While the other networks are trying different strategies for their fall 2012 schedules, CBS is going the other way. With the exception of Survivor – which opens with a ninety-minute premiere on September 19th – all of CBS’ shows will premiere the week of September 24th.
The only major program shifts will be moving Two and a Half Men to Thursdays and The Mentalist to Sunday nights, following The Good Wife.
