CBS has announced a couple of schedule changes for Monday night out of respect for the tragic events in Paris, France.
Previously scheduled terrorist themed episodes of Supergirl and NCIS: Los Angeles have replaced.
In place of How Does She Do It?, CBS will run the Thanksgiving themed Supergirl ep, Livewire; in place of Defectors (about ISIS recruiting young women), the network will air the NCIS:LA ep, The Long Goodbye. Follow the jump for episode information.
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.
After five seasons in which NCIS garnered ever better ratings, someone [CBS? NCIS: LA creator Shane Brennan] had the bright idea, “Why don’t we make a spin-off/companion series?” And so, in the fullness of time [or about a month before the end of the seventh season, take your pick], NCIS ran a two-part story, Legendary, that introduced an east coast-based team out of the NCIS Office for Special Projects – which would’ve been highly rated and made that spin-off happen even if the two-parter hadn’t ended with one of the LA team riddled with bullets in the final few minutes.
The Associated Press is reporting that CBS, the last network to hold its upfront, has picked up NBC cast-off, Medium – and is moving The Mentalist into the overcrowded swirl of programming that is Thursday night. Medium will be paired with Ghost Whisperer on Friday nights, as predicted by EW TV writer Michael Ausiello, while The Mentalist will anchor the Thursday line-up at 10/9c.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the network has added four shows – three dramas and one comedy – to its 2009-10 fall schedule.
Mid-season replacements include the returning Flashpoint and Rules of Engagement, plus new series The Bridge [a new Canadian cop show], Miami Trauma [starring Jeremy Northam, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer], Undercover Boss [CEOs disguise themselves as regular workers at their own companies], and Arranged Marriage [reality TV – still looking for its absolutely lowest of the lowest common denominator].
