CBS Shuffles Schedule: Elementary to Sundays, Rush Hour Added to Thursday Slot

at .

We've said it before, and it bears repeating. The only constant is change.

In this case, viewers may be pleased with the changes CBS is making to its schedule at midseason. 

Although the net doesn't have a lot of new one-hour programming, they still need room for what lies ahead. To that end, they have decided to premiere Rush Hour Thursdays at 10, which means moving Elementary.

Elementary relies heavily upon DVR traffic, so ratings won't take at hit. It's moving to Sundays after The Good Wife. Nice companion, we think.

The chucks the low profile CSI: Cyber to Wednesdays for a two-night run. Seems like a survive or die situation, after which time it will be replaced by Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders to partner with the flagship series.
