There are no screens for finding the best stocks to sell covered calls on that I know of. I built my own but as with eTrade you have to enter a list of stocks to check. On reason, I suspect, is that the list is extremely volatile in part because the inputs like expiration date and strike price and not continuous but discrete steps.

Not too long ago the CBOE "improved" their option chain pages making even harder to download the data https://www.cboe.com/delayed_quotes/vix/quote_table

I have not found any other site where you can download option chains for free.
