The CSI franchise – which includes the new spinoff CSI: Cyber – moves to Sundays after The Good Wife, and The Big Bang Theory will start off the season on Mondays to help launch fall, according to CBS’ new schedule released today.
NFL Football will debut on Thursdays this fall with a total of eight games. Afterwards, the Eye’s winning comedy lineup will return Oct. 30, which includes TBBT at 8. The Amazing Race moves to Fridays.
And this will be the final season of Two and A Half Men. A “season-long event” is planned for the Chuck Lorre comedy.
Here is the schedule:
Mike & Molly, The Mentalist and Undercover Boss will return later in the season.
The new fall series are the drama Madam Secretary, starring Téa Leoni as the newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State; NCIS New Orleans, a spinoff of NCIS that stars Scott Bakula; Scorpion, a drama starring Elyes Gabel, Robert Patrick and Katharine McPhee that is inspired by the true story of an eccentric genius and his team of brilliant misfits working to protect the U.S. from high-tech threats; the psychological thriller Stalker, starring Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott as detectives who investigate stalking incidents; and the ensemble comedy The McCarthys, starring Laurie Metcalf, Jack McGee, Tyler Ritter and Joey McIntyre as members of a sports-crazed Boston family.
The drama Battle Creek from producers Vince Gilligan and David Shore and The Odd Couple that stars Matthew Perry will bow later this season.
