The CBS Sunday Movie (also known at various times as the CBS Sunday Night Movie) was a weekly made-for-TV and feature film showcase series carried by CBS until the end of the 2005-06 television season, when it was replaced with drama series. It was the last of the weekly Sunday night movie showcases aired by the Big Three television networks to be canceled, outside of special event premieres and the network's previous run of the Hallmark Hall of Fame film anthology.
