    19 Current Series Return

    CBS Makes Four Key Time Period Moves to Grow Nights and Spread Strength Across the Schedule

    TWO AND A HALF MEN Moves to Thursday at 8:30 PM, Creating A Powerful Comedy Block with THE BIG BANG THEORY at 8:00 PM

    CSI: NY to Open Fridays at 8:00 PM and THE MENTALIST Takes Over Sundays at 10:00 PM

    NEW YORK - CBS announced today its new 2012-2013 primetime schedule, ordering four new series and making four key time period moves to further enhance television's top-rated schedule. CBS will finish the season as America's most-watched network for the ninth time in the past 10 years, leading in viewers by the widest margin of any network in 23 years.

    The new series include ELEMENTARY, a contemporary take on the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes in New York City, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu; VEGAS, a drama inspired by a real-life sheriff and his battle with a powerful mobster for control of Las Vegas in the 1960s, starring Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis; MADE IN JERSEY, starring Janet Montgomery as a smart first-year lawyer with working-class roots practicing at a prestigious Manhattan law firm; and PARTNERS, a comedy about two very different life-long best friends and business partners and their significant others, starring David Krumholtz and Michael Urie.

    "These new series feature a great range of bold concepts, rich characters, big stars and fresh faces," said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. "From a new take on Sherlock Holmes to an epic battle for control of 1960s Las Vegas to a working-class point of view in a prestigious law firm, the dramas each have a unique style and sensibility. And, our new comedy PARTNERS fits perfectly with the CBS Monday night tradition of relationship comedies with a lot of heart and humor."

    The freshman series will be joined by 19 returning shows, including the season's #1 drama/scripted program - NCIS; the #1 scripted series in adults 18-49 and #1 comedy - THE BIG BANG THEORY; #1 new series - PERSON OF INTEREST; #1 new series/comedy in adults 18-49/25-54 - 2 BROKE GIRLS; #1 news program - 60 MINUTES; and the eight-time Emmy Award winner THE AMAZING RACE.

    The other returning series include HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, MIKE & MOLLY, HAWAII FIVE-0, NCIS: LOS ANGELES, SURVIVOR, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, TWO AND A HALF MEN, CSI: NY, BLUE BLOODS, 48 HOURS MYSTERY, THE MENTALIST and THE GOOD WIFE.

    For midseason, the Emmy Award-nominated UNDERCOVER BOSS returns, plus the new reality series THE JOB from executive producers Michael Davies and Mark Burnett. Also for midseason are the new drama GOLDEN BOY and the new comedy FRIEND ME.

    The new 2012-2013 schedule is as follows:

    On Monday, CBS makes a bold scheduling move and adds a new half-hour series to TV's top comedy night. The veteran HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER returns at 8:00 PM and provides a strong lead-in for the new comedy PARTNERS at 8:30 PM. The #1 new comedy of the season, 2 BROKE GIRLS, moves to 9:00 PM to anchor the night, followed by the sophomore hits MIKE & MOLLY at 9:30 PM and HAWAII FIVE-0 at 10:00 PM, the top-rated 10:00 PM series on television in adults 18-49.

    On Tuesday, CBS uses television's top-rated dramas as lead-ins for a new one-hour series. The #1 drama/scripted series NCIS remains at 8:00 PM, followed by the #2 drama/scripted series NCIS: LOS ANGELES at 9:00 PM, which will provide a powerful and compatible lead-in for the star-studded new series VEGAS at 10:00 PM.

    On Wednesday, a successful night remains intact with potent lead-off hitter SURVIVOR at 8:00 PM, popular thriller CRIMINAL MINDS at 9:00 PM, and the resurgent time period-winning CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION at 10:00 PM, where it improved the time period by 23% in adults 18-49.

    On Thursday, CBS creates a powerful comedy block and adds a provocative new drama. The #1 comedy THE BIG BANG THEORY at 8:00 PM is now paired with the #2 comedy TWO AND A HALF MEN at 8:30 PM, creating a formidable comedy duo as a lead-in for the #1 new drama PERSON OF INTEREST at 9:00 PM, which flows seamlessly into the smart new drama ELEMENTARY at 10:00 PM.

    On Friday, CBS moves a veteran series to kick off the night and launches a new drama in a protected time period. CSI: NY, which consistently wins its time period, moves to 8:00 PM, providing an established lead-in for the new legal drama MADE IN JERSEY at 9:00 PM. BLUE BLOODS, the night's most-watched series, remains a solid anchor at 10:00 PM.

    Saturday will feature CBS's CRIMETIME programming from 8:00-10:00 PM, followed by the popular true crime series 48 HOURS MYSTERY at 10:00 PM.

    On Sunday, CBS adds a hit drama to a prestigious, award-winning lineup. The acclaimed news magazine 60 MINUTES returns for its 45th season to open at 7:00 PM, followed by the eight-time Emmy Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE at 8:00 PM and the critically lauded and award-winning drama THE GOOD WIFE at 9:00 PM. A proven ratings winner at 10:00 PM, THE MENTALIST moves to Sunday to close out the night.

    If YouTube is any indication, Elementary won't last long. 49 likes, 182 dislikes.

    Seems like they combined two successful shows (The Mentalist and BBC's Sherlock) and failed at creating anything good. I mean he's exactly like the character from The Mentalist.

    Made in Jersey looks like half of the original shows on USA.

    Partners might be okay. Overall, not a great slate from CBS this year IMO.

    Icon14 Golden Boy is golden delicious!

    The Golden Boy pilot episode is now available for streaming on CBS.com (though it's geo-blocked to Canadians), or via a Comcast loophole with a Hulu app. It's also available for download (without the CBS logo) from a few sites, but will go to "wide" download distribution probably by tonight or tomorrow.

    It airs on CBS and CTV on Tuesday February 26th. Be sure to give it a try; I loved it.

    My Grade for the pilot episode: 9.8/10 (a little too much mumbling, perhaps)

    I liked everything about the pilot, but reviewer DANIELLE TURCHIANO found ways to tear it to pieces. Nice try Danielle, but you're even pickier than I am.

    [Golden Boy review by Danielle Turchiano -- filled with spoilers -- watch the episode before reading it!]

    Thank you CBS, I was beginning to lose hope ... don't you dare cancel this show!!!!!
    Warning: I'm not playing with a full deck.
