  • d’

    good ol’ predictable CBS

  • Oliver

    Nothing very surpising. Delaying We Are Men by a week to focus on Mom and Hostages is a good idea.

  • tommie

    I’m guessing they’ll double up some episodes of Unforgettable since it doesn’t premiere until July 28th and have a 13 episode order?

    Counting in the Emmy’s they’ll only have aired 8 episodes before the new season start…

  • Charmed

    When should we expect The CW to announce their premiere dates?

  • Survivor Fan

    The late premiere of We Are Men / 1 hour episode of HIMYM is mostly to give Mom more of a sure thing lead in.

  • Theisssuesarenow

    So 9/24 is when POI will be victim of a crime! When it gets the death slot! Wish could be like a character on the show and prevent the crime from happening on 9/24! In the CBS death slot where all shows fail.

  • Ben Thompson

    How does Big Brother run into October if all the timeslots are taken?

  • TryHarder


    Tues 10pm was only a death slot for CBS because the shows they put there before sucked. Two strong lead-ins from ncis/ncis la garner an even bigger audience from a successful show like POI.


    @Ben. Saturday burn off

  • joe

    Where is mike and molly

  • Mon

    Unforgettable will get high 1s to 2s, will get a back 9 and push The Good Wife to Spring/Summer! :)

  • Jack Bauer

    Hope We Are Men is one of the nominees for the first new show of the season getting canceled.

  • Alan

    I only watch 2BG!

  • TheFrenchGuy

    I hope the curse of September 24 is over. I mean when CSI: NY premiered its 7th Season of September 24 it lost a big part of its audience. Same thing for Hawaii Five-0 and Mike & Molly last year.
    After all NCIS are NCIS: Los Angeles are very powerful ;)

  • Ultima

    When should we expect The CW to announce their premiere dates?

    By the end of July.

    In the CBS death slot where all shows fail.

    I could have sworn this press release said something about the fifth season premiere of The Good Wife. :roll:

    @Ben Thompson
    How does Big Brother run into October if all the timeslots are taken?

    The finale will be right after the Survivor premiere. Why would you think it would run into October?

    Where is mike and molly

    CBS announced it wouldn’t be on the fall schedule last month; it will replace a failed sitcom at some point.

    @Jack Bauer
    Hope We Are Men is one of the nominees for the first new show of the season getting canceled.

    Always good to back a horse with a late start…

  • Carmen

    This seems very early, especially for CBS.

    In the past, it seemed like NBC was always first up to announce the fall schedule.

  • John A

    Whats so hard about 10pm Tuesday that its called a ‘Death Slot’? All POI has to get is a 2,0 in that slot. Surely it can get that.

  • Ultima

    @John A
    Whats so hard about 10pm Tuesday that its called a ‘Death Slot’?

    The past THREE shows that aired in that timeslot on CBS were canceled! It’s been a full two seasons since they had a show there that was renewed… that’s basically forever! ;)

  • Cyrax86

    So yeah, what’s the deal with Unforgettable? Why couldn’t they start it a month earlier to have all the episodes fit the schedule? Maybe they are saving some episodes for next Summer already?

  • rob60990

    Wow CBS announcing already? Well they do the same thing pretty much every year premiering majority of their shows on premiere week except Survivor which starts a week earlier. Only We Are Men is delayed a week which will at least give 2 Broke Girls & Mom a bit of a boost in premiere week.
