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.
Get all the details, after the jump.
Eleventh Hour stars Rufus Sewell as a biophysicist who investigates unusual scientific happenings.
CBS has greenlit five additional scripts for Jerry Bruckheimer's Eleventh Hour, bringing the drama's freshman run to 18 total episodes.
To date, Eleventh Hour has averaged a decent 12 million viewers in its après-CSI berth. That said, the thinking is that CBS came up shy of a full-season pick-up because ...

Harry Hamlin has sailed into a role on CBS' upcoming Harper's Island, a horror drama series expected to air midseason.The series will focus on a group of friends who are terrorized on an island off the Seattle coast, where they've met for a destination wedding. Hamlin will play the gregarious, womanizing uncle of the groom (Ugly Betty's Christopher Gorham), says the Reporter. (The role was played by Bill Pullman in the "drama presentation" originally shown at TCA, but you always had a feeling that was done as a favor to someone.)In addition to showing off his footwork on a season of Dancing with the Stars, Hamlin an original L.A.

Per the Reporter, Ugly Betty's Henry has been tapped to play another Henry this time the groom-to-be, versus a prospective fiancé on CBS' midseason drama about a group of friends who venture to an isle off of Seattle.

Gorham apparently replaces whoever that was playing the fiancé in the original pilot. The Gorham news is but the latest wrinkle in Betty's love life. Weeks ago, an ABC rep told me viewers "have not seen the last of Henry," though that may just mean he's in the season premiere to wrap up the marriage proposal story. Freddy Rodriguez right now is slated for just one more appearance as G...
