CBS’s Fall 2012 Schedule: TWO AND A HALF MEN Moves to Thursday, THE MENTALIST Shifted to Sunday; Sherlock Holmes Series ELEMENTARY Set for Thursday

     May 16, 2012

The upfronts are nearing an end, and we’ve already seen the new schedules from NBC, Fox, and ABC.  Now it’s CBS’s turn.  The readers of this site may not exactly be CBS’s target demo—though I’m still watching and enjoying How I Met Your Mother—but The Eye is hoping to change that with a few promising new series slated for this fall.  Shifts for returning series include moving the Ashton Kutcher-enhanced Two and a Half Men to Thursdays, while The Mentalist (which is probably your parents’ favorite show) will now air on Sunday.  Also, the young-skewing comedy 2 Broke Girls has been pushed back to the prime 9pm slot on Mondays after doing well at 8:30.  Moreover, I’m now aware that a show unironically called Crimetime Saturday exists.

As far as new series go, I’m really only keeping my eye on Elementary at this point.  I didn’t really find the need for a new Sherlock Holmes series given that we already have the beyond excellent Sherlock (and, to a lesser extent, House), but I’m willing to check out this new drama (starring Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson) to see what they’ve come up with.  Hit the jump to check out CBS’s schedule.

In case you missed any of our preview upfronts coverage, here’s a refresher:

STITCHERS: Showrunner Jeffrey Alan Schechter on the Sci-Fi Procedural

"It’s a program that anybody could join, but if you become accepted as a “stitcher,” your consciousness is put into the memories of the dead and you get to solve crimes. It’s giving voice to the victims and the dead of the world, and helping correct injustices for people who died tragically or too young."
