CBS will debut its last new in-season series of 2015-16 Thursday night with “Rush Hour.” It’s an adaptation of the Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker movie franchise, with Jon Foo and Justin Hires filling the respective starring roles.

It’s also, true to the CBS brand, a cop show. Will that, plus name recognition from the movies (the last of which, it should be noted, was released almost nine years ago), drive people to tune in?

Vote below in the poll and share your thoughts on how “Rush Hour” will do in the comments. Thursdays at 10 haven’t been a great spot for CBS this season, although “Elementary” did manage to score a renewal with same-day adults 18-49 numbers barely above 1.0. Can “Rush Hour” pull off a similar feat?
