Big Four midseason 2024 premieres, returns: ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox

Hollywood’s labor strife is safely in the entertainment industry’s rearview mirror — and the Big Four networks are shifting their sights to the imminent winter television season.

ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox have announced launch dates for their new and returning comedies, dramas and game shows, some of which are just now premiering after being delayed by the now-settled WGA and SAG-AFTRA work stoppages that wreaked havoc on the networks’ fall schedules.
