CBS Fall Schedule 2012-2013

CBS held pretty steady and had a few tweaks, but they also created a monster, a monster block.  CBS moved Two and a Half Men to Thursday after The Big Bang Theory.  Watch out Thursday night at 8 pm CBS is unstoppable!  2 Broke Girls received the coveted 9 pm slot on Monday.  The Mentalist was moved to Sunday at 10 pm, showing a weakening support for this show, which may be on its way out in a year.  CSI is now on Wednesday nights at 10 pm.  In announcing its Fall schedule CBS has cancelled the comedy Rob, while unlike any other network they left one show still on the bubble, Rules of Engagement (I do not know anyone who watches this show.)

CBS has added four new series to the mix of their weekly line-up, and here they are:

Partners which comes from the brilliant minds of Max Mutchnik and David Kohan, the creators of Will & Grace.  Partners centers on two best friends who own an architecture firm, of them gay the other straight although their friend seems more like a marriage. Starring Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), David Krumholtz (Numbers), Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill) Brandon Routh (Superman Returns).

Vegas is set in the 1960s and centers around the ling time rodeo cowboy and noted sheriff of La Vegas Ralph Lamb. Starring Dennis Quaid (The Rookie), Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Carrie Ann Moss (Chuck).

Elementary, should have been replaced with the BBC television series Sherlock, but this show is a modern take on Sherlock Holmes set in NYC, with a female Watson. Starring Johnny Lee Miller (Eli Stone) Lucy Lui (Ally McBeal), Aidan Quinn (Prime Suspect).

Made in Jersey is a David vs. Goliath law show about a woman who uses her street smarts to take on a big time Manhattan law firm.  Starring Janet Montgomery (Entourage), Kyle McLachlan (Twin Peaks).
