CBS Dumps 'Handler' During Sweeps
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- The future of CBS' "The Handler" continued to get murkier today as the network has announced it will pre-empt both previously scheduled airings of the series during February sweeps.

The two installments, the show's 15th and 16th episodes this season, constitute the last of its production order. Repeats of CBS' various dramas are expected to fill the Friday, 10:00/9:00c hour after tonight's broadcast, beginning with a repeat of "Cold Case" next week.

It's not clear if and when "The Handler" will return to the Eye's schedule. For those interested, here's the official descriptions of the final two installments, taken from CBS' original press releases:

LILY�S UNDERCOVER MISSION TO INFILTRATE A MOB FAMILY LEADS TO A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL, ON "THE HANDLER," FRIDAY, FEB. 6

"The Wedding Party" -- Lily�s undercover mission to infiltrate a mob family leads to a marriage proposal from the boss�s son, on THE HANDLER, Friday, Feb. 6 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Rob Bailey directed the episode written by Jim Kouf and Alan DiFiore.

Joe assigns Lily to an undercover mission in which she must get close to the mob boss�s son. She succeeds at gaining his trust and the son quickly falls in love with her and proposes marriage. With Joe posing as the father of the bride and Marcy in place as the wedding planner, it�s looking like Lily might actually have to go through with the wedding in order for Joe to nail the mob boss and his cronies.
