CBS Says Yes to Five New Dramas, Two New Comedies
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) - While CBS is keeping a tight lid on its fall 2003 schedule, various sources have indicated the Eye network will go forward with five new dramas and two new comedies. In addition, the network is expected to make several drastic changes including shifting "King of Queens" and "The Guardian" to new nights.

Here's a breakdown of the latest rumblings:

-- Mondays see "Yes, Dear" taking over the leadoff position at 8:00/7:00c followed by a relocated "Still Standing" at 8:30/7:30c. "Raymond" and "C.S.I.: Miami" will of course stay in their current homes, with Charlie Sheen's new comedy "Two and a Half Men" filling the gap between the two.

-- Tuesdays have "J.A.G." and its spin-off "N.C.I.S." (working title) filling the 8:00/7:00c and 9:00/8:00c hours respectively with "Judging Amy" rounding out the night at 10:00/9:00c.

-- Wednesdays are set to have a newly relocated "King of Queens" open a new one-hour comedy block along with newcomer "The Stones" at 8:30/7:30c. "60 Minutes II" will stick around at 9:00/8:00c followed by the Joe Pantoliano-led drama "Street Boss."

-- Thursdays, as expected, will see "Survivor," "C.S.I." and "Without a Trace" holding steady in their current slots.

-- Fridays are looking to lean on David E. Kelley's latest "The Brotherhood of Poland, N.H." kicking off the night at 8:00/7:00c followed by another newcomer, Jerry Bruckheimer's "The Unsolved" at 9:00/8:00c. "48 Hours Investigates" would then move back to its old Friday, 10:00/9:00c home.

-- Saturdays have former Friday drama "Hack" opening the night at 8:00/7:00c followed by former Tuesday drama "The Guardian." "The District" should get bumped back to its old 10:00/9:00c slot. "The Agency" is looking unlikely to make the cut.

-- And despite the rumors, CBS' Sunday movie night is set to remain intact at 9:00/8:00c along with Sunday mainstsay "60 Minutes" at 7:00/6:00c. The only addition: the new drama "Joan of Arcadia" in the 8:00/7:00c hour. Surprisingly "My Big Fat Greek Life" is expected to get the axe while "Becker" may return at midseason.
