Apple today released tvOS 12.0.1, a minor update for the tvOS operating system designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models. tvOS 12.0.1 comes just one week after Apple released tvOS 12, the latest version of tvOS.
tvOS 12.0.1 can be downloaded over the air through the Settings app on the Apple TV by going to System -> Software Update. Apple TV owners who have automatic software updates turned on will be upgraded to tvOS 12.0.1 automatically.
It is not clear what features or bug fixes are included in tvOS 12.0.1, but given that it's a minor 12.x.x update, it has likely been released to address issues discovered in the tvOS 12 update.
If we discover what's new in tvOS 12.0.1, we'll update this post with info, but Apple often provides little detail on tvOS updates.
tvOS 12.0.1 follows tvOS 12, an update that introduced support for higher-quality Dolby Atmos sound, zero sign-on, and new aerial screensavers created in collaboration with the International Space Station.

The 5th generation only shows the screensavers that have been recorded in 4K.
I miss the London, Hawaii, New Zealand, and Great Wall of China ones on my 5th gen. I have the 4th gen in a spare room and this still displays them.
Haven't tested it yet, but there are signals that tvOS 12.0.1 fixed it.
Make sure you have the settings to download screensavers daily. Maybe your ATV hasn't picked up the newest yet.
