No surprises there, we already went through this in a previous post. Let’s have recap anyway and a look at the five new shows CBS picked up for the fall.


    How I Met Your Mother – Oh, yeah! One of the best comedy on TV! All I can do is use Barney’s words, “This is, wait for it…LEGENDARY!” 😀
    CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY – All three CSI are back for another season. I don’t really watch them on a regular basis anymore, but I do enjoy the occasional episode.
    Rules of Engagement, The Adventures of Old Christine – I cannot give you an opinion on any of these two shows, because I don’t watch them either. Oh well, congratulations to them anyway for another season.
    Cold Case, The Unit, Numb3rs, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Without a Trace – Again, I don’t watch any of these on a regular basis, but have seen some episodes. I have to say that they are quality shows, so I am glad to see CBS kept some of its good shows.
    Shark – Is this show the only new CBS show that survived for a second season?! As you probably guessed, I don’t watch that show either. My friend does though, I’m sure he’ll be happy to hear the news.
    Ghost Whisperer – The only CBS one-hour show that I watch. I have to say that it has been getting better. The season finale was pretty good, and I am looking forward to next season.


I already went through my disappointments, so I won’t linger on.

    Jericho – We all know how I feel about that one, so I’ll just stop here. Damn you, CBS!
    The Class – One of the funniest shows on TV (of course after The Office and How I Met Your Mother). I can’t believe I won’t see anymore of Richie, that guy made me laugh out loud.
    Close To Home – I had watched the first episode, but never really got into it.


Here is what new shows CBS has to offer us for the fall:

    Viva Laughlin – Based on the BBC’s Viva Blackpool, Viva Laughlin is a story about Ripley Holden, a businessman, whose ambition is to run a casino in Laughlin, Nevada. The twist for this drama/mystery is that it’s also a musical. Brought to us by Hugh Jackman (“X-Men”). Wow, I am not sure if this is going to work, but I am a fan of musicals, so I’ll give it a shot. Plus I am really curious to see how it turns out.
    CaneCane is about a Cuban-American family running a successful rum and sugar business in South Florida. The conflicts arise when the father, Pancho, is made an offer by their rival to buy thousands of acres of sugar fields. With both his sons taking opposite sides, Pancho needs to figure out what to do. The show stars Jimmy Smits (The West Wing). I am definitely not convinced at all by this show so far. I would need to see a preview in order to decide whether or not to tune it, but so far it’s not looking good.
    Moonlight – Mick St. John is a private investigator who also happens to be a vampire. He uses his “skills” in order to help the living (really?! He doesn’t want to bite them?). To add another dimension, let’s add a love interest, Beth Turner, a reporter and (did I mention?) a human. You know, I am actually curious about that one. Who knows, it might be the best out of the five new CBS shows.
    Swingtown – Set in the suburban homes of the 1970s, Swingtown is the story about a conservative couple, Susan and Bruce Miller, who move their family to a Chicago suburb, only to find out that it is a town of swingers (and I mean that in the wife swapping kind of way). The show is slated for midseason, but I cannot wait to see this seemingly controversial show.
    The Big Bang Theory – Brainy best friends Leonard and Sheldon get a hot new neighbor, Penny. Needless to say, the two geeks don’t know how to act around her. Honestly, I am not feeling that one. Bring The Class back!
