CBS on Tuesday announced the November primetime premiere dates for 10 scripted series. The five dramas and five comedies span time periods on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights. Additional premiere dates for November will be announced shortly.

The new comedy joining the CBS schedule on Thursday, Nov. 5, is “B Positive,” from award-winning executive producer Chuck Lorre and creator Marco Pennette, starring Emmy Award-nominee Thomas Middleditch and Tony Award-winner Annaleigh Ashford. The series is inspired by Pennette’s personal experience as a transplant recipient.

The returning shows include No. 1 series “NCIS” on Tuesday, Nov. 17; No. 1 comedy “Young Sheldon” and No. 2 comedy “Mom” on Thursday, Nov. 5; Monday’s popular one-hour comedy block of “The Neighborhood” and No. 1 new comedy “Bob ♥ Abishola,” followed by the hit drama “All Rise” on Monday, Nov. 16; Sunday’s two most-watched entertainment programs “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “NCIS: New Orleans” on Sunday, Nov. 8; and the two-hour premiere of “S.W.A.T.” on Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Also, classic “NCIS” launches Sunday, Nov. 8, featuring fan-favorite episodes from the drama’s previous 17 seasons, creating a three-hour block of “NCIS” following “60 Minutes” on Sunday nights.

These programs join the previously announced season premieres of “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours,” which have already debuted, and “The Amazing Race,” on Wednesday, Oct. 14.
