CBS re-jiggers schedule and ships serial murder mystery over to an unwatched evening; network says audience is "outside" Thursdays.

Harper's Island sunk to Saturdays

I like to imagine that Jacob from Lost appeared before CBS chief Les Moonves and told him that he has to "move the Island," but I think it's more simple than that. CBS has bumped new series Harper's Island over to Saturday nights after the innovative drama continued its unimpressive ratings performance.

CBS' whodunnit comes to a satisfying conclusion, but its future isn't looking so lush.

Harper's Island is over, but is it sunk for good?

Harper's Island is over, but is it OVER over? That was the general consensus early on, when CBS swept the poor ratings performer from its prime Thursday-night slot to the much less-desirable Saturday-night lineup.

CBS kills Moonlight, saves Mother

CBS today made a bunch of television fanatics very angry. The network put a stake through the heart of Moonlight lovers everywhere, opting not to bring back the vampire drama for a second season, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The decision comes on the eve of CBS' upfronts in New York City, which will outline the network's upcoming schedule. Moonlight had been considered a bubble show with a very devoted fan base--devoted enough to even donate blood in its honor.

On the other hand, today was a good day for fans of How I Met Your Mother, and they may have Britney Spears to thank for it. The comedy was granted another season, possibly in part to Spears' guest appearances, which boosted ratings during sweeps.

Also getting another season and proving the Seinfeld jinx ...

Actor Christopher Gorham leaves Ugly Betty for CBS's midseason slasher horror Harper's Island.

Henry ditches Betty for Harper's

In last season's finale of Ugly Betty, the show's titular character was on the verge of choosing between two suitors, Gio Rossi (Freddy Rodriguez) and Henry Grubstick (Christopher Gorham).

Unless ABC has some sort of trick up its sleeve, it appears as though Betty may be pulling a Brad Womack from The Bachelor and ultimately turn them both down.

Gorham has signed on to star in the upcoming CBS show Harper's Island, says The Hollywood Reporter, and won't return to Betty. Rodriguez may be available for one episode, but has several films on his schedule and won't be able to come back as a recurring character. These moves look to be the reason why the show just cast Val Emmich (Cashmere Mafia, 30 Rock), who is expected to be the new apple of Betty's eye in the upcoming season.

Gorham will be moving networks ...

CBS courting Laurence Fishburne to replace William Petersen; Tudors adds two, Supernatural hottie hears wedding bells.

CSI trying to reel in big Fish

The line between the big screen and small screen continues to thin out, as more film actors are giving television a shot (hint: $$$!!!). Case in point: The latest scuttlebutt from Hollywood has Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus!!) as the number-one choice to lead CBS's ratings smash CSI.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS is dangling buckets of cash in front of The Matrix star in hopes he'll fill the spot that will be vacated by William Petersen, who plans to leave the show after this season. Fishburne is in discussions to play "a doctor/scientist outsider to the CSI unit" that apparently has the same genetic makeup as a serial killer but hasn't acted on any murderous impulses...yet!

Sources also tell the trade that John Malkovich and Kurt Russell were also being looked at for the role.

Harper's island is a murder mystery show where a group of people go a secluded island for a wedding- and for death. It turns into a struggle for survival, where every episode someone is killed and every person is a suspect. At the end of the 13 episodes, all questions are answered and only a few survive.
