Fall TV Preview: CBS

CBS
MONDAYS: Comedy reigns supreme again, with HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER leading into the new 2 BROKE GIRLS. A revamped TWO AND A HALF MEN with Ashton Kutcher anchors the night with returning MIKE & MOLLY following. HAWAII FIVE-0 sticks around for stability at 10.

TUESDAYS: Two hours of NCIS and NCIS: LA stay where they are, with the new UNFORGETTABLE at 10 pm.

FRIDAYS: A GIFTED MAN is new at 8, followed by CSI: NY and then BLUE BLOODS.
What I Will Watch: Nothing
HOURS: 0
GRADE: B+ (It’s great to see CBS continuing to program scripted shows on Fridays)

SATURDAYS: Kudos to CBS for scheduling a scripted show on this night, even though its just one: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT at 8 pm. Still, I give the network credit for doing so. Personally, though, if any of the other comedies tank, RULES will be quickly yanked from this spot and plugged in to fill that hole.
What I Will Watch: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
HOURS: 0.5
GRADE: B (for the sole reason that the net did what no other network has done in years: programmed something other than reality on the night)

SUNDAYS: Mostly the same: 60 MINUTES, THE AMAZING RACE, then a relocated THE GOOD WIFE, followed by CSI: MIAMI
What I Will Watch: Nothing
HOURS: 0
GRADE: C
