Also of note: CBS is swapping one Chuck Lorre comedy for another on Mondays at 9:30/8:30c, with new sitcom Mom bumping midseason-bound Mike & Molly (Eye prez Nina Tassler assured that the Melissa McCarthy sitcom will be back with a full season’s worth of 22 episodes), and 15-episode thriller Hostages has scored H50‘s Monday 10/9c timeslot (Josh Holloway’s Intelligence will take over when Hostages‘ run ends.)

Tassler also confirmed that the NCIS: LA offshoot NCIS: Red is DOA. “We’d love to try [launching another spin-off] again,” she said, “but protecting [the NCIS franchise] was really important.”

On tap for midseason, in addition to Mike & Molly: New series Friends with Better Lives and Reckless.

  • Smart move to move Person of Interest to Tuesday. Probably the best move I’ve seen from the networks thus far.

      • I’m disgusted with Mike & Molly. They met at an overeater’s meeting and since they found each other neither has dropped one ounce of weight. And the humor has gotten too vulgar.

        • Yeah, fat people shouldn’t be on TV. Everyone on TV should be thin, beautiful,sexy and have the willpower to loose 100+ pounds. You know, just like real people.

        • Get a life, it’s one of the funniest shows on the air. Who cares whether they’ve lost weight or not, it evolved from OE in the first few weeks. If the humor offends you, change the channel.

          I’m really upset that they are delaying the start, hopefully “Mom” will fail. From the clips they’ve shown it looks like it’s pathetic.

      • Please bring back mike and molly and vegas. I am so tired of cbs taking off our good shows for stupid so called reality shows. Also csi. why are you taking it off? what are you people smoking up there? I think you need to hire some new people to help with your programing.

    • I’d be happy if they’d have the episodes on the CBS site. I quit watching in season 2 because I missed a few episodes and got lost. Without the episodes there, I can’t catch up. Stupid move, CBS. Stupid move.

      • That’s the only thing I don’t like about CBS. I record a lot of programming, especially early in the TV season. I mistakenly deleted a few episodes of POI when it was in its first season, and while I understand why, it sucks current CBS shows aren’t available on Hulu. So for now, I gave up on POI >.<

        • Recent episodes, especially the last, have gotten away from the original premise of getting to targeted people to protect them or stop them from doing wrong, and have gotten too technical and confusing. Hopefully it will go back to being as good and interesting and suspenseful as before.

          • I agree totally, plus the addition of the Sarah Shahi to me has bought much less credibility to the series. When she’s around things begin to look cartoonish, and it takes away from John’s character with her smugness, and faux-tough act (I don’t find her to be a good actress..I enjoy Root and Zoe’s character and acting more). I also find myself not caring about her motives. I’m more into the reason John is doing what he does, and empathizing with the fact he was homeless and lost and now has found a reason to live by helping others out who may be in danger. I also am very much drawn to the relationship between John, Finch and Carter (I think she’s absolutely wonderful in this BTW). I should also mention how I enjoy the way Fusco’s character has evolved from being a rogue cop to looking for redemption by doing the right thing(s), yet somehow his past will not let him go entirely.

          I thought it was an excellent show.
          Great crime story.
          Great drama.
          Do you really have to cancel it?

I hate watching shows sometimes & getting so into them because then they get canceled & you never know what happend.

          • Losing Golden Boy is a real blow to my very limited “must watch” list of Shows. So much boring garbage lives on for another year while this gem of good acting, and intriguing casting is lost.

            If anyone has a good idea about how to “save” this Show, please, pass it on.

          • Agreed! I was really mad when you moved Vegas for Golden Boy because it competed with another of my favorite shows, so wound up having the watch Vegas On Demand. Wanted to boycott Golden Boy because of what they did, but couldn’t because I liked it so much! Bring it back!!!!

            Comment by drkstr – June 18, 2013 10:59 PM PDT  
      • That was a good show, though we didn’t like the intermixing of when he’s Commissioner and the cop. The acting and plots were excellent. Hopefully the network will change its mind and bring it back; maybe the time slot was a bad one.

    • hope im wrong as love the show but i think its a terrible move. Moving to 10pm will more than likely mean its ratings will drop and will they be good enough to get a 4th season im not so sure

      Comment by steve – May 15, 2013 02:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’m inclined to disagree. The ratings will probably go down a little bit, but if they have the strong ratings on Thursday night, and they promote the time change, the viewers should be able to jump on board this. Or DVR it. CBS doesn’t really move shows around as much as like NBC.

    • I wish they would takepoi off all together. why is vegas leaving. That and CSI New York are both great shows. CBS really sucks when it comes to good shows. Every one I like seems to be taken off early. My shows are ncis, vegas, csi, csi new York, blue bloods, mike and molly, big bang, and the mentalist. I am going to miss rules of engagement. I want to finish how I met your mother then they can lose it. I liked partners and gifted man. saving hope. they could have let him wake up before taking it off the air.

      • This new Thurs comedy block is a mistake. First, they are running two new shows between Big Bang and Two Men. Secondly, 2Broke Girls needs a strong lead and Men would have accomplished this.
        Grey’s on ABC will be a challenge with a new sitcom at 9.

    Comment by Stuart Ross (@WStuartross) – May 15, 2013 06:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Actually, I disagree. Person of Interest is by far the most intriguing move. It’s a ratings powerhouse for Thursday, so naturally moving it to Tuesday where the 8/9 PM is already strong, expanding the strength of the 10 PM hour secures a Tuesday night win for the network, especially when the Voice is off season. It’s better they do that than to use Tuesday night to launch a new drama.

      Comment by Esaul – May 15, 2013 06:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • But putting POI against SOA? And NCIS LA will be going against Voice that might weaken that night a bit.
        I guess it will be the most watched night for CBS with all their shows with the highest viewership numbers.

        Comment by Ranna – May 15, 2013 06:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Cable v.s. broadcast doesn’t typically have a big impact on ratings, unless we’re talking about The Walking Dead, but even so that’s more of a leap than the whole network v.s. network conversation, at least in my mind. POI won’t be impacted by SOA, I can’t imagine. And to my knowledge, I don’t believe NCIS: LA has suffered a huge blow to the Voice. I can be mistaken. Anyways, a season of growth for POI bodes better than the unsuccessful dramas of last season to launch the 10 PM time slot.

          Comment by Esaul – May 15, 2013 06:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • NCIS LA was against the Voice just once. And even then the ratings droped. Will see how it will go if it goes a whole season against it. And POI big problem are april and may ratings. Even for season finale they couldnt go above 2.4 and thats with a 3.5 lead in (of course talking about 18-49 demographic). And CBS scheduling with 1 new episode and 3 reruns wont help much with keeping the rating high.

    • Good show, good ratings, but moderate for CBS. According to other reporters, Five-o makes its money in international sales, so with that plus upcoming syndication deals makes it irrelevant(to CBS) when the new episodes air. They’ll try to develop a new show in its spot. No-brainier for the network.

      • plus… H50 is a pretty good show that I rarely watch live since CBS posts it ON Demand pretty quickly so I don’t even have to waste DVR space for it… Fridays are OK by me as long as they keep it around… And I would guess it is even more popular overseas.. Great eye-candy both in people and location… I am sure it’s very profitable as well with all the product placements ( hello Subway, Ford, and Hawaian Airlines)…

      • Not a good show actually. And coming in third place constantly in the timeslot doesn’t make it ratings ‘good’. Its just above The Mentalist and that show airs at 11pm due to football on a few days. Also, it doesn’t get anywhere near the promotional push that H50 gets.

        Comment by GK – May 15, 2013 08:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • CBS sells all their shows to other countries, not only H50. So not a reason to keep it around. And the show is doing mediocre outside the US. In the UK, it is beaten by Revolution, Elementary, Arrow, Person of Interest and so many others,

    • Out of all the networks, CBS is the only one who seems to view Friday as a legitimate night of programming. Other networks are starting to view Fridays in a similar sense, to a degree, but CBS has always seemed to have a really solid block of scripted dramas on Fridays.

      Comment by Brooke – May 15, 2013 08:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • As others have pointed out, H50 does not win its time slot. I actually think it works really well between Undercover Boss and Blue Bloods.

      These days, if a show is good, people will record it on Friday and watch it later if they aren’t home. VCR’s and even more now DVR’s mean that people don’t watch live.

      I can recall when ABC had a Family comedy line up on Friday nights that was pretty successful. I remember enjoying that after a long week at work – light fun, etc. I wonder why none of the networks are going for that family audience who would be looking for some fun relaxation. There’s not much that is family friendly on Friday nights; so, they have to go with a movie rental, instead.

    • I can’t imagine they’d want to move around too many of the shows around. Monday nights is easier to launch a new show after the comedy block. It wouldn’t make sense to keep Hawaii where it is. Tuesday has the NCIS/LA block, where Tuesday night there last season didn’t really launch any new shows. Wednesday has Survivor/Criminal Minds/CSI which proves to be effective, so they wouldn’t change that. Thursday saw the comedy block and Person of Interest, which has done exceedingly well there. Why not launch a new show there? Friday, Fridays is difficult to launch a new show, as well as Sunday. So really, the only thing left is your Monday night.

So if it doesn’t, I’m afraid my post is useless to you. :D But I agree, The Good Wife faces the issue of sports too often, and it only hurts the show. I haven’t gotten beyond the first season, but I don’t want to see it harmed by this. :/

    • Remember what they started last year… during sports seasons (football) the sunday night shows actually all start a half out later as a set time, so your DVR will automatically start at 830pm (est) – it’s only when things go weird from there that it doesn’t work. However you can set your DVR to simply record for two hours that night and you will be covered.

    • I haven’t seen anything about Mike & Molly. It has been renewed, so at this point it’s logical to assume that it’ll appear mid-season (unless one of the new comedies fails). NCIS: Red hasn’t been picked up, and probably won’t at this point. I don’t recall reading anything official, I believe Deadline stated it as a rumor.

      Comment by Esaul – May 15, 2013 06:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • NCIS: Red hasn’t been picked up yet. It still has a tiny chance of being picked up for midseason, but EW ran a story on why the networks passed on various pilots, and a CBS exec was quoted as saying the NCIS: LA spinoff wasn’t “special enough” for their schedule.

      Comment by Dizzle – May 15, 2013 06:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Agreed. Always next season too if it’s ever needed. It’s better that they try to retool the show’s concept if there is still interest at any point, than to order it to series like Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, where it lacked so much and was cancelled after a season. I wouldn’t want them to tarnish the success of JAG/NCIS/NCIS: LA with a bad spin off.

  • Not surprised CBS finally pulled the trigger on expanding Thursday’s comedy lineup, but I am surprised they left Elementary in place rather than pushing POI back an hour. POI would’ve been competitive against ABC’s Scandal, but Elementary hasn’t been so far. Other than that, no big surprises. I’m looking forward to Reckless coming in midseason, but looking at this schedule I’m not sure where they could slot it in!

    Comment by Dizzle – May 15, 2013 06:20 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think its actually the only think they could have done. Elementary is CBS new baby that they gonna bring to full 4 season to get it to syndication. They dont own POI (WB show) so there will be no future cash from syndication. I think they gonna protect Elementary as long as they can. And its not doing that bad. I mean if POI gets 2.4 at 9 PM, a 2 at 10 isnt that bad.

      Comment by Ranna – May 15, 2013 07:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • POI only gets 2.4-2.5 during the final month of the season due to sports and male-skewing stuff. Other than that, it constantly gets 2.9-3.5.

        Comment by GK – May 15, 2013 08:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • But its lead in was much bigger then what it will get now. Two and a half men averaged a 3.8 this season while NCIS LA around 2.8. That will impact the shows ratings also. And last week season premiere didnt go against any major sport event and it still only got a 2.4. And now they will have first half of season to go against SOA which is male-skewing also. I think POI still got lucky cuz they could have placed it also against MF and Idol on Wednesday.

          Comment by Ranna – May 15, 2013 09:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I don’t think POI has any crossover audience with a comedy like TAHM.
            There’s a reason for the slump even though it didn;t go against any sporting event. The finale always gets low ratings (even in season 1) since the last stretch of episodes are heavily serialized and if you miss one episode, you cannot just jump in again like any other normal procedural.
            Idol is like any other show now with middling ratings and Modern Family has come down a lot in the ratings department this season. The crossover audience with the female-skewing reality show and comedy would have been minimal IF it was sent to Wednesdays. POI is a very solid show, it won’t be affected that easily. I’d wager that POI will get higher ratings than NCIS:LA during the fall.

            Comment by GK – May 15, 2013 09:32 AM PDT  
          • Oh, and SOA is on cable. Its hardly GOT or TWD on the ratings side. POI should do just fine.

I enjoyed The Avengers, and Agent Phil Coulson, but the trailer is just meh to me. I’ll give S.H.I.E.L.D. a fair chance, but the loyal NCIS viewers will continue to watch, I’d imagine.

          • I don’t think S.H.I.E.L.D. will do that great. Sure it has Joss Whedon, but his name alone doesn’t mean a show will succeed. He also has a streak of bad luck with his shows getting cancelled (but mostly because of FOX), Avengers is great too, but that’s also due to the casting. You’re not going to see RDJ in S.H.I.E.L.D.

I see Body of Proof just might be back on another network. Last night’s episode was terrific, and one episode a few weeks back concerning the “spy” in bed with Jeri Ryan ranks right up there with The Mentalist season finale a couple years ago with Patrick shooting a Red John imposter. CBS-bring Vegas back, you twits! If you can run a show glorifying morbid obesity, you can bring back REAL glitz and entertainment with the best plot lines in the industry.

I finally read a bit about it a few weeks ago and it sounded pretty interesting, which is unfortunate because when a show’s on CBS and they can’t manage to convey anything to me besides “it’s about cops,” they’re practically asking for my eyes glaze over.

  • I think CBS execs have the hardest job when it come to shuffling their shows around because of all the good shows they have. Tuesday night is probably going to their best night of the week with NCIS/LA and Person of Interest.

    • I’d imagine it is difficult for them. But let’s not kid ourselves. I’d rather be in a CBS’ execs shoes over an exec at NBC. :D

  • Not happy about H5O to Friday but considering the competition it will probably see its ratings numbers bump up improving its chances to stay on the schedule.

  • Anything mentioned about Beverly Hills Cop? I think moving H50 to Fridays is a smart move. Shores up the older skewing shows on Friday with a proven hit. Looking forward to Hostages (the Israeli version is great!).

    • From what I read, CBS passed on Beverly Hill Cops.

    • BEVERLY HILLS COP is not happening.

  • “Hostages has scored POI‘s Monday 10/9c timeslot”. That was Hawaii 5 0′s spot not POIs. That said, I will watch POI wherever it goes

  • No Debra Messing show? Well, that means I won’t watch CBS for another year. I’m not really interested in new procedurals and bad sitcoms. They should finally try something new, because today if you’ve seen one show on CBS, you’ve seen them all.

    • CBS is the network that has been the number 1 network in winning the ratings for the past 10 years. There are many shows to choose from on CBS that are really good. Especially the Drama’s and Survivor.

      • All CBS’s dramas are the same procedural show with every episode being exactly the same as the previous one. Nothing great in it. Also I don’t really care about any kind of reality show, they’re all stupid. And ratings doesn’t really mean anything for me.

        • That was how I used to think before I tuned into one of the best shows on tv – Person of Interest. The Good Wife and The Mentalist are very good as well.

      • It’s because they own half of Nielsen.

  • Ugh no change to Sunday so The Good Wife continues to get screwed with football overruns. My poor DVR will be again working overtime on Sundays in the fall.

  • Nothing interesting to come out of this new CBS schedule. I was looking foward to the pilot with Audra McDonald and Jorge Garcia, too bad it did not make it into a series. Well, at least there’s still one bright light with The Good Wife there.

  • I gather this means Backstrom (Hart Hanson drama) was not picked up? If so, that’s disappointing.

  • H50 was a mess last season…..hope they improve their scripts and return to the old crew….that means Steve’s girlfriend back on navy ship far far away and Steve’s mom retiring….Mentalist also weak last season and too much NCI(S). POI is the best network show and Elementary was a huge surprise….. CBS should up their game next season…

  • Well lets see…The Millers sounds like the male version of the Sarah Chalke series just canceled, MOM sounds a little like Malibu Country(just canceled although shouldn’t have been), We Are Men seems sort of dumb and Crazy Ones reminds me of a show Sarah Gilbert and Melanie Griffith in a while ago. Will have to watch it though with the cast. As to Elementary fans, Two and a Half Men is on just before it and it still draws huge ratings so I think it will be OK.

  • What is CBS thinking? Person of Interest has been doing well on Thursday at 9, why mess with a good thing. Tuesday night at 10 has not been a good time slot for shows recently.

  • I just remembered that with it’s new time slot POI will clash with Justified when the latter returns in Jan/Feb 2014. Right? Two of my favorite shows going up against each other. I am conflicted.

    • Please, people — buy a DVR or use On Demand. No need to miss conflicting shows. Just enjoy the bounty of great shows at different times on your own schedule.

  • They go and schedule a solid player like POI at 10pm on a tuesday… Makes no sense. This show should lead in to a new drama. But atleast they’ll win Tuesdays or be second the whole season. Only one new drama and it isn’t Intelligence (for the fall)! Dammit! They have effectively killed TBBT. Watch its ratings crash and burn. Buuuut, they may also have killed Michael Fox show on NBC due to the scheduling.
    H50 has been a disappointment. All that marketing and money poured into it and it couldn’t be competitive last season.
    Elementary is looking like the next H50. If atleast two new comedies break out this time, then its a win for CBS.
    Mondays – Weaker
    Tuesdays – Stronger
    Wednesday – Same
    Thursday – Weaker
    Friday – Stronger
    Sunday – Same

  • Golden Boy was a great show!!!!!!! They could have kept it for midseason or even have it on Friday or Sunday!!!!!!! Seriously CBS!!!!!Hope TNT or USA will pick it up!

    Comment by didi – May 15, 2013 07:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree completely!!! Golden Boy would have done great on Fridays as a lead in for Blue Bloods. I hope it gets picked up somewhere else. It’s a great show!!!
