CBS Mixes Up Thursday Comedy Block; Schedules Two Series

CBS’ Bad Teacher

CBS is making some changes to its Thursday comedy block, and adding a returning series to its Friday drama lineup.

Beginning February 27th, the first lineup back after the Olympics, Two and a Half Men will move 9, with The Crazy Ones moving to 930.  Since its launch, The Crazy Ones has done okay.  In recent weeks, Two and a Half Men has regularly built from The Crazy Ones, which may have prompted the move.  The changes make sense to me, with three multi-camera comedies airing together, and the single camera comedy ending the block.

On April 24th, new single-camera comedy, Bad Teacher, will begin airing at 930, replacing The Crazy Ones, which wraps up a week earlier (April 17th).  Given its late premiere date, Bad Teacher will only have a few weeks to prove itself worthy of returning for another season.

The other major change to the CBS lineup is on Fridays.  Beginning April 4th, the third season of Unforgettable will kick off at 8, leading into Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods.  Current timeslot occupant, Undercover Boss will have wrapped up its 15-episode season order by that time.

What do you think of the changes?  Will they bring improvement?  Sound off below!
