    Evil returns in June for its second season. But if you want to see it you will have to subscribe to Paramount +. The greedy *%^#$!@'s.

    Seal Team is at least airing 6 (?) episodes on CBS this fall, then moving to Paramount+.

    Whish they would do the same with Evil.

    I guess broadcast tv is the new screening room for which shows get streamed and which ones dont.

    Or are these borderline shows that would not have made the cut on broadcast but are getting a lease on life via streaming?

    I think both. Clarice might have been canceled, but Evil was renewed before this idea was conceived. Covid changed the plan.

    Both shows seem a little creative for CBS, which generally applies to streaming over network.

    I have no problem if CBS wants to get paid for better content as long as it is better. It's been years since they put out much of anything significantly good that i can think of in drama.

    Exactly that. This isn't about greed. This is about content. My guess is that Evil was a bubble show that in normal times would have been canceled. But because CBS now needs additional content to flesh out their streaming offerings, they were willing to renew it but probably with a reduced budget.

    I don't mind something like Evil moving to streaming...After a season, evaluate, decide to air, stream, cancel.

    Now Seal Team is a bit ridiculous if you've had invested 6 seasons of watching it to have to then subscribe to continue. Business sense it makes, but as a viewer, a pain.

    I really need to do some more research but one reason why I like TiVo is the season passes. I don't need to keep track of when things start.

    I liked Evil but forgot about it....and probably wouldn't have thought about it until this thread.

    Is there good online season pass type thing that would notify me of when streaming shows start?

    I never looked in to it but isn't the Tivo Stream 4k suppose to have Tivo functionality but for streaming services?

    there was another thread that talked about tracking shows, I started using the JustWatch site/app and that seems to indicate when a new season will start streaming.

    I've been watching Seal team since the beginning, like the show, but not enough to sign up for paramount... once a year I might sign up for a month and knock out a few shows.... otherwise eventually these shows end up on dvd and I can either get them from Netflix dvd or maybe the library.

    Seal Team six was on the bubble for the last few seasons and was lucky to last as long as it did on the network. It would be canceled if it didn't move to streaming so for anyone who invested 6 seasons in it they would probably be happier to have it continue on the streaming service then for it to be canceled.

    Anything that lets David Boreanaz continue his streak of continual employment (going all the way back to Buffy The Vampire Slayer) gets my support. That's gotta be some kind of record in the TV industry.
