CBS has fast-tracked Intelligence — which stars the Lost alum as an elite spy with a nanocomputer embedded in his bean — for a sneak preview on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 9/8c, where it will lead out of a fresh episode of NCIS aka TV’s most watched drama. Now, I have no fancy “chip” in my brain, but that’s called “maximizing your sampling,” people.

Intelligence will then make its regular time slot premiere on Monday, Jan. 13 at 10/9c.

The action-thriller, which also stars Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time) and Marg Helgenberger (CSI), originally was to launch on Feb. 24, the day after NBC’s Winter Olympics coverage wraps.

CBS also announced that Monday’s current 10 o’clock drama, Hostages, will conclude its 15-episode run on Monday, Jan. 6 at 9 pm, with a two-hour finale.

Check out the Intelligence trailer below, then watch its stars preview their CBS mission.

    • Josh Halloway is such a jerk!!! I hope this series flops or they replace him!! Saw him in Hanalei he was a total jerk, didn’t bother him just was taking photos of the bay and he freaking cussed us out!! I will never support anything he is in!! He forgets that fans are what pays his salary!

    • It’s a great show. Change the day it airs.

  • That makes sense, but I think that Hostages and Intelligence will both be canceled by the end of the year. I think they will move Person Of Interest into the Monday 10:00 slot and leave post NCIS, NCIS: LA for the new show next year. Just basing this on the way every (recent) CBS mid-season drama has performed in the past. I think CBS will greenlight the NCIS Louisiana Spin-off and Tuesdays will be the NCIS night.

    • I dunno, CBS is the network of sitcoms and procedurals. Hostages didn’t fit into that mold. But Intelligence very likely does. As long as there’s some amount of a “case of the week,” I have a feeling it’ll do just fine.

  • Woo, super excited that they brought Chuck back for another season!

    • hehe! I don’t think this will be nearly so funny as chuck but its certainly worth a watch.

    • Lol!

  • This should be good as I miss “Chuck” so much. I liked the concept of the intersect/nano chip in the head set up. It made for interesting situations. This one seems more serious and less campy but I do like Josh Holloway so I hope it’s good. Chuck was really a great show and didn’t last as long as it should have. If only Zach Levi and Adam Baldwin were in on this new show, it would be perfect.

    I guess I can only hope that Zach will somehow show up on Adam’s new show “The Last Ship.” I think the two of them resemble a Father/Son as they’re both so tall, dark and handsome. Sigh…..I miss them…..Morgan too!

    • When Josh Gomez popped up on Castle recently, all I kept thinking was, “It’s Morgan!”

      • Was I the only secretly hoping that the episode was a backdoor pilot for another series. Would love to have a Timecop-esque show with the slight comedic tinge that Josh Gomez would bring to the show..

  • I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I watched the “Intelligence” pilot in August and it’s awful. It felt like a waste of everyone’s talents.

    • LOL, something tells me you didn’t hate posting this comment at all.

      • I was actually really looking forward to the show. But the pilot I watched was really dull. It felt slow and the characters were just cookie-cutter.

        This was the pilot sent out to the local stations, and I’ve seen some changed before they hit air (Revolution) before, so there is some hope. I’m just not holding my breath.

        • I didn’t like the Chicago Fire pilot but now it’s one of my favorite shows. Same with The Originals, it’s really growing on me. I always give shows a few eps before I write them off. I’m hopeful :-)

    • I saw the pilot over the summer also and didn’t like it either. It’s too bad as the concept is interesting and I like all the actors but writing is horrible and Josh was overacting. Don’t get your hopes up people.

    • I’m sad they don’t keep HOSTAGES. It is one of the best I’ve ever watdhed !!!

  • Why Is Everything On Mondays At 10….My DVD Can Only Record 2 Shows, Castle And The Blacklist

    • I know, Monday’s are rough. Wednesday too for me.

      • Forme it’s Sunday & Thursday :)

  • Awesome, I’ve missed Josh. And Meghan Ory. And heck, I miss Chuck, but I imagine this is less nerdy fun. But it’s up against Castle, so I guess I’ll be watching via the internet.

  • Also I’m looking forward to seeing Hostages play out. I hope it goes out on a high note.

  • can’t wait to have the beautiful Sawyer gracing my tv screen again :)

  • I’m so excited to see Meghan Ory on my screen again.

  • I’m surprised they didn’t just out PoI on Monday night and have Hostages and Intelligence on Tuesdays to capitalize off of the NCIS’s

    Comment by Ram510 – November 12, 2013 07:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Mid season dramas on CBS haven’t done so well in the past and I doubt Intelligence will be any different.

    Comment by Jared – November 12, 2013 08:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I wonder why CBS chose to move up the premiere date and not wait for late February/post NBC Olympics coverage? Perhaps CBS is as concerned about their Monday night lineup as we have been thinking they should be. CBS may have some more changes coming for Monday sooner than we thought – maybe another 9pm show to try to jump start ‘Mom’ at 9:30?

  • NO NO NO I want Meghan back on OUAT. I want her and Frankenstein to be together! This is NOT good. :(

  • Dead on arrival is my prediction. None of the mid-season shows look any good (Tricia Helfer’s Killer Women is also going to tank hard).

    Comment by Apples – November 13, 2013 04:20 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Don’t get cbs, it needs a strong lead in for new shows– it has Tuesdays and Wednesdays to at least give the show a fighting chance before putting it up against two of the highest rated shows on tv.

  • I would rather they just bring back Chuck lol

  • I’m losing interest in Hostages. Storyline is going everywhere. I can’t imagine how they can fill the rest of their time. Too bad too…love Dylan M. and Toni C.

  • Also reminds me of Search/Probe back in the 70′s with Hugh O’Brian.

    Comment by Reynard – December 17, 2013 11:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Can someone tell me when the next Hostages will be on? I see it’s not on tonight but is the next one not until January 6th or something?

  • I liked this show well enough, but they’ve made a mistake putting it on opposite The Blacklist and Castle.
