    When those horrible comedies flop on Thursday CBS can always put Person of Interest back in its old slot.

    Mondays used to be their strongest night. Now I am free to sample other networks.

    When those horrible comedies flop on Thursday CBS can always put Person of Interest back in its old slot.

    CBS has three comedies not on the fall schedule (including a full season of Mike & Molly) to back up the four new ones in the fall. There’s virtually no chance that Person of Interest will move back to its old timeslot.

  • Theisssuesarenow

    Good Wife was failing Tuesdays at 10 and had to moved and it is only on the air for Emmy reasons! POT doesn’t have Emmy’s to keep it on the air! It is going to be like all the failures. To the poster that’s all about the CBS shows sucking does that mean TGW too? No it was moved because it was failing and nothing works there. It is just too much of a drama block! Just too much! TGW being here proves the point! Either the show in cancelled or moved or gets a 13 burnoff summer run!

    Person of Interest is not going to be cancelled. Even if its ratings *tank* (which I think unlikely), it’s on its third season and, for CBS more than any other network, syndication is king.

  • Carmen

    “. . .There’s virtually no chance that Person of Interest will move back to its old timeslot.”

    No, I don’t think so either at this point.

    But, to myself, though, the whole moving Of POI in the first place has a bit of a “let’s go fix something that isn’t broke’ aura about it.

  • Ben Thompson

    Big Brother is reportedly 100 days long this year, which means it would end in the first week of October.

  • Ultima

    @Theissuesarenow
    Good Wife was failing Tuesdays at 10 and had to moved and it is only on the air for Emmy reasons!

    The Good Wife is still on the air because CBS sold it into syndication and is making a profit on the show.

    POT doesn’t have Emmy’s to keep it on the air!

    Pretty sure that shows don’t need to win Emmys to get renewed. Person of Interest is a high rated drama in its third season, it will certainly be renewed for a fourth season and very likely additional seasons after that.

    13 burnoff summer run!

    I don’t thik you understand what a burn-off is. A burn off happens when a show is pulled without airing all of its ordered episodes and then the remaining episodes are aired either in the summer or in-season in a low priority timeslot (e.g. Saturdays).

    Where else would CBS have put a fourth hour of sitcoms, without changing something that was already working?

  • HV

    You forgot We Are Men, which is premiring September 30.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @HV, that info is in the release near the top.

  • SJ

    I’m just glad The Good Wife is premiering alongside the rest of CBS’ Sunday line-up. I was worried it would get pushed back because of Unforgettable. But I think at this point even CBS expects Unforgettable to become Saturday burn-off sooner rather than later.

  • Ultima

    @Ben Thompson
    Big Brother is reportedly 100 days long this year, which means it would end in the first week of October.

    Unless they started living in the house on 10 June, or CBS is just exaggerating.

    Either way, the finale will almost certainly be at 9:30pm on 18 September.

  • HV

    @Robert
    I just realized it now. I noticed though that it is not on the schedule portion.

  • Christian

    @Ben Thompson

    Maybe by the June 26th premiere, the houseguests already spent a couple of days in the house to ensure the show still ends in September.

  • Michael1

    I have a dumb question about the delayed start of “Mike & Molly”,

    In 2011, Patrick Warburton was up in arms about CBS moving “Rules of Engagement” to Saturday Night. Is it better for a show to be delayed outright, or for it to begin on Saturday Night and then move to a weeknight after another show tanks? Or was Warburton’s frustration more a culmination of year after year of being shirked?

    I mean, it’s better to be on the air, even if it’s on Saturday, right?

  • Recollected

    Is it safe to stay that Friend Me will probably never air?

  • Michael1

    Also, does anyone know if “Partners” was indeed the most watched new comedy of last season? I believe all new episodes were in the 2.0 – 2.2 range. I think “How to Live with Your Parents…” may have had higher ratings prior to the season finale of “Modern Family” but all of those subsequent 1.3′s are starting to take their toll.

  • Tony JJ

    this gets me excited for fall! :D

  • Ultima

    @Michael1
    re: Rules of Engagement vs Mike & Molly

    I think Mike & Molly is in a better situation than Rules of Engagement was. Both shows were left out of normal timeslots in the fall and had enough episodes ordered to reach ~88 total.

    The difference is that there was actually a chance that Rules of Engagement might have aired on Saturdays. If both 2 Broke Girls and How to be a Gentleman had hit, then Rules gets burned off and canceled.

    Meanwhile, there’s virtually no chance that all four of CBS’ new sitcoms will hit, so Mike & Molly will certainly air either Mondays or Thursdays. Given the full season order and the chance that at least one of four shows will bomb, it’s reasonable to expect it to be back on the schedule by November.

  • Ultima

    @Michael1
    Also, does anyone know if “Partners” was indeed the most watched new comedy of last season?

    No. Based on Nielsen’s end of season rankings, Partners was #2 in A18-49 behind How to Live With Your Parents (2.3 vs 2.4) and #4 in total viewership behind How To Live With Your Parents, Malibu Country and The Neighbors.
