CBS Fall Schedule Revealed: CSI and Good Wife Moved, J.J. Abrams Show Lands on Thursday

Get More: News, Scheduling News, Scoop

The evidence is in: CSI is headed to Hump Day. Meanwhile, The Good Wife has landed herself a hot (?) new date.

CBS unveiled its 2011-12 fall lineup Wednesday morning and the big news is that the long-running CSI is shifting from its age-old Thursday slot to Wednesdays at 10 pm (replacing the axed Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior). The Good Wife is also on the move, relocating from Tuesdays at 10 pm to Sundays at 9 pm.

“It’s our most prestigious show on our most prestigious night,” CBS scheduling chief Kelly Kahl said of Wife‘s new home. “[The fans] will follow the show to Sunday night. This is a quality night and at the top of our quality list is The Good Wife.”

Two and a Half Men — now starring Ashton Kutcher — is staying put on Mondays at 9 pm. CBS president Nina Tassler declined to reveal details regarding Kutcher’s character, except to say that exec producer Chuck Lorre has “cooked up something fabulous.”

As for new fare, Person of Interest — exec-produced by J.J. Abrams and starring Michael Emerson and James Caviezel — was CBS’ best-testing pilot in years, it was touted, and as such will claim the competitive Thursdays-at-9 slot, where it will go up against Grey’s Anatomy and Bones.

Premiering at midseason: Season 3 of Undercover Boss and The 2-2, a new drama executive-produced by Robert De Niro.

      • I remember several times that when Good Wife was on repeat, Parenthood’s numbers went up, so I see this as a big positive. I know that I watch both, so this is really great news.

    Comment by Mr Awesome – May 18, 2011 05:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, odd to renew it and effectively put it out to pasture in the same breath. Is this a syndication grab?
      I could see it if CBS wanted to try to take back Saturday by programming it fully – but the rest is reruns.

      Comment by John Berggren – May 18, 2011 07:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • It could be CBS trying to see if they can generate an original audience on Saturday. It’s the one night a week without standard scripted programming; if they can start making inroads – which might be possible with DVR/timeshifting – then that gives them a potential three more hours to schedule (and sell). It’s not a bad move if they have a decently performing show that is already getting much of it’s views via timeshifting, at least as an experiment. And it makes sense CBS would be the one to do it, since they have the strongest schedule out of all the networks (at least in terms of high ratings and long-running shows). They’re sort of stuck in a position of having to expand if they want to continue developing new shows without canceling the shows that are performing well.

        It will be interesting to see what happens.

        Comment by Kelly – May 18, 2011 09:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • As much as I like ROE, it’s had half seasons up until this year and the quality has declined a lot with a full 22 episodes this season. So I think this move to Saturdays will mark the end, Audrey and Jeff have their baby, Adam and Jen get married, Timmy finds a better job and Russell loses his, preferably Timmy ousts Russell. That would be a fitting end to 6 years of ROE.

  • Is it bad that they’ve moved The Good Wife to Sundays? Surely Tuesday’s was a better slot? I hope that doesn’t mean S3 might be the end of TGW!

    Comment by L – May 18, 2011 05:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • TGW will most likely get a 2 year deal so I doubt it’s bad for them. I think Sunday 9pm isn’t that bad

      Comment by C. – May 18, 2011 06:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Expectations are less high on Sunday, plus it has no competition for Parenthood which it shared the same audience with. Even if the ratings stay the way they are or even decrease a bit they can always put season 4 on friday’s. So its easy to get a syndication deal.

      Comment by Ingmar – May 18, 2011 06:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Sunday is the most watched night of the week, and it will be up against a desperate Desperate Housewives. I think it’s a smart move.

        Comment by Abe Froman – May 18, 2011 12:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

        • More reason to cancel the football season. I don’t want it to run over and mess up my viewing of The Good Wife.

          Comment by Beth – May 18, 2011 07:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I totally agree. TGW ran late on their premiere fall 2011 show because of football and my DVR didn’t record it all. I’m really PO’d.
            Wish I could have stayed awake long enough to watch it. PLEASE MOVE IIT TO A NON-FOOTBALL NIGHT!

            Comment by Kathleen – September 27, 2011 11:28 AM PDT  
    • I think Sunday is a terrible choice!! CBS sporting events (Golf, Football etc) tend to run into overtime and screws up schedule esp if you have to DVR!! I’m not as concerned about it being up against Desperate Housewives (why is that show still on the air anyway?) but I hate the Sunday schedules at CBS!

      Comment by Mykey716 – May 18, 2011 09:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Amen! I cringed when I saw the move because programing a DVR for CBS Sundays is a NIGHTMARE!

        Comment by Deena – May 18, 2011 09:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • The good news is that CBS does allow “The Good Wife” to be played On Demand. I am a big fan of the Amazing Race, and I always have the DVR recording one hour past the actual time. Of course, now since that hour will be “The Good Wife”, it creates all kinds of havoc. But as long as they keep it On Demand, we’ll be fine :)

          Comment by Tom K – May 18, 2011 12:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • On demand may be fine for you, Tom, but not for everyone.
            They killed Cold Case by putting it on Sundays and preempting it with overflow of football/sport of the week. If they know what’s good for them they will put TGW back where it was and let that Unforgetable show start on Sundays so it can sink into the quagmire of cop procedurals while saving TGW which isn’t just a lawyers procedural.

            Comment by fyrkat – May 18, 2011 08:25 PM PDT  
        • So absolutely true, Deena, I agree with you 110%. Between network TV and all the excellent cable programs that are “all” on Sunday, plus factor in football which often delays the CBS shows, programming the DVR is a NIGHTMARE. At least TGW is not on 10:00 which is what killed shows like Cold Case and the very underated The Unit, due to football delays they were on sometimes at close to 11:00 or later. Before you jump on what I just said, I am not comparing TGW to them, because it is a superb show but the other two shows happened to very good.

    • Well don’t feel too bad…given the NFL lockout and that chaos there may not be any football this season. Which I think is a tragedy, but to each their own…

      Comment by Renee – May 18, 2011 06:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I thought the same thing at first, but then I remembered that TGW is available (at least through my cable provider) ON DEMAND for free. So I guess I will be watching it that way, especially during the fall when football screws everything up.

      Comment by GG – May 18, 2011 06:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • Wow Rules to Saturdays. Talk about being shafted. CSI to Wednesdays? Then Good Wife to Sundays? Talk about a few surprises. CBS though have made a stupid move. The Mentalist should be 9pm Thursday not 10pm.

    Comment by Guy – May 18, 2011 05:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Putting CSI after Survivor & Criminal Minds will definitely help CSI, especially if it loses more cast members … but agreed about The Mentalist. Shifting it to 9:00 pm would totally destroy Grey’s Anatomy – and there ain’t nothing wrong with that!

      Comment by Dave – May 18, 2011 05:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • No way! I already watch Grey’s Anatomy & Bones at that time so I love The Mentalist on later.

  • So glad NCIS and NCIS LA stayed in the same place. Tuesdays are the only day I watch CBS.

    The reason they moved Good Wife, is because they wanta good ratings lead in for their new show, but I don’t think it is advantageous for the Good Wife.

      Comment by Rock Golf – May 18, 2011 06:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m guessing they put Rules of Engagement on Saturday because they want to stretch it out to fulfill a syndication package. Otherwise, it’s difficult to imagine any other reason. There’s no way they’re expecting it to bring in any kind of marketable audience. Reruns of the same show would probably get the same rating.

  • The only shows I watch on CBS are How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory so don’t really care about anything else.Might try out Persons Of Interest only because of JJ Abrams and Two Broke Girls interests me a lot of quirky girl sitcoms coming out in the fall which i’m excited about.

        well said. Just what I was thinking.

        And it’s stupid to say you’re done with a show cause they move it to another night. If you love a show, you find a way to watch it, whether it’s through dvr, tivo, online, anything!! You don’t just say, oh, well, screw this show cause the network changed its airing day.

    • Thankfully, TGW is available ON Demand pretty soon after it airs normally at least on the 2 cable systems I have depending where I am… And don’t forget, CBS overruns are only every other Sunday or so when they have a doubleheader… Also, out west, everything runs on time…

      I do agree Cold Case was ruined by the very late times especially since that show was never available any other way other than TV… No On Demand or online viewing nor ITUNES.. The series finale was on TNT yesterday afternoon BTW… I hadn’t seen it since it was on… I do miss that show..

  • Moving CSI to follow Criminal Minds is a good move, IMO. Now if they would just ‘move’ Fishburne’s character off the show, it would be even better. Sorry, but I just don’t like his character and what it has done to the show.

    • Agree, great to have CSI follow Criminal Minds, and second the idea of losing Ray Langston (Fishburne’s character)…I was really hoping the finale meant either the death or imprisonment of Dr. Ray!! (Please bring back Gil Grissom!!!)

      • Totaly agree with both of you. I hate Ray Langston. And having CSI right after Criminal Minds means that I can watch the whole episode of Bones when it airs instead of being changing channels between FOX and CBS.

  • Wow moving The Good Wife to Sunday at 9 has to be the absolute worst possible placement! I think moving it off Tuesdays is a good idea but there are so many better places for it to go! It may be splitting audience with Parenthood now but it’s going to move somewhere else where it will still split audience (with Desperate Housewives). What a mistake! There are gaping holes in other network’s schedules that CBS really could have taken advantage of by moving such a powerhouse but boy did they drop the ball!

  • Can’t believe Mad Love cancelled for this stuff? Gee at least they could have put it on saturday with Rules!! Don’t watch Good wife but that looks pretty stupid move too.

  • This is very good for The Good Wife. The 10:00 slots have become DVR-watching hours. The demo is weak. Very rarely do shows break a 3. So, most 10:00 shows look like under-performers compared to their lead-ins, especially in the demo. On Sunday at 9, it gets the benefit of the decent lead-in and is up against a rapidly declining Desperate Housewives. Given the competition, it should finish second in viewers and third in the demo, and CBS will be very happy.

  • The Good Wife is so brilliant I think the fans will tune in regardless of when it airs. At least they aren’t putting it in a more competitive timeslot. Honestly, is anyone even watching Desperate Housewives anymore? You never see any buzz about it these days. Also, glad to hear Person of Interest tested so well. I am tired of procedurals but will give anything Michael Emerson is in a chance.

  • Disappointing news about The Good Wife. Sunday night is where CBS puts shows to die (Cold Case is a good example). Sunday afternoon sports always runs over — sometimes pushing shows up to two hours later than programmed.

    And CBS won’t do any better about managing those sports broadcasts than they ever did. I’ll do my best to support, but CBS doesn’t make it easy.

  • For those of you upset re The Good Wife’s move to Sunday and the issue of football games that may run late just set your PVR to record 1 hour+ late that way you will not miss any of the show. I think this is not a horrible move as it fills the void (I realize not the time slot) that Brother’s and Sister’s leaves on Sundays!

  • Wow, the new stuff is just not appealing. I may watch the premiere of Two and a Half Men just to see how they explain it all but I was getting tired of the redundant joke already. CSI move is pointless since without Peterson it has really lacked the energy it once had.

  • First time I seen CBS having the worst Fall schedule in years. Guess the Eye network and Les Moonves are both getting PUNK’D.

  • Wow, I never realized that I don’t watch any shows on CBS…

  • YES! All three CSIs are renewed! I personally think that its a great idea for CSI: Las Vegas to be moved to Wednesdays. CSI Miami must have an awesome season opener to follow that one hell of a cliffhanger season finale!

  • Yes, The Good Wife on Sundays! I think it’s a really good time slot for the show!

  • I actually like most of the new shows and scheduling decisions that were made and hoping that I don’t get disappointed by them. To see more of my opinions on many various things, go to my own website. http://reviews-bh.blogspot.com/
