CBS is the first network out of the gate with premiere dates for the 2013-14 TV season, and it will kick things off with the Season 27 premiere of Survivor.

Premiere Week officially arrives, however, the day after the Eye hosts the Neil Patrick Harris-hosted Primetime Emmy Awards, beginning with its rejiggered Monday sitcom lineup — opening Sept. 23 with How I Met Your Mother‘s hour-long final season premiere — and which now is paired with the 13-episode thriller Hostages.
