CBS ANNOUNCES 2011-2012 PREMIERE DATES (UPDATED)

CBS, America's most watched network, will officially open the 2011-2012 season on Monday, Sept. 19, highlighted by the special series debut of its new comedy, 2 BROKE GIRLS, which premieres at a special time behind the season premiere of TWO AND A HALF MEN.

CBS will once again launch the majority of its new and returning programming during premiere week (Sept. 19-25). SURVIVOR returns one week earlier (Wednesday, Sept. 14) for the ninth time in the past 10 seasons with a 90-minute premiere, paired with the 90-minute finale of BIG BROTHER for an all-reality night. The comedies MIKE & MOLLY (Monday, Sept. 26) and HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN (Thursday, Sept. 29) will debut one week later. RULES OF ENGAGEMENT premieres on its new night and time period on Saturday, Oct. 8.

The new drama, PERSON OF INTEREST, opens Thursday, Sept. 22 preceded by back-to-back episodes of THE BIG BANG THEORY. UNFORGETTABLE premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 and A GIFTED MAN on Friday, Sept. 23.

"Our playbook is pretty consistent: wherever and whenever possible we use established successful series to introduce new shows," said Kelly Kahl, Senior Executive Vice President, CBS Primetime. "We've also asked a couple of our strongest series to work overtime during premiere week in order to support the new series and bolster our performance."
