CBS Upfront: ‘Mentalist’ Shifts, Monday Comedy Shuffles

May 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

CBS is shifting first-year hit “The Mentalist” to Thursdays and slightly shaking up its Monday comedy lineup.
The generally stable network is taking a couple of dice-rolls next season, though compared to ABC and NBC, it promises to be an island of stability, according to the fall schedule just released by the network in New York.
For TVWeek’s comprehensive coverage of the upfront presentations, visit the Upfront Navigator page.
Highlights include “The Mentalist” moving to Thursdays at 10 p.m., behind “CSI,” and “The Big Bang Theory” shifting to 9:30 p.m. Monday behind “Two and a Half Men.” New drama “Three Rivers” has landed at Sundays at 10 p.m. NBC drama “Medium” will relocate to CBS on Fridays at 9 p.m.
