The CBS fall schedule, announced this week, rearranges some programs, but there are only five new entries.
Two new sitcoms arrive: "Mike and Molly" about two overweight people who met at Overeaters Anonymous and "$#*! My Dad Says" with William Shatner as the cranky Dad whose real-life son has been Tweeting his unprintable musings.
Also joining the line-up are a remake of Hawaii Five-O (YES, the lead character is named Steve McGarrett) and two new dramas. "The Defenders" is an "irreverent" law show set in Las Vegas where Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi defend "the little guy." "Blue Bloods" is about a family of cops in New York City with Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg and Len Cariou. (I just hope the characters don't affect those terrible cop/New York accents done so terribly on "NYPD Blue.")
Big Bang Theory" moves to Thursday to be followed by a new sitcom; "Miami CSI" (so tired) moves to Sundays and "Survivor: Nicaragua" goes to Wednesdays.
Conspicuously absent from the CBS schedule are "Ghost Whisperer," "Cold Case," and "Numbers" - all cancelled (Rob Morrow already has a new ABC gig). "Medium," "Gary Unmarried" and "New Adventures of Old Christine" should be back later in the year.
