Is a new episode of SWAT on tonight? (November 26)

Friday nights have become all about Hondo and his team. We’re waiting to see the team back at its best, but is SWAT going to air new tonight?

CBS always has a great lineup on Friday nights. We currently have a full night of crime dramas, and that starts with a new episode of SWAT.

There is a bit of bad news. There isn’t going to be a new episode of the series tonight. This comes off the back of a lack of new episode last week. We’re still waiting to see how the team will bond again with Hondo back as leader.

There isn’t even going to be a rerun tonight. CBS is putting on a couple of half-hour specials during the 8 p.m. ET/PT timeslot. There will be reruns of Magnum PI and Blue Bloods to follow.

Why isn’t there a new episode of SWAT on tonight?

The lack of new episode this week is understandable. It is Black Friday, and there’s no way the big networks are going to risk new episodes of top TV shows at this time. People like to spend the holidays with their families or they’ll be out doing the late-night Black Friday shopping. CBS isn’t going to risk the live ratings tonight.

We don’t have to wait too long for a new episode of the series. Hondo and the team will be back on Friday, Dec. 3 at the usual time.

The new episode is titled “Keep the Faith,” and will see Hondo and the team pulled into a dangerous case that involves the Russian mob and a stockpile of cash. We’ll also get to see Daniel Sr. return. He has something painful about his past to share with Hondo.

SWAT returns with an all-new episode on Friday, Dec. 3 at 8/7c on CBS. Catch up with the current season on Paramount+ right now.
