The Biz: A TV Producer for All Seasons

26 December 2010 3:38 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Viewers of the CBS hit Blue Bloods may feel like they've gone through a time warp when they see executive producer Leonard Goldberg's credit on the screen. One of network TV's most successful execs, he oversaw programming at ABC in the 1960s, produced such hits as Charlie's Angels and Starsky & Hutch with Aaron Spelling in the 1970s and was responsible for some of the most memorable made-for-tv movies of the '80s before heading into film. Goldberg, who turns 77 this month, told us what it's like to be back on the front lines of prime time.

Midseason Schedule Shift: CBS Moves ‘Blue Bloods’ & ‘The Defenders’

23 December 2010 1:03 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

CBS has been pretty lucky this season. Unlike its rival networks, which have had to cut mediocre shows (and even some good ones), CBS has had the luxury of keeping all of its new shows on the air. In fact, the network has found enough success with its lineup of programs that it now has the luxury to spice things up a bit with new scheduling.

In a recent news release, CBS announced that it was moving the relatively popular cop drama Blue Bloods from its Friday night slot to Wednesday nights at 10:00 pm for a four-week run beginning January 19th.

Given the fact that Friday is a weaker night for TV competition, CBS is testing whether Blue Bloods‘ success (it was number one among 25-54-year-olds in its former timeslot) can carry over to a ...

'Defenders' moves to Friday, 'Criminal Minds' twofer on CBS' midseason schedule

22 December 2010 9:15 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

CBS has set its midseason schedule, and since the network is pretty healthy this season it's more about tweaks than a radical makeover.

The Eye will debut three new scripted shows and Paula Abdul's competition series "Live to Dance" in the first few months of 2011. It's also moving a couple of its current shows around, giving "Blue Bloods" a four-week tryout on Wednesday nights and sending "The Defenders" to Fridays to fill the spot being vacated by "Medium."

The new scripted shows are "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior," a spinoff of "Criminal Minds" that will air after its parent show on Wednesday nights; comedy "Mad Love," which slides into the post-"How I Met Your Mother" slot on Mondays in late February; and "Chaos," a drama about CIA officers that will debut on Fridays in April. "Live to Dance" premieres Tuesday, Jan. 4, the moves to Wednesdays the following night, holding »

CBS Announces Midseason Schedule

22 December 2010 7:04 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

CBS is one of the last networks to announce its midseason schedule and it turns out it contains a few shake-ups.  The ending of Medium and some schedule changes will make way for a few new midseason shows.

The first big change is the time-slot switch between Blue Bloods and The Defenders.  Blue Bloods had been averaging a respectable 12 million viewers on Friday nights, but CBS has decided to move it into the 10:00 p.m. spot on Wednesday, previously held by The Defenders.  Curiously, though, Blue Bloods will only remain on Wednesday nights for 4 consecutive weeks.  The Defenders, in turn, will be moving to 8:00 p.m. on Friday nights and is expected to remain on Friday nights for the remainder of the season.

A new Criminal Minds spin-off (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) staring Forest Whitaker, and two new comedies, Mad Love (starring Jason Biggs, Sarah Chalke, Tyler Labine »

CBS Moves The Defenders and Blue Bloods; Help or Hurt?

21 December 2010 7:33 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

CBS is planning to switch a couple of their freshman dramas around for midseason. Blue Bloods, which currently airs on Friday nights at 10pm, will move to Wednesdays at 10pm beginning January 19th. The Defenders will shift from Wednesdays at 10pm to Fridays at 8pm beginning February 4th (filling cancelled Medium's timeslot).

On Friday nights, Blue Bloods has been averaging a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.22 million viewers. While that's a lot of total viewers, the demo numbers are about what Numb3rs was averaging last season, before CBS cancelled it. The move to Wednesday nights will likely show the network whether or not the series is capable of doing better in the demo department. It'll have four weeks in the timeslot before heading back to Fridays at 10pm on February 11th. Spin-off Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior takes over the Wednesday night slot on February »

CBS Reveals Midseason Plan: What's New? What's Moved?

21 December 2010 6:44 PM, PST | Movieline - TVline | See recent Movieline - TVline news »

CBS on Tuesday announced its midseason game plan, and given the network's embarrassment of riches, none of the changes merits any cause for alarm. Kicking things off -- as a sort of placeholder/possible test drive -- Tom Selleck's Blue Bloods, which has been handily winning Friday nights, will move to Wednesdays at 10/9c for four weeks starting Jan. 19. »

CBS mid-season schedule tries 'Blue Bloods,' 'Criminal Minds' spin-off on Wednesday

21 December 2010 5:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a season where precious little has gone right for the other broadcast networks in terms of new shows, almost everything has gone at least decently for CBS, which hasn't had to cancel any of its new shows, even though none have turned out to be a breakout hit. So it's not surprising that CBS would both be the last of the Big Four to announce a mid-season schedule, and that the mid-season schedule would be more about tweaks than wholesale changes. The big developments: * Starting Jan. 19, "Blue Bloods" (which has drawn a solid but old-skewing audience on Fridays) »

CBS Announces Mid-Season Schedule: 'Mad Love' To Monday And 'Chaos' To Friday

21 December 2010 5:29 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

My colleague Michael Ausiello already scooped CBS' biggest scheduling change this midseason: freshman cop family drama Blue Bloods will get a four-week trial run in the Wednesday 10 Pm slot beginning Jan. 19, while the current occupant of the Wednesday 10 Pm time period, freshman legal dramedy The Defenders, will relocate to the Friday 8 Pm berth on Feb. 4, following the series finale of veteran paranormal drama Medium. No surprise in the launch strategy for CBS' midseason drama Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, which will succeed Blue Bloods in the Wednesday 10 Pm slot beginning Feb. 16 when Blue Bloods will return to its Friday 10 Pm home. The Criminal Minds spinoff was widely expected to air behind the mothership series the way NCIS: La follows NCIS on Tuesday. But somewhat unexpected was the harsh treatment of CBS' other midseason drama series Chaos. CBS brass fought hard for the series, whose midseason pickup originally fell through after a »

'Hawaii Five-0' and the NFL: The fall's most and least DVR'd shows

21 December 2010 3:17 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

DVR use may have gone up this fall compared to last, but the shows people are recording haven't changed a whole lot.

"Hawaii Five-0" began the 2010-11 season as the most DVR'd show on television, and it's kept that title through 11 weeks. CBS' crime show is adding an average of almost 3.2 million viewers per episode, according to Nielsen's "live-plus-7" ratings. The show's same-day average audience is 11.5 million people, but that jumps to 14.7 million with a week of DVR use, a gain of 27.7 percent.

It will be interesting to see if people keep recording "Five-0" at such a high rate once the new year starts or if, once "Monday Night Football" ends and that audience is freed up, a few more people start watching the show in its regular timeslot.

For the most part, shows that do well with live viewers also are pretty heavily recorded: "The Mentalist," "Modern Family," "Glee »

CBS TV Show Rankings for 2010-11 season [week of 12/12/10 update]

19 December 2010 12:22 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Which CBS TV shows will be cancelled or renewed for the 2011-12 season? With the greatest number of series on the air, CBS continues to be the most-watched network. Other than now-cancelled Medium, they really don't have any big problems on the schedule.

The Sunday night line-up -- 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss and CSI: Miami -- have seen some off nights but they've also endured annoying overruns caused by football games. Of any, CSI: Miami is in the most danger. It's been on the air a long time and is likely not cheap.

Blue Bloods and CSI: NY are definitely on the fence as they're both averaging a 1.8 -- about what Numb3rs and Medium were averaging last year. In that case, one was renewed and the other was cancelled so it's hard to say. It seems likely that only »
