Stability is the Name of the Game on CBS’s Fall 2012 Schedule

CBS has been the network with the biggest overall audience for like a decade or so and it is likely to stay that way with a very stable new fall slate for 2012. The question is can they get the younger viewers that all the networks covet? With the addition of a new comedy called Partners from the Will & Grace creators starring Michael Urie and David Krumholtz as business partners and best friends, one gay and one straight, they could hit pay dirt. The show is joining the Monday comedy lineup which will now be anchored by last year’s breakout hit 2 Broke Girls as Two and a Half Men moves to Thursday…. The other big move is The Mentalist heading to Sundays following CBS’s best show The Good Wife… New dramas include Elementary with Johnny Lee Miller as a modern-day Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as his Watson, Vegas starring Dennis Quaid in the city’s 60’s heyday, and a law drama called Made in Jersey with Kyle MacLachlan and Janet Montgomery... Midseason brings the cop drama Golden Boy, the comedy Friend Me with Christopher Mintz-Plasse and the reality show The Job…. Making room for these new contenders meant it was cancellation time for A Gifted Man, Unforgettable, Rob, and CSI Miami after 10 seasons… Also, there’s no official word on the return of Rules of Engagement, but the veteran comedy is rumored to be returning for one final 13 episode season later in the year.
