No Men On Mondays
Two and a Half Men is no longer CBS' golden goose. The comedy, which currently airs on Monday nights, is getting bumped from its time slot. The network has confirmed that this fall, Men is moving to Thursdays.
CBS has unveiled its revamped schedule for the upcoming fall season. There are plenty of new offerings including the Dennis Quaid drama Vegas, as well as the modernized Sherlock Holmes adaptation, Elementary.
But one of the biggest additions is the freshman comedy, Partners. The series will debut in the 8:30 p.m. ET/PT time slot, followed by 2 Broke Girls. So where does that leave the long-running Two and a Half Men?
CBS President Nina Tassler revealed, "Big Bang Theory is a remarkably broad show, and we needed to find a show that is as broad as it [to put after it]."
They also wanted to give Partners a prime lead-in that could help it grow and find an audience. "We want to put it in a spot where it won't have pressure," Tassler explained.
It also doesn't hurt that both Big Bang and Men are Chuck Lorre productions. They're practically TV family.
