The move will help promote the three shows with new audiences as they return to CBS on Nov. 16 with their season premieres. 

In June, CBS broadcast the BET Awards and the simulcast drew more than 3.7 million, with 1.9 million watching on CBS. A year earlier 3.79 million viewers watched the BET awards on eight Viacom cable channels.

Shows from BET are also appearing on CBS All Access, which is being rebranded as Paramount Plus.
