CBS officially released their fall schedule today, and they certainly didn’t play it safe.  New sitcom Mike & Molly earns a prime berth in the dominant Monday comedy block, with Hawaii Five-0 taking over for CSI: Miami at 10:00.  Tuesdays continue with the NCIS franchise and The Good Wife.  Perennial Thursday victor Survivor is headed for Wednesdays, followed by Criminal Minds and new legal drama The Defenders.  CBS throws down the gauntlet to NBC’s comedies on Thursday, counterprogramming with #1 sitcom The Big Bang Theory and high-profile new laffer S#*! My Dad Says. On Fridays, Medium moves to 8:00, followed by CSI: NY in a new timeslot and new hourlong Blue Bloods at 10:00.  Saturdays are the same crime extravaganza as always.  Sundays 7:00-10:00 maintain a three hour block of unscripted television, while a displaced CSI: Miami closes out the night.  Check out the full schedule after the jump.

CBS and sister network The CW have refrained from the early pilot pickups that ABC, NBC, and Fox so readily engaged in over the last couple weeks.  No longer for CBS, who have now ordered six new series in advance of their May 19 upfront.  The network ordered two new comedies: Mike & Molly from Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory) and $#*! My Dad Says (or whatever they end up calling it), which stars William Shatner as a cantankerous father that says $#*!.  From the drama department, the Hawaii Five-0 remake, the Criminal Minds spinoff, and the legal drama Defenders will all appear on the 2010-11 scheule, while dark horse contender Blue Bloods starring Tom Selleck gained traction in the eleventh hour for a surprise order.  Check out the details on all the series after the jump.
