Fall 2020 reality TV schedule and guide

This will be a fall TV season unlike any other, thanks to production shut-downs and delays over the past six months. In reality TV, the biggest change is the lack of a new season of Survivor, for the first time in 19 years. Yet many familiar reality shows, from The Masked Singer to Dancing with the Stars, Halloween Baking Championship to Shark Tank, will be back on the air—though some may look and feel quite different.

This reality show schedule lists officially announced debut dates and time slots for both new and returning, prime-time reality TV and documentary shows that debut this fall (and beyond). It’s frequently updated.

Times are ET/PT, and were accurate at the time of publication, though because TV networks and streaming services frequently change their schedules—especially now!—always check your guide or other TV listings.

For any reality shows that premiered before Sept. 1, 2020, such as Love Island or Love Fraud, see the summer 2020 schedule.

Program descriptions in quotation marks indicate that text is directly from network press releases, the show’s website, or other official materials.
