What is the grand CBS plan for fall?
Well, they canceled a whole bunch of stuff yesterday, and they're switching the nights for "CSI: New York" and "CSI: Miami." They'll also move "Survivor" from Thursdays to Wednesdays, and move "Big Bang Theory" from Monday to Thursday. Following "Big Bang" will be a new William Shatner sitcom called "$#*! My Dad Says."
Here's how things shake out (new shows in bold):
Monday: Starting at 8pm are the sitcoms "How I Met Your Mother," "Two & a Half Men," and "Rules of Engagement." At 9:30 is a new Chuck Lorre (Big Bang Theory) sitcom called "Mike & Molly," about a plus-sized couple who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and date. At 10pm CBS will launch a remake of "Hawaii Five-O" starring Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Daniel Dae Kim ("Lost").
Tuesday: Why tinker with success? "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," and "The Good Wife" are doing just fine on Tuesdays, and nothing changes there.
Wednesday: "Survivor" will air at 8pm, followed by "Criminal Minds." At 10pm is a new show called "The Defenders," a legal dramedy with Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell as Las Vegas lawyers.
Thursday: "Big Bang Theory" at 8pm (where it goes up against "Community" on NBC), followed by "$#*! My Dad Says" (based on the very popular Twitter feed @shitmydadsays, and pronounced "Bleep My Dad Says"). After that we keep "CSI" at 9pm and "The Mentalist" at 10pm.
Friday: "Medium" moves into 8pm, with "CSI: NY" at 9pm, and a new cop show called "Blue Bloods" at 10pm. "Blue Bloods" is about a mulit-generational family of New York cops, and stars Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg.
Saturday: This stays the same -- random repeats and the occasional "48 Hours Mystery."
Sunday: "Amazing Race" at 8pm, "Undercover Boss" at 9pm, and "CSI: Miami" at 10pm. Of course, "60 Minutes" is back at 7pm.
