CBS juggles their fall schedule

For years, CBS has been the most stable of the big four networks.

They’ve been picky about the shows they’ve picked up – and patient when deciding which shows to cancel.

CBS was a little more rash when it came to cancellations this season, dumping the long-running ‘CSI: New York’ and shuttling the fan favorite ‘Vegas’ after one season. Also, negotiations for 'Criminal Minds' went down to the wire.

In looking at their new schedule, not much really stands out – except for their decision to move ‘Hawaii Five-0’ from Mondays to Fridays. That essentially is saying they’re trying to kill the show.

Fans of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ – which I am one – should probably ready themselves for the fact that this will be the final season.

In addition to ‘Hawaii Five-0’s’ move, CBS also has put off comedy ‘Mike and Molly’ to the midseason. This is actually a pretty good idea – because a handful of CBS’ new comedies are bound to bomb and ‘Mike and Molly’ can easily take over that timeslot with a built-in fanbase. 

Here is CBS’ fall schedule:

8 p.m. – How I Met Your Mother
