CBS Midseason Plan Targets Flashpoint for Fridays
Leaving only ABC and the CW to show their hands, CBS unveiled its laundry list of midseason tweaks on Tuesday, and outside of naming an "official" replacement for The Ex List, there's little to raise an eyebrow at. In fact, only four days of the week — the Saturday wasteland included — are touched.
Most notably, Flashpoint — this past summer's top-rated scripted series — returns on Jan. 9, in the Fridays-at-9 slot.
On Feb. 12, the 18th edition of Survivor premieres, in its usual Thursday lead-off position. Three days later, The Amazing Race 14 gets underway, airing Sundays at 8.
Come April 19, Eleventh Hour takes a rest, ceding its choice après-CSI time slot to Harper's Island, the doomed destination wedding thriller starring Christopher Gorham and Harry Hamlin.
The Eye's only other add for midseason is Game Show in My Head, a hidden-camera entry from Ashton Kutcher. That will premiere Jan. 3, occupying Saturday's 8 o'clock hour.
