The World's Best is coming to CBS early next year, so viewers won't have to wait much longer for its debut.
CBS has announced the new global talent competition series will premiere immediately after Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at approximately 10PM ET/PT.
After its premiere, the show will air Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT on February 6 and 13 before moving to Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT beginning February 20 due to the return of Survivor, which will premiere its upcoming 38th season in the franchise's traditional 8PM ET/PT time period that same night.
According to Burnett, "this groundbreaking series is like the Olympics of talent shows."
In order to advance in the competition, each act must not only impress Hill, RuPaul and Barrymore, but the performer or performers must also captivate the "wall of the world" comprised of 50 experts in every field of entertainment.
In the end, only one act will be crowned champion during The World's Best finale on Wednesday, March 20 at 9PM ET/PT.
