Question: I'm a fan and read your column every week. I've watched the pilots for Forever and Red Band Society, and have added them to my list of shows I'll be watching. I hope they do well. I was wondering if you have seen them, and if so, what did you think? I found Red Band Society to be a feel-good show. I can't help but wonder, though, if it shouldn't be on a younger TV station like MTV, and the fact that it isn't makes me worry about its chances, as it is geared toward a younger audience. Forever is very Sherlock Holmes, which is right up my alley, and I love it whenever Ioan Gruffudd is on my TV screen. Do you think making the pilots available early hurts a TV show? What are your thoughts? - Carmelita
Breaking Bad's farewell tour went out on a high note, as the AMC drama won five awards including drama series at Monday's Primetime Emmy Awards, while Modern Family completed a historic five-peat.
Bad, which also scored drama series last year, became the sixth show to win for its final season after The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Barney Miller, Everybody Loves Raymond and The Sopranos. It's also the first to win the top prizes at ...

A curious rite of mid-May: Even as the broadcast networks are wrapping their regular seasons with a flurry of cliffhangers and finale events — farewell, Cristina Yang, and a toast to those soon-to-be-newlyweds Mitch and Cam — all eyes in the industry are already looking to the future, with a just-concluded Upfront Week of noisy presentations in New York in which new series and schedules are announced with a fanfare that probably beats the alternative: blowing taps for all the failed series announced last year at this time.
The Big Bang Theory
CBS is shaking up its schedule this fall. The Big Bang Theory is moving to Mondays at 8/7c while the network airs NFL Thursday Night Football. But starting on Oct. 30, The Big Bang will return to Thursdays at 8/7c. That same week will also see the series debut of new comedyThe McCarthys and the premiere of Two and a Half Men's final season, which will air Thursdays at 9/8c.
Other shows moving to new nights are NCIS: Los Angeles, which will head to Mondays at 10/9c, following new drama Scorpion; The Amazing Race, which will shift to Fridays at 8/7c to make way for Tea Leoni's Madam Secretary on Sundays at 8/7c; and CSI, which will relocate to Sundays at 10/9c and split the timeslot with new spin-off CSI: Cyber.

Allison Janney, Anna Faris
All season long, I've been likening CBS's freshman sleeper Mom to gritty sitcom foremothers like Roseanne and Grace Under Fire (shows on which executive producer Chuck Lorre famously spent time before his current CBS heyday). That comparison rings especially true in the first-season finale (Monday, 9:30/8:30c), as third-generation mom-too-soon Violet (Sadie Calvano) gives birth while her own imperfect mother, Christy (Anna Faris), and caustic grandma Bonnie (Allison Janney) look on with emotional empathy.
