CBS doesn't call itself "America's Most Watched Network" for nothing. One of the big five broadcast networks, and with the addition of their video-on-demand CBS All Access shows, CBS is a major player when it comes to new shows in 2019. This is a list of the best new CBS and CBS All Access shows, ranked by fans who couldn't wait to see what the Columbia Broadcasting System put out next. Along with channels like NBC and ABC, channels like CBS feature some of the best shows on broadcast TV right now.

The 2019 CBS new show lineup has a little of everything. There've got new reality shows, dramas, action, and even a sitcom! Both of the upcoming reality shows on CBS in 2019 are competition based - one on talents like singing in The World's Best and the other is on the contestant's skill in getting through an obstacle course in Million Dollar Mile. There are lots of new action shows in 2019, but CBS stands out as the only broadcast network with an entry that isn't also a drama. Blood & Treasure is pure action-adventure, pairing an antique dealer with an art thief and sending them across the globe on a thrilling mission. Also thrilling is the return of The Twilight Zone, arriving on CBS All Access on April 1st.
