CBS is making some adjustments to its midseason schedule.  Starting January 15, Undercover Boss will air Sundays at 8pm. But beginning Friday, February 17, Undercover Boss moves to 8pm Fridays.  A Gifted Man will move to 9pm Fridays that same Friday in place of CSI: NY.  But on Friday March 30, A Gifted Man departs the schedule and CSI: NY returns.

In an earlier poll on what would take A Gifted Man’s slot on the Friday schedule, Undercover Boss and Unforgettable finished in a dead heat.
