2007 Fall Upfronts: Day Three

May 16, 2007 at 11:59 am | Posted in TV News | Leave a comment

Here’s the scoop on CBS’s fall season:

Returning Series:
How I Met Your Mother:
Survived despite cancellation rumors, airing at Monday at 8 pm.

Two and a Half Men and Rules of Engagement: Staying at Monday at 9 and 9:30 pm.

CSI: Miami: Haha, oh this show is so dumb, I chuckle just thinking about it.  Monday at 10 pm.

NCIS and The Unit: Tuesday at 8 and 9 pm.

Criminal Minds and CSI:NY: Wednesday at 9 and 10 pm.

Survivor, CSI, and Without a Trace: Thursday night.

Ghost Whisperer: Friday at 8 pm.

Numbers: Friday at 10 pm.

Cold Case and Shark: Sunday at 9 and 10 pm.

The Amazing Race: Held for midseason.

New Series:
Viva Laughlin:
I caught a little of this on BBC America when it was called Viva Blackpool.  I typically love high-concept shows, but I’m unsure about this one.  However, Hugh Jackman is producing and guest-starring, and that man knows his musical theater.  Anyway, it’s a musical (I swear) about a gambler who wants to open a casino against all odds.  (I managed to work in a bad pun and a Phil Collins reference.  I can die happy.)  Airing Sunday at 8 pm.

The Big Bang Theory: Sounds like a scripted version of Beauty and the Geek, which isn’t a bad thing.  Features Johnny Galecki from Roseanne as one of the nerds.  Airing after How I Met Your Mother as part of a “young adult comedy block,” Monday at 8:30 pm.

Cane:  This one sounds awesome.  It’s about a Cuban-American family in South Florida running a rum and sugar business, and you guessed it, it’s full of drama and intrigue.  The cast is amazing: Hector Elizondo, Nestor Carbonell, Jimmy Smits, Eddie Matos, Rita Moreno, Alona Tal, and Polly Walker all costar.  Airing Tuesday at 10 pm.

Moonlight: A ripoff of Angel.  However, that isn’t a bad thing necessarily — it’s not like we’re getting new Angel episodes.  A vampire private investigator that shuns eating people and falls in love with a mortal, a mortal who is the chosen one who can slay the vampires … just kidding.  Well, I was only kidding about the “chosen one” part.  The mortal’s a reporter.  The rest is true.  Friday at 9 pm.

Swingtown: Um, this one’s about foursomes.  I don’t know how it ended up on CBS instead of Showtime.  It stars Jack Davenport and Grant Show swinging in the 1970s.  It’s been held till midseason, which luckily gives me a lot of time to get mentally prepared for this one.
