CBS on Monday began tipping its hand, ordering several new shows.

On the drama front, there is Cane, starring NYPD Blue alum Jimmy Smits as the head of a Latin-American family in the rum biz; Moonlight (FKA Twilight), starring Alex O'Loughlin as a P.I. who is, by the way, a vampire; Viva Laughlin, a Hugh Jackman-produced import of a BBC series, concerning a family man who dreams of opening a casino in Laughlin, Nevada; and Swingtown, an Ice Storm-esque look at couples swapping partners in the '70s.

The laffer bound for the Eye is The Big Bang Theory, starring Roseanne's Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons as science geeks who befriend a party girl, ( 8 Simple Rules' Kaley Cuoco).

CBS presents its full schedule on Wednesday. - Matt Webb Mitovich
