NCIS: New Orleans is filling out its ranks.
Chasing Life's Rob Kerkovich has been tapped to play...
Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer
Two and a Half Men has never been shy about pushing the envelope, and that won't change this fall.
Speaking to reporters after her executive session at the Television Critics Association fall previews, CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler revealed the final-season plan, which includes a fake gay relationship between Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Alan (Jon Cryer) — and a new half man (or woman)!

"Walden is going to have a major health scare and it is going to give him a little bit of an existential crisis," Tassler said...

Question: Once again, this year's Emmy nominations are predictably boring. What was the bigger snub: No Good Wife nomination for Best Drama (especially with a weak Downton Abbey season in its place) or no nomination for Tatiana Maslany for her web of roles on Orphan Black? (I already know the answer: Both snubs were egregious.) — Erin

NCIS, Big Bang Theory
CBS announced a "multi-phase rollout" of its fall programming Tuesday, with premiere dates for Survivor, NCIS, The Big Bang Theory and more stretching from September through the end of October.
Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki
Bazinga! The Big Bang Theory narrowly beat out NCIS to be named this past season's most-watched series in all of television. With final season averages that include "live plus 7" time-shifted viewing data now available, Bang averaged 23.1 million viewers for the season ending May 24, while NCIS averaged 22.4 million.
Michael Weatherly has signed a new two-year deal to stay on NCIS, Deadline.com reports.
Weatherly's agreement, which also includes...
Robin Lord Taylor, Benjamin McKenzie
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.
CBS has released trailers for its new series, including procedural spin-off NCIS: New Orleans, the Kevin Williamson drama Stalker, and comedy The McCarthys. Check out the first looks below:
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.
