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?

MADE IN JERSEY is a drama about a young working-class woman who uses her street smarts to compete among her pedigreed Manhattan colleagues at a prestigious New York law firm. Martina Garretti (Janet Montgomery) finds her firm’s cutthroat landscape challenging, but what she lacks in an Ivy League education she more than makes up for with tenacity and blue-collar insight. After just a few weeks, firm founder Donovan Stark (Kyle MacLachlan), takes note of Martina’s ingenuity and resourcefulness, as does her sassy secretary Cyndi Vega (Toni Trucks). With the support of her big Italian family, including her sexy older sister Bonnie (Erin Cummings), Martina is able to stay true to her roots as a bold, passionate lawyer on the rise in a new intimidating environment.
Quote:
VEGAS, a drama inspired by the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a fourth-generation rancher tasked with bringing order to Las Vegas in the 1960s, a gambling and entertainment mecca emerging from the tumbleweeds. Ralph Lamb (Quaid) wants to be left in peace to run his ranch, but Las Vegas is now swelling with outsiders and corruption which are intruding on his simple life. Recalling Lamb's command as a military police officer during World War II, the Mayor appeals to his sense of duty to look into a murder of a casino worker – and so begins Lamb’s clash with Vincent Savino (Chiklis), a ruthless Chicago gangster who plans to make Vegas his own. Assisting Lamb in keeping Law And Order are his two deputies: his diplomatic, even-keeled brother Jack (Jason O'Mara) and his charming but impulsive son, Dixon (Taylor Handley). Ambitious Assistant District Attorney Katherine O'Connell (Carrie-Anne Moss), who grew up on the ranch next to the Lambs, also lends a hand in preserving justice. In Vegas, two powerful men – Lamb and Savino – are engaged in a fierce battle for control of the budding oasis, and for both of them, folding is not an option.

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

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.

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?

Sundays are usually too crowded to be wasting tuners on double-duty just because a frikkin' network in the 21st century hasn't learned how to schedule its shows.

I do the same, but I STILL wish that CBS would just acknowledge that football is going to run long and either move 60 minutes back to 8PM and scrap their current 10PM show, or scrap 60 minutes during foorball season (or as a compromise, they could schedule a few 60 Minute special additions which are 1 longer story that take 30 minutes).

But I bet that the overruns HELP and not HURT their ratings. People watching the NFL games just stick with the network and watch everything live. We do that quite often since it's just easier sometimes.

They've learned it's called the biggest lead in they could hope for. NFL football makes more money for the network than anything else. Sunday nights on Fox and CBS during football season I just watch on Hulu or download.

Apparently "The Good Wife" gets its best ratings when NFL football runs over and pushes it into the 10 p.m. hour. Sucks for "The Mentalist," though. But I'll just pad Mentalist for a one-hour overrun and watch it later in the week.

I'll watch "Made In Jersey" for no other reason than it's got Jersey people outsmarting NYC people -- and a hawt Janet Montgomery. Even though she's British. (Born in Jersey? Sure! The original Jersey!) Now if we could just get Emily Mortimer, Keira Knightley, and Kate Beckinsale to be her equally hot British cousins on the show...

Hopefully not. I have an Elite, so I can diddle with four tuners. The challenge is Sundays is my BIG cable night, and by far my busiest night of the week.. It's the night HBO runs all their dramas & comedies, plus SHO stuff (Big C, etc), plus AMC (Mad Men, Walking Dead, etc), plus yada yada. I also pad many shows, just to be safe, requiring me to keep a close eye and make sure everything gets recorded. Plus Once Upon a Time, plus Simpson's and more, plus... well, you get the idea. And there are one-offs that add even more to the schedule, like Sherlock right now. I record the 1am Sherlock, because I actually have all four tuners going at whatever time it first airs.

Mentalist just adds one more straw to the poor dromedary's back.

I think it may cause a bigger problem for the average viewer, especially DVR users. Mentalist's Thursday airing probably doesn't have much conflict for the average two-tuner viewer. Sunday might. And now you have to pad. I can envision gazillions of pissed off viewers.

Oh well, I'm sure they have thought thru everything, and this is what they think is best for THEM.

Always, always, always, PAD CBS 1 hour (at minimum) for Sunday primetime.

I can't emphasize that enough.

Pad CBS on Sundays.

I hate this trend. Do foreign actors work cheaper than Americans? Seems there's an awful lot of foreign actors playing Americans. While most are good actors and you can't tell unless you listen real close, I just don't get the point.

Phoenix is somehow "far from civilization" and Minneapolis is not?
