(from CBS's press release, March 2018) CBS announced today that the Network's top two freshman dramas, SEAL TEAM and S.W.A.T., are being renewed for the 2018-2019 broadcast season. The pickups follow the previous renewal of the top new series of the season, YOUNG SHELDON. Based on current Nielsen ratings, YOUNG SHELDON, SEAL TEAM and S.W.A.T. comprise three of the top five most-watched new shows. "These exciting new dramas have been sensational additions to our schedule, are striking all the right notes creatively, and really connect with our viewers," said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. "SEAL TEAM has strengthened our Wednesday line up - routinely winning its time period with over 10 million viewers and allowing us to build an even more powerful night, while S.W.A.T. has improved Thursday's 10:00 PM hour by over 2.5 million viewers versus last season. Additionally, both are among the very top streamers on our digital platforms, including CBS.com and CBS All Access. We congratulate the talented casts and producers on an amazing year as we look forward to their return next season." SEAL TEAM is the Network's #1 new drama in viewers (10.23m) and is tied with S.W.A.T. in adults 18-49 (1.8), while S.W.A.T. ranks second in viewers (9.80m). Inspired by the classic television series and feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as the locally born and raised sergeant tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, Shawn Ryan, Justin Lin, Neal Moritz, Marney Hochman, Danielle Woodrow and Pavun Shetty serve as executive producers.
