  • Matt

    This will definitely lift the ratings!

  • Brian

    Awesome this is the second time for H5O

  • darius

    Like always they use this to promote Cbs owned shows only!

  • SJ

    What, again? Seriously?!

  • Mon

    I was hoping 2 Broke Girls would get it since it failed to get the post-TBBT and post-SB slot. Oh well there’s always next year.

  • Faith

    @darius Since this is after the AFC Championship game on CBS hmmm, wonder why they would only promote a CBS owned show. lol

  • Tony JJ

    There is an obvious reason that CBS chose this show again. It has a huge syndication deal, owned by CBS, and the ratings are slumping. They want this show to ride out as long as they can and its only in it’s what? 3rd season? If 2 broke girls was produced by CBS then it would be getting this slot because that too has a HUGE syndication deal.

  • Avery

    @Mon
    No, there is not a next year.
    Fox has the NFC Championship game at 6:30PM next year (2014), CBS has the 3:00PM AFC Championship game.
    CBS gets the 6:30 slot back again in 2015.

  • DenverDean

    @Darius. FALSE. CBS used AFC Championship post-game slot for TM, which is NOT owned by CBS. It was pretty much a demo flop.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    No Person of Interest?

    Petar’s head explodes ;-)

  • romo

    Brady/Manning should do 57,000,000.

  • CBSviewer

    Great news :) 3 new episodes in 8 Days !

  • Max Vrany

    @Avery/Mon, to elaborate, there is an annual rotation to determine what championship starts when.

    In odd numbered playoff years (like this year), the NFC Championship (on FOX) is first at 3:00 EST, followed by the AFC Championship (on CBS) at 6:30 EST.

    In even numbered playoff years (like next year), the AFC Championship (on CBS), is first at 3:00 EST, followed by the NFC Championship (on FOX) at 6:30 EST.

    It didn’t help the last time, why would it this time?

    Lindsay Price guest stars? Good luck with that. ;)

  • DenverDean

    One more thing – CBS aired H50 after 2011 AFC Championship Game and drew over 19MM, beating TM which drew something like 16MM. Not sure results will be same for H50, but it is a good pick. POI has gotten into groove. Elementary after SB, NCIS/LA don’t need publicity and CM, CSI are way too violent for this type of general audience as CBS discovered when it aired CM after SB a few years ago.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    No love for Vegas.
    It is clear CBC has given up.

  • Mon

    @Avery/Max Vrany
    Thanks for that.

  • ccemerson

    Big Question will this air in Primetime on the east coast or after 11pm if the game goes long ??? Should be a boost, but after three seasons it has found its audience. Picking up new viewers is a stretch. Wonder if NCIS would pull in over 30 million viewers if it was airing instead.

  • Ateofi

    @CBSViewer
    I’m happy too :)

  • Chuck_T

    It’s a smart move considering their ratings have been less than stellar this season.
