CBS is the final broadcaster to unveil its midseason game plan, and highlights include the return of Rules of Engagement, a special Tuesday launch for the new cop drama Golden Boy and a February finale for CSI: NY.
As expected, ultimate Eye utility player Rules — which is entering its seventh (!!!) season — will replace the cancelled comedy Partners on Mondays-at-8:30 pm beginning Feb. 4.
Greg Berlanti and Nicholas Wootton’s Golden Boy, which centers on the meteoric rise of an ambitious cop (Downton Abbey‘s Theo James) who is destined to become the youngest police commish in New York City history, will get a special two-week preview in Vegas’ Tuesdays-at-10 slot on Feb. 26 and March 5, before settling into its regular Fridays-at-9 perch on March 8 (replacing CSI: NY, which will wrap Season 9 on Feb. 22.)
Vegas, meanwhile, will resume its rookie run on March 12.
Lastly, the spring editions of Survivor and Amazing Race will bow Wednesday, Feb. 13 and Sunday, Feb. 17 respectively.Follow @MichaelAusiello
