With less cancellations and pick ups than other broadcast networks (CBS didn’t have that many slots to fill) the biggest surprises were time slot shifts for The Good Wife, which moves from tuesday at 10 to sunday at 9 and CSI, which for the first time in as long as I can remember is moving from it’s thursday at 9 home to wednesday at 10 pm. Tuesday at 10 is now home to Unforgettable about a detective who remembers everything and Person of Interest, (that’s them filming above) the new drama from JJ Abrams takes CSI’s old slot. Michael Emerson seems to be evoking shades of Ben Linus in the creepy promo.
2 Broke Girls starring Kat Dennings takes the coveted post How I Met Your Mother slot.
The supernatural medical drama A Gifted Man joins Blue Bloods on friday and the new sitcom, How To Be A Gentleman starring David Hornsby (Rickety Cricket) and Kevin Dillon.
