Friends, TV watchers and lovers of all things entertaining, lend me your ears (eyes?).

CBS have unveiled their Fall schedule, adding six new dramas to their line up, but sadly only two new comedy series. They are also taking some of their veteran shows and moving them to new days and timeslots.

The shows that will be finding themselves a new home are CBS stalwarts CSI and NCIS: Los Angeles and The Amazing Race is along for the ride. CSI will now solve crime on Sunday nights at 10/9C, while NCIS: LA will do the same on Mondays at 10/9C and The Amazing Race reaches its final destination on Fridays at 8/7C.

Thanks to Thursday Night Football being on, well, Thursday’s, The Big Bang Theory will move to Monday’s at 8pm, but will slide back to its Thursday spot once the NFL season ends.

The new shows to find themselves on the CBS roster this Fall are:


Madam Secretary: Newly appointed Secretary of State, Elizabeth McCord takes to office at the request of the President, after the untimely and suspicious death of her predecessor.

Scorpion: Inspired by a true story, Scorpion tells the story of the eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits who form the Homeland Security’s newest think-tank. Together become the last line of defence against the high-tech threats of the modern age.

Stalker: This psychological drama follows the detectives who investigate stalking cases in New York City.

NCIS: New Orleans: Another NCIS spin-off, this time focussing on the crimes committed by or against military personnel in New Orleans.


Battle Creek: A cop show comedy in the style of The Odd Couple.

The McCarthys: Multi-camera comedy surrounding the lives of the sports crazy McCarthy family, and son Ronny when his father decides to make him assistant coach of his High School’s basketball team.

Finally, prepare yourselves to say goodbye to Alan, Walden, Berta and co as Two and A Half Men enter their final season. After eleven years on the air, this (once great) comedy will be bidding us all farewell following their twelfth season. I loved this show once, but I must admit, after the death of Charlie Harper, the show died with it.
