    Based on the schedules released so far, I think I have more shows arriving mid-season that I'm excited about than what is on the fall schedule.

    Oh nice, thanks for that. I've been a big fan of Purefoy since A Knight's Tale so I'm excited to see him play the serial killer.

    Because it's one of their biggest time-slots of the week, and they need something to replace Desperate Housewives. Seems like a pretty good fit to me...

    At least ABC isn't one of those networks that routinely lets sports screw up their Sunday night schedule! I don't care how good a show is, if it's on CBS on Sunday night, it's not for me.

    Good to see Kevin bacon is smart enough to know 22 episodes for dramas is too much.

    Well, I suspect what he thinks is it's too much work. Or at least more than he wants to do.

    I will have to look at Made In Jersey (obviously)!! No idea what that is hahahaha.

    Vegas isn't a revival of the same Vegas that was on ABC years ago, is it?

    They seem a little dependent on unscripted shows (I am including sports and news programs in that)

    Uggh. Didn't realize this.

    Serious problem here. As Rob notes, CBS on Sundays is a guaranteed FUBAR. And as a result, I've basically killed off every CBS Sunday show I've ever watched.

    Mentalist on Sunday? I like this show, but enough to put up with CBS shenanigans? We'll see. One or two missed final scenes, and it's goodbye Patrick Jane.:mad:

    Wow, that sucks. I used to really like The Mentalist! Until now, that is. Any show that's on CBS on Sundays sucks automatically.

    According to EW.com, that has yet to be determined (both the if and when).

    Every CBS show on Sunday I pad an hour. Is it a tuner issue for you?

    Vegas sounds a bit more intriguing...
