Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones

Come Monday, Sept. 19, we will know the fate of Charlie Harper.

The network announced Wednesday that Sept. 19 will "officially open" its season, with the Season 7 premiere of How I Met Your Mother bowing at 8/7c, the Season 9 premiere of Two and a Half Men showing up at 9/8c, new show 2 Broke Girls debuting at 9:30/8:30c (a special time) and Hawaii Five-O returning for Season 2 at 10/9c.

Sept. 19 is not strictly the first time CBS will begin airing its fall slate of programming — Survivor: South Pacific is set to begin Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 8/7c.

Question: I am thrilled! Laurence Fishburne is leaving CSI. I thought that the mothership of this franchise lost a lot when Grissom left, but bringing in Laurence Fishburne's character was the worst possible mistake ever.

Ask Matt: Finale Fever, Cougar Town, The Killing, Cancellation Fallout and More!

Courteney Cox

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I know that last week was packed with season finales, talk of cancellations, and predictions of the successes for next fall, but I hope The Good Wife might get some attention. I'm in no way a TV expert, but the gestalt of the last scene was surprising. From the editing to the acting to the music (so out of place for the show, but somehow appropriate at the same time), those few minutes just felt like what great TV is.

Premise: Two nerdy physicists share an apartment and an unlikely friendship with their beautiful neighbor with whom one of them is infatuated. Like the universe after the big bang, the show's popularity expanded, thanks to breakout star Jim Parsons, along with the chemistry among the friends and the developing romance between Leonard and Penny. The addition of Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik in later seasons also enhanced the stories and relationships of the leads.
