I was thrilled that The Mentalist got a Season 7 but then found out it was only 13 episodes long instead of the ususal 22. Now, on top of that I find that it won't be on until the second half of the season (January???) -- I'll suffer withdrawal by that time. Also, they didn't say what night they will be on when they finally do come back -- please don't let it be Sunday or Thursday since I believe sports was put in on Thursday also. I was hoping for a Sept. start so that possibly they could prove themselves worthy of a full season. I just hope we stil get the 13 episodes at least and that they don't change their minds before January.

Never watch regular programing on weekends. Too many real good show on PBS and Knowledge network.
With this line up I can go to bed early every night.

When one of the new shows fails and they have a hole in the schedule they need to fill.

NCIS:LA up against The Blacklist and Castle? That's dumb!

I agree - I think NICS LA is just going to fade away. Too bad.

Only till November. Then the Blacklist moves to Thursdays and State of Affairs takes it's place.

Well, that'll be the end of CSI. As soon as they move a show to Sunday night, it's the kiss of death. Not since Murder She Wrote and Touched By An Angel, has CBS been able to "own" a Sunday night time slot....All the network programming execs are idiots.

ummm Mentalist has survived in that timeslot... With Sunday football delays, that show will be heading mostly to On Demand..... Not that much need to watch it live because of mostly stand alone stories.. I am curious if it is a full season order and it may slide into a spot if shows don't work... CSI Miami also did fine until it ran out of steam... This is probably last season of CSI anyway... I wonder if it ends with Grissom coming back in person this time...
