On Mondays, How I Met Your Mother and 2 Broke Girls will be in their regular 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. timeslots respectively. The network is intending to launch two new comedies in between these comedy staples:
We Are Men, a single-camera comedy starring Tony Shalhoub and Jerry O'Connell, chronicles the lives of four single guys living in the same apartment. It will air at 8:30 PM after How I Met Your Mother. Producer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men) has added another show to his repertoire, the Anna Faris-led comedy Mom. Faris stars as Christy, a newly-sober single mother whose patience is tested when her recovering alcoholic mother (Allison Janney) reenters her life. The show will air Mondays at 9:30 p.m.
Thursdays will have a similar strategy, with The Big Bang Theory leading off the night at 8:00 p.m. and Two and a Half Men moving to 9:30 p.m. The network is premiering two new comedies in between: The Millers, airing at 8:30 p.m. stars Will Arnett and Margo Martindale as bickering son and mother. The Crazy Ones, airing at 9:00 p.m. is a single-camera comedy about the world of advertising, starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
CBS is only premiering one new drama in the fall, the high-concept political drama Hostages. The show stars Toni Collette, a surgeon who gets thrust into a shady political conspiracy and will air on Mondays at 10:00 p.m.
On the move this fall is Hawaii Five-O, which jumps from Mondays at 10:00 p.m. to Fridays at 9:00 p.m. and Person of Interest, which moves from Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. to Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m.
All other shows are slated to premiere in the same timeslots as the spring.
