Broadcast TV Unscripted Scorecard 2020: What's New, Renewed and Canceled

From 'Survivor' to 'The Masked Singer' and everything in between, The Hollywood Reporter tracks the latest reality series across ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and The CW for the 2019-20 season.

The broadcast networks made a somewhat bigger push into unscripted programming in the 2018-19 season, and it paid off with new hits like The Masked Singer and America's Got Talent: The Champions, while reliable franchises like Survivor and The Bachelor continued to perform.

Below is The Hollywood Reporter's guide to keep track of what will return in 2019-20, which shows have been canceled and what new series will be added to each network's unscripted roster. Bookmark this page, as it will be updated regularly based on the latest information. Shows scheduled to air in summer 2019 are considered part of the current season.

Unscripted shows also operate on a somewhat different cycle than that of scripted series, so decisions on some shows likely will not come until after the May upfronts.

Renewed shows are noted below in bold. Shows owned by a network's partner studio — NBC and now Fox have dedicated alternative units — are noted with an asterisk.
