBS and ABC will delay the start of the 2001-02 season until the week of Sept. 24. CBS’s Wolf Lake, originally set to debut this past Wednesday, will now premiere this coming Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. ET following the second installment of The Amazing Race. Both episodes will be repeated on Friday, Sept. 21 from 8-10 p.m. ET. Although the eye net’s Big Brother 2 will still air its final episode on Thursday, Sept. 20, the live telecast has been pushed back to 9 p.m. ET leading out of an 8 p.m. edition of 48 Hours. For fans of the soon-to-conclude reality series the next eviction episode will air this coming Tuesday.

At press time CBS has still not made a decision on when The 53rd Annual Emmy Awards will air. Nor has the network decided when their daytime line-up and The Late Show with David Letterman will return.
