CBS doesn't simply think that Person of Interest is its best pilot in years. The network is actually putting that belief into action.

As revealed in its newly-released fall schedule, CBS will air this crime thriller in the prime slot of 9 p.m. on Thursdays. Why does it have such confidence that a new drama can compete against Grey's Anatomy and Bones?
