(New programs in BOLD and UPPER CASE with some added snark, all times ET/PT)
8 PM – The Big Bang Theory/2 Broke Girls
8:30 PM – Mom
I'm a tad uncertain of this, since handling crisis events like international terrorism or espionage could potentially offend someone whose opinion matters to CBS management, so it has the potential to become a "domestic militia or Christian religious nut of the week" show very quickly. Then it will slip into the Offend/Bore matrix, and could be canned by mid-season.
10 PM – NCIS: Los Angeles
8 PM – NCIS
9 PM – NCIS: NEW ORLEANS According to CBS the US Navy is a hotbed of homicide. On the upside it ensures that Scott Bakula will be on television somewhere, which is an FCC licensing requirement.
10 PM – Person Of Interest
8 PM – Survivor
9 PM – Criminal Minds
10 PM – STALKER - 2 sexy cops handle cases of sex-obsessed stalkers who are stalking sexy people. Feh.
Beginning Oct 30:
8 PM – The Big Bang Theory
8:30 PM – The Millers
9 PM – Two And A Half Men - Is starting its 12th and final season. While the show was crap, it was nice to see Jon Cryer make some decent money.
9:30 PM – THE MCCARTHYS - Premise They're Irish, they're loud, they're sports obsessed. I can't bring myself to care.
10 PM – Elementary
8 PM – The Amazing Race
9 PM – Hawaii Five-0
10 PM – Blue Bloods
8 PM – Crimetime Saturday - reruns.
9:00 PM – Crimetime Saturday - reruns.
10 PM – 48 Hours
7 PM – 60 Minutes - Yes, it's still on.
8 PM – MADAM SECRETARY Premise- A feisty, sexy female secretary of state solves the world's problems on a weekly basis.
Conservatives will shit on it as an overly-idealized campaign ad for Hillary Clinton, and liberals will be bored out of their skulls. Good shot of cancellation by mid-season.
9 PM – The Good Wife
10 PM – CSI/CSI: CYBER - Premise: Patricia Arquette plays the head of an elite team of cyber-crime busters chasing pornographers, identity thieves, and bloggers who say nasty things about the CBS network.
MID-SEASON: BATTLE CREEK - Premise: A rough cop in the woe-fully underfunded, under appreciated police department of Battle Creek Michigan is partnered with a slick agent from the well-funded FBI.
The biggest problem I can identify with this show is that it's Vince Gilligan's follow-up to Breaking Bad, and that is an extremely tough act to follow.
Let me know what you folks think in the comments.
