CHICAGOCBS has announced their fall premiere dates and the network is starting with one of their ratings juggernauts with the launch of “Survivor: Samoa” on September 17th. The network has scheduled four new series for the season - the comedy “Accidentally on Purpose” launches on Monday, September 21st, freshman dramas “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “The Good Wife” start on Tuesday, September 22nd, and “Three Rivers” is the last new show to premiere on Sunday, October 4th.
