"48 Hours" investigates the most intriguing crime and justice cases that touch on all areas of the human experience including greed and passion. For more than 30 seasons, "48 Hours" has developed a rich history of original reporting and impact journalism that has helped exonerate wrongly convicted people, caused cold cases to be reopened and solved, and along the way changed lives. 

Our new season premiered Saturday, September 12, 2020, on CBS.


"48 Hours" airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Our in-depth approach has earned the program and its teams numerous awards including three Peabodys, 21 Emmys, six RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Awards and two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Awards.    

***DVR USER ALERT***: Our show name now is simply "48 Hours". If you use a series or season pass on your DVR, you may need to reset so you don't miss a mystery!
