CBS inaugurated its first Forecast season in the Summer of 1940. This was another strategic move. CBS's prime-time slots were invariably occupied with one or more of their nightly, longer-running successful programs. In this instance it was Lux Radio Theatre, a solid, already long-running, highly popular CBS drama and movie anthology. Most major productions broke for the Summer. So rather than fish around for something to keep the slot warm for three months, CBS essentially put the onus on themselves with these two seasons of Forecast. It was a clever, well-calculated gamble. Forecast's opener for its first season was a half-hour of Variety followed by a half-hour of Drama. Airing from both coasts during most of the Forecast broadcasts, the variety program, The Battle of Music aired from CBS's New York Studios. The dramatic test program, The American Theatre, aired from CBS's Hollywood Studios.

Whenever CBS aired a double bill they would generally air the New York broadcast first in the line-up, followed by the Hollywood broadcast. Given the prime-time Lux Radio Theatre slot allotted to Forecast, it made better sense to air the East Coast broadcast first.
