CBS has released their new schedule for the 2008 – 2009 season. Some existing shows made it onto the list while, sadly, some favorites did not.
Returning on the fall schedule are 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, The Big Bang Theory, Cold Case, Criminal Minds, CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Ghost Whisperer, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Numb3rs, Survivor, Two and a Half Men, The Unit, and Without a Trace.
Interestingly, Christine was “on the bubble” for some time and was poised to move to ABC if CBS had cancelled it. Not only did CBS renew the series but they also gave it a full 22 episode order. That’s a first for that sitcom. The other bubble sitcom, Rules of Engagement, will return to TV midseason.
