CBS moving 'Men,' 'Mentalist' for new season
(AP) – CBS is giving Ashton Kutcher and Simon Baker new addresses this fall, moving “Two and a Half Men” and “The Mentalist” to new nights.
“Two and a Half Men,” where Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen as the lead actor this season, will move to Thursday. “The Mentalist,” where Baker is a brainy crime-solver, shifts from Thursday to Sunday.
CBS is adding three new dramas and one comedy to its fall schedule. Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis star in the new drama “Vegas” and another new series transplants Sherlock Holmes to Manhattan.
“CSI: Miami,” “Unforgettable” and “Rob” have been cancelled.
CBS is about to win another season in the ratings race, by the largest margin by a winner over a second-place network in 23 years.
