To be quite honest, Pavan, I'm not liking this schedule that much. To begin, I don't see Cold Case staying on Sundays. I think CBS may want to try something new on Sundays this season. We may see Cold Case go to Fridays at 9pm, where it would work very well. I also don't think Flashpoint will be around in the fall - it'll return midseason at the least, but it still isn't entirely filling that gap on Fridays at 9pm. I really think Saturdays would be good. It's stable, it's cheap, and it's older skewing, perfect for Saturdays.

NCIS/The Mentalist fit like a glove out of each other, their ratings are nearly identical, but I think we'll see them broken up. Or, many not - who knows. I also don't think comedies will go to Sundays. I think CBS will stick with the Wednesday comedy hour. And seeing how ROE bombed yesterday, they definitely won't be using that to start off the hour. And, I think Without a Trace will return for another season, not the last season. If CBS keeps it at 10pm, without airing against SVU, it will be able to get 13-14 million easy.

I think CBS will give Old Christine a full season, or at least 18-20 episodes. They really can't afford not to with CBS on their backs. Chances are it'll stay on Wednesdays. Not sure about Rules or Gary, as both are not hits either. I think Eleventh Hour will return, maybe for Sundays?, but I agree that The Unit needs to call it quits.

It's not about liking. It's what CBS will probably do going by their usual practices and buzz on new series. CBS will not break up NCIS/The Mentalist. They are never bold enough to make such moves. The Unit has more of a shot than Eleventh Hour.

NCIS could easily be used to launch a new show. The Mentalist could easily be used to fill a gap on another night. I don't want to see them broken up, but I think CBS may do so.

Seeing how badly Harper's Island did, Eleventh Hour's 12 million on Thursdays doesn't look so bad. It's demo wasn't the greatest, but I think it's worth renewing for a second season. The Unit can't even pull over a 2.4 in the demo, and it's the lowest rated drama/procedural on CBS at the moment.

I hope they do keep CM and CSINY together. I wouldn't mind them moving CC to another night...Sunday night sucks, especially during football season.

I hope they keep NCIS and the Mentalist together. They are a perfect combination.

I agree. They're ratings have been almost identical lately. Look at Tuesday - NCIS had 16.18 mil, TM had 16.22 mil, both had a 3.3 demo. They're perfect for each other.

and they are both fun shows. I hope the NCIS spin-off will be as good. I didn't really enjoy the two part pilot that much. I'm going to give the new show a chance though. Pilots can be tricky. I didn't care for the Jag pilot that spun off NCIS either and it took about a half a year for NCIS to find it's groove.

Friday at 9pm will have to be a new show in the fall. Since CTV only produces 13 episodes a season, it will most likely air during midseason.

Default The CBS Fall Slate As I See It

I read your proposed CBS fall schedule with great interest. It has merit, but I have a rather different take. This is the lineup that makes sense to me. It is predicated on two objectives: developing a second night of sitcoms, and being powerfully dominant in the third hour opposite Leno. Also, I'd like to see them do the unthinkable and make an effort at scheduling Saturday night. It won't happen, but it'd be nice.

SUNDAY: 60 Minutes / Mentalist / THREE RIVERS / GOOD WIFE
MONDAY: Big Bang / WAITING TO DIE /2 1/2 Men / Rules /CSI Miami
TUESDAY: NCIS / NCIS: SPECIAL PROJECTS / The Unit
WEDNESDAY: Mother / Unmarried / ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE / Christine /
Criminal Minds
THURSDAY: Survivor / CSI / CSI NY
FRIDAY: Amazing Race / Ghost Whisperer / Cold Case
SATURDAY: 48 Hours / Flashpoint / Numbers

Way too many risks there. CBS doesn't do that. They are so boring. And they are so tight-lipped with their pick-ups. We have pick-up news for NBC, Fox, and ABC, but CBS never says a word. The schedule is the latest released in terms of the time in the morning, too. It is so frustrating.
