CBS Unveils Fall Lineup, Moves The Good Wife and CSI

by at . Comments

CBS unveiled its 2011-12 fall lineup today, and it contains a few surprises.

CSI is shifting from its age-old Thursday slot to Wednesdays at 10 p.m., while The Good Wife is relocating from Tuesdays at 10 p.m. to Sundays at 9 pm.

Person of Interest, starring Michael Emerson and James Caviezel and produced by J.J. Abrams, is CBS' best-testing pilot in years, the network says (and apparently believes). It will claim the competitive 9 p.m. Thursday slot alongside Grey’s Anatomy and Bones.

Two and a Half Men - now starring Ashton Kutcher - is back Mondays at 9!

Ok, again you have messed up my evening tv. WHY can't you put the reality shows on at 10 and leave the good shows on earlier. I love CSI and the Mentalist but I have to work nights and they come on too late. The are not allowed to watch Big brother, and it takes up good air time. I am about ready to give up tv all together.

I"m not sure why you guys always change the time slots for shows that clearly are popular????? The Good Wife is an excellent show,
Rules of Engagement is also an excellant show. It obviously made it in the time slot it was in. Also New Adventures of Old Christine, really WHERE IS IT!!!!!!!

In the past when networks move series to Sunday nights, its on the border of being dumped. WHY? The Good Wife is one of the better series in the last three years. The writers are great and have thought provoking imaginations. The young lady that plays Kalinda is also very very good. All things being equal the entire cast and show is A+. Please don't take it off,I'll watch it if it comes on at two in the morning.

Nothing says "ending the series" like changing the time...as much as TV seems to love The Good Wife, moving her to Sunday night spells "the end".
CSI to Wednesday night? Well, it has become the Fishburne hour or Amazing Ray Hour, so change the name and keep the big STAR Mendelsohn put in, and say goodbye to CSI.

So long Rules of Engagement...I don't see how a show will make it on a Saturday night @ 8.

Actually Suspect Behaviour didn't pull in good ratings. It would lose about 25-40% of Criminal Minds viewership. I love normal Criminal Minds and I hated Suspect Behaviour, I was one of those who tuned out at 10pm. Also, audiences didn't enjoy the cast.
Impressive as they were, audiences didn't like them, there were always articles about it. I think the time change is weird for Thw Good Wife, but hopefully good. I know I will still tune in at 9pm.

I wonder why the changed the time for Good Wife but I'll watched still it's on my DVR.

Ok, I dont like this at all.
1. I can't give up Desperate Housewives for The Good Wife.
2. I really dont think Two and Half Men will succeed past episode five. Ashton just isn't that funny. They could have gotten another funny actor who make jokes naturally.
3. I will just have to see if whatever they put on Tuesday night is interesting. Maybe I will just seriously watch Body of Proof instead of recording it all the time.
