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 & Molly, Undercover 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."
