Hunted [CBS]

CBS’ new reality competition series “Hunted” will premiere in one of the year’s most coveted timeslots.

The network confirms that “Hunted” will debut following the AFC Championship game on January 22, 2017. The evening NFL conference championship game routinely ranks as one of the biggest TV events of the year, ensuring considerable lead-in support for CBS’ new series.

Following the special premiere, “Hunted” will move to its regular Wednesday at 8PM timeslot. The first regular timeslot airing is set for January 25.

“HUNTED challenges ordinary people to go on the run as fugitives and evade capture by an elite team of investigators pursuing them,” says CBS of its new show.
