Reviewing CBS' The Red Line

CBS’ act of contrition continues with The Red Line, an eight-hour limited series that further addresses critics who branded the network a bastion of white males after its 2017 fall lineup was announced. Airing in two-hour installments on four successive Sundays, it starts Noah Wyle as an openly gay high school history teacher whose African-American husband is gunned down by a white cop. Our review is here.

Also, NBC5 emulates its corporate parent network’s Today show with a two-women anchor team. Laura Harris, who arrived at the Fort Worth-based station last summer, joins longtime incumbent Deborah Ferguson. More details are on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Plus, Thursday’s D-FW Nielsen ratings “snapshot” has the numbers for opening night of the NFL draft and the Dallas Stars’ first Stanley Cup playoff match with the St. Louis Blues.
