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.

Trailers for the new shows when they are available.
