CBS’s New Fall 2010 Schedule: Cancels Ghost Whisperer

CBS Shifts Schedule, Unveils Male-Dominated New Shows

Jim Parsons and William Shatner

CBS will add only five new series to its fall lineup, taking an if-it-ain’t broke approach that will bring back 18 series, though some of them will be in unproven new time slots. The male-dominated new shows include the previously anticipated Hawaii Five-0 reboot, a new legal drama, The Defenders, starring Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell, a family cop drama starring Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg, and $#*! My Dad Says, a William Shatner vehicle inspired by a Twitter feed.

Fall TV Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren’t?

Also joining the lineup is and Chuck Lorre’s romantic comedy Mike & Molly, with Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy. Hawaii Five-O already has high expectations not only because of fondness for the original series, but also because the cast include Daniel Dae Kim in his first post-Lost role and Alex O’Loughlin hoping the third time will be the charm after two previous CBS series — Moonlight and Three Rivers — were each canceled after less than one season.

Check out our day-by-day guide to all the networks’ fall schedules

The Big Bang Theory, a major success as part of CBS’ Monday night comedy block, will move to Thursdays at 8 to launch a new hour of comedy. Survivor will leave Thursdays for Wednesday nights at 8. And, in perhaps the network’s riskiest move, CSI: NY will move to Fridays at 9, a timeslot where shows often struggle to thrive. CSI: Miami will move to Sundays at 10.

CBS cancels seven series, including Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs and Cold Case

The network ordered a Criminal Minds spinoff starring Forest Whitaker for midseason.

Details on the new shows:

Hawaii Five-O: Kim and O’Loughlin’s characters solve crimes in a drama CBS president describes as being “character driven with great humor.”

The Defenders: In another drama billed as funny and character-based, Belushi and O’Connell play a pair of colorful Las Vegas defense attorneys.

Blue Bloods: Selleck and Wahlberg anchor this NYPD drama about a family so into being cops that their blood runs blue. Not literally.

$#*! My Dad Says: This hard-to-type and harder to pronounce comedy was inspired by a Twitter feed about a dad who says the wrong thing, wears not enough clothes and generally embarrasses his son.

Mike and Molly: Gardell and McCarthy play a cop and teacher who find love at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.

Latest upfront headlines (including ‘Ghost Whisperer’ scoop)


Image Credit: Vivian Zink/ABC* CBS’ daring new fall schedule (Big Bang to Thursday! Survivor to Wednesday! CSI: NY to Friday!) can be found here.

* All signs point to ABC rescuing Ghost Whisperer from CBS’ trash heap. An Alphabet reprieve for Old Christine, however, appears unlikely. And I think we can all agree that that sucks something major.

* The final updates have been made to my Bubble Show Scorecard. Did your favorites make the cut? Most of mine did — and, really, that’s all that matters.

* At Adult Swim’s upfront presentation this evening, the cable net is expected to unveil a trailer for the new season of Rob Corddry’s uproariously twisted onetime Web series Children’s Hospital (bowing July 11). An exclusive first look at said trailer is below.

Breaking: CBS cancels ‘Ghost Whisperer’ and ‘Old Christine’

Also gone: Gary Unmarried, Cold Case, Miami Medical, Accidentally on Purpose, and Numb3rs.

Medium and Rules of Engagement, meanwhile, have been renewed.

Fans may want to hold off on eulogizing Ghost and Christine for a day or two, however. There’s an outside chance that ABC (which co-owns GW and has long coveted Christine) may swoop in and rescue one or both.

“There’s a 50/50 shot that Christine will move to ABC,” says one source. A reprieve for Ghost appears less likely. Final decisions are expected later this week.

Fox Fall Schedule 2010-11: Less American Idol

Fox’s Fall Lineup: More Laughs, Less Idol

Tim   Molloy

Will Arnett

Fox’s new primetime lineup will feature more comedy and a little less American Idol, the network announced Monday. Fox will take the bold step of cutting the long-running (and sometimes loooong) show and will introduce three dramas and four comedies, including one that pairs Will Arnett and Keri Russell.

The show, Running Wilde, will join Glee as part of the network’s new Tuesday night comedy block.

Fall TV Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren’t?

Fox has led in ratings for the past six seasons, and the new slate attempts to fill the rare holes in its lineup: The Tuesday night shows give it a new foothold in comedy, and Steven Spielberg‘s dino-centric Terra Nova may take the place of the departing 24 as the network’s action-adventure calling card.

Get the scoop on all the new fall shows

“With three daring new dramas, a fresh new animated series and three new live-action comedies, we’re positioned to rebuild the Fox comedy brand, introduce the next generation of unique characters and deliver an even more compelling experience for our viewers next season,” Fox president of entertainment Kevin Reilly said in a statement.

NBC announces fall schedule

Fox also announced that a special episode of Glee will follow Super Bowl XLV and that the show will air in the spring on Wednesdays after Idol. The network also plans to reduce the Tuesday Idol performance shows to 90 minutes and the Wednesday results shows to 30 minutes.

New shows include:

Raising Hope: A comedy from Greg Garcia (My Name Is Earl) about a good-hearted screw-up (The Beast‘s Lucas Neff) who tries to raise his infant daughter with help from his unusual family. Other stars include Martha Plimpton (How To Make It In America), Garret Dillahunt (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Cloris Leachman.

Running Wilde: A romantic comedy from Arrested Development‘s Jim Vallely, Mitch Hurwitz and Will Arnett that stars Arnett as an immature playboy the network describes as “trying desperately to win (or buy)” the heart of his childhood sweetheart, a liberal humanitarian played by Russell.

Lonestar: A drama set in the Texas oil industry and premiering this fall stars newcomer James Wolk as a man caught between two lives and two women. It’s created by Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman (Party of Five).

Terra Nova: A Steven Spielberg produced action-adventure series follows a family back to prehistoric Earth as they try to save humanity. The series has yet to be scheduled.

Ride-Along: A new cop drama from creator Shawn Ryan (The Shield) about Chicago’s most notorious cops. Stars include Jason Clarke (Public Enemies), Jennifer Beals (Lie to Me) and Delroy Lindo (Kidnapped).

Mixed Signals: An ensemble comedy debuting in the spring and created by Bob Fisher (Wedding Crashers) about three longtime friends trying to balance relationships and freedom. Stars include Nelson Franklin (I Love You, Man), David Denman (The Office), Kris Marshall (Human Target), Liza Lapira (Dexter) and Alexandra Breckenridge (Family Guy).

Bob’s Burgers: An animated series joining Sunday’s animated block from creator Loren Bouchard (Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist) about a family with a struggling burger joint.

(In case you’re wondering, Simon Cowell’s The X Factor isn’t scheduled to debut on Fox until fall 2011.)

NBC’s Fall 2010 Schedule

NBC Announces Fall Schedule


NBC’s fall lineup pairs Chuck with two action dramas, introduces a Law & Order block and adds two shows to its Thursday-night comedies. It also pushes Parks and Recreation, superhero drama The Cape and other green-lit series to midseason.

Fall TV Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren’t?

The Event, a global-conspiracy-theory drama, and Chase, which follows U.S. marshals who track fugitives, will air after Chuck on Monday nights.

The spin-off Law & Order: Los Angeles will wrap up a Wednesday night that also includes the J.J. Abrams’ drama Undercovers and Law & Order: SVU.

Thursdays keep Community, 30 Rock and The Office together, but adds Outsourced, the network’s new sitcom about a call center in India. Becki Newton’s romantic-comedy anthology Love Bites will follow at 10/9c.

Tuesdays will feature two hours of Biggest Loser, followed by Parenthood.

The Jimmy Smits drama Outlaw, about a Supreme Court justice who resigns from the bench to open his own firm, will get a shot on Friday nights, where it’s paired with a new reality show called School Pride, a family-oriented hour about education, which will share the timeslot with a second run of Who Do You Think You Are, and Dateline.

Several other green-lit series, including Perfect Couples, Harry’s Law and Friends With Benefits, have also been shuffled to midseason.

If you’re depressed about your favorite NBC show having been canceled, there is some good news: Angela Bromstad, president of NBC Entertainment, announced that she was still in talks with the producers of Heroes and Law & Order to possibly wrap up those series with special-event movies that would air some time over the next year.

Image Credit: Perry: Sara De Boer/Retna; Tina Gill/PR Photos (2)ABC released its fall 2010 schedule in anticipation of its presentation to advertisers this afternoon in New York. New series for the 2010-11 season are Better Together,  Body of Proof, Detroit 1-8-7, Happy Endings, Mr. Sunshine, My Generation, No Ordinary Family, Off the Map, Secret Millionaire, and The Whole Truth. ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson told EW that V will be back midseason in the Dancing with the Stars Results Show slot, behind the network’s other high-concept show No Ordinary Family.

“It was a Sophie’s Choice,” McPherson said about his decision to renew V and cancel FlashForward. “In the end, FlashForward didn’t engage audiences like we hoped. For V, I get more anecdotal calls and emails than any other show on the schedule. A huge part of rebuilding the network is about taking chances. Some shows just don’t work out.”
