DESCRIPTION:
(from CBS's press release, November 2018) CBS is building a strong roster of reality programming at midseason with the premieres of two new unscripted competitions and the return of three fan favorites. On Sunday, Feb. 3, immediately following SUPER BOWL LIII (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT; time is approximate after post-game coverage), the new competition series THE WORLD'S BEST debuts with host James Corden and judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill. The first-of-its-kind global talent competition features award-winning acts from every genre imaginable, from every corner of the planet. They not only have to impress the aforementioned American judges, but will also need to break through the "wall of the world," featuring 50 of the world's most accomplished experts from every field of entertainment. Only one act will ultimately be crowned THE WORLD'S BEST. After the post-Super Bowl premiere, the show moves to Wednesdays beginning Feb. 6.
