CBS's 2014-2015 Schedule: The Big Bang Theory, CSI, NCIS: LA, and The Amazing Race Are All on the Move

CBS is shaking up its schedule quite a bit this fall. The Big Bang Theory is moving to Mondays at 8pm to start off the season while the network airs NFL Thursday Night Football on, uh, Thursdays. But starting on October 30, The Big Bang will return to Thursdays at 8pm. That same week will also see the premiere of Two and a Half Men's final season, which will air Thursdays at 9pm. 

Other shows moving to new nights are NCIS: Los Angeles, which will head to Mondays at 10pm, following new drama Scorpion; The Amazing Race, which will shift to Fridays at 8pm to make way for the Tea Leoni-starring Madam Secretary on Sundays at 8pm; and CSI, which will relocate to Sundays at 10pm and split the time slot with new spin-off CSI: Cyber.

Kevin Williamson's new drama Stalker will air in CSI's old berth, Wednesdays at 10pm.

Held for midseason are Mike & MollyUndercover Boss, The Mentalist, and Vince Gilligan's new drama Battle Creek, as well as the network's new remake of The Odd Couple starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon.

Noticeably absent from the schedule is the much-hyped How I Met Your Mother spin-off How I Met Your Dad. In explaining why it wasn't picked up, CBS's Nina Tassler said, "There were elements of the pilot that didn't work out." The network reached out to producers Carter and Bays about redoing the pilot, but "It wasn't what they wanted to do."

    I agree with wolfej887243 Need to move NCIS LA back to a resealable time for us folks that need to work the next day I have tried staying up and always fall asleep as soon as it starts

  • Floyd3311 Aug 05, 2014

    What's the big deal? I just DVD everything and watch it when I want anyway!!

  • wolfej887243 Jul 13, 2014

    Need to move NCIS Los Angeles back to 8pm or 9pm people have work the next day and 10pm is too freaking late I won't ever be able to watch it and I really like this show!!

    LOL Check out the Amazing Race Time Slot.......8 - 8PM

  • JetixMasterDan May 15, 2014

    The Amazing Race on Friday's gives me something to watch on Friday's, but I now have no interest in CBS's Sunday's, unless I choose to catch CSI, which I haven't done in 5 or 6 seasons, on Sunday night. NCIA: LA could benefit greatly from their move to Monday's and gives me something I want to watch each hour on Monday's.

    Anyone know if Mom will be put on Netflix, and if so, around when?

  • scyfymum2 May 14, 2014

    And they say tv has no imagination proof we have ANOTHER CSI spinoff & ANOTHER NCIS spinoff. Oh the excitement of originality!

  • Akyriel May 14, 2014

    The only thing that jumps put at me is having two NCIS shows on the same night. I'd prefer to have that spread out one a night, if I were a programmer. Perhaps even every other night - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday or Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

    I would also flip Madame Secretary with the CSI shows.

  • venabili May 14, 2014

    NCIS:LA had always been the same night as the original show - the main NCIS is a pretty good lead-in for the newer show. And had proven to be a success for CBS. So no real surprise there.

    Battle Creek is really the only show at the moment that appeals to me on the CBS schedule this season. I can't wait to see what David Shore and Vince Gilligan have cooked (not a BB pun) up.

    (also Football!!)

    Otherwise, CBS is being smart by not adding a bunch of hacky, lame-premised new programming *cough*ABC*cough* to the lineup and coasting through with its existing programming--all the way to the top again.
