Seven more episodes ordered for the new drama.
November 17, 2017
CBS today extended the first season of S.W.A.T., ordering seven additional episodes to bring its total up to 20 - good enough to be considered a full season. The move makes S.W.A.T. the network's second rookie drama of the 2017-2018 season to get a full season top-up.
Shemar Moore stars in the Los Angeles-based series, which follows a former Marine tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that acts as the city's last stop in law enforcement. Raised on the streets, he is torn between his loyalty to his roots and his allegiance to his new brothers in blue as he works to bridge the divide between his two worlds.
Premiering earlier this month as a late entry to the fall lineup, S.W.A.T. is off to a decent start through three episodes. While not a ratings standout, it has kept up with its competition in the 10:00pm time slot on Thursday nights.

Wow. I'm gonna go ahead and guess that CBS doesn't actually watch the shows they put out.

I like the characters and the show, but I think the show would be better off without Hondo and the Boss dating. I don't find any chemistry between them. I usually watch ABC's HTGAWM in this time slot so I DVR this show.

I have only seen 2 episodes, and this show hasnt grabbed my attention. Id rather watch a show like The Brave or SEAL Team. Maybe utll get better.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwn. Perhaps the most boring, politically undertoned military or police procedural show on TV. It should have been cancelled after episode 1.

What comments! This is a simulated show, which means non true. The show is providing the entertainment that the people are wanting. If the realization was actually portrayed as life is, then the show would not be a hit. As far as Shemar Moore goes, he has the opportunity to use his talents to achieve his careers's popularity while he can, don't hate him. Yes this may be standard stuff, but it is what the public wants. Entertainment means relax and enjoy and don't take this show to heart. TV after all is fantasy.

This show does a terrible job of showing how S.W.A.T. actually operates and contributes to the general public's false narrative of Police.. Making breaches without headgear, not wearing tactical gear when going into a call. Chasing suspects down streets and having open gun battles with civilians all around the path of fire, etc, etc. NO officers would ever do any of those things. Whoever the technical advisor is need to be fired, they are clueless. I also agree that this is a pretty weak PC version of the real show.

I like this version of S.W.A.T. despite all the negative reviews about racism I have seen. It is a typical CBS procedural which I like to watch as long as it isn't the only thing I have to watch. It would probably have been picked up just because they cast Shemar Moore - just like SEAL Team and David Boreanaz. Either way, it works for me.

This show is a P.C rehash of the popular 70's show and 2003 feature film..This show stars Shemar Moore who rather than be on another season of Criminal Minds decided to do this dreck where his boss is a woman because we Men can't make the big decisions and personally I think Shemar would rather host a KKK rally than have a female boss..This show is O.K, but pretty standard stuff!!
