CBS Makes Some Big Changes
When you’re #1, you would think you wouldn’t make too many changes, right?
Not CBS, who is making some big changes to its line-up this fall including a pretty big shakeup of its successful Monday night line-up…
First, the network is moving “The Big Bang Theory” to Thursdays at 8, which makes some sense since “Bang” has proven it can work without “Men” and that would give CBS another comedy block on a very important night. But since they were already winning Thursdays at 8 with “Survivor,” I’m a little skeptical.
Second, they’re moving “CSI:NY” to Fridays at 9. That actually makes perfect sense because Friday nights on CBS are known for procedurals and “NY” would be competing directly against “Law & Order: LA” if it stayed on Wednesday. But Fridays are known to be where shows go to die.
But here’s the big one. CBS is moving “CSI:Miami” to Sundays at 10 p.m. That’s right. Against “Sunday Night Football.” And with the slipping ratings this one has been experiencing, CBS could have some trouble here—at least for the first half of the season.
I can’t help but wonder if the age of “CSI” is about to come to an end…
