CBS’ action-packed hit reboot of Hawaii Five-0 has been purchased by TNT for its primetime line-up. The series will premiere on Thursday, August 8th in the 9/8C timeslot and will be aired in two-episode blocks.
When Hawaii Five-0 returns on Monday, January 14th (11/10C), the big mystery will be the identity of the person who kills an O’ahu State University professor. There will be three main suspects – his boss, his teaching assistant and one of his students. The big kicker is that – for the first time on primetime television – the culprit will be chosen by you, the audience, in real time! How cool is that?
CBS has revealed the dates for season finales for its 2010-11 programming schedule. Included are two-hour finales for The Amazing Race, Survivor: Redemption Island [and, of course, the Survivor: Redemption Island Live Reunion Show, and The Mentalist. The complete list of upcoming CBS season finales follows the jump.
Hawaii Five-0 [CBS, Mondays, 10/9C] features characters whose names are familiar, and the setting that comes with the title, but it is not your father’s/grandfather’s Hawaii Five-0. It is a fast-paced, well written, fresh take on cop shows that has energy to burn and charisma to spare.
The news that CBS, long the most stable of networks for programming, had axed seven shows – including some that were doing well in their timeslots [Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs, Cold Case] – came as a shock to fans of those shows. Now CBS is presenting a new schedule designed to give their five new fall shows the best possible situations, ratings-wise.
The five new series [three dramas, two comedies] premiering in the fall are: the reboot of Hawaii Five-0, The Defenders, Blue Bloods, $#*! My Dad Says and Mike & Molly. The Criminal Minds Spin-off is a mid-season show. Show descriptions and the full CBS fall schedule follow the jump.
