CBS has announced the midseason premiere dates for returning comedy Rules of Engagement as well as freshman drama Golden Boy.
Golden Boy, which stars Theo James as a gifted cop who rises through the ranks to become the youngest police commissioner in New York City, will air a special preview on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 10/9c following the NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles.
ABC is probably saying "TGIF." The network was No. 1 Friday night in all six half-hour slots, scoring season highs in total viewers and the adults 18-to-49 demographic.

I'm a sucker for tradition, and there are probably worse ideas than ABC reviving the "TGIF" concept of family-friendly sitcoms on Friday night. Depending on your generation, you may find yourself thinking nostalgically of watching The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family with the babysitter, or growing up with the Full House-Family Matters-Boy Meets World-Perfect Strangers brand of ABC comedy. Hold on to those memories, because unfortunately, there are few shows this season worse or more grating than tonight's Malibu Country (8:31/7:31c), where the beachfront corn grows awfully and annoyingly high.
Made in Jersey
The fall TV season has seen its first casualty.
CBS has pulled Made in Jersey from its Friday-night lineup and will replace it with new episodes of Undercover Boss beginning Nov. 2, the network announced Wednesday.

Question: I was really excited for Cougar Town to come back but disappointed at the ratings.
Maybe because it qualifies as fantasy fare in the Great Recession, Undercover Boss grabbed its biggest audience since January 2011, according to Nielsen overnights. Meanwhile, the implosion of Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries set series records for E!.
Eli Manning of the New York Giants
Fox's NFC Championship that saw the New York Giants beat the San Francisco 49ers in sudden-death overtime grabbed a huge audience that's becoming typical for the conference championship game that airs in prime time, according to preliminary Nielsen data.
Dan Bell, a Fox Sports vice president, tweeted that the game was the highest rated NFC title game in 17 years (going back to the 1995 game when the 49ers played the Dallas Cowboys).
