If you're one of those people that spurns DVR players -- preferring to watch your shows when they actually air -- you'd better pay attention. CBS announced its new fall schedule, and they've moved some series around!
Say you sit down at the usual time for your weekly dose of 2 Broke Girls. You'll find yourself staring at two non-broke guys in a new show called Partners. Actually, CBS would probably like you to make that mistake: Why not try out this new sitcom from the creators of Will & Grace about two best friends, one who's straight (Numb3rs alum David Krumholtz) and one who's gay (Ugly Betty alum Michael Urie)? Then stick around for 2 Broke Girls at its new time, 9 p.m. ET.
You'll also have to wait until Thursday to catch Two and a Half Men, which is moving to the time slot right after that other Chuck Lorre production, The Big Bang Theory. And fans of The Mentalist who tune in at the regular time will wonder why they're watching Jonny Lee Miller snooping around with Lucy Liu. (Answer: They're playing Sherlock Holmes and Watson in the network's new drama, Elementary.) Mentalist fans will have to switch their couch time to Sunday night after The Good Wife. But that's OK, Simon Baker's groupies will follow him anywhere!
CBS isn't taking too many chances on new shows. Why bother when you're currently the highest-rated network? But one new one, the 1960's period drama, Vegas, is getting lots of buzz for its stellar cast. That includes Dennis Quaid as a sheriff on the trail of a gangster played by The Shield's Michael Chiklis.
Here's how the new schedule shakes out:
8 p.m. How I Met Your Mother
8:30 p.m. Partners
8 p.m. NCIS
8 p.m. Survivor: Philippines
8 p.m. The Big Bang Theory
8:30 p.m. Two and a Half Men
8 p.m. CSI: NY
7 p.m. 60 Minutes
