    “The Mentalist” is doing so well in the week, so why move it to Sundays?

    It looks as if FOX is now the new cooking channel, all its higher rated shows are about cooking.

    @Jiji Morgan……I totally agree, CBS is making a big mistake by moving ‘The Mentalist’ to Sunday nights. It would have been the perfect spot to leave it to Tuesday nights at 10 PM.
