With the pickup of two new comedies, Mike & Molly and Bleep My Dad Says yesterday, the closing of the deal with Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen last night, and today’s renewal of Rules of Engagement (its pickup contractually had to be a full season), CBS’ comedy pieces on the fall schedule become clearer. Once again, the network is going with 6 comedies: How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Rules Of Engagement, Mike & Molly and Bleep My Dad Says.
CBS is under deep lockdown, so this has not been corroborated with network sources. And I generally don’t post stories that are based on pure speculation rather than reporting. But this educated guess for CBS’ comedy scheduling plans by an industry insider is pretty darn good, so I’ll share it with you. Take it with as big a grain of salt as you wish:
8:00 The Big Bang Theory
8:30 Mike & Molly
9:00 Two And a Half Men
9:30 Bleep My Dad Says
8:00 How I Met Your Mother
8:30 Rules Of Engagement
What do you think? Have a better sked?
