Why is 'All Rise' Season 2 Episode 9 not airing? 'Safe to Fall' returns to CBS with Emily-Sam courtroom war
CBS's notorious random breaks throughout the ongoing seasons of its television shows are going beyond the 'NCIS' franchise; the latest addition to the slate of shows taking a break randomly being the legal drama 'All Rise'. Going on hiatus almost every alternate week, the second season of the show is once again not airing tonight. And this comes just a few weeks after its previous hiatus. Infuriating as it might be for fans, there's a perfectly solid explanation, we're sure. Read on to find out why 'All Rise' is not airing and when the show returns next to CBS.
To begin with, 'All Rise' isn't the only show not airing on CBS tonight, 'Bull' Season 5 is taking a hiatus this Monday too. Both the shows are airing repeat telecasts of older episodes from previous seasons, and in case of 'All Rise', CBS is airing Season 1's Episode 12, 'What The Constitution Greens to Me' tonight at the show's designated 9 pm time slot.

The reason behind no new episode is most likely the lack of bulk episodes filmed in advance, given the COVID-19 guidelines networks have had to follow in the recent past. Shows often go on random breaks to fill out the several months-long span with just 22 episodes, so this could be one of those hiatuses too. But hey, this means fans get to catch up with blasts from the past, and the show goes on a little longer than usual. It's a win-win situation.
As for what's awaiting fans for Season 2, the upcoming Episode 9 that was supposed to air tonight, will return to CBS next Monday, February 22, at 9 pm. Titled 'Safe to Fall', the episode sees "Emily and Sam face off in the courtroom in an emotionally gripping case that will determine the fate of a mentally ill young man who attacked his father. Also, due to financial struggles, Rachel crashes at Mark and Amy's place, reigniting Mark and Rachel's flame."
For those wondering what tonight's repeat telecast entails, the episode follows Lola, in the aftermath of her battle with the Commission of Judicial Performance. "Lola questions her own brand of creative justice. And when Benner assigns Lola a politically charged eco-terrorism trial that involves a senator's son, once again, Lola realizes she must trust her instincts in order to succeed."
'All Rise' Season 2 airs on Mondays at 9 pm only on CBS.
