CBS Unveils Its 2013-2014 Primetime Schedule

CBS has released its fall and mid-season schedules, and with all the other networks taking fairly drastic measures to improve their situation, CBS is making an unusual number of moves for a network that's been fairly conservative over the years. The most striking absence here is "Mike & Molly," a hit for CBS, that's not on the immediate fall schedule (it will likely return at mid-season or replace whichever sitcom fails first). The network is clearly preparing itself for the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" after next season, and like "Two and Half Men" (and it's not like "Big Bang Theory" is a spring chicken, either) but trying out several new sitcoms, including Chuck Lorre's "Mom" with Anna Faris, given a plush spot after "2 Broke Girls" on Monday, and the Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar comedy, which CBS has enough faith in to anchor the 9 p.m. hour on Thursday (and more importantly, pit "Two and a Half Men" directly against NBC's "The Michael J. Fox Show."

To make room for a two-hour comedy block on Thursdays, which will go head-to-head against NBC's two-hour comedy block, CBS has also moved "Person of Interest" -- one of only two network sophomore series that improved on its ratings year to year -- to Tuesdays at 10, giving that night a full roster of very popular procedurals for the old folks. Likewise, "Hawaii Five-0" movies Fridays to make room for a two new dramas on Monday, "Hostages" in the fall, and Josh Holloway's "Intelligence" at midseason.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned

    By the way, looking at the header pic I have to ask; why on earth is the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" on the old Drummond penthouse set from "Diff'rent Strokes"?

  • Slash

    Eh, I watch Elementary and Person of Interest and I don't hate The Big Bang Theory. I started watching The Good Wife and then sorta lost interest on that one, not sure why.

    The rest ... ew. But whatever. A lot of TV watching is habit. Sometimes you get home from work and you just wanna watch something familiar. Even if it's not very great.

    But 2 Broke Girls is particularly awful. The few times I've accidentally seen it for a half a minute, it was ... just terrible. Not at all funny. Not even a little bit. I'm convinced the only people who watch it are men who stare at the brunette one's bewbs for 22 minutes. That has to be the only reason it's still on. Because it is not funny.

  • Xtacle Steve

    Is it safe to assume that "We Are Men" is a traditional laugh track sitcom that takes an edgy and interesting look at the differences between men and women? For example, men leave the toilet seats up and womens be shoppin'.

  • Brooke Michelle

    Also, women talk too much. And men hate sharing feelings. I hope they go into that.

  • SilverDeb

    Penny looks very pretty up there.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I also thought that the only thing on the lineup here that interests me is that dress.

    But Johnny Galecki looks like he's ready to play the villain in Wild Wild West II.

  • So I barely glanced at the header image and completely missed that it's most of the Big Bang Theory cast. On a closer look, you're absolutely right. Also, I covet that dress.

  • SilverDeb

    Yeah, I generally hate wearing dresses, but I would wear the heck out of that one.

  • Wait... The Mentalist is still on? How?

  • Leigh

    I loved it in the beginning, but now every time I try to watch it, I fall asleep. The Red John-centric episodes are still pretty good tv, but you have the other 20 episodes a season to bore the crap out of you.

  • bleujayone

    "Sooooo....You schtill von't talk, eh? Vell, vee haff vays off persvading people like you. Vee vill make you vatch zee entihare CBS Fall lineup oowntil your beady eeys glaze offer undt your deefenses fall!"

    *struggle*..."Ugh. Hit me with whatever crappy television you like! I'll never crack and I'll NEVER give you what you want!

    *sigh...I deed not vish to to do this, but you forced my handt. G√ľnther...Reinhold.... Take heem to zee NBC room!"

    "NOOOOOO!!! NOT THE NBC ROOM! YOU MONSTER!!!!! OKAY! I'LL TALK....I'LL TALK!!!!!"

    "Ja, I know you vill."

    "You don't have to do this!!!"

    "Nein, eet eez too late for mercy....."

  • Fabius_Maximus

    NBC? That would be like a blow to the head. As a rule, never hit 'em in the head. It causes them to mess up the details.

  • Some Guy

    But NBC has zee Hannibal und die Kommunity...

    Simple solution: No NBC on Thursdays.

  • Suzy Lee

    Damn, according to your FB comment on this post, I am a grandparent! I thoroughly enjoy TGW (as everyone should), Elementary (I know, procedural and all, but the writing of the characters is good, the chemistry between Lee Miller and Liu is fantastic, and everything is so grim-pretty to look at), and Hawaii Five-O (... have you seen the cast? HAVE YOU? Attractiveness all around).
    Oh well, I may just embrace my inner granny and go settle in Portland, since it's the place where young people go to retire.

  • Siege

    I'm with you on H50. I think the main guy is contractually obligated to remove his shirt at least once an episode. Now if only they'd extend that clause to Scot Caan...

  • Mrs. Julien

    I just love Scott Caan. He's got all of his father's nervous energy and he's adorable.

  • Siege

    Yes! He's like a tiny, furry, angry teddy bear! I'm glad SOMEONE understands my attraction, because no one else I know does.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Don't you need to be a hipster to move there?

  • Suzy Lee

    You can be whatever you want to be apparently! As long as it's not too San Francisco.

  • AudioSuede

    Wow.

    There is not a single show in that entire lineup that I would watch for any reason.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    You might change your mind if you, you know, bothered to watch one. Person of Interest, The Good Wife and Elementary are as good or better than anything else on TV.

  • koko temur

    the good wife is pretty good, actually... But i agree with you on the rest.

  • Rocabarra

    Yup I was just going to say the same. Two thumbs up for the Good Wife, but the rest can just quietly disappear for all I care.

  • FrayedMachine

    I was thinking the same thing.
